2019 All-Pro Team: Jackson, McCaffrey highlight roster

The NFL's new wave has arrived.

Fourteen new faces filled the Associated Press NFL All-Pro Team for the 2019 season, released Friday. Chief among them: first-time first-teamers Ravens quarterback and likely MVP Lamar Jackson and Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey.

The latter became the third running back in NFL history to finish with 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving in the same season in 2019, and was so good, he earned two first-team slots: one at running back, and the other as the league's best flex option. His first-team selection follows a second-team nod in 2018.

History's impact didn't stop there. Saints receiver Michael Thomas, new owner of the NFL's single-season receptions record (149), was one of two unanimous selections. Patriots shutdown corner Stephon Gilmore was the other, leading New England's top-ranked defense that got off to an incredible start in the takeaway department.

There were plenty of repeat names on the All-Pro roster as well, with Aaron Donald and Bobby Wagner each making their fifth appearances among a handful of others. Also making his fifth appearance: 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman.

Buoyed by Baltimore's five All-Pro selections, the AFC claimed the throne for most All-Pros with 16. The NFC earned 13 nods.
