The praise continues to roll in for the Texans' All-Galaxy defensive end. But did DeAndre Hopkins get shafted?

For Houston Texans fans (or really, anyone who has watched J.J. Watt play), the news that J.J. Watt was named to the Associated Press All-Pro Team for the 2015 season is hardly a surprise. What is noteworthy, however, is that the Texans' defensive end was a unanimous pick for the team this season.

Watt was a unanimous pick at defensive end for this season's team, as was Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson.

Entirely righteous. Watt's that good. Next stop: Defensive Player of the Year for a third time.

On another All-Pro note, Julio Jones and Antonio Brown got the nod at wide receiver. Were they more deserving than DeAndre Hopkins?

UPDATE: Yes, I do believe Nuk got the shaft. He only got three (3!) votes for the All-Pro team despite having five (5!) different quarterbacks under center this year. Here's the voting breakdown at wide receiver:

Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh, 49; Julio Jones, Atlanta, 41; Odell Beckham Jr., New York Giants, 3; Brandon Marshall, New York Jets, 3; DeAndre Hopkins, Houston, 3; Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona, 1.
