DeAndre Hopkins, J.J. Watt Named To Associated Press NFL All-Pro First Team

These were no-doubters, but it’s still nice to see happen.

DeAndre Hopkins and J.J. Watt have been simply incredible this season. Their excellence has now been appropriately rewarded by spots on the Associated Press All-Pro first team.

For those unfamiliar with the process, this is “the” All-Pro team. Fifty NFL writers cast a vote. Nuk reportedly led all offensive players in the NFL by getting 46 of those 50 possible votes.

Congrats to Hopkins and Watt on this extremely impressive honor. I’m betting that while appreciative, both have their sights set firmly on beating the Colts tomorrow instead of celebrating.
