NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

On Friday morning, the AP All Pro team was released, revealing that, once again, Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner had made the team:

Wagner led the league in tackles and had the third most sacks by any standup linebacker (trailing the co-leaders by only half a sack) in the NFL. Wagner has been named to the All Pro team for three consecutive years now (second team in 2015) and is the only Seahawk on the 2016 first team list.

Tyler Lockett was also named as the second team All Pro returner, per John Boyle of the Seahawks:

Other Seattle defenders came close but, ultimately, did not make the list:

Wagner has been a Defensive Player of the Year candidate throughout the season, so it is great to see his on-field dominance translate into accolades. A second round pick out of Utah State in 2012, Wagner’s two first-team All-Pro nominations is the second-most in the draft class behind fellow inside linebacker Luke Kuechly of the Carolina Panthers, who has three. Could Wagner join Kuechly as a DPOY?

The NFL Honors ceremony will be held the night before the Super Bowl, on February 4th.
