The Associated Press released its 2021 All-Pro teams on Friday, and five players were named unanimous choices, including Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp, Green Bay Packers wideout Davante Adams, and Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor.

The other two players who appeared in all 50 media members' teams were Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt and Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

Donald has now earned first-team All-Pro nods for six straight seasons since he entered the NFL in 2014. The three-time Defensive Player of the Year was a unanimous selection in three of the last four years.

Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers, the MVP favorite, received 34 votes and was named the first-team quarterback for the second consecutive season. Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady got the second-team spot under center with 16 votes.

The Packers, Colts, Ravens, Rams, and Cowboys had an NFL-high three first-team All-Pro picks each.
