NFL: Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

First Team


QB Jared Goff Rams (Cal) - Aaron Rodgers is still the best, but he was injured most of the season, so Goff slides up. He is turning into a young star at quarterback and led the Rams to a division title.

RB C.J. Anderson Denver (Cal) - Had the best year of his career, breaking the 1,000-yard mark.

RB Marshawn Lynch Oakland (Cal) - Marshawn closed strong in his out of retirement season, finishing with nearly 900 yards and seven touchdown runs.

WR Keenan Allen Chargers (Cal) - Healthy, he bounced back with the best season of his career. He had more than 100 receptions for more than 1,300 yards and grabbed six scores.

WR Marvin Jones Detroit (Cal) - A big play receiver who had the best year of his career with more than 1,000 yards receiving and nine touchdown catches.

TE Rob Gronkowski New England (Arizona) - Nothing else needs to be said about this guy. The best tight end in the league.

T David Bahktiari Green Bay (Colorado) - Has become the Pac-12 best offensive tackle alum in the league in a hurry.

T Mitchell Schwartz Kansas City (Cal) - He has seemed to get better as his career has gone on as was one of the league’s best tackles this year.

G David DeCastro Pittsburgh (Stanford) - Has evolved into one of the league’s unquestioned best offensive guards.

C Alex Mack Atlanta (Cal) - One of the best centers in the entire league put together another great season.

DT Jurrell Casey Tennessee (USC) - Another mainstay as one of the best defensive linemen in the league.

DT Star Lotulelei Carolina (Utah) - An anchor for a tough Carolina defense that bounced back in 2017.
