The Denver Broncos are well represented in the 2010 Associated Press All-Pro Team. Tackle Ryan Clady and linebacker Elvis Dumervil were both named first-team All-Pros, while safety Brian Dawkins was named second-team.
“To be selected for the All-Pro team is really overwhelming to me,” Clady told the Associated Press. “There are so many great tackles playing right now. To be recognized among them is truly a blessing. I would like to thank my teammates and coaches for this honor.”
All three were selected to the Pro Bowl this year, firsts for Clady and Dumervil. Clady was named second-team All Pro as a rookie in 2008.
It’s only the fifth time in the past 20 years that the Broncos have boasted multiple first-teamers (2005, 1996-98).
And if my quick scan of the All-Pro team list was correct, the only other players in the division to make first-team All-Pro were specialists Shane Lechler and Nate Kaeding. The Broncos have closed the talent gap in the AFC West; it’s time they took control.
