The Associated Press has released their first and second team All-Pro rosters, and four Los Angeles Rams made the cut.
Here’s the list of first-team All-Pros which include RB Todd Gurley and DT Aaron Donald:

Here’s the list of second-team All-Pros which include P Johnny Hekker and ST Cory Littleton (not Littlejohn):

The sure-fire shoe-in was obviously going to be Aaron Donald, as he set not only team records but NFL records (all-time single-season DT sack record, Rams single-season sack record).
Todd Gurley had a shot to lead the league in rushing yardage, yards from scrimmage, and total touchdowns (he won the TD title), though his final two weeks were spent inactive on the sidelines due to a knee injury. Still, Gurley is rewarded as a first-team All-Pro at RB which he was highly deserving of.
Cory Littleton and Johnny Hekker both make it in as second-team All-Pros on the special teams unit. Littleton has proven to arguably be the best punt blocker in the NFL, and Hekker has a career’s list of achievements as one of the best punters in football.
Congrats to these guys!
