The Associated Press has announced it All Pro rosters after the final voting from a panel of 50 NFL media members. The Patriots have more than a handful of players receiving mention.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski was the only unanimous player elected at any position, receiving all 50 votes for the best tight end in the NFL. (edit: Houston's JJ Watt was also unanimous, but 45 media members named him DE, while 5 ranked him at DT, which means he's 1st team DE and 2nd team DT).

Cornerback Darrelle Revis led the league in votes at his position, receiving 42 votes, sharing the First Team All Pro distinction with Seattle's Richard Sherman.

Kicker Stephen Gostkowski made the Second Team All Pro with 21 votes, just behind the Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri and his 25 votes.

Other players receiving votes:

Quarterback Tom Brady came in 3rd, behind the Packers Aaron Rodgers and the Cowboys Tony Romo. The Broncos Peyton Manning didn't receive any votes.

Tackle Sebastian Vollmer would have made Third Team All Pro with 3 votes, and was the highest voted right tackle.

Guard Dan Connolly received one head-scratching vote.

Linebackers Dont'a Hightower and Jamie Collins each received two votes and would have split a Third Team All Pro rating.

Safety Devin McCourty only received two votes, but he was listed as a strong safety for some bizarre reason.

Congratulations to the Patriots who received praise for their high level of play. There are no glaring omissions, and apart from Connolly's vote everyone received a fair degree of respect from the voters.
