Three Patriots have been named to the 2010 AP NFL All-Pro team, including quarterback Tom Brady -- the league's only unanimous selection for the year.
Brady, who threw for 36 touchdowns and 3,900 yards including a record-breaking 308 attempts without an interception, is making just his second appearance on the All-Pro team after coming in just half a vote short of a unanimous selection in 2007 (Brady split said vote with Brett Favre). While the year ended in disappointing fashion for the future hall-of-famer, that doesn't change the fact that Brady put up one of the most dominant seasons by a quarterback in recent memory.
Joining Brady are inside linebacker Jerod Mayo, whose 175 tackles led the league, and guard Logan Mankins. Mankins' appearance comes despite missing a large portion of the season holding out over a contract dispute. Like Brady, Mankins also appeared on the 2007 All-Pro team.
Rookie cornerback Devin McCourty's 17 votes came in just short of Nnamdi Asomugha (20) and Darrelle Revis (19), while Vince Wilfork's 15 votes were good for third place amongst tackles. Sebastian Vollmer picked up seven votes, while Rob Gronkowski and Matt Light each received only one.
