Aaron Rodgers easily
edged Drew Brees to be the Associated Press' first-team All-Pro quarterback, winning by a 47 1/2 to 2 1/2-vote margin.
Lions WR Calvin Johnson and Vikings RE Jared Allen were the top vote getters, each coming within one vote of being unanimous All-Pros. The Rodgers vs. Brees voting could provide a hint as to the AP's leanings for NFL MVP
. Patrick Peterson was the only rookie voted All-Pro, making it as a returner. LeSean McCoy and Maurice Jones-Drew were the first-team running backs, Rob Gronkowski the tight end, and Wes Welker was the wideout opposite Megatron.
