Watt, Gronkowski unanimous AP All-Pros; Dallas leads with 4

NEW YORK (AP) - J.J. Watt and Rob Gronkowski are unanimous selections for the 2014 Associated Press NFL All-Pro team announced Friday.

Houston's Watt did it in an unusual manner. He was listed on all 50 ballots by a nationwide panel of media members who regularly cover the league, with 45 of the votes for defensive end and the other five for defensive tackle. So he actually was a first-team end and a second-team tackle in gaining his third straight selection.

No such confusion for New England's Gronkowski, who grabbed all the votes for tight end.

Dallas led all teams with four All-Pros, including guard Zach Martin, the only rookie on the squad. League rushing leader DeMarco Murray, tackle Tyron Smith and wide receiver Dez Bryant made it.

Seattle and Pittsburgh each had three All-Pros. There were 16 AFC players and 11 from the NFC.
