Minnesota Vikings Linebacker Eric Kendricks Named to NFL All-Pro Team
Eric Kendricks may not have been granted a vote to the NFL Pro Bowl this season, but the standout Minnesota Vikings linebacker has taken home NFL All-Pro honors.
The Associated Press has announced its selections for the 2019 NFL All-Pro team. Players such as Lamar Jackson, Christian McCaffrey, and Aaron Donald are on the list as expected. Kendricks is the only player from the Vikings to be picked for the list this season.
A Pro Bowl snub, Kendricks joins Bobby Wagner from the Seahawks and Demario Davis from the Saints as the linebackers selected for the All-Pro team. Kendricks has helped lead the Vikings defense with 110 total tackles, four tackles-for-loss, and two fumble recoveries.
This is the first time that Kendricks as been named to the NFL All-Pro team. He was previously awarded a spot on the All-Rookie Team by the Pro Football Writers Association back in 2015. Kendricks was drafted in the second round, 45th overall, in the 2015 NFL Draft by the Vikings.
