No Patriots named First-Team All-Pro, two players get Second-Team honors

By Isaiah Houde

Following the 2021 season, there were no New England Patriots named to the Associated Press First-Team All-Pro team.

Although it hasn’t officially been announced by AP, there were two Patriots who were given Second-Team honors. J.C. Jackson had the third-most votes at cornerback and Matthew Slater had the second-most votes as a special-teamer. Jackson, in his fourth season, earned his first All Pro nod and Slater earned his fifth. Jackson and Slater, along with Matthew Judon, were the three players who were named Pro Bowlers.

Judon, Nick Folk and Shaq Mason were all candidates that played well enough to potentially earn All Pro honors.

Here’s a look at the full list for First-Team All-Pro honors.
