The Associated Press has announced its 2009 All-Pro Team and the Vikings led all NFL squads with 4 selections.
The Vikings had 2 offensive players honored – G Steve Hutchinson and RB Adrian Peterson – as well as 2 defensive players – DE Jared Allen and DT Kevin Williams.
An All-Pro distinction is more prestigious than a Pro Bowl berth because the All-Pro team is reserved for a smaller portion of elite players. They are the best of the best. Pro Bowl rosters consist of several players at each position, while the All-Pro team is made up of just 12 offensive players, 12 defensive players and 3 specialists.
The quartet of Vikings named to this year’s All-Pro team have an impressive number of 1st-team selections. Together they have 16 first-team selections. The breakdown is as follows: Hutchinson (6), Williams (5), Allen (3) and Peterson (2).
