Prisco's All-Pro team
QB -- Peyton Manning. Broncos -- The guy is on a pace to come close to throwing for 6,000 yards. He has 29 touchdown passes. Unreal.
RB -- LeSean McCoy, Eagles -- He leads the NFL in rushing with 733 yards and has been special in the Eagles' wide-open offense. He is a true "air" back.
WR -- Calvin Johnson, Lions -- He has nine touchdown catches and is averaging 17.5 per catch. Did you see him against the Cowboys?
WR -- Jordy Nelson, Packers -- He has seven touchdown catches and is averaging 16.6 per catch on his 39 catches.
Slot receiver -- Wes Welker, Broncos -- He has nine touchdown catches and 50 receptions. Manning loves him.
TE -- Jimmy Graham, Saints -- Despite having foot problems, he continues to put up big numbers. He is a receiver playing tight end.
LT -- Joe Thomas, Browns -- He's done an exceptional job in pass protection. That's why I give him the edge over some other tackles.
LG -- Evan Mathis, Eagles -- He's a battler who will fight and move and does a solid a job in the run game in pass protection. He never lets up.
C -- Manny Ramirez, Broncos -- He moved over from guard because of injuries and has done a great job in a complicated offense for centers. He's smart, and it shows.
RG -- David DeCastro, Steelers -- He has become the physical mauler the Steelers thought they were getting when they drafted him in the first round last year.
RT -- Sebastian Vollmer, Patriots -- It's too bad he went down for the season with a leg injury. He was playing at a high level and was my pick at right tackle over Andre Smith.
These players play in a 3-4 system
DE -- J.J. Watt, Texans -- He isn't on pace to get his 20-20-20, but he's still having a special season. He sees a ton of doubles.
NT -- Dontari Poe, Chiefs -- He's been a force against the run and has 4 1/2 sacks. He's one of the most-improved players. I picked him over Damon Harrison of the Jets.
DE -- Muhammad Wilkerson, Jets -- He has seven sacks and has been a force against the run. He will be spending a lot of time in Hawaii the next decade.
OLB -- Robert Mathis, Colts -- He leads the NFL in sacks with 11 1/2. At 31, he isn't slowing down.
OLB -- Justin Houston, Chiefs -- He is tied for second in the league with 11 sacks. He's also good against the run.
These players play in a 4-3 system
DE -- Michael Johnson, Bengals -- He isn't piling up sack numbers, but he is playing at a high level. He gets pressures, he's good against the run and he will be paid a lot of money as a free agent next spring.
DT -- Jason Hatcher, Cowboys -- He has seven sacks from his tackle spot. That's impressive.
DT -- Ndamukong Suh, Lions -- Forget all the stuff he does in terms of being dirty, he's a heck of a player and he's playing at a high level.
DE -- Robert Quinn, Rams -- He has 10 sacks in eight games and showed Monday night against Seattle how good he is rushing the passer.
OLB -- Lavonte David, Bucs -- He is one of the few bright spots for a team that is winless. He plays hard all the time and has a nose for the football.
OLB -- Vontaze Burfict, Bengals -- What a pleasant surprise he's been for this team. In his second season, he has emerged as a star in the making.
MLB/ILB -- Sean Lee, Cowboys -- He is having a special season, He can play the run and he's really good against the pass. He has four interceptions.
CB -- Vontae Davis, Colts -- He's done a great job in coverage. You saw it firsthand against DeMaryius Thomas a couple of weeks ago.
CB -- Richard Sherman, Seahawks -- He is brash, loud and backs it up. I love the way he plays.
Nickel corner -- Tramaine Brock, 49ers -- He took over as the nickel corner when Nnamdi Asmougha went down and he isn't going to give the job back. He has three picks.
SS -- T.J. Ward, Browns -- This kid impressed me last season, but he's been even better this time around. He's made a lot of plays.
FS -- Devin McCourty, Patriots -- He is proving what I think will be a trend: The best free safeties will be converted corners. He is always around the football.
K -- Matt Prater, Broncos -- He hasn't missed a kick yet and he's 3-for-3 from 50-plus yards. He also leads the league in touchbacks on kickoffs.
P -- Brandon Fields, Dolphins -- He leads in net yards and gross yards.
Returner -- Cordarrelle Patterson, Vikings -- Did you see him fly down the field on that 109-yard kickoff return Sunday night? It was his second touchdown return of the season.
Special Teams Player -- Marcus Easley, Bills -- He has made 12 tackles so far and seems to show up in coverage a lot.
