Browns Have Five Players Named to 2013 NFL All-Pro Teams

Five Cleveland Browns players made the 2013 AP All-Pro team

The 2013 AP All-Pro team is out, and the Cleveland Browns are well represented. So well represented, in fact, that the Browns have more All-Pro players than wins. Here are the Browns who were named to the All-Pro teams:

Josh Gordon–First Team
Joe Thomas–First Team
Alex Mack–Second Team
Joe Haden–Second Team
T.J. Ward–Second Team

The list of Browns who made the All-Pro teams is similar to the list who made the Pro Bowl roster, only T.J. Ward replaces Jordan Cameron as the Browns' fifth representative. Ward still has a chance to make the Pro Bowl because he is currently an alternate.

Interestingly, the Browns are easily the most represented team among AFC North teams on the All-Pro list. In fact, the Browns have more All-Pro players (and more first-teamers) than the rest of the AFC North combined. Other AFC North players making the list are:

Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers–2nd Team
A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals–2nd Team
Vontaze Burfict, Cincinnati Bengals–2nd Team
Justin Tucker, Baltimore Ravens–1st Team

In my option, Josh Gordon was deserving of making the first team if you're evaluating the season a player had, but not if you're evaluating how good the player is. He should easily make it based on his play–he led all receivers in yards and yards per game-–but if Cincinnati offered a straight up trade for A.J. Green I think I would do the deal.

The rest of the players seem appropriately evaluated, as I think Joe Haden probably gave up one too many touchdowns to pry Patrick Peterson or Richard Sherman out of a first team spot. It was nice to see Alex Mack and T.J. Ward finally get some love, but we risk losing them to free agency in the offseason.

Do you agree or disagree with the Browns' representation on the All-Pro team? Let your voice be heard in the comments.
