Browns LT Joe Thomas Named to 2015 NFL All-Pro Team

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Associated Press 2015 NFL All-Pro teams were unveiled on Friday, and the Cleveland Browns had one player who made the list of first-teamers: LT Joe Thomas.

There are 50 representatives who vote; they select two offensive tackles, meaning 100 votes are dispersed at the position. Thomas received the most votes (32), with Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth having the second most votes (27). This is the sixth time in Thomas' career that he has been selected as a first-team All-Pro, and the third time in as many seasons.

Thomas is the team's only All-Pro for the second year in a row. RT Mitchell Schwartz also earned some recognition, receiving the sixth-most votes (4) for offensive tackles. I don't know if the NFL still does third-teamers for the All-Pro honors, but if they do, Schwartz would be on it. No other player received any votes.

What do you think, Browns fans? Were there any Browns besides Thomas who you feel should have received greater recognition, or even a vote? Given the way the season went, I'd say the voters got it right -- after Thomas and Schwartz, the next two players who made an impact were TE Gary Barnidge and QB Josh McCown. The elite quarterback class is too deep for McCown to get a vote, and with only one tight end position available, TE Rob Gronkowski hogged all the publicity with 48 votes.
