Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald has been named a First-Team All-Pro by the Associated Press (AP), the news organization announced Friday morning. It marks the fifth-consecutive season he has received such recognition.
Donald received 49 votes from the national 50-member media panel tasked with assembling the team, one shy of being unanimous first team selection in back-to-back seasons. He led the Rams with 12.5 sacks this season, adding 20 tackles for loss.
The former University of Pittsburgh star's 2019 campaign was also highlighted by him earning his sixth NFC Player of the Week honor of his career after he collected four total tackles, including two for loss, plus two sacks, four QB hits and one pass breakup in Los Angeles' 17-7 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 1.
