2017 NFL All-Rookie Team Named by Pro Football Writers Association

The 2017 NFL regular season has been over for a few weeks now, but awards and honors are still slowly being released by various outlets (click here and here to see the selections for the Pro Bowl and All-Pro teams, respectively).

Until today, however, the rookies in football had not received recognition for their first-year performances. The Pro Football Writers Association has come through though, releasing their list earlier this afternoon. They’re the only media outlet that regularly puts out an all-rookie team at the end of each season.

Here it is:

QB: Deshaun Watson, Texans

RB: Kareem Hunt, Chiefs; Alvin Kamara, Saints

WR: Cooper Kupp, Rams; JuJu Smith-Schuster, Steelers

TE: Evan Engram, Giants

T: Garett Bolles, Broncos; Ryan Ramczyk, Saints

G: Dan Feeney, Chargers; Jermaine Eluemunor, Ravens; Ethan Pocic, Seahawks

C: Pat Elflein, Vikings

DL: Derek Barnett, Eagles; Myles Garrett, Browns; Carl Lawson, Bengals; Dalvin Tomlinson, Giants

LB: Jarrad Davis, Lions; Reuben Foster, 49ers; T.J. Watt, Steelers

CB: Marshon Lattimore, Saints; Tre’Davious White, Bills

S: Jamal Adams, Jets; Marcus Williams, Saints

K: Harrison Butker, Chiefs

P: Rigoberto Sanchez, Colts

KR: Ryan Switzer, Cowboys

PR: Jamal Agnew, Lions

ST: Budda Baker, Cardinals

Watson made the list despite being limited to the first seven games of the season due to injury. Kamara, Baker and Agnew all made the AP All-Pro team in addition to the All-Rookie team. The former two also were named to the Pro Bowl, along with Hunt and Lattimore.

Sanchez is the lone undrafted rookie to make the team.

Also of note is Williams being named to the team in the wake of his disastrous missed tackle that helped the Vikings beat the Saints in the playoffs just two days ago.

The Offensive and Defensive Rookies of the Year will be named at the NFL Honors awards show the day before Super Bowl LII.
