Receiver Justin Jefferson checked one more box on his already impressive résumé with his initial first-team All-Pro selection — unanimously as one of two players to get all 50 votes from a national panel of media members.

Jefferson was one of two Vikings players, along with long snapper and fellow first-time honoree Andrew DePaola, to be included in the Associated Press' All-Pro team announced Friday. The 35-year-old DePaola, who also made his first Pro Bowl this season, received 26 first-place votes.

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was the only other unanimous first-team All-Pro selection. Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson — the 2018 Vikings draft pick cut after two games — was also named a first-team All-Pro pick.

Jefferson, who led the league with a career-high and franchise-record 128 catches and 1,809 receiving yards, made the All-Pro second team in his first two years. He missed last year's top team by one vote to 49ers star Deebo Samuel. This year, Jefferson joins the Dolphins' Tyreek Hill and Raiders' Davante Adams on the first team.

"It'll mean a lot just to be recognized as one of the top in the league," Jefferson said earlier this week. "The first two years I got second team, so it'll definitely mean something to me to get first this time."

Vikings safety Harrison Smith and special teamer Josh Metellus received one first-team vote apiece. They each also had second-team votes. Other Vikings receiving second-team votes: kick returner Kene Nwangwu (27), cornerback Patrick Peterson (10), tight end T.J. Hockenson (seven), left tackle Christian Darrisaw (three), right tackle Brian O'Neill (one) and safety Camryn Bynum (one).

Edge rusher Za'Darius Smith had a productive season, ranking fourth in quarterback pressures along with 10 sacks, but did not receive a single vote.
