The 2021 NFL AP All-Pro teams were announced on Friday and Los Angeles Rams players Cooper Kupp, Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey were all named to the First Team.
Kupp and Donald were two of five unanimous selections along with Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor, Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams and Pittsburgh Steelers edge rusher T.J. Watt.
This was a well-deserved honor for Kupp, who is named an All-Pro for the first time in his career. Kupp won the NFL receiving triple crown in 2021, finishing with 145 receptions for 1,947 yards and 16 touchdowns.
In eight NFL seasons, Donald has now been named a Pro Bowler eight times and an All-Pro seven times. He had another outstanding season in 2021, finishing with a career-high 84 total tackles to go along with 12.5 sacks, 19 tackles for loss, four forced fumbles and four passes defensed. Donald also led the league in pressure and double-team rates, which is an annual thing with him.

In Ramsey’s six-year NFL career, he has now been named a Pro Bowler five times and All-Pro three times, including both of his full seasons with the Ramsey.
In 2021, Ramsey played a new role called the “Star” position and put together perhaps his best NFL season. Ramsey finished with 77 total tackles, nine tackles for loss, four interceptions, a forced fumble and 16 passes defensed.
The Rams did not have any players named to the All-Pro second team, although kicker Matt Gay and punter Johnny Hekker each received one vote.
