After a controversial Pro Bowl list, the NFL announced the All-Pro team for the 2018 season. 

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker made first-team All Pro for the first time since 2016. 2018 marks the third time Tucker has received first-team honors. On the season, he has connected on nearly 90% of his opportunities including a season-long 56 yarder. 

Two other Ravens made the All Pro team, with second-team honors.

Both linebacker CJ Mosley and Marshal Yanda saw the first-team honors go to two rookies from Indianapolis, in linebacker Darius Leonard and Quenton Nelson.

The selection for Mosley marked the third straight season receiving second-team All Pro and his fourth total. Mosley sealed the battle against Cleveland, with a key interception on the final drive of the game. The Ravens locked up the AFC North division with huge help from their star linebacker.

As for Yanda, he received second-team honors for the fourth time and first time since 2016. After a season-ending injury last year, Yanda has took back his rightful claim as one of the elite guards in the NFL. 

With three Ravens making the All-Pro team, it's no wonder that Baltimore hosts a playoff game this Sunday against the Chargers.
