The Associated Press today announced the roster for the 2014 All-Pro Team, and four Cowboys were selected as first-team All Pros:

Dallas led all teams with four All-Pros, including guard Zach Martin, the only rookie on the squad. League rushing leader DeMarco Murray, tackle Tyron Smith and wide receiver Dez Bryant also made it.

Making the All Pro team is a first for all four players. All four had previously made the Pro Bowl for 2014 (along with Tony Romo and Travis Frederick), though making the All Pro team is a much bigger accomplishment, especially for rookie Zack Martin.

J.J. Watt and Rob Gronkowski were the only unanimous picks, showing up on all 50 ballots. Here's how the many votes the Cowboys got:

  • DeMarco Murray (48)
  • Tyron Smith (35)
  • Dez Bryant (24)
  • Zach Martin (24)
  • Travis Frederick (14)
  • Tony Romo (3)
  • Dan Bailey (1)

Frederick and Romo are runner ups at their position, meaning they'll be honored as second-team All Pros, though this vote probably ends all discussion for Romo in the MVP race, as Aaron Rodgers beat out Tony Romo 44-3 in the All Pro ballot. Tom Brady (2) and Andrew Luck (1) complete the QB ballots.
