Antonio Brown named to PFF All Pro first team

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was named to Pro Football Focus's All Pro first team.

Look for expansion of the wide receiver position on postseason all-star teams and awards presentations.

This season is an outstanding example of how important the position has become, and how many current receivers are simply well beyond what has been historically normal.

Pro Football Focus, a football plays and evaluation web site, announced its 2013 All Pro Team recently, naming Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown to one of two first-team wide receiver spots. The other, Chicago's Brandon Marshall, had 1,295 yards and 12 touchdowns, and was the best blocking wide receiver, according to their measurements in the NFL.

Both are valid and deserving All Pro-level players. But leaving them on leaves off Calvin Johnson, DeMaryius Thomas, Josh Gordon and A.J. Green, just to name a few.

Brown was a second-team All Pro selection by the Associated Press this season, after breaking the Steelers' single-season receiving yards record with 1,499. He had 110 catches (second-highest in team history) and nine total touchdowns on the year.
