The Associated Press has made its annual All-Pro selections and the Kansas City Chiefs have a total of five players between the first and second teams. Three Chiefs players were named First-Team All-Pro, including one player among just two who were voted in unanimously. Two Chiefs players were named Second-Team All-Pro, one on defense and one on offense.

Below is a quick recap of the players selected as All-Pro’s and the types of seasons that they had.

First-Team All-Pro: TE Travis Kelce

Travis Kelce along with Rams DT Aaron Donald were the only two players to receive unanimous votes for this year's All-Pro selections. Kelce, of course, had an incredible record-setting campaign. He set the NFL's single-season receiving yards record by a tight end without playing a snap in Week 16. He finished the year with 105 catches for 1,416 yards and 11 touchdowns. This is Kelce's third First-Team All-Pro selection and his first since 2018. It marks his fifth season in total selected to either the first or second team.

First-Team All-Pro: WR Tyreek Hill

Hill remains one of the most explosive offensive weapons in the NFL this season. He tied the Chiefs' franchise record for receiving touchdowns, finishing the year with 87 receptions for 1,276 yards and 15 touchdowns. He added 13 carries for 123 yards and two touchdowns, showing his versatility within the Kansas City offense. This is Hill's third First-Team All-Pro selection of his career and his second as a wide receiver. His first came in 2016 as a punt returner.

First-Team All-Pro: DB Tyrann Mathieu

The undisputed leader of the Chiefs' defense, Mathieu adds an accolade to a tremendous second season in Kansas City. Mathieu finished third in the NFL among defenders this season with six interceptions on the year, including one returned for a touchdown against the New England Patriots in Week 4. He also finished the year with 62 total tackles, three tackles for loss, two QB hits and a fumble recovery. This is Mathieu's third selection as First-Team All-Pro in his career and the second consecutive season to receive the honor with the Chiefs. He earned his first All-Pro selection back in 2015 with the Arizona Cardinals.

Second-Team All-Pro: QB Patrick Mahomes

Last season, Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was snubbed entirely from the All-Pro list and went on to win the Super Bowl. This year, he's tied with Bills QB Josh Allen with a split number of votes for Second-Team All-Pro honors. In 15 games played, Mahomes amassed 390 completions for 4,740 yards with 38 touchdowns and just six interceptions. He was just 260 yards shy of a second 5,000-yard passing season and had he played in the final week, he probably would have exceeded 5,000 yards. This is Mahomes' first time receiving Second-Team All-Pro honors. It's his second total All-Pro selection as he received First-Team All-Pro honors back in his first year as a starter in 2018.

Second-Team All-Pro: DT Chris Jones

Chiefs DT Chris Jones was the second defender in Kansas City selected as an All-Pro this season. He finished the year with 36 total tackles, 7.5 sacks, three tackles for loss, 28 QB hits, four passes batted and two fumbles forced. He joins Steelers DT Cam Heyward as Second-Team All-Pro selections, with Aaron Donald and DeForest Buckner earning the First-Team nod. This is Jones' second time being selected to Second-Team All-Pro during his career, with the first coming back in 2018 when he finished third in the NFL with 15.5 sacks. Jones has never received First-Team All-Pro honors in his career.
