Chargers’ Derius Davis named inaugural NFLPA first-team All-Pro

The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) announced its second-ever Players’ All-Pro team on Wednesday, with those who made it selected strictly by NFL players themselves.

Players voted for those with the most impact during the season at their respective positions and those they lined up against.

Rookie Derius Davis was selected as a first-team Players’ All-Pro and deemed the best punt returner in the NFL.

Drafted in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL draft, Davis finished his sensational rookie season with 24 returned punts for 385 total yards, second-most in the NFL.

Davis’ punt return average of 16.0 ranked first in the league, and he was one of eight players to return a punt for a touchdown, which came in Week 9 against the Jets on Monday Night Football.
