Michael Thomas and Cameron Heyward are first-team All-Pros.

The pair of former Ohio State players are honored as some of the league's best with both making the second All-Pro team of their careers.

Thomas was one of just two unanimous selections – joining New England cornerback Stephon Gilmore – after he hauled in an NFL-record 149 catches for 1,725 yards along with nine touchdowns. Thomas also had the highest catch rate in the league among wide receivers at 80.5%. This is Thomas' second-straight first-team All-Pro selection.

Heyward makes his second appearance on the All-Pro team after he was named a first-team All-Pro in 2017. Heyward was one of the best interior pass rushers in the league this season, finishing with 83 total tackles, 11 tackles for loss and 22 quarterback hits, which was second among Steelers' players behind edge rusher and fellow All-Pro T.J. Watt.

Thomas will now try to maintain his record pace as his Saints take on the Minnesota Vikings in the wild card round of the NFL Playoffs, while Heyward's Steelers were eliminated in the regular season.
