There's no higher individual NFL honor than being named to an Associated Press first-team All-Pro squad. In the minds of the people whose job it is to watch football, each nominated player was the best in the world at his position.
Pro Bowl squads, while usually comprised of the NFL's top stars, are really more like popularity contests. Their rosters annually swell with "injury replacements," too, so reaching the status of "Pro Bowler" is relatively achievable for a quality starter with a respectable career.
Not so with All-Pros; they're picked by media only, and the honorees comprise a complete starting 22, plus specialists, period.
