Stefon Diggs named first-team All-Pro in his first season with Buffalo Bills

Well-deserved honor for Buffalo’s star receiver.

Stefon Diggs rewrote the Buffalo Bills’ record books in his first season with his new team. On Friday The Associated Press recognized Diggs as a first-team All-Pro, for the first time in his career. This year was also the first Pro Bowl appearance for Diggs, playing in his sixth pro season.

Believe it or not, this is actually the first time a player on offense for the Buffalo Bills has been chosen as a first-team All-Pro since Thurman Thomas, Kent Hull, and Jim Kelly in 1991, a full 29 years ago. The Bills have had 11 instances of defensive All-Pros, and two selections by Brian Moorman, since that span.

Diggs led the NFL with 127 catches and 1,535 yards this season, both of which were Bills receiving records. He caught eight touchdowns. With Diggs in the picture, the Bills’ offense skyrocketed from 23rd in points scored to second.

Joining Diggs as first-team receivers were Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill. The full roster of selections can be viewed on the AP website.

In addition to Diggs on the first team, four Buffalo Bills were named second-team All-Pro. QB Josh Allen, WR Cole Beasley, CB Tre’Davious White, and KR Andre Roberts all made the cut in the second groups. (Note: Three wide receivers make the first team and three wide receivers make the second team while two cornerbacks make the first team and two make the second team.)

Seven additional Bills each received at least one vote: RT Daryl Williams (1), C Mitch Morse (1), S Jordan Poyer (3), P Corey Bojorquez (2), PR Andre Roberts (6), ST Andre Roberts (1), and ST Tyler Matakevich (1).
