FOXBORO (WGGB) — The New England Patriots were without a first-team All-Pro selection in 2013, but saw three stars named a second-team All-Pro roster by the Associated Press Friday.

Offensive guard Logan Mankins was named a second-team All-Pro guard in 2013, and Aqib Talib and Devin McCourty were named second-team All-Pro cornerback and safety, respectively.

The All-Pro team is selected by a panel of 50 media members. It is the 5th time Mankins has been named to the All-Pro team, while McCourty got his second selection, but his previous selection came as a cornerback.

The Patriots went without a skill-position player being selected to the team. Denver Bronco Peyton Manning was a unanimous selection at the quarterback position, leaving no room for Tom Brady or New Orleans Saint Drew Brees as a potential second-team selection.

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham and Colts linebacker Robert Mathis were nearly unanimous selections, as they both received 49 of 50 votes.

The Broncos had 4 offensive selections. The Cleveland Browns surprised with 5 All-Pro selections.
