Right Guard Marshal Yanda Named First-Team All-Pro


Marshal Yanda continues to pile up the accolades.

The veteran right guard has been named first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press for the second year in a row. He was a second-team All-Pro selection in 2011 and 2012.

The All-Pro honors are determined by a panel of 50 voting media members. The distinction is considered a higher overall honor than making the Pro Bowl because only one player at each position is selected to the All-Pro team.

Yanda, 31, has clearly established himself as one of the best offensive linemen in the NFL. He has also earned five straight Pro Bowl selections and was also named the team's Most Valuable Player for the 2015 season.

"We all want to be great at our jobs, and it's great to be recognized," Yanda said after winning the MVP award last month. "Obviously you understand that you don't get there alone. Obviously football is the ultimate team sport, and I just feel like it's all of us together as a group out there wanting to be great."

In addition to getting the recognition around the league for his performance the last few years, he has also put himself into a rare class in Ravens franchise history. Yanda now joins outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil and wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. as the only two players on the roster to earn multiple first-team All-Pro selections.
