Record-setting Detroit Lions star Calvin Johnson was named to the AP All-Pro First Team on Saturday, joining Chicago’s Brandon Marshall at the wide receiver position. Johnson was the lone Lions player to make the 27-man first-team roster, though DT Ndamukong Suh earned a second-team nod. Johnson, despite breaking Jerry Rice’s single-season receiving yardage record, fell one vote shy of a unanimous All-Pro selection — he received 49 of 50 votes. Suh, meanwhile, received five votes, to tie him with Baltimore’s Haloti Ngata. San Francisco’s Justin Smith (17 votes) also landed on the second team at defensive tackle. The full first-team roster: QB: Peyton Manning RB: Adrian Peterson RB: Marshawn Lynch WR: Calvin Johnson WR: Brandon Marshall TE: Tony Gonzalez OT: Duane Brown OT: Ryan Clady G: Mike Iupati G: Jahri Evans C: Max Unger K: Blair Walsh KR: Jacoby Jones DE: J.J. Watt DE: Cameron Wake DT: Geno Atkins DT: Vince Wilfork OLB: Von Miller OLB: Aldon Smith ILB: Patrick Willis ILB: NaVorro Bowman CB: Richard Sherman CB: Charles Tillman S: Earl Thomas S: Dashon Goldson P: Andy Lee
