Wilfork, McCourty, Vollmer named to second-team

The Patriots had three players -- Tom Brady, Logan Mankins and Jerod Mayo -- named first-team All-Pros on Monday. They had three others named second-teamers.

Defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, rookie cornerback Devin McCourty and offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer were named second-team All-Pros.

Wilfork was a force all over the defensive line this year for the Patriots. CSNNE.com Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran voted Wilfork as a first-teamer.

In his first season, McCourty started every game, had 69 tackles and intercepted seven passes. He was also named to the Pro-Bowl as a reserve.

Vollmer, a second-year pro, was solid at right tackle across from left tackle Matt Light. With Light up for free-agency, there has been talk that Vollmer could take over at left tackle to protect Brady's blind side some time in the near future.
