Packers WR Davante Adams just two votes from being named All-Pro
This year’s All-Pro voting for the 2018 NFL season came with its fair share of snubs. Among the more notable was that of Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams.
Adams was undoubtedly one of the best wideouts in the league this season. Unfortunately, he fell just two votes behind Kansas City wide receiver Tyreek Hill for All0Pro honors,via the Associated Press:
DeAndre Hopkins, Houston, 46; Michael Thomas, New Orleans, 21; Julio Jones, Atlanta, 17; Tyreek Hill, Kansas City, 6; Davante Adams, Green Bay, 4; Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh, 2; Adam Thielen, Minnesota, 2; Mike Evans, Tampa Bay, 1; JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh, 1
It is easy to see why Adams may have felt snubbed. He enjoyed one of the greatest individual seasons in franchise history. He finished the 2018 campaign with 111 receptions for 1,386 yards and 13 touchdowns. He was on the verge of ending things on a high note before being forced out of the season finale due to a knee injury. Perhaps even more impressive is that he managed to play at such a high level despite Green Bay’s struggles on offense.
Unfortunately, it is clear that the voters were quite fond of what Hill accomplished this season. Aside from being a second-team selection at receiver, he was also named to the first-team as a flex. There is no question that he is well-deserving of the latter due to his ability to impact the game as both a runner and returner as well, however, it is difficult to argue that he was a better receiver than Adams after finishing with 87 receptions for 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns. regardless, this should provide the young Packers’ star with some added motivation for next season.
