1st Team Selections

QB Peyton Manning, 7-time 1st team All-Pro (03, 04, 05, 08, 09, 12, 13)

Peyton Manning had the greatest single season performance out of any QB in the modern era.  He set NFL records for TD passes in a game (55) and most yards in a season (4,744).  He led his team to the playoffs for the 13th time, an NFL record.

The NFL is no country for old men, but this vet just about lapped the field in 2013.

G Louis Vasquez, 1st time, 1st team All-Pro

Louis may prove to be the best of John Elway's offseason acquisitions.  He is the only Bronco to play every snap for his unit, and is the 3rd highest rated G according to PFF.

He is the only Broncos lineman to not allow a sack.

WR Demaryius Thomas, 1st time, 2nd team All-Pro

Demaryius recorded the best back to back receiving seasons in the history of the Denver Broncos.  No other Broncos receiver past or present has ever put up 1,400+ yards in consecutive seasons.  Demaryius provided a threat capable of creating mismatches at any level of the football field.

His 14 touchdown receptions also tie a Broncos team record set by Anthony Miller

P Matt Prater, 1st time, 2nd team All-Pro

Everyone knows that Matt Prater broke the NFL record for longest field goal with his 64 yarder against Tennessee.  Not all realize that after being criticized for his accuracy and struggles from 40-49 yards, he hit 8/8 this season.  He even set the Broncos franchise mark for field goal percentage at 96.2%.  As if that weren't enough, he also set an NFL record for most PAT's made in a season with 75 and set the Broncos franchise record for most points in a season with 150.

A big Mile High salute to our NFL four-horsemen!
