The Broncos sent out a few quotes from coach Josh McDaniels regarding the team’s three AP All-Pro selections, outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (first team), offensive tackle Ryan Clady (first team) and safety Brian Dawkins (second team):
“It’s always nice to see your players receive national recognition for their play,” McDaniels said. “Ryan, Elvis and Brian are a big part of our football team and certainly proved this past season that they are among the league’s best at their respective positions. I’m happy for them.
“Defensively, few players in the NFL made as much of an impact as Elvis did, and Brian brought such an attitude to our locker room while continuing to play at the highest level. For Ryan to be named a first-team All-Pro at such a young age is a rare thing for a tackle and speaks volumes for his play.”
