2013 All Pro team: Four Panthers recognized

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Four members of the Carolina Panthers have been named to the NFL All Pro Team.

There have been plenty of accolades this season for the Carolina Panthers, and on Friday four members of the team were awarded the league's highest honor -- All Pro status.

Fullback Mike Tolbert was named to his first All Pro team after rushing for 361 yards and five touchdowns, while serving as the team's lead blocker in an offense that ranked near the top of the league in running yards. He's joined on offense by Ryan Kalil, who made his second All Pro team after last being named in 2011.

Greg Hardy notierity grew leaps and bounds in 2013, capped off with a career-first All Pro berth. He was named to the defensive second team, squeezed out of a starting job by Robert Quinn of the St. Louis Rams and J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans. It's no knock on Hardy to not make the first team, it was an astounding year for defensive ends.

Rounding out the group of four is the every-reliable Luke Kuechly -- named to his first All Pro team as a starter. The accolades are piling up for the Panthers middle linebacker, who won every defensive rookie of the year award in 2012, was named to the Pro Bowl in 2013, and now the All Pro team. There is plenty of buzz surrounding Kuechly for defensive player of the year, and it will be interesting to see how his status will be changed by the announcement.
