The Cowboys' cornerback makes the first-team All-Pro
The Dallas Cowboys cornerback is a first-team All-Pro pick for the 2019 NFL season.
The Associated Press announced the annual all-star selections on Friday, and Diggs, a former standout, is the only player from an Alabama high school or college to play for the first team.
Diggs has led the NFL this season with 11 interceptions, making him the first player to reach that level since Everson Walls had 11 for the Cowboys in 1981.
Diggs is an All-Pro for the first time in his two NFL seasons, but it got one more vote than three-time All-Pro Jalen Ramsey of the Los Angeles Rams.
Two Alabama high schools and colleges earned second-team All-Pro recognition:
Daniel Carlson, the Raiders' kicker, was eight times selected to finish second behind Justin Tucker of the Baltimore Ravens. Tucker was 40.
Josh Harris (Auburn) of the Atlanta Falcons was voted second to Luke Rhodes of the Indianapolis Colts. Rhodes was voted 22.
The All-Pro team was selected by four other Alabama footballers.
Jonathan Allen of The Washington Football Team (Alabama) has received two votes as the defensive interior lineman.
Minkah Fitzpatrick of the Pittsburgh Steelers has received one vote in safety.
Ryan Kelly, the Colts' new quarterback, has received three votes in the center.
C.J. Mosley (Theodore, Alabama) of The New York Jets received one vote at the linebacker.
Davante Adams, the Packers defensive tackle Aaron Donald, and Cooper Kupp, the Packers running back for Jonathan Taylor, among those selected by all 50 teams.
