Lavonte David may not be able to get the nod as a Pro Bowler, but he’s getting some love on the All-NFC team at the very least. As for Martin, his stellar turnaround season was good enough for him to be voted onto the main All-NFL team.
David was No. 3 in the NFL in combined tackles, while also totalling 13 passes defensed, three interceptions, three sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. As for Martin, his 1,402 yards were the second-most in the NFL behind only Adrian Peterson, and he also rushed for six scores while averaging 4.9 yards per carry.
