AP NFL All-Pro Team: Ex-UCLA Bruins RB Maurice Jones-Drew Named To First Team

Maurice Jones-Drew has been a steady force at running back in his six years in the NFL. For the first time, the former UCLA Bruins star has been honored with a selection to the 2011 Associated Press All-Pro first team.

Jones-Drew, who has spent his entire NFL career with the Jacksonville Jaguars, has really evolved in his six years in the NFL. In his earlier years he was an all-purpose threat, running, receiving, and even returning kicks, but the 5'8", 205-pound running back is now quite the workhorse.

Jones-Drew led the NFL in carries (343) and rushing yards (1,606) in 2011, and scored 11 touchdowns, the fifth time in his six-year career that he has scored double-digit touchdowns. Over the last three years, nobody in the NFL has more than the 954 carries by Jones-Drew and only Chris Johnson (4,417) has more rushing yards than Jones-Drew's 4,321 during that span.
