The 2014 NFL AP All-Pro votes have been announced, and both Gerald McCoy and Lavonte David were snubbed by the AP voters.

Gerald McCoy received 13 votes for a first-team All-Pro listing, behind Ndamukong Suh and Marcell Dareus -- making him an unofficial second-team selection instead. That's somewhat defensible, but McCoy still had an excellent season with 8.5 sacks despite missing three games with minor injuries and playing much of the season with a broken hand.

Lavonte David, though, received only two votes at outside linebacker. That places him behind seven other players, including Connor Barwin, Deandre Levy and Ryan Kerrigan. While David didn't put up the gaudy numbers he did the past two years, that was mostly due to a change in scheme -- he was as crucial as ever, and played as well as he has ever played.

Lavonte David continues to be the best 4-3 outside linebacker in the NFL, and mostly the structure of the voting that lumps him together with pass rushers prevents him from being recognized as such. David was similarly snubbed by the Pro Bowl voters this year, although McCoy did make it into that event.
