With so many great running backs around the league, it’s never easy to break into one of the All-Pro teams, even for a player as talented as Aaron Jones.

Despite being a Pro Bowler last season, Jones missed out on both All-Pro teams with Tennessee’s Derrick Henry and New Orleans’ Alvin Kamara earning the most votes. The season prior, Jones led the NFL in rushing touchdowns but also missed out with Christian McCaffrey and Henry being selected.

However, Jones’ production has been up there with the top running backs in the league so there’s no reason why this can’t be the year he makes it to the All-Pro team.

Over the past two seasons working in Matt LaFleur’s system, Jones has had a featured role with 3,017 all-purpose yards and 30 touchdowns in the regular season. He’s added another 296 total yards and five touchdowns in four playoff games.

After signing a new four-year extension, Jones will again be the featured back in Green Bay’s offense. After rushing for over 1,000 yards in each of the past two seasons while scoring touchdowns for fun, Jones is set for another huge year.

Maybe it’ll be enough to be named an All-Pro for the first time in his career.
