As the 2014 NFL season winds down, Pro Football Focus has put out their All-Pro team. Making the second-team offense was Bengals tackle Andrew Whitworth following another standout season.

Playing the all-important left tackle spot, Whitworth was one of the best in the game while allowing just one QB hit, eight hurries and no sacks. A blindside tackle allowing no sacks is very a rare feat, and it further shows why he's one of the best lineman in the game.

Whitworth even beat Browns left tackle Joe Thomas out just to get on the second team. Thomas has long been regarded as the best tackle in the game, but Whitworth edged him out to make the All-Pro team this year.

At guard, Kevin Zeitler was an honorable mention after a career year saw him end with a cumulative 17.2 grade. That was the ninth-highest mark of 78 qualified lineman via PFF's rankings. For comparison, Steelers guard David DeCastro, who was regarded as a better prospect coming into the 2012 draft, received a 5.2 grade.

Finally, Adam Jones was named to PFF's primary kick returner after averaging a ridiculous 31.3 yards per return.
