Dak Prescott is now QB1: One of the MVP favorites, the Cowboys' starting quarterback has been on fire recently.

Tyreek Hill remains on a record-setting pace: Hill is on track to set an NFL record for most receiving yards in a season, and he may even have a legitimate MVP case.

We’re in the final stretch of the 2023 NFL season, and there are still plenty of close All-Pro, divisional and playoff races around the league.

PFF's third-quarter All-Pro team is headlined by a second-half riser at quarterback and a wide receiver on a record-setting pace.


QB: Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys

Second team: Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

Since Week 6, Prescott has earned four 90.0-plus PFF game grades, never falling below 70.0 in that span. On a tremendous run of form, he now leads the league with 29 big-time throws. His 1.4% turnover-worthy play rate is the lowest among all quarterbacks with at least 200 dropbacks this season.

RB: Christian McCaffrey, San Francisco 49ers

Second team: Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans

McCaffrey leads the league in rushing by almost 200 yards through 13 weeks, with his 48 forced missed tackles are the most at the position. His 3.3 yards after contact per carry mark ranks fifth among players with at least 100 carries, and he places third in the league across all positions with a 91.2 PFF receiving grade.

WR: Tyreek Hill, Miami Dolphins

Second team: CeeDee Lamb, Dallas Cowboys

Hill remains on pace to go over 2,000 receiving yards this season and continues to be a force all over the field. His 4.27 yards per route run average would not just be a PFF record but also over a full yard more than the next-best receiver. He also leads the league with 22 missed tackles forced after the catch.

WR: A.J. Brown, Philadelphia Eagles

Second team: Keenan Allen, Los Angeles Chargers

Brown is on pace for a career year in his second season with the Philadelphia Eagles. He ranks fifth with 17 missed tackles after the catch forced and is tied for third with 12 contested catches through 13 weeks.

TE: George Kittle, San Francisco 49ers

Second team: Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs

Kittle ranks third in receiving yards among tight ends but has seen significantly fewer targets than Travis Kelce and Sam LaPorta — the only two at the position who are ahead of him. His 2.21 yards per route run average trails just Kelce. Kittle has separated himself from the other top receiving tight ends through his run-blocking prowess. His 79.8 PFF run-blocking grade trails only Josh Oliver of the Minnesota Vikings through 13 weeks.

Flex O: WR Brandon Aiyuk, San Francisco 49ers

Second team: WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Detroit Lions

Trailing only Tyreek Hill in yards per route run average, Aiyuk has elevated himself to the ranks of the top receivers in football with an impressive 2023 season. He ranks second behind Hill at the position with a 91.8 PFF receiving grade and has dropped just 3.8% of the catchable passes thrown his way.

LT: Tyron Smith, Dallas Cowboys

Second team: Christian Darrisaw, Minnesota Vikings

Smith has allowed just nine pressures from 364 pass-blocking snaps this season, and none were sacks or hits. He hasn’t been quite as dominant as a run blocker, but his 75.5 PFF run-blocking grade still ranks 13th among offensive tackles.

LG: Tyler Smith, Dallas Cowboys

Second team: Joe Thuney, Kansas City Chiefs

Partnering with his Cowboys teammate to lock out the left side of our All-Pro offensive line, Smith has been one of the best run blockers in football this season. His 90.4 PFF grade trails only Chris Lindstrom among guards.

C: Connor Williams, Miami Dolphins

Second team: Frank Ragnow, Detroit Lions

At least eight players are still battling it out to be the best center in football in 2023. Williams has allowed just six pressures from 276 pass-blocking snaps, while his 90.3 PFF run-blocking grade ranks second at the position.

RG: Chris Lindstrom, Atlanta Falcons

Second team: Kevin Dotson, Los Angeles Rams

Lindstrom has maintained his dominance as a run blocker for the third year in a row, with his 90.6 PFF run-blocking grade the best among guards. He has been solid as a pass blocker, too, allowing just 12 total pressures from 453 pass-blocking snaps.

RT: Penei Sewell, Detroit Lions

Second team: Lane Johnson, Philadelphia Eagles

The seventh overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft, Sewell continues to get better. He’s on track for a career-high PFF pass-blocking grade after allowing just 12 total pressures from 481 pass-blocking snaps, and his 91.4 PFF run-blocking grade leads all offensive linemen.


DI: Dexter Lawrence, New York Giants

Second team: Jalen Carter, Philadelphia Eagles

Lawrence has followed up his monster 2022 campaign with an even better season to date in 2023. He has racked up 53 total pressures, including five sacks and 11 quarterback hits, from 333 pass-rushing snaps, and his 32 tackles resulting in a defensive stop are the third most among interior defenders.

DI: Quinnen Williams, New York Jets

Second team: Aaron Donald, Los Angeles Rams

Like Dexter Lawrence, Williams is on track for a career-high PFF grade in 2023. His 90.7 PFF run-defense grade leads the position, and he has racked up 42 total pressures, including two sacks and nine quarterback hits, from 342 pass-rushing snaps.

EDGE: Nick Bosa, San Francisco 49ers

Second team: Myles Garrett, Cleveland Browns

Bosa was one of the most productive pass-rushers in football over the first half of the season, but the sack numbers weren’t there, so many people didn’t think he deserved a spot on our midseason All-Pro team. Since then, he has been just as productive when it comes to pressures generated, now ranking second in the NFL with 74, and his sack numbers have positively regressed.

EDGE: Micah Parsons, Dallas Cowboys

Second team: Maxx Crosby, Las Vegas Raiders

Parsons leads the NFL with 78 quarterback pressures from 385 pass-rushing snaps, including 13 sacks and 14 hits. While his teammate DaRon Bland has set the record for most interceptions returned for touchdowns in a single season, it’s Parsons who is the current front-runner for Defensive Player of the Year.

LB: Fred Warner, San Francisco 49ers

Second team: Blake Cashman, Houston Texans

Warner’s 91.6 PFF run-defense grade ranks second among linebackers through 13 weeks, and he places fourth with an 85.8 PFF coverage grade. His three interceptions are tied for the most at the position, and he’s been a successful blitzer, too, notching 12 pressures on 43 pass-rushing snaps.

LB: Roquan Smith, Baltimore Ravens

Second team: Jahlani Tavai, New England Patriots

Smith paces the linebacker position with a 90.1 PFF coverage grade this season. He has allowed just one touchdown in coverage, and his six pass breakups rank second at the position. On track for a career-best 4.4% missed tackle rate, Smith has missed just six tackles all season.

CB: DaRon Bland, Dallas Cowboys

Second team: Paulson Adebo, New Orleans Saints

Bland’s record-breaking pick-six total garners most of the attention, but he would be having an impressive season even without those defensive scores. He is tied for 19th with six pass breakups and leads the league with eight interceptions.

CB: Jaylon Johnson, Chicago Bears

Second team: Sauce Gardner, New York Jets

Johnson, one of the top pending free agents, leads all cornerbacks with a 90.3 PFF coverage grade. From 383 coverage snaps, he has allowed just 20 receptions for 162 yards on 40 targets, adding a combined eight interceptions and pass breakups.

S: Jevon Holland, Miami Dolphins

Second team: Jessie Bates III, Atlanta Falcons

Holland’s 90.7 PFF coverage grade leads all safeties, as he has allowed just 19 receptions as a primary coverage defender across 396 reps. He has also been a sound tackler, missing just 6.9% of his attempts this season.

S: Antoine Winfield Jr., Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Second team: Jabrill Peppers, New England Patriots

Winfield’s 91.6 PFF run-defense grade trails only Peppers at the position, while he ranks fifth with an 85.4 PFF coverage grade. He has missed just 8.7% of his tackle attempts and has racked up 13 quarterback pressures from 32 pass-rushing snaps.

Flex D: S Kyle Hamilton, Baltimore Ravens

Second team: CB Rasul Douglas, Buffalo Bills

The perfect player for the flex designation on this team, Hamilton has been a real defensive weapon for the Ravens this season. He excels close to the line of scrimmage, leading all safeties in PFF coverage grade when lined up in the box or slot (83.0).
