Yates listed two Seahawks players as All-Pro's on his full list in linebacker Bobby Wagner and safety Earl Thomas. 

Wagner was paired alongside Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly across the middle:

Incredibly cerebral but physical, Wagner and Kuechly are -- in my mind -- the unquestioned top pair of inside linebackers in the NFL.

Thomas controls the back of Yates' secondary alongside Minnesota safety Harrison Smith:
