For the first time in his career, former Palisades High All-City lineman Mitchell Schwartz has been named to the NFL All-Pro first team by the Associated Press. He was a second teamer in 2016 and 2017.
Schwartz, a 6-foot-5, 320-lb. starting right tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs, was also selected as a first team All Pro selection by ProFootballFocus and Bleacher Report. The Chiefs are the top seed in the AFC playoffs and host the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round Saturday.
Schwartz has never missed a game (or a start) in his seven-year pro career and is a few snaps short of 7,400 consecutive plays in the regular season.
