The 2009 All-Pro Team consists of National Football League (NFL) players named to the Associated Press (AP), Pro Football Writers Association (PFWA), and Sporting News All-Pro teams in the 2009 NFL season. The Associated Press and Sporting News named first and second-team selections. The AP team was selected by a national panel of 50 NFL writers. The Sporting News selection process consisted of a players' poll, making it "The Players' All-Pro Team".[1] The PFWA All-NFL team is based on a poll of its more than 300 members.

a Only the AP designates fullbacks.
b The Sporting News groups all linebackers together and names three total, the PFWA names two outside and one inside (middle) linebacker (as in a 4-3 defense), while the AP designates two outside and two inside linebackers.
c Cushing was originally named as a second-team outside linebacker by the AP along with Lamar Woodley. When it was disclosed several months after the voting was completed that he had failed a drug test administered during the season the AP decided to re-open voting at the position. Cushing was named on only one ballot in the re-vote, down from 5 votes he originally received.[2] James Harrison and Lance Briggs replaced Cushing.[3]
d The AP does not designate a punt returner.
e Only PFWA designates a special teams player.
