AP rankings: Unanimous pick Aaron Donald is NFL's top DT

Los Angeles Rams star Aaron Donald has been unanimously selected as the NFL's No. 1 defensive tackle by an Associated Press panel of voters.

The voting released Friday was done by Hall of Fame receiver James Lofton and 10 AP football writers.

Donald's consistent disruption and production since being drafted in the first round out of Pittsburgh earned him the only unanimous selection of the 10 positions ranked thus far by the 11-person AP panel in the weekly installments published this season.

The two-time All-Pro pick has 32 sacks in 55 career games.

Donald was one of six defensive tackles listed on every ballot. The other five were Miami's Ndamukong Suh, who finished second; Philadelphia's Fletcher Cox, who was third; Cincinnati's Geno Atkins, who came in fourth; fifth-place finisher Damon Harrison of the New York Giants; and Carolina's Kawann Short, who was eighth.
