It is interesting to note that only three of the nine 49ers players ranked higher among fan voting than the player voting. Those players were Vernon Davis, Colin Kaepernick and Anquan Boldin. Wide receiver Michael Crabtree came in at #67 among fans, but failed to make it into the top 100 among players.
