For the first time since 2005, no 49ers selected to the Pro Bowl

Dec 20, 2016 at 5:10 PM--


The Pro Bowl rosters have been announced and for the first time since 2005, no players on the San Francisco 49ers were selected to the NFL's annual all-star game. OT Joe Staley, the team's best offensive player, had the best shot to make the Pro Bowl but was not voted in. You can view each of the Pro Bowl rosters here.

The 49ers were one of just six teams that do not have a representative in the Pro Bowl. The other five are the Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, New Orleans Saints, New York Jets, and Jacksonville Jaguars. The teams that do not have a representative in the Pro Bowl have a combined record of 25-59. The 49ers, at 1-13, possess the worst record between them. Even the winless Browns managed to get a player, OT Joe Thomas, selected.

The Oakland Raiders lead the AFC with seven representatives. The Atlanta Falcons, who dismantled the 49ers on Sunday to the score of 41-13, lead the NFC with six representatives.

However, it is possible that a 49ers player could still make the Pro Bowl, should a coach decide that an alternate from the team is needed. The Pro Bowl takes place January 29 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. This season's Pro Bowl will return to the traditional AFC vs. NFC game format after three years where team captains selected the rosters via a format similar to fantasy football.

With the 2021 NFL Draft officially over, the questions have moved on from who the 49ers are drafting to when these newly drafted rookies will see the field. Last weekend, the 49ers made the bold choice of QB Trey Lance with the No.3 overall pick in the draft. However, just because he was their first selection doesn't mean that he will be the one to see the most playing time out of all the 49ers' rookies. Sitting in front of him is incumbent starter, Jimmy Garoppolo, and the 49ers have made many reassuring remarks that he will remain their starting quarterback in 2021. With that in mind, let's rank the 49ers draftees based on projected playing

But he does have a personal preference for that pick, along with some thoughts on what factors the 49ers have been weighing throughout the decision-making process.

Warner took several minutes to discuss what could happen at pick three, saying he believes the 49ers' decision could come down to what direction they'd like to take from current starter Jimmy Garoppolo.

49ers fans won't find out for sure who their team will be taking at pick three in the 2021 NFL Draft until just after the first round begins on 5 p.m. PT on Thursday. Regardless, NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport believes there is currently a frontrunner for the distinction and that many around the league would be surprised if that frontrunner doesn't turn out to be former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones. Rapoport spoke recently about what he's hearing regarding pick three with 49ers senior reporter Keiana Martin. Among the tidbits he shared was his belief that a frontrunner exists and that the team would like to make sure everyone in the building is happy with the pick before making the final call. "My understanding was there was a leader in the clubhouse and this
