49ers' Fred Warner the only non-DB named to Next Gen Stats' top 10 coverage players

Fred Warner is a pretty good defensive back ... er ... linebacker. Wait a minute... Nick Shook of NFL Media published a ranking of the top 10 coverage players in the NFL from 2020, and one player seems to be out of place. Warner of the San Francisco 49ers is a linebacker.

DeMeco Ryans seems to be fitting in perfectly so far as the 49ers' new defensive coordinator, although that should come as no surprise given his previous NFL experience. Ryans, 36, played ten seasons in the league as a linebacker for the Houston Texans (2006-2011) and Philadelphia Eagles (2012-2015) after being selected by the Texans at pick 33 in Round 2 of the 2006 NFL Draft. After a career that saw him total 814 tackles, 13.5 sacks, and two Pro Bowl selections, Ryans began his coaching career as a quality control coach with the 49ers in 2017 and has since gone through a quick rise to defensive coordinator after serving as the inside linebackers coach the past three seasons.

"First, I calculated and then ranked each player's season-long contribution metric by team," explained Frelund. "To sum it up without getting overly technical, contribution metric measures each player's production during the 2020 season. The metric encompasses a value for every snap by each player and reveals each player's contribution to the team's overall win total." Player salary and other metrics factored into each choice.
