49ers’ Nick Bosa, Richard Sherman, and George Kittle make NFL.com Midseason All-Pro Team

Nov 7, 2019 at 2:40 PM--

Each NFL team has played at least half of its regular-season games, so it was time for NFL.com writer Chris Wesseling to reveal his 2019 Midseason All-Pro Team.

The San Francisco 49ers are the league's last undefeated team and are well-represented on the All-Pro squad. Three Niners, rookie defensive end Nick Bosa, veteran cornerback Richard Sherman, and tight end George Kittle, made the All-Pro team.

Wesseling wrote the following about Bosa's selection:

"A 49ers defensive line that was littered with first-round disappointments has been transformed into the most punishing unit in the league, with a rookie leading the way. Bosa has wrecked opposing offenses to such an extent that many are wondering whether a rookie has ever captured Defensive Player of the Year honors. The answer is yes. Lawrence Taylor emerged on the scene in 1981 with a debut so dominant that he was not only honored as the league's best defender but also inspired the sack as an official statistic in 1982."

Wesseling wrote the following about Sherman:

"A superstar and team leader for the league's only undefeated outfit, Sherman is stiff-arming all of the second-guessers who laughed at the contract he negotiated for himself in San Francisco."

Kittle beat out Darren Waller of the Oakland Raiders and Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs. Wesseling didn't let fantasy football statistics influence his decision at tight end, selecting who he feels is the more complete player.

Wesseling wrote the following about Kittle:

"Turn to the 49ers on NFL Game Pass and you will see a tight end who is often the most outstanding player on a field that contains Nick Bosa, Richard Sherman, Arik Armstead and superstars on the opposing sideline. The drop-proof Kittle isn't just the most dangerous run-after-catch threat at his position, he's also the most punishing blocker. A superlative athlete and a complete player, Kittle is exactly what an All-Pro looks like."

ESPN's Jeff Darlington recently appeared on the network's NFL Live show and discussed the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback situation, highlighting Trey Lance's healthy state and current workload during organized team activities (OTAs). "Trey Lance is the guy during OTAs who's been taking all the 1st-team reps; he's healthy at this point," Darlington said, per Dov Kleiman of BroBible. "Sam Darnold really getting backup duty as he kinda gets his playbook under his belt. But for now, Trey Lance getting his opportunity with those first-team reps." What is the takeaway from these comments? Nothing, really. We

A somewhat bigger-than-necessary deal was made last week when reporters saw San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance taking the first-team reps in the first practice of organized team activities (OTAs) open to reporters. After the practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked what, if anything, could be concluded from that. "It'll even out," Shanahan assured reporters. "We'll make sure to get that right." The coach made a point to add, "And the first-team is kind of funny because there's no [offensive] line out there. Most of our receivers are second- and third-team on the first-team today, so I'm curious what everyone thinks first- and second- and third-team is." The 49ers also made Wednesday's practice open to reporters as the team
