Raheem Mostert hopes to one day land on NFL Top 100 Players list

Jul 29, 2020 at 8:17 AM--

Raheem Mostert has some big aspirations. The biggest football-related one might be the San Francisco 49ers running back being motivated by Canton. He hopes to have a good enough career to one day find himself in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

If last season's Green Bay Packers defense were the voters, Mostert might be a shoo-in. The former undrafted player rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries against the Packers defense in the NFC Championship Game, helping to punch the 49ers' ticket to Super Bowl LIV.

"[The performance] really opened up my eyes," Mostert said in April. "[I said], 'Hey look, I did this. Why stop? Just keep going. Keep doing the right things, the necessary things in order to be great.' That's something I want to be, man. I want to be able to have a gold jacket, and the only way to do that is to be great."

NFL Network is counting down the NFL Top 100 Players of 2020. No, Mostert is not on the list — yet. He hopes to one day be, though. Cornerback Richard Sherman believes he can accomplish that.

Mostert congratulated Sherman on his No. 28 ranking on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2020.

The veteran corner responded with the following.

Mostert followed that up with this.

The 49ers on Monday finalized a new deal for Mostert, which could potentially double his salary for the upcoming season without severely impacting the team's salary cap. The move came after Mostert's agent requested a trade due to what he felt to be unproductive contract discussions.

The running back remains signed through the 2021 season.

Another 49ers running back, Jerick McKinnon, is motivated by the NFL Top 100 Players list. He is working his way back from an ACL injury suffered just before the 2018 season. Signed during that offseason, McKinnon has yet to take a regular-season snap with San Francisco.

Besides Sherman, three other players — linebacker Fred Warner, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and defensive end Nick Bosa — have landed on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2020. Tight end George Kittle's position within the top 10 will be revealed today.

Former NFL running back turned NFL Media analyst Maurice Jones-Drew ranked his top 15 running backs, as he will do each week. San Francisco 49ers back Raheem Mostert came in at No. 11 on the list after one week's worth of NFL games. Mostert earned his first career NFL start. That's right. In his sixth NFL season, Mostert finally made his first start on Sunday. Yes, he led the team in rushing last season but wasn't on the field with his teammates during the first offensive snap of any game. Mostert showed off his versatility on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, rushing for 56 yards on 15 attempts and hauling in four passes for 95 yards and

Raheem Mostert joined KNBR on Wednesday morning for a lengthy interview on the Murph & Mac show. The San Francisco 49ers running back knows that losing on Sunday to the Arizona Cardinals was a disappointment, but he and his teammates aren't dwelling on it. "For me, personally, I think that game just kind of woke the beast up a little bit as far as where we want to go," Mostert said. "We've just got to take care of business this weekend, and handle what we can control, and go out there and try to get another win."

49ers' Kyle Shanahan refers to artificial crowd noise as 'human torture,' Raheem Mostert calls it 'different'

The final episode of this season's "Brick by Brick" may have been one of the more entertaining I can remember during the Hard Knocks-style online series' run. Most fans probably enjoyed listening to (likely very edited) defensive line coach Kris Kocurek mic'd up. However, watching head coach Kyle Shanahan try to endure the artificial crowd noise being pumped into Levi's Stadium as his team practiced was riveting. Fans will not be allowed to attend Week 1's matchup between the 49ers and Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium. In lieu of real crowd noise, simulated noise will be pumped through the sound system. It may not necessarily be what fans hear on their televisions at home,
