Four 49ers named among CBS Sports’ top NFL players by jersey number

Aug 11, 2020 at 6:33 AM--


Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports this week listed, in his opinion, the best current NFL players for every jersey number. Four San Francisco 49ers appeared on the list. Eight teams were represented more, including the Baltimore Ravens, who led the list with nine players.

The 49ers players who are considered the best to don their jersey numbers entering the 2020 season are cornerback Richard Sherman (No. 25), linebacker Dre Greenlaw (57), tight end George Kittle (85), and defensive end Nick Bosa (97).

Nick Bosa beat out his brother, Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers, despite the former having played only one NFL season. He, as his brother did in 2016, was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

"Joey just got paid, and Joey's got more of a track record," explained Benjamin, "but you know what? Nick wasted absolutely zero time showing the NFL he's just as dominant off the edge."

There's really no argument for another player over Sherman or Kittle. Greenlaw's name for No. 57 might surprise some, though.

"This probably would've been C.J. Mosley, had the Jets LB not [opted] out," admits Benjamin.

Cornerback Marlon Humphrey of the Baltimore Ravens was named the best player in the NFL wearing No. 44. However, some thought went to placing the 49ers fullback there.

"Kyle Juszczyk makes some sense here, but Humphrey is a top-level corner on a contender at his best," wrote Benjamin.

Peter King names 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo among his Offensive Players of the Week

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had a pretty good bounce-back game against the Los Angeles Rams after an embarrassingly poor two quarters of play a week earlier. The 49ers passer finished the game 23-of-33 for 268 yards with three touchdowns. Each of those scores, by the way, was hauled in by three different players. In fact, Garoppolo did a good job of getting everyone involved in the passing game. Eight different players caught at least one pass, with All-Pro tight end George Kittle leading the way with seven receptions for 109 yards and a score. Garoppolo's performance was enough to impress Peter King of NBC Sports, who named the 49ers quarterback among his Offensive Players of the Week. "For a slumping and gimpy Garoppolo, Sunday

It sounds like help is on the way for the San Francisco 49ers cornerbacks. Emmanuel Moseley, who has missed the last two games due to a concussion, was back at practice on Wednesday, albeit in a blue no-contact jersey. Moseley was without the blue jersey on Thursday, which indicates that the starting cornerback has been cleared from the concussion protocol and could be set to play on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams. No more blue jersey for #49ers CB Emmanuel Moseley at today's practice. It appears he's cleared
