Fred Warner voted the 2020 49ers Webzone MVP by fans

Jan 9, 2021 at 12:04 PM--


Every year, we poll 49ers Webzone fans to determine the San Francisco 49ers' most valuable player in the eyes of The Faithful.

Our fans have been choosing an MVP on an annual basis since after the 1998 season when quarterback Steve Young became the first player to win the honor. Since then, just four linebackers have won. They are Julian Peterson (2003), Patrick Willis (2007, 2010), NaVorro Bowman (2015), and now Fred Warner, who is the latest winner.

Warner ran away with the fan voting, garnering 78.6 percent of the votes. The next-closest player was rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, who earned 6.4 percent of the votes.


This obviously isn't the only accolade resulting from Warner's impressive 2020 campaign. He earned his first All-Pro and Pro Bowl selections and won the prestigious team-issued Len Eshmont and Bill Walsh awards.

The 49ers made Warner a third-round selection out of BYU in 2018. He finished this past season with a team-leading 125 tackles, five tackles for a loss, a sack, six passes defensed, two interceptions, and a forced fumble through 16 games, per Pro Football Reference.

Warner's 88.6 overall Pro Football Focus grade was the highest among NFL linebackers, and the third-year star was San Francisco's highest-graded defender.

Fred Warner trusts Shanahan and Lynch's vision for the 49ers, feels 2020 is the last losing season

There is so much uncertainty for the San Francisco 49ers as they embark into the 2021 offseason. Nearly 40 players are scheduled to become free agents, and the team is pressed up against a salary cap that is expected to drop from $198.2 million to a number that could be as low as $175 million. General manager John Lynch said this week that the 49ers are operating under the assumption that they will have $175 million to work with this year. Anything more would be a bonus. That means some tough decisions may be on the horizon, and the roster could look very different next season. Fred Warner, who will need a contract extension himself fairly soon, isn't too worried about the 49ers' future. After all, 2020's downfall had more to do with injuries than anything else.
