No 49ers make NFL Top 100 list in 2015

Jun 10, 2015 at 9:52 PM--


Every year after polling NFL players, NFL Network compiles a list of the top 100 players in the league. During the offseason, the players vote on their peers based on performance during the previous year and predicted performance during the upcoming season.

Last year, there were eight San Francisco 49ers players on the NFL Top 100 list. This year, there are none.

The following were the 49ers on the list in 2014 with their rank in parentheses.

(27) Patrick Willis
(33) Aldon Smith
(46) Frank Gore
(47) NaVorro Bowman
(51) Vernon Davis
(69) Justin Smith
(75) Joe Staley
(81) Colin Kaepernick

Three of these players from 2014 are no longer on the team. Running back Frank Gore was a free agent and signed with the Indianapolis Colts. Linebacker Patrick Willis and defensive lineman Justin Smith have retired.

As for the others, linebacker NaVorro Bowman is returning from a severe ACL and MCL injury. Tight end Vernon Davis had one of the worst statistical seasons of his career while quarterback Colin Kaepernick and offensive lineman Joe Staley were part of the same ineffective offense.

What does all of this mean? Well, for one thing, it looks like the 49ers are flying under the radar among NFL players as well as within the media.

Maybe that still happens. But the 49ers will need to get back some of the players from their growing injury list. The defensive line, which is vital to the defense's success, has already taken a significant hit with the losses of two former first-round picks in Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas. Both saw their seasons end during Week 2 after suffering torn ACLs. Here is an updated list of the 49ers' current injury

Two San Francisco 49ers were named to the list. The first to represent the Niners is second-year pass rusher Nick Bosa, who comes in at No. 42. "Nick Bosa proved unblockable at times along the San Francisco 49ers' talented defensive front," wrote Bleacher Report. "No other rookie came close to the 80 pressures he generated last season, according to Pro Football Focus. Last year's No. 2 overall pick is well on his way to superstardom and will get there if he
