NaVorro Bowman ranked No. 61 on NFL Top 100 list

May 25, 2016 at 8:39 PM--


San Francisco 49ers ILB NaVorro Bowman may not have ranked in Pro Football Focus' Top 101 players of 2015, but he came in at number 61 in the NFL's Top 100 of 2016 list. The list, voted on by players, is in its sixth season on NFL Network.

Bowman, who played at a high level during his first season back after recovering from a torn ACL and MCL, started all 16 games during his 2015 season with the 49ers. It was his first season without ILB Patrick Willis by his side. During those games, he had 154 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two passes defended and a forced fumble.

The 154 combined tackles were the most of his career and ranked first in the league in 2015. The next closest was LB D'Qwell Jackson of the Indianapolis Colts with 150 combined tackles.

'Top 100 Players of 2016': No. 61 NaVorro Bowman

"He's going to be a Hall of Famer," said current Washington Redskins defensive end and former 49ers player Ricky Jean-Francois. "The man had a season that he got hurt, came back, and balled. He did everything he needed to."

"Having a linebacker like him, I know had to be hard for offensive coordinators because they can't game plan," continued Jean-Francois.

"I rarely see lineman get their hands on him," said Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill, who calls Bowman a "beast."

Congratulations to Bowman, who missed last year's list because of his injury, on the ranking.

49ers Invasions are real and coming to an NFL stadium near you

Every game is a home game for the 49ers, and it's both by design and 30 years in the making. Late last month, the 3-win San Francisco 49ers headed south to face the 3-win Los Angeles Rams in a pivotal NFC West matchup. The Niners' fourth victory of the 2022 NFL regular season was abnormal on numerous fronts, highlighted by a "Trifecta" performance by San Francisco's new running back Christian McCaffrey, who threw a first-half touchdown pass before scoring on the ground and through the air in the second half. The Rams had no answer for McCaffrey or quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who played his best game of the season, as he led the 49ers



49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo on NFL future: "I'll worry about that at the end of the year"

Jimmy Garoppolo is setting himself up for a nice payday next year. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is scheduled to be a free agent, and his market is expected to be much improved compared to this past offseason. Garoppolo expected to be elsewhere this season, even after his trade stock plummeted following offseason shoulder surgery. With no one interested in a quarterback going through rehab, Garoppolo signed a restructured one-year deal with the 49ers to serve as Trey Lance's backup. The one caveat being that San Francisco couldn't use the franchise tag on him in 2023, allowing him to test the free agent market freely. Garoppolo entered the season looking to support Lance and do what he could in his role as QB2. However, everything changed in Week 2 when
