Eric Davis on NaVorro Bowman Top 100 ranking: “He should be higher on this list”

May 26, 2016 at 7:10 PM--


Yesterday, it was revealed that San Francisco 49ers ILB NaVorro Bowman made the NFL Top 100 list, coming in at number 61. NFL Network's Eric Davis, along with a number of the Niner Faithful, believe that Bowman should have been ranked higher in the list voted on by his peers.

"This guy, before the injury in 2014, was the best linebacker in football and he only comes back after missing an entire season after that gruesome injury we saw him get in the NFC Championship game and lead the league in tackles," says Davis.

Davis goes on to state that Bowman is once again starting to play like the best middle linebacker in football.

"How can this guy be number 61 if we are keeping it 100? We know that he should be higher. He came back off the injury and he was already playing that way, leading the league. What do you think he's going to be in year two? He should be higher on this list," proclaims Davis.

Bowman, who played at a high level during his first season back after recovering from a torn ACL and MCL, was one of the lone bright spots on last season's 49ers team that finished the season 5-11. He started all 16 games during his 2015 season and had 154 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two passes defended and a forced fumble.

What do you think of Bowman's ranking within this Top 100 list?

Yes, free agency has come and gone, but NFL rosters are about to undergo further changes this week, with the 2024 NFL Draft slated for Thursday. Pro Football Focus' Amelia Probst posted a power ranking based on the analytics site's data on each roster and the offseason roster moves made so far.
