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?

Signing Brandon Aiyuk to a contract extension should be 49ers' top offseason priority

Super Bowl 58 showcased that the San Francisco 49ers' roster has room for improvement despite possessing one of the most talent-rich units in the NFL. The right side of the offensive line could use some reinforcement. The cornerback position opposite Charvarius Ward might need addressing. Additionally, the 49ers' run defense struggled during the postseason. However, the offseason focus should center on wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, the latest star player due for a contract extension. With the team exercising its fifth-year option on the wideout, Aiyuk is signed through the upcoming season. Now, the question remains whether both sides can reach an agreement. While the 49ers have been fortunate in previous years, signing their star players to contract extensions

Klint Kubiak is among several assistant coaches departing the San Francisco 49ers for opportunities elsewhere. He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak
