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

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.

Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus recently ranked the NFL's top 10 pass-catching tandems ahead of the 2021 season. For the San Francisco 49ers, you could probably make an argument for wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk to be thrown in the mix of some combination. However, he is just entering his second season and still has much to prove. Instead, Treash went with All-Pro tight end George Kittle and third-year wideout Deebo Samuel. The duo comes in at No. 10 on the list. To prove Treash correct, the duo will need to stay healthy in 2021. Both players, like much of the roster, struggled with injuries last season. Kittle missed half the season, and Samuel missed

Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus created a list of the top 25 players under 25 years old, and two young defenders represent the San Francisco 49ers. All-Pro linebacker Fred Warner (age 24) tops the ranking at No. 1 overall. "At a position that has become ever-more difficult to play, given how good NFL offenses have become at attacking defensive weaknesses, Warner has become arguably the game's best linebacker," wrote Monson. "The former third-round pick earned a PFF coverage grade of 91.1 in 2020, allowing a passer rating of just 81.9 into his coverage, some 25 points lower than the average at the position." San Francisco made Warner a third-round selection out of BYU in
