Christian McCaffrey, Nick Bosa among 49ers’ Pro Bowl fan vote leaders


Several 49ers players topped Pro Bowl fan voting, along with the team, which collectively received the most votes in the NFL.

Defensive end Nick Bosa, linebacker Fred Warner, left tackle Trent Williams, running back Christian McCaffrey and fullback Kyle Juszczyk all received the most fan votes for their respective positions. Voting began on November 15 and ended on Thursday, with fan votes counting for one-third in determining the final 88 Pro Bowl players. Player and coach votes represent the remaining percentage.

A total of 17 49ers players are in the top 10 when voting for their position. The Pro Bowl festivities will be held in Las Vegas on February 5, 2023 at Allegiant Stadium, with final rosters announced on December 21.

Here’s the full list of ranked 49ers players, and where they ranked if they were in the top 10 of their position group:

  • 1st – DE Nick Bosa (239,151 votes)
  • 1st – L. B. Fred Warner (149,521)
  • 1st – R. B. Christian McCaffrey (205.990)
  • 1st – FB Kyle Juszczyk (227, 484)
  • 1st – Trent Williams (134.491)
  • 2nd – T.E. George Kittle (201905)
  • 2nd – LS Taybor Pepper
  • 3rd – SS Talanoa Hufanga
  • 3rd – P. Mitch Wishnowsky
  • 3rd – RS Ray-Ray McCloud
  • 4th – K Robbie Gould
  • 4th – ST Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles
  • 6th – L. B. Dre Greenlaw
  • 8th – G. Aaron Banks
  • 9th – WR Deebo Samuel
  • 9th – CB Charvarius Ward
  • 9th – C Jake Brendel

While the players who received the most votes for their positions come as no surprise, there are a few surprisingly low rankings that are likely to rise after player and coach votes are tallied.

Dre Greenlaw has had a Pro Bowl caliber season and should take credit. The linebacker may not be as well-known as Fred Warner, but you can bet opponents know exactly who Greenlaw is.

Greenlaw leads the team in tackles with 111 – 75 solo – while also scoring two forced fumbles, two fumbles, one interception and six pass interruptions. Warner, by comparison, has logged 98 tackles – 61 solo – with one interception, two sacks and 10 pass breakups.

While Deebo Samuel hasn’t achieved the stats he achieved during the 2021 NFL season, it’s still surprising to see him rank ninth among all wide receivers. The versatile wideout ranks second in receiving yards on the team (612) to Brandon Aiyuk (774), but Samuel also has 228 rushing yards, giving him 840 all-purpose yards and five total touchdowns.

Charvarius Ward’s ranking is also surprising among fan votes, but again, like Greenlaw, the cornerback could move up after the other factors are added.

Ward was solid in coverage, tied for third in pass breakings among cornerbacks who have played at least 80 percent of a defense’s snaps. Ward also ranks third with 15 stops, or what amounts to a “fail” for the offense, per PFF.

While all players would love to receive Pro Bowl honors and participate in the festivities, which include a football game, they would much rather prepare for Super Bowl LVII, which will be held next week on February 12 in Glendale, Ariz.
