SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
Four San Francisco 49ers make inaugural Players’ All-Pro Team
The 49ers keep adding to their trophy cases, this time with more All-Pro accolades.
The NFL Players’ Association announced their inaugural All-Pro team Wednesday morning, a list solely composed of votes from various NFL players around the league.
Four players from the San Francisco 49ers, the most for any organization in the NFL, were named, including. fullback Kyle Juszcyzk, left tackle Trent Williams, defensive end Nick Bosa and linebacker Fred Warner.
Juszcyck has been a mainstay on NFL honors ballots for years, with 2022 marking his seventh consecutive year of making the Pro Bowl. “Juice” came over from Baltimore prior to the 2017 season, amassing 1756 yards from scrimmage and 13 total touchdowns since coming to San Francisco.
Trent Williams has also been a regular name on NFL voting lists, making his tenth consecutive Pro Bowl in 2022. Williams was traded to the 49ers from the Washington franchise at the 2020 NFL draft, sending back a 2020 fifth-round pick and a 2021 third-rounder. The 34-year-old has lived up to the billing in the Bay, scoring a 93 overall PFF grade this season.
Likely the least surprising name on the All-Pro team, Nick Bosa has been a man amongst boys in 2022. Finishing the regular season with a league-leading 18.5 sacks (his career-best as well), the Bosa Bear was also first in quarterback pressures (73) and sack rate (4.0%). Only 25 years old, many not only consider the 49ers’ pass rusher to be the unanimous defensive MVP but also in the conversation for MVP as well.
Finally, the team’s defensive captain Fred Warner made the players’ All-Pro team.
Warner finishes 2022 as the team’s leader in tackles at 130 combined this season. A true sideline-to-sideline player, the BYU alum added a second Pro Bowl selection to his resume. Featuring in all 17 regular-season games, he notched one INT, one forced fumble and 10 passes defended in 2022.
It's time players had their say.

The NFLPA’s Players’ All-Pro team is new in 2022 and has some stipulations. Players can not vote for themselves, or fellow teammates. Voting was done by position group, as well as the position each player lines up against.
