49ers bubble watch: Inside linebackers feature competition next to NaVorro Bowman

The San Francisco 49ers have questions at almost every position while they work to figure out their 53-man roster. We’ll break down the bubble watch for each one. Today we look at the inside linebackers. We’re nearing the end of another week without 49ers football. That’s something I suppose! We are a little over five weeks away from the start of training camp, so that’s a plus. With that in mind, we’re back for another round of the 49ers bubble watch. Over the next week and a half, we’re going to take a look at each position, and what the bubble watch looks like. As we’ve...

ESPN ranks 49ers as one of the NFL's worst defenses

Bill Barnwell ranked the defensive triplets for all 32 NFL teams. The 49ers finished poorly, with NaVorro Bowman, Eric Reid, and Aaron Lynch. Last week, ESPN’s Bill Barnwell ranked out the offensive triplets for each team. The 49ers ranked No. 31, with only the Cleveland Browns behind them. This week, Barnwell is back ranking defensive triplets. He acknowledged it is difficult to separate them out like you can with quarterbacks and offensive skill position players. But it’s still something fun to discuss as we consider what defensive units are out there. The 49ers move up a bit in this...

PFF explains why NaVorro Bowman was not on their Top 101 list

Joe Staley was the only player in PFF’s list of the 101 best players right now. Will we see NaVorro Bowman in the list next year? Pro Football Focus recently provided a list of the 101 best players right now, and Joe Staley was the only member of the San Francisco 49ers on the list. I was not exactly shocked by that, but I was curious why NaVorro Bowman did not end up on the list. It took him some time to really get going and shake off the rust from his knee injury, but by the end of the season, he was starting to look more like the Bowman of old than the rusty Bowman that started the...

Navarro Bowman on thinking about his knee: “[Not] at all.”

The 49ers linebacker spoke to the media last week and talked about how his knee injury is truly behind him, the NFL Top 100, and the competition for who plays alongside him. You can see the full interview here. Where do you think it’s at this point in the offseason during minicamp compared to the other minicamps you’ve been apart of. I think we’re in a good spot. I think everyone understands and knows what coach is trying to accomplish. Got this break coming up and we just got to keep it in our heads, continue to think about it and not forget the things we’ve learned so far. I...

49ers roster breakdowns, 90-in-90: ILB NaVorro Bowman

Each year, we run a series of post called "90-in-90" here at Niners Nation. The idea is that we'll take a look at every single player on the roster, from the very bottom to the top and break them down a few different ways. This is to help give everyone a basic understanding of a roster. Of course, this roster will change, and some days we'll have more than one so it's not strictly one per day but you get the idea. Today, we’re trying something a little bit different in our 90-in-90 series. Socalisteph and 49ersfangirl are going to put together some video versions of our regular 90-in-90...

NaVorro Bowman calls NFL Network Top 100 vote 'totally bogus'

The 49ers linebacker is feeling better than ever in his second season of football following knee surgery. Optimism abounds! NFL Network has been announcing their Top 100 players over the last few weeks, and San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman came in at No. 61. And apparently he thinks the whole thing is nonsense. Bowman spoke with media after Wednesday's practice, and in discussing his recovery from knee surgery, he talked about his status around the league. He feels his knee is in much better shape, and he feels he is the top linebacker in the league. That all led to his...
