Warner Named to Top 10 Linebackers in NFL
Surveying over 50 executives, coaches, scouts and players, ESPN released another position ranking with a 49ers player falling in the Top 10. In the latest ranking, Fred Warner landed as the No. 10 linebacker in the league going into the 2020 NFL season. The linebacker recorded a team-leading 118 tackles, nine passes defensed, 3.0 sacks, three forced fumbles, an interception and a touchdown in 2019. According to Pro Football Focus, he also has the fourth-most pass breakups among linebackers over the last two seasons behind Eric Kendricks (Minnesota Vikings), Cory Littleton (Las Vegas Raiders) and Luke Kuechly (Retired).
Warner and fellow linebacker Kwon Alexander were seen on social media working out together to prepare for the team's upcoming training camp. Check out the video below.
