49ers' Brooks, Reid join #NFLRanks list

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Two more San Francisco 49ers players check in Wednesday on ESPN.com’s Top 100 players list.

Linebacker Ahmad Brooks is No. 74 among defensive players while safety Eric Reid is ranked No. 71.

"Brooks recorded a postseason-best 4.5 sacks last year, the most in a postseason since 2010 (Terrell Suggs, five)," read the list. "During the regular season, Brooks also set a career high with 8.5 sacks."

Reid, meanwhile, has become an elder statesman, of sorts, in the 49ers' secondary with fellow safety Antoine Bethea currently concussed.

"Eric Reid intercepted four passes in 2013," the report read, "second-most among rookies last season."

Brooks and Reid join Bethea and right tackle Anthony Davis, who were ranked No. 97 and No. 81 on the defensive and offensive lists, respectively.
