Why Simms believes 49ers have NFL's best roster excluding QBs originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Add Chris Simms to the list of pundits confident in the 49ers heading into the 2022 NFL season.
On Thursday's episode of the "Chris Simms Unbuttoned" podcast, Simms and co-host Ahmed Fareed discussed their top-5 NFL rosters -- sans quarterbacks -- with the former having San Francisco atop his list.
Simms added that rookie wide receiver Danny Gray's speed makes him an interesting prospect as well.
Regarding San Francisco's defense, Simms projects Javon Kinlaw to be a "f---ing killer" and lauded Nick Bosa's and Fred Warner's defensive abilities, calling the former "one of the best defensive players in football" and the latter "the best middle linebacker."
"I look at them ... and I just go, 'S--t, what is the issue with them?' -- and that's where I make them the No. 1 roster in all of football," Simms concluded.
Simms' confidence in the 49ers is not unfounded.
With so many experts' confidence growing in what the 49ers have, it's easy to see why fans are excited about this upcoming season.
