The 49ers have two first-team All-Pros this season, as The Associated Press unveiled the final tally of votes from a panel of 50 media members Friday.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel and left tackle Trent Williams were selected to the first team, and edge rusher Nick Bosa received votes but fell short of top honors.

Unsurprisingly, Williams received 46 of the 50 votes at left tackle, with the Los Angeles Chargers' Rashawn Slater the next-closest at the position with two. Williams had the highest regular-season Pro Football Focus rating of any player regardless of position, and he remains the NFL's best at his position even as he nears the end of his age-33 campaign.

Samuel received 21 votes, the third-most among wide receivers. Cooper Kupp of the Los Angeles Rams and Davante Adams of the Green Bay Packers were unanimous selections at the position, and Minnesota Vikings star Justin Jefferson finished only one vote behind Samuel.

Bosa garnered five votes, finishing fifth among edge rushers. T.J. Watt of the Pittsburgh Steelers (50 votes) and Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns (29 votes) were the two first-team selections, and Robert Quinn of the Chicago Bears (nine votes) and Maxx Crosby of the Las Vegas Raiders (six votes) finished ahead of Bosa.

It's a fitting honor for Williams and Samuel, as both earn first-team marks from the AP for the first time. As for Bosa, perhaps this will provide fuel for the young star to put out a performance similar to his ridiculous 2019 playoff exploits.
