13. S Eric Reid Drafted By: San Francisco 49ers (2013)
Reid was a consensus All American free safety and came to the 49ers with a lot of hype. The hype paid off immediately as Eric Reid made a Pro Bowl immediately his rookie season, recording 91 tackles and four interceptions for the 12–4 49ers. He was a central part of one of the league’s top defenses under Jim Harbaugh and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. Reid continued to start at free safety four more seasons in San Francisco before moving to Carolina in 2018.
Of course, you might know Eric Reid more for what he’s done off the field now than what he did on it. In 2017, Reid joined 49ers teammate Colin Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem in protest of police violence toward black men. Reid continues to collaborate with Kaepernick to address ongoing social justice issues and to help people and communities in need.
