Buckner Makes the List
Former San Francisco defensive tackle, DeForest Buckner, earned his first All-Pro selection. The 49ers traded the defensive tackle prior to last April’s draft to the Indianapolis Colts for the 13th overall selection. Buckner had played his first four seasons with the 49ers, earning a Pro Bowl selection in 2018. The 49ers replaced Buckner with rookie Javon Kinlaw out of South Carolina. The trade allowed the 49ers with the financial flexibility to extend other free agents. Buckner and the Colts take on the Buffalo Bills in the Wildcard round this weekend.
