Seven other 49ers were selected as alternates: OL Jake Brendel, K Robbie Gould, RB Christian McCaffrey, WR Ray-Ray McCloud (return specialist), WR Deebo Samuel, CB Charvarius Ward and P Mitch Wishnowsky.

Bosa, one of the frontrunners for Defensive Player of the Year, earned his third Pro Bowl selection with 15.5 sacks and an NFL-best 38 quarterback hits. Hufanga made his first Pro Bowl after recording 75 tackles, 4 interceptions, 2.0 sacks and two forced fumbles. Warner notched his second selection (2021, 2023).
Kittle made his fourth Pro Bowl by catching 46 passes for 593 yards and six touchdowns, including 12.9 average yards per catch which ranks second in the NFL. Williams notched his 10th career selection and his third straight selection since he was acquired by the 49ers from Washington in 2020.
