The best San Francisco 49ers kickers ever have all had a part in some of the biggest moments in franchise history. NFL games can be won and lost by one or two points, making every made or missed kick of the greatest importance and every starting kicker a potential hero.

While recent stars like Joe Nedney and Phil Dawson have made their mark in the 49ers’ past, early standouts like Ray Wersching and Tommy Davis helped craft their own legacies in the old days of the franchise.

So which of these kickers from San Francisco 49ers history deserves to rank near the top of the list? Who are the best 49ers kickers of all-time? Vote below, and check back to see what other football fans thought.
