The San Francisco 49ers have a record of 9-3-1, with three games remaining. They hold a game-and-a-half lead over Seattle in the division and have the second-best overall record in the NFC.

The 49ers have several big stars, including Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman, Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis. However, the measure of a team in the NFL is also based on the play of their unsung heroes.

I have two main criteria to be on this list, as an unsung hero cannot be one of the 49ers' star players. They also must be away from the media spotlight, which immediately rules out Colin Kaepernick and Alex Smith.

Any player who has made a Pro Bowl also cannot be considered for our list. Let's take a closer look at the 49ers' unsung heroes in 2012.
