Bruce Miller's play has benefited the 49ers greatly throughout their run to the Super Bowl.

The San Francisco 49ers latest playoff journey has led them to Super Bowl XLVII, and the 2012-13 NFC Champions wouldn't have been able accomplish such a feat without some of the unsung heroes that quietly helped lead the way. 

As the 49ers proceed through the next two weeks leading up to the sixth Super Bowl appearance in franchise history, veteran leaders like Frank Gore, Patrick Willis and Vernon Davis will get plenty of well-deserved time in the spotlight. 

Young and blossoming stars like Colin Kaepernick, Michael Crabtree and NaVorro Bowman will also be publicly commended for their efforts in bringing the Red and Gold within one step of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. The play of said players absolutely warrants it, from the first snap in the divisional round win over Green Bay to the final whistle in the NFC Championship Game win over Atlanta

But San Francisco was able to grind out two impressive postseason victories as a team, with all parts working as one. The following slides will present five 49ers who may not receive an abundance of attention, but are undoubtedly deserving of individual praise for getting this team to New Orleans Feb. 3 to face the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.
