Greatest 49ers of all time: No. 12 – Bob St. Clair
Career Stats with 49ers: 119 games played
A third-round pick of the 49ers in 1953, Bob St. Clair went on to become one of the greatest offensive linemen to ever grace the gridiron in San Francisco.
Primarily a right tackle during his career, St. Clair stood out due to his massive 6-9 frame and surprising athleticism. That mix of physical tools and talent earned him five trips to the Pro Bowl, including four straight from 1958 to 1961.
Known as “The Geek,” St. Clair spent almost his entire football career in San Francisco. He played high school football in San Francisco, went to the University of San Francisco (but finished at Tulsa after USF ended their football program) and spent his entire NFL career with the 49ers. I’m guessing he truly enjoyed life in the Bay Area.
St. Clair’s efforts with the 49ers eventually earned him a trip to the Hall of Fame in 1990.
