3. Dwight Clark (1979 to 1987)

At No. 3 on the list we have the man who made "The Catch," Dwight Clark.

He is, of course, remembered for that fateful day when he made a game-winning touchdown catch against the Dallas Cowboys in the 1981 NFC Championship game to send the 49ers to their first Super Bowl.

Although the numbers Clark put up won't blow you away, especially compared to the pass-happy era we live in today, he was a consistent contributor to the team.

His best season was arguably 1981 where he had 85 receptions, 1,105 yards receiving and four touchdowns. He would earn a Pro Bowl selection that year.

Although his yards and receptions were slightly down the following season, he earned both Pro Bowl and All-Pro selections in 1982.

Clark would finish his career with the 49ers with 6,750 receiving yards landing him at No. 3 on the all-time list for the team. He would also win two Super Bowls during his tenure.

Sadly, Clark would pass in June of 2018 after a battle with ALS. Later that year, though, the 49ers would honor him by unveiling a statue of "The Catch" at Levi's Stadium.
