7. Freddie Solomon (1978 to 1985)

At No. 7 on this list we have to jump back to the Bill Walsh-era 49ers, for Freddie Solomon.

He actually began his career with the Miami Dolphins then joined the 49ers in 1978. He won two Super Bowls during his tenure with the 49ers. During his eight seasons with the 49ers, he amassed 4,873 receiving yards, putting him at No. 10 on the franchise's list.

An interesting point about Solomon is that he was actually the No. 1 read for quarterback Joe Montana on "The Catch," which ultimately went Dwight Clark's way.

Still, Solomon occupies a key spot in Niners lore and was a major contributor to San Francisco's first Super Bowl-winning team.
