Ronnie Lott and his teammates from the 1984 San Francisco 49ers need your help.
Lott’s ’84 Niners have made it to the final four of the NFL’s Greatest Team of All-Time Tournament after they happened to narrowly defeat the ’89 San Francisco club.
This time around in the semifinal round, the 49ers will square off with the 2000 Baltimore Ravens. Voting runs through 2 p.m. PT on March 28, 2012.
Lott was also recognized elsewhere on Monday. More on that and 49ers headlines can be found after the jump.
Chris Burke of SI.com continues to rundown the best draft picks of all-time and lists Lott as the greatest No. 8 overall draft selection in NFL history. Lott was a 10-time Pro Bowler, eight-time All-Pro, four-time Super Bowl Champion, a member of the NFL’s All-Decade Teams of the ‘80s and ‘90s, a member of the league’s 75th anniversary team and was inducted in the Hall of Fame’s Class of 2000.
The holders of this year’s No. 8 overall pick are the Miami Dolphins. The first team to draft out of the NFC West is the St. Louis Rams who hold the No. 6 overall pick after making a big trade with the Washington Redskins. NFC West blogger Mike Sando lists all the draft picks for each team in the division and examines which NFL team holds the most picks this year.
Whoever the 49ers draft in 2012 will seemingly be challenged to crack the starting lineup with 20 of 22 starters signed under contract beyond 2012 according to Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle.

The 49ers officially hold seven selections in this year’s draft (three in the first 92 selections) after the team was not rewarded any compensatory picks.
