Fantastic early morning folks, and a satisfied Monday to you. It was an additional really quiet working day in the 49ers media, so all I have bought for you now is a handful of prognostications and very best circumstance eventualities.
The all-earth basic safety will transform 30 right before the 2019 year and is coming off an harm-shortened seasoned (fractured leg). It’s hard to think that he has a lot more than a few many years still left in him right before age catches up, and he’s expressed a want to perform for the Cowboys. Must Richard Sherman be able to successfully recruit him listed here, and a sensible agreement (3 many years, 30 million, 12 million signing reward?) be agreed upon, he would unquestionably stabilize a shaky 49ers secondary that has not been able to discover a constant existence at basic safety. Moreover, his existence could do miracles for Jaquiski Tartt, allowing for him to perform a true potent or moneybacker position, like Kam Chancellor was able to do so effectively in Seattle.
The Iowa TE is a monster in the acquiring activity and a knowledgeable blocker, just like his predecessor George Kittle. The problem, nevertheless, is that he’s really unlikely to achieve the 49ers next-spherical decide on, and I just can’t envision a scenario in which the 49ers trade up into the again of the to start with spherical to choose him. If they did, nevertheless, they would have just one of the most devastating TE combos in the latest memory, just one that would probably make the patchwork WR corps glance considerably superior on the perimeters.
This saga has taken some attention-grabbing twists and turns in excess of the previous month. Brown has expressed deep dissatisfaction with the Steelers corporation, has openly shown a want to perform for the 49ers, and is now staying investigated by the NFL for a domestic disturbance. Once predicted to have a to start with spherical pricetag in trade, most sports pundits now tend to concur that he’s well worth a 3rd working day decide on at very best. Would the Steelers be willing to risk an additional LeVeon Bell holdout, or would the 49ers sixth spherical decide on suffice? Brown will transform 31 this year, and just one will have to question if his wage will overshadow his potential as he will get up there in age.
Now we know it is the offseason. Kyler Murray had an remarkable year that led to a Heisman trophy, and he’s been drafted extremely in the MLB. There’s superior purpose to think that if he wasn’t 5’9”, he’d be pushing for the to start with overall decide on. Seem, there are limited QBs about the league. Seattle has just one, New Orleans has just one, and they do quite effectively. Doug Flutie was 5’10” and had exceptional college or university and CFL careers. Sonny Jurgensen, Joe Theismann, and Michael Vick ended up all vertically challenged but profitable as effectively. Kyler Murray, nevertheless, would be the shortest QB to perform in the NFL in the previous 50 many years or so.
Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports Bay Area hopes that a monstrous merge in which Murray puts his speed on exhibit could press him to the prime of the draft, as a result rising the price of the 49ers’ decide on (or shot at Nick Bosa). I have attempted to stay positive and keep the glass half entire with a lot of these projections, but I just just can’t see this just one going on. Even if he does rip off the sub-4.4 40 that he’s rumored to have, I just can’t see him receiving drafted in the prime 30 or so.
