The San Francisco 49ers got another first-round draft pick to add onto their 31st overall selection after trading star defensive tackle DeForest Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts for the 13th overall pick in this year’s draft. This opens up a world of opportunities for the Niners, who can now draft a premier player on day one. Their main and central need is at wide receiver especially after Emmanuel Sanders left in free agency to sign with the New Orleans Saints. Other draft needs are at defensive tackle, safety, and offensive line.
The San Francisco 49ers rookie class of last season performed to outstanding levels, with Nick Bosa winning Defensive Rookie of the Year. Deebo Samuel looking like a future go-to receiver for Jimmy Garoppolo with his versatility and his receiving skills. Jalen Hurd has yet to play a game but showed upside during the offseason.

There is almost no way this draft class can live up to the power the last draft class had, but I’ll attempt to predict how the 49ers will make an attempt to change their future now.

Well, we have made it sports fans, the end of another NFL season. Two teams remain and they will meet later today to decide a champion. Earlier in the season, both teams had some major injury worries. When Patrick Mahomes dislocated his knee, you could hear a collective gasp in the sports community. But he is back under center for the Kansas City Chiefs. Continue reading →
After playing 20 games and going through a grueling season full of injuries and comebacks, the Chiefs and 49ers are here, in America’s biggest game, and on America’s biggest stage. Here lie the legacies of two storied franchises. The Kansas City Chiefs are trying to win a Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years, while the Niners trying to return to glory after a 25 year absence. Both teams are trying to erase the past, which they’d both love to forget for different reasons.
