Richard Sherman knows a thing or two about NFL wide receivers. He's been covering them for eight seasons. Very few might be better suited to evaluate the San Francisco 49ers' current group of inexperienced but talented wide receivers. That's exactly what the veteran cornerback did during an interview on KNBR after Tuesday's practice.

Here is what Sherman had to say about several of the 49ers' wideouts as he described how versatile the group is this season.

Dante Pettis

Richard Sherman: "I think Pettis is going to be the biggest surprise for most people outside of this building. He's going to take a huge step. He's worked really hard. He's really dynamic. Him being healthy will change the trajectory of this team tremendously."

Deebo Samuel

RS: "Deebo, if he gets the ball in his hands, he's incredibly difficult to tackle. He's like a running back with the ball; kind of like in a Golden Tate mold. That's going to be exciting for a team to see."

Jalen Hurd

RS: "Hurd, they're using him as kind of an X factor. He can play the tight end, the F, the Z, the zebra. And they're using him as an enforcer in that receiver room, and he's doing well in that role."

Marquise Goodwin

RS: "Obviously, Marquise is going to take the top off a defense, and he's gotten more consistent in his route running, and his releases, and just taking a real handle, a real hold over that receiver room."

Jordan Matthews

RS: "Jordan Matthews coming in, a veteran presence. Consistent hands, always in the right place, making sure he's executing properly. That's what you can expect from him every time."

Trent Taylor

RS: "Trent Taylor, man, is lightyears ahead of where he was last year. He's back, growing from his rookie year when he had that incredible year. This year, his back isn't hurting him. You can see his explosion, his dynamic, his suddenness. He'll probably catch 80, 90 balls, I would assume. I'm excited to see it."
