Next Gen Stats: 49ers RB Matt Breida is really, really fast

Oct 7, 2019 at 6:23 PM--

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin may have won the "Forty Yards of Gold" competition this offseason, but you can't leave running back Matt Breida's name out of the conversation while discussing the NFL's fastest player.

According to Next Gen Stats, the 49ers back now owns two of the three fastest speeds by a ball carrier over the last two seasons.

The fastest speed saw Breida reaching 22.30 MPH on Monday night against the Cleveland Browns, giving the 49ers an early 7-0 lead. He came close to reaching that speed during Week 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.

Breida had another touchdown on the next drive, this time after hauling in a Jimmy Garoppolo-thrown pass in the end zone, giving San Francisco a 14-0 lead.

Ford made an impact when he was on the field, finishing the year with 6.5 sacks during his limited playing time. The veteran defender spoke with reporters on Thursday via a video conference call and was asked how much he anticipates participating in practices once the 49ers ramp up training camp work this weekend.

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo offers self-evaluation of 'productive' 2019 season, ready to take the next step

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had a pretty good statistical season last year. He passed for 3,978 yards — the fourth-most in franchise history, joining names like Steve Young and Jeff Garcia. That's not bad. He tossed 27 touchdowns through the air and added another on the ground, but also threw 13 interceptions. That's something to improve. Garoppolo guided the 49ers to 13 regular-season wins, a division championship, home-field advantage, and a playoff run that ended with a trip to the Super Bowl. Again, not bad. Yet, Garoppolo shouldered much of the blame for February's Super Bowl loss. Then the 49ers flirted with the idea of bringing in Tom Brady. Garoppolo knew that's just part of the
