Jauan Jennings on being drafted by 49ers: ‘It’s going to be hard to stop us’

Apr 25, 2020 at 3:44 PM--

New San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings was all smiles while speaking with NFL reporters on Saturday. He had just been made a seventh-round selection and expressed his eagerness to get to work on the football field -- you know, once that is finally allowed. That, of course, is dependent on the COVID-19 pandemic's timeline.

Jennings was asked how he envisions fitting in with his new squad. He will join a receiver group that lost veteran Emmanuel Sanders, but has young talent in Deebo Samuel and Kendrick Bourne, and added former Arizona State receiver Brandon Aiyuk in the first round of the draft.

"I look at this offensive, and I see a receiver in Deebo Samuel," Jennings responded. "I've known him since the SEC days. He's a great receiver, and he's always had that dog, that gritty attitude that I'm going to bring as well.

"Jimmy Garoppolo, you got him in the backfield throwing the rock. It's just going to be hard to stop us in my mind. We've got a lot of weapons, and I just can't wait to go out there and help."

Jennings isn't too familiar with the 49ers offense yet. That will change in the coming months. He did, of course, watch the team's impressive playoff run in January and February.

"I'm just excited to get there and be a part of the great team that they already have," Jennings said. "For me to come in, it's a blessing, and I'm extremely grateful and cannot wait to go work my butt off for them. They gave me a chance, and I'm going to do my best not to disappoint."

49ers will have to play disciplined, balanced football to stop Patriots' Cam Newton, says Shanahan

Cam Newton could spell trouble for the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan knows that his defense will need to play disciplined football against the athletic quarterback if the 49ers hope to escape Foxborough with a victory. The 49ers had trouble stopping athletic quarterback Kyler Murray of the Arizona Cardinals, who rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in the season opener. While Newton isn't the same type of athlete, his size makes him tough to bring down and, therefore, very dangerous. "It's a huge challenge," Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area this week. "Cam still can run. He's still fast. Not fast like Kyler, but it's a little bit different style of running and the way they use him. It's extremely effective in the red zone

The 49ers aren't going down without a fight

In what was the closest thing to a must win game as you can have this early in the season, the San Francisco 49ers reminded everyone why it's not time to write them off yet. On a primetime stage, the 49ers delivered a performance that sent a powerful message to the rest of the league, that message being this team is still very good and should be feared. The Los Angeles Rams came into this Week 6 matchup playing some of the best football in the league through the first 5 weeks, and the 49ers made them look like a middling team at best. The game plan devised by head coach Kyle Shanahan and his staff was nothing short of brilliant, and the execution by the players was absolutely phenomenal. The 49ers offense came out firing on all cylinders from the jump, putting together a
