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."

The San Francisco 49ers are moving forward with the assumption that this year's salary cap will be set at $175 million. It will probably be a bit higher, but general manager John Lynch would rather start with the floor. "Anything that we get (above $175 million), I think, is going to be a bonus and gravy, and will help us," John Lynch told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on The TK Show podcast. "But if it's 175, we'll make it work, and I think we can keep a lot of these players together. You can't keep everyone, but I think we can prioritize. We'll have a very good plan, and I feel really good about our team, moving forward." Of course, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's

Rice joined 95.7 The Game on Monday morning and made his case for a deal after being asked if the move is something San Francisco should pursue. "Yeah, I think they should (trade for him)," Rice said on The Morning Roast.
