Raheem Mostert earns highest speed rating among running backs in Madden NFL 21

Jul 14, 2020 at 12:32 PM--


Two NFL players tied for the highest speed rating among running backs in EA Sports' latest installment of the popular multi-platform football video game, Madden NFL 21. One, Matt Breida, is a former San Francisco 49ers running back, and the other, Raheem Mostert, has requested a trade away from the Niners if the two sides can't agree on a reworked contract.

Both Breida, now with the Miami Dolphins, and Mostert earned speed ratings of 95, according to our friends over at @TheSFNiners. Below is the complete list of the top-10.


Mostert led the team with 772 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns on 137 carries last season. Many took serious notice after the running back's 29-carry, 220-yard, and four-touchdown performance against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game, helping lift the 49ers to a Super Bowl berth.

"My hunger, right now, more than ever, is so pure," Mostert said in May while noting that he spent this offseason gaining muscle in anticipation of an increased workload. "I want to just get back to that level and exceed what I did last year, times ten. That's just my mindset, right now."

Mostert entered the NFL after signing with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue in 2015. He initially signed with San Francisco on November 28, 2016, and then signed a new three-year deal on March 15, 2019. Mostert is entering the second year of that deal.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk among PFF's Year 3 breakout candidates

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was a hot pick last year as a candidate primed to have a breakout season. Instead, it was third-year wideout Deebo Samuel who emerged as one of the best in the game. Aiyuk was slow out of the gate, hauling in just one pass for six yards in the Niners' first two games. He played just 51 percent of the offensive snaps through Week 2. Aiyuk finished the season strong, playing at least 90 percent of the offensive snaps in each game starting in Week 9. He amassed 43 receptions for 685 yards and four touchdowns during that span. Can Aiyuk have a Samuel-like breakout season in his third year—minus the running back snaps. One thousand, four hundred five of Samuel's 1,770 all-purpose yards came as a receiver. In 2021,



49ers' Deebo Samuel, George Kittle among PFF's top offensive duos

The San Francisco 49ers would probably love to see Brandon Aiyuk emerge as one of the top receivers in the NFL. That would make an Aiyuk-Deebo Samuel duo a headache for opposing defenses. Until then, the 49ers have two impressive offensive weapons in Samuel and tight end George Kittle. That's good news for second-year quarterback Trey Lance, who is expected to be the team's Week 1 starter after starting only two games as a rookie. The Samuel-Kittle pairing ranks among Pro Football Focus' top five offensive duos heading into the 2022 season. Kambui Bomani explains that both controlling the middle of the field at an elite level landed them within the



Bruschi: 49ers' Trey Lance has 'most to prove' among second-year QBs

The quarterbacks from the 2021 draft class will be linked together and compared for a long time. Most received a significant amount of playing time during their rookie seasons. The one who did not was San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. He started just two games and spent most of his freshman NFL season learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The upcoming season will be different, though. Lance is slated to become the 49ers' full-time starter, with Garoppolo likely to be shipped out of Santa Clara. One ESPN analyst believes Lance has the most to prove among the 2021 first-round quarterback class that also includes Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones. "He is the one that has the most to prove because you almost have to prove your

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined the Bussin' with the Boys podcast this week, joined by Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen. Both are in Tennessee for Kittle's Tight End University. Allen is among several quarterbacks on hand to throw footballs to the large contingent of tight ends. During the lengthy conversation on the Barstool Sports podcast, the topic of fanbases came up. Allen has played in front of Bills Mafia his entire career, while Kittle has been among The Faithful. The two groups create very different atmospheres heading into game days, leading Kittle to reflect on his college playing days at
