49ers 8/17 practice: Full pads on, Kendrick Bourne hauls in two scores, likely bad news for Jalen Hurd

Aug 17, 2020 at 12:46 PM--

No preseason games. No scrimmages with the Denver Broncos or any other NFL team. These practices are the only opportunities for Kyle Shanahan and his coaching staff to conduct on-field evaluations of the San Francisco 49ers roster before the start of the season.

The 49ers on Monday held their third practice and first padded practice of training camp.

"If you aren't excited for the first day of pads, what are you playing the game for?" defensive tackle D.J. Jones told reporters on Sunday. "Yes, I'll get my sleep tonight, but I'll be tossing and turning thinking about it."

The 49ers got some bad news on Sunday. The team fears that wide receiver Jalen Hurd, who missed his rookie season due to a back injury, suffered a torn ACL. The second-year player underwent an MRI on Monday.

Shanahan didn't sound too optimistic after practice, saying that he expects the MRI to reveal an ACL injury.

"I really felt bad for the guy, but he'll be back next year," Shanahan told reporters.

If anyone had any doubts about the New York Jets potentially drafting quarterback Zach Wilson, those doubts might have been erased on Monday. Head coach Robert Saleh and company officially declared that Sam Darnold isn't the future in New York, trading the former No. 3 overall pick to the Carolina Panthers for three draft picks, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper expanded his latest mock draft to two rounds, and it features the San Francisco 49ers adding prospects on both sides of the football. The team traded from No. 12 overall to the No. 3 slot on March 26. The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to select Trevor Lawrence with the top selection, and the New York Jets are projected to add Zach Wilson at No. 2 overall. That's exactly what Kiper has the two teams doing within his mock draft, leaving San Francisco with its choice of quarterbacks in Mac Jones, Justin Fields, and Trey Lance. Kiper has the

My case for the 49ers to draft Justin Fields

When the San Francisco 49ers were drafting at No. 12, there was a lot of speculation about which quarterback might fall and who that might be. The only quarterback who seemed to have a chance to fall to twelve was Mac Jones. However, the 49ers aren't selecting at twelve anymore because they took a huge swing and traded three first rounds picks to move up to pick at No. 3. This means there will likely be three of the consensus top-five quarterback prospects still on the board. This is my case for Justin Fields. Fields is a unique specimen at the quarterback position. Everyone on Twitter wants to pigeonhole Fields into a "type" of quarterback and what he could become in Shanahan's offense. Some say he's a runner who can also throw. Others say he's a slow

Mock Draft Roundup: The Mac Jones-to-49ers Chatter is Deafening

The 2021 NFL Draft is a three-day event from April 29th to May 1st that will be hosted in Cleveland, Ohio. A select number of draft prospects will be invited to Cleveland to walk across the stage and shake hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL Draft will also feature draft prospects participating remotely across the country. Last month, the 49ers arguably made their most aggressive move since trading Joe Montana, as they gave up multiple picks to jump from No. 12 to No. 3 in this year's NFL Draft. The first Mock Draft Roundup featured primarily defensive players but NFL pundits have now shifted their 49ers mock drafts to the quarterback position.
