49ers rookie Javon Kinlaw explains why he wishes he could sack Jimmy Garoppolo

Sep 5, 2020 at 10:11 AM--


San Francisco 49ers rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw is looking to be a game-wrecker during his pro career. He is looking forward to frustrating opposing offensive linemen, making running backs feel like they are hitting a brick wall, and making quarterbacks run for their lives.

Kinlaw joined Training Camp Rewind this week, and team reporter Keiana Martin asked the rookie defender which quarterback he is most looking forward to sacking. His answer might surprise you.

"Jimmy, honestly," Kinlaw responded. "My own quarterback."

Now, Kinlaw isn't going to be sacking Jimmy Garoppolo any time soon. They are teammates, after all. So why did Kinlaw name his own team's quarterback?

"Jimmy be talking so much trash out there," Kinlaw explained, "and I like it because quarterbacks don't usually be talking to me like that. But me and Jimmy got this type of relationship going on where every time I see him, or he sees me, we just talk trash to each other. That's just how it goes."

Martin also asked Kinlaw how he envisions looking back on his career when it is over. How does the defensive tackle want that career to be defined?

He answered: "As the best defensive lineman to ever lace them up, honestly. That's just how I see it. I don't see it no other way. That's how I've seen it from the start."

In the meantime, Kinlaw will have to make do with chasing down Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray. The two teams open the season against each other at Levi's Stadium on September 13.

First, it's important to note that San Francisco 49ers rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw doesn't typically provide lengthy answers to questions. It's just not his style. However, he did have a longer-than-usual response on Thursday when asked to identify a teammate who has been most helpful during his transition from the college game to the pros. That player is sixth-year defensive lineman Arik Armstead, who has taken on a mentorship role with the first-year defender. "I've been leaning on Arik a lot," Kinlaw said. "Just love getting some feedback from him. Just love watching film with him, and I've been watching film with him. And him just giving me little keys and little things to help me out, to help my game out a lot. So, I have definitely been leaning on

Kerry Hyder Jr. joined the San Francisco 49ers this offseason just looking to contribute, do whatever was asked of him, and rejoin his former defensive line coach, Kris Kocurek. He's watched as the team lost Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas for the year. Reinforcements like Dee Ford, Ronald Blair, and Jullian Taylor aren't expected to be back until later in the season. Until then, Hyder, and those who remain, will be entrusted to hold down the fort. Another player looking to do the same thing is rookie Javon Kinlaw, who has displayed flashes of his potential while adjusting to life in the NFL. Hyder, now in his seventh season, was asked about his first-year teammate this week, his development, and his future. "He's a hungry player,"
