Fred Warner, Laken Tomlinson among PFF’s highest-graded players from 49ers-Bills

Dec 8, 2020 at 8:18 AM--


The playoffs are slipping away, the team will probably have to play in Arizona longer than expected, and there is no definitive word on whether or not help is on the way.

Kyle Shanahan's San Francisco 49ers have endured a lot this season and are left with a 5-7 record following Monday night's loss to the Buffalo Bills. The "home team" Niners actually entered the game as slight favorites but the Bills dominated in their 34-24 victory at State Farm Stadium.

Pro Football Focus released its player grades from the matchup. Understandably, Bills quarterback Josh Allen was the game's highest-graded (91.0) player. He completed 80 percent of his passes for 375 yards and four touchdowns against the 49ers defense.

The highest-graded player on that defense was linebacker Fred Warner, credited with three tackles, a quarterback hit, and a fumble recovery.

Guard Laken Tomlinson, however, earned the highest grade among 49ers players. He allowed no pressures in his 40 pass-blocking snaps.

Below were the five highest-graded 49ers players on offense against the Bills.

Fred Warner blew away the 49ers during his pre-draft visit, says Adam Peters

Linebacker Fred Warner was a pleasant surprise for San Francisco 49ers fans coming out of the 2018 draft. He immediately showed flashes of what he could be during his rookie campaign, leading the defense in tackles not only then but in each of his three NFL seasons. After spending some time with Warner, the 49ers immediately knew that he might be someone special. They were already impressed with his on-field play at BYU. What sealed the deal in their minds was getting to know the person. Once again, there won't be pre-draft visits this year. As was the case last year, all interviews will be conducted virtually over Zoom or FaceTime. It's unfortunate because those 30 allotted visits can be a great tool in evaluating an incoming rookie. Of course, given the current

According to Pro Football Reference, Fred Warner registered a team-leading and career-high 125 tackles, including five for a loss, in 2020. He added a sack, six passes defensed, two interceptions, and a forced fumble. It was enough to finally earn the San Francisco 49ers linebacker his overdue Pro Bowl and All-Pro nods. Warner has a message for fans and analysts who were impressed by the linebacker's exceptional play — "Stay tuned." Maybe we haven't seen anything yet from the young defensive star.

49ers add WR DeVonta Smith in latest PFF mock draft

If the San Francisco 49ers don't make a move for a quarterback in this year's draft, many can envision the team going after a cornerback or adding another defensive end. Several of San Francisco's top cornerbacks are scheduled to become free agents. It's a list that includes Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett, and K'Waun Williams. The 49ers didn't have their top two pass rushers — Nick Bosa or Dee Ford — for most of last season. Bosa is rehabbing an ACL injury, while the status of Ford's back and neck injuries remains unclear. If Ford isn't healthy by April 1, San Francisco will be on the hook for a significant portion of his 2021 salary — $11.6 million — regardless of whether he is on the roster. Rather than target one of these positions,



PFF predicts landing spots for 49ers' Trent Williams and Richard Sherman

Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus provided updated landing spots for the top 50 impending free agents. You might remember the analytics site predicting in January that offensive tackle Trent Williams would return to the San Francisco 49ers on a four-year, $80 million deal with $62.5 million in guarantees. Nothing has changed since then. That remains exactly what Treash predicts for Williams, who is listed as Pro Football Focus' fifth-highest ranked impending free agent. "San Francisco is going to have to work some magic this offseason," explains Treash. "They are projected to have just around $13.5 million in cap space available, but star tackle Trent Williams
