C.J. Beathard, Kendrick Bourne among PFF’s highest-graded 49ers players vs. Seahawks

Jan 4, 2021 at 6:13 AM--


Quarterback C.J. Beathard had a good game on Sunday, according to Pro Football Focus. His 81.3 overall grade from the analytics site was the best among San Francisco 49ers players. Beathard finished the game completing 25-of-37 passes for 273 yards with a touchdown and a passer rating of 98.1.

On top of the insurmountable number of injuries the team endured this past season, the 49ers spent the last month in Arizona after Santa Clara County COVID-19 restrictions banned contact sports.

"Hopefully, we don't ever have to do this again, first off," Beathard said after the game, ready to finally get home. "But, there were some good times, some good memories here with the guys when you're all kind of bunked up in the same hotel you get to see them in passing a little bit. We weren't allowed to really hang out or whatever. So that kind of stunk, but overall, you learn from it, and you get better from the situation you're put in."

The second-highest graded 49ers player was wide receiver Kendrick Bourne, who hauled in five receptions for 76 yards against Seattle. Bourne was the 10th-highest-graded receiver in the NFL from Week 10, and Beathard owned a passer rating of 118.8 when targeting him.

On defense, cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon was the 49ers' highest-graded player. He allowed just two receptions on six targets during 42 coverage snaps. One of them, however, was a touchdown.

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

PFF names QB among three 49ers training camp battles to watch

It's almost too easy to name the quarterback competition among the upcoming San Francisco 49ers training camp battles to watch. With players set to report to the team's facilities in Santa Clara next week, a lot of eyes will be focused on observing the progress of the No. 3 overall pick — quarterback Trey Lance. Should it be among the most intriguing competitions, though? San Francisco's brass has repeatedly stated that Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starter come Week 1. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in his veteran quarterback. His availability, not his ability, has always been the concern. That doesn't mean the rookie won't try to prove himself a quick study and unseat Garoppolo. "I definitely see it as Jimmy's the

Fred Warner was overwhelmed by over 200 text messages and calls from friends and colleagues on Wednesday when news broke that the San Francisco 49ers were signing him to a massive five-year extension, making him the highest-paid linebacker in the NFL. The newfound riches won't change his attitude, though. Instead, Warner will continue working to earn the respect of his peers and do whatever he can to contribute to the team goal of winning a championship. "My goals and aspirations are always going to be set to the highest standard, higher than anybody else can put on me," Warner told reporters on Thursday. "And that holds true to the season, even before this contract was set and done. My (personal) goals and my goals for this team, they don't change. So that's what's exciting,

Pro Football Focus published several articles with some telling information on the analytics site's perception of the San Francisco 49ers in 2021. Let's quickly run through each of the topics. Three Players to Build Around Analyst Ben Linsey named three players to build around for each NFL team as it prepares for the 2021 season. They were tight end George Kittle, rookie quarterback Trey Lance, and third-year pass rusher Nick Bosa for the Niners. Omitted from the list is linebacker Fred Warner. Linsey admits that was a difficult choice. The decision came down to Bosa versus Warner, and the analyst couldn't ignore the



PFF lists 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo at No. 22 in recent QB ranking

Bruce Gradkowski of Pro Football Focus went through the exercise of ranking each of the 32 projected NFL starting quarterbacks ahead of the 2021 season. The two starting quarterbacks from Super Bowl LV — Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Tom Brady of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — came in at Nos. 1 and 2. You have to scroll all the way down to No. 22 to find the San Francisco 49ers' projected Week 1 starter — Jimmy Garoppolo. Much of that has to do with the veteran quarterback's track record regarding injuries rather than his ability to win football games. Garoppolo, after all, is 24-9 (including playoffs) as a starter since
