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.

2020 was a fairly forgettable season for the 49ers, but there were still three catches along the way that were memorable enough to be included in the NFL's collection of the top 100 catches of the year. The collection was released to the NFL's YouTube account on February 19 and included catches from wide receiver Kendrick Bourne, tight end Jordan Reed, and tight end George Kittle, with Reed and Kittle's catches cracking the top 20. Here's a look at the 49ers catches that made their list. C.J. Beathard and Kendrick Bourne's meaningless-but-still-cool Hail Mary completion (ranked 68th overall) This play came as time expired in the 49ers' 41-33 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on December 20.

A fan recently told Kendrick Bourne via the receiver's Twitch stream to tell San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch to trade quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Bourne didn't seem to appreciate the comment and defended his quarterback. "Jimmy Garoppolo gonna stay a Niner, bro," Bourne responded to the fan. "Jimmy Garoppolo is staying a Niner, bro, and he gonna start, and he gonna ball." @OurSF49ers captured Bourne's comments.

PFF identifies Solomon Thomas as the 49ers' biggest draft mistake over the past 5 years

The San Francisco 49ers could have gone in several other directions in 2017 with the first selection of the John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan era. They could have selected a franchise quarterback in a draft that included both Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson. Last weekend, Lynch spoke of the decision to pass on Mahomes, who he would face three years later in the Super Bowl. "That will probably haunt me for a while because I remember going to his Pro Day," Lynch said. "We were in a different place as an organization, and we had a different plan for quarterback because we really weren't -- I remember going to his pro day doing my job but really as kind of a smokescreen



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,
