But there is certainly a lot of excitement surrounding Lance's potential within head coach Kyle Shanahan's creative offense. Mel Kiper went with Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts as his choice. Todd McShay went with Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris. Louis Riddick picked Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase.
