Samson Ebukam has studied 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa, hopes to steal a move or two

Mar 23, 2021 at 9:44 AM--


New San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Samson Ebukam describes his game as "aggressive" and "relentless." That fits in well with a defensive front that prides itself on frustrating opposing offenses. One of those aggressive defenders is third-year pass rusher Nick Bosa, who missed most of last season due to an ACL injury.

During a recent podcast interview, Keiana Martin of 49ers.com asked Ebukam to identify which new teammate he is most looking forward to working with.

"Bosa, for sure," Ebukam responded. "I've been watching him on film and am like, 'This is a technician. Let me see if I can steal one or two of his moves just to get to the quarterback faster.'"

Bosa only has one full NFL season under his belt but has already garnered the respect of a more experienced player like Ebukam.

Martin asked Ebukam to describe to fans what the 49ers are getting in him as a defender.

"I'm just a dude that just loves football," he said. "I want to show exactly what I've got because I didn't really get to showcase everything that I had (while) with the Rams. Right here, I feel like there's definitely a better opportunity for me to showcase that."

San Francisco signed Ebukam to a two-year, $12 million deal. The 25-year-old had 150 tackles, 14 sacks, and one interception in four seasons with the Rams, per Pro Football Reference.

Nick Bosa hopes to see 49ers fans return to Levi's Stadium, has advice for Trey Lance

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he hopes to see stadiums across the league filled with fans once again. Last season, there were no or limited fans in venues due to the pandemic. For players, the strangeness of playing in empty stadiums could be a thing of the past. Defensive end Nick Bosa only got to play one game at Levi's Stadium last season before suffering a season-ending knee injury during Week 2. He caught up with 49ers team reporter Keiana Martin and shared that he hopes to see fans again in 2021. "It would mean a lot, really," Bosa said during a virtual one-on-one. "I only got one game at home without the fans, and it was really weird. I love to look back at the film and TV



Former 49ers GM believes 5th-round pick Talanoa Hufanga was a steal

When Talanoa Hufanga spoke with reporters last week, shortly after being drafted by the San Francisco 49ers, he came off as incredibly likable. The former USC safety was so grateful to be headed to the NFL. "This is such a blessing," he said. "Truly, I thank God for this opportunity." Hufanga's family comes from humble beginnings, so making it to the NFL means a lot. "It's just a blessing. My family has been through a lot," he continued. "My dad grew up on an island where he grew up with dirt floors. When you make that transition, and I got to see where he grew up and see what it was like, you're grateful for these opportunities and how we can live our life. How I can better our lifestyle as well. That's what drives me." Scot McCloughan



49ers climb NFL.com power rankings following draft, still sit behind two NFC West teams

Power rankings in May don't mean a lot, especially when you throw in figuring out how an unproven crop of rookies will impact a team's future success. "The NFL draft and the Power Rankings don't mix," wrote NFL.com contributor Dan Hanzus. That didn't stop him from trying. Hanzus released his latest power rankings, his first since a post-free-agency version in March, and has the San Francisco 49ers jumping up three spots to No. 9. The Niners' draft features the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance of North Dakota State. The team also added two offensive linemen in Aaron Banks and Jaylon Moore, two running backs in Trey Sermon and Elijah



49ers' Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch talk Jimmy Garoppolo, Richard Sherman, and Nick Mullens

Jimmy Garoppolo's days with the San Francisco 49ers may be numbered. He will likely remain with the team through the 2021 season. However, after drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick, it is clear that a change is on the horizon for the Niners. While most felt that might create an awkward situation in the quarterback room, Garoppolo has made the best of it. In fact, Garoppolo was the first 49ers player who reached out to Lance after the incoming rookie heard his name called in Cleveland, Ohio. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke to the media on Friday night after the team was done making its Day 2 picks. They were asked if they spoke with Garoppolo after selecting Lance. Obviously, the quarterback knew the
