Sep 27, 2021 at 9:22 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers fell to 2-1 after suffering their first loss of the season, a 30-28 defeat at home against the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

Today, Pro Football Focus released its grades from the game. Which Niners played well, and who has more work to do?

Below are Pro Football Focus' five highest-graded 49ers players on offense against the Packers.

Below are the three lowest-graded 49ers players on defense.

  • K'Waun Williams, CB, 40.3, 6 snaps
  • Deommodore Lenoir, CB, 43.7, 45 snaps
  • Arden Key, DE, 46.1, 11 snaps

Quick Takeaways

Jimmy Garoppolo was among the two lowest-graded offensive players. The 49ers quarterback had some big plays but also produced some costly mistakes. He was sacked four times, threw an interception, and had that costly fourth-quarter fumble. It was about as up-and-down of a performance as Garoppolo has had.

Tight end George Kittle was among the three highest-graded offensive players for the second time this season, ranking as the highest-graded player on offense against the Packers.

Trent Williams hasn't earned an overall grade of lower than 81.8 this season, showing that he remains one of the best tackles in the game. The veteran offensive lineman's 93.2 overall grade for this season is the highest of his career.

Tackle Mike McGlinchey has seen a steady improvement since his shaky start in Week 1. That includes pass-blocking grades of 73.7 and 71.5 in the last two games.

Norman was the team's highest-graded player. However, he left the game early due to an injury. It was a costly loss for the defense, which struggled to stop Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the end.

Defensive lineman Arik Armstead is quietly having a fantastic season. His 84.6 overall grade is closer to his 2019 production, and his pass-rushing grade of 86.8 this season is a career-high.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined the I Am Athlete podcast and was asked about the process leading to the team selecting quarterback Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall draft pick last year. There was a lot of speculation surrounding who the 49ers were looking to draft after trading up from the No. 12 spot. Many felt Shanahan had targeted quarterback Mac Jones, while many fans scoffed at the idea. Jones was a target—along with Lance. "We did the trade so early that it made me feel good about it because I knew before we did it how I felt about the quarterbacks," Shanahan said,
