When talking about NFL Draft prospects for the 2022 NFL Draft, there isn't a hotter name for the San Francisco 49ers than North Dakota State wide receiver Christian Watson, who played together with rookie quarterback Trey Lance for three years in college.

According to Jordan Elliott, Watson has met with the 49ers during the draft process this week, which should come as good news for 49ers fans.


Watson's stock has skyrocketed in the early stages of the draft process, with some analysts having tabbed him as the best receiver during the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama, as he showcased good route running and hands to go along with his top-end speed at 6'4, 205 pounds.

With a strong combine, Watson could place himself out of the 49ers draft range, if he hasn't already, but the dream pairing of him and Lance in the NFL could be a possibility.

In the past season, Watson proved himself, catching 43 passes for 800 yards and seven touchdowns, averaging 18.6 yards per catch as the top wide receiver on the depth chart.

With Lance as his quarterback in 2019, Watson caught 34 passes for 732 yards and six touchdowns, averaging 21.5 yards per catch, while solidifying himself as a high-caliber deep-threat receiver.

49ers Notebook: Nick Bosa lobbies for 49ers to keep Chase Young; Kyle Juszczyk addresses his future; Has anyone on the team watched the Super Bowl yet?

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's

Daniel Jeremiah has 49ers addressing O-line in latest mock draft

The San Francisco 49ers have some weak points along the offensive line. It's tough to dispute that. Three of the team's starters—Jake Brendel, Colton McKivitz, and Aaron Banks—received overall Pro Football Focus grades under 70.0. Clearly, this is an area that could use improvement during the offseason. NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah proposes just that in his latest mock draft, predicting the 49ers will select offensive lineman Graham Barton out of Duke with the No. 31 overall pick. "A left tackle at Duke, Barton would slide inside to guard and has the athleticism to do all that is required in Kyle Shanahan's

Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw are arguably the best linebacker duo in the NFL, serving as the heart of the San Francisco 49ers defense while sharing a strong bond. Therefore, it's no surprise that Warner felt deeply for his teammate and friend when Greenlaw suffered a torn Achilles in the second quarter of Super Bowl 58 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him. This hurts to watch so much. Via

Klint Kubiak commends Kyle Shanahan after departing 49ers for Saints

By David Bonilla
Feb 15

Klint Kubiak is among several assistant coaches departing the San Francisco 49ers for opportunities elsewhere. He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak
