Good day 3 options for the 49ers in 2022 NFL Draft

Apr 30, 2022 at 8:21 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers surprisingly drafted a defensive end, running back, and wide receiver with their first three picks of the draft. This marks the sixth time in the past eight drafts that they selected a defensive lineman with their first draft pick. With six picks in rounds 4-7 expect the 49ers to finally address the secondary and offensive line.

49ers best available players heading into day three:

CB Tariq Woolen (UTSA) : Woolen has the most impressive measurables for a second-round defensive back in recent memory. With his 6'4 frame he can guard any receiver on the field, and to go along with his length is surprising 4.26 40-yard dash speed. He could be the missing piece for the 49ers secondary and would no doubt make an immediate impact. Woolen was a two-year starter but never really flashed any impressive numbers in the stat sheet finishing with just one interception and five pass breakups in his last season.

CB Coby Bryant (Cincinnati) : Bryant played cornerback at Cincinnati opposite of number four overall pick in this years draft, Ahmad Gardner. That being said, he would be named the Jim Thorpe award winner in 2021 for the best defensive back in the country. Bryant relies more on technique than athletic ability and uses his length as an advantage against opposing receivers. Weighing in at 193 lbs and standing 6'1 Bryant is the desired size for a coverage cornerback in the NFL. Although he doesn't run a blazing fast 40 yard dash, 4.54 at the NFL combine, he is a four year starter who has plenty of experience and would make an immediate impact on the 49ers secondary.

C Dohnovan West (Arizona State) : The niners finally get their interior lineman here, and fill a need with Alex Mack on the verge of retirement. West stands at 6'6 and weighs in at 300 pounds. He showed tremendous versatility at ASU while playing 14 games at center, 11 at right guard, and four at left guard. If Mack were to stay, West would still bring his ability to move across the interior of the offensive line and could easily transition to guard if needed. West also comes with a wrestling background, lettering in three years.

LG Marquis Hayes (Oklahoma) : Marquis Hayes out of Oklahoma is a three-year starter and started 36 games at left guard. Hayes has a very high motor and is looking to put in 100% effort in every play he is on the field. If he is there in the fourth round, the 49ers will likely pounce on the opportunity to pick him. He played in one of the most complex and electric offenses in all of the country and can really move for his size. Hayes excels at moving defenders in the run game and has violent and powerful hands that put defenders on their back. Hayes has as much upside as any guard in this draft and for this value, it would be easy to why Kyle Shanahan and company waited until today to select an interior lineman.

Three 49ers, including Christian McCaffrey, day-to-day ahead of Eagles game, per Shanahan

On Monday, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on a conference call with reporters and provided several injury updates following Sunday's 19-12 Divisional Round playoff win over the Dallas Cowboys. The coach mentioned three players. Two were already known, based on post-game information. However, the third is a new development. First, the known injuries. Charles Omenihu suffered an oblique strain that briefly forced the defensive end to exit the game. Shanahan says Omenihu is day-to-day leading to Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Running back Christian McCaffrey revealed that he fought through some bothersome calf

It wasn't supposed to end like this. But in the end, what did you expect? This is who the 49ers are. Not a bad team, no. God, no. If that's what you think after watching an NFFCG collapse, I humbly request you consider this game tomorrow. A week from now. With a bit of distance, tracing the arc of the whole season. That still doesn't change the fact that this game was ugly. It was horrific. No, it was worse - a farce. This was Kyle Shanahan trying to bluff an invading army with a tea party out in the open. There's no blame to be laid at his feet here. Maybe against another army, a team less consistently aggressive and outside of its home turf. It's just not a strategy that works against Nick Sirianni's Eagles. Playoff football is a game of

Every year, we poll 49ers Webzone fans to determine the San Francisco 49ers' most valuable player in the eyes of The Faithful. This season's MVP was probably clear even before the voting started. Although, there was a chance that Christian McCaffrey, the star running back acquired from the Carolina Panthers ahead of the trade deadline, could steal away a significant number of the votes, and he did. Still, defensive end Nick Bosa's dominant 2022 campaign was enough to solidify his lead among 49ers teammates. The star pass rusher earned over 43 percent of the fans from fans. McCaffrey came in second with nearly 29 percent of the votes, while rookie quarterback Brock Purdy earned almost 21 percent. Our fans have chosen an MVP

49ers' Nick Bosa on zero-sack performance: "I did a good part in the win today"

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Divisional round to advance to the NFC Championship Game next weekend, winning in a 19-12 bout after holding their opponent scoreless over the last 11 minutes of the game. However, their win came without a sack from their star defensive end Nick Bosa, who has now gone without a sack in two consecutive weeks for the first time since Weeks 16 and 17 of the 2021 season, playoffs included. Bosa had only gone three games without a sack in the regular season, but has now missed a sack in two consecutive games, including a zero-pressure game against the Seahawks last weekend. But, zero sacks don't mean zero impact, and Bosa believed that his performance was a good one following San Francisco's
