Quick Takeaways

Talanoa Hufanga wasn't just the 49ers' highest-graded player; he was the game's highest-graded player. The safety intercepted Bears quarterback Justin Fields and registered a six-yard return. The interception was the first of his career. Hufanga finished with a career-high 11 tackles and a pass defensed to go with the pick.

The two anchors along the 49ers' offensive line—tackles Trent Williams and Mike McGlinchey—earned the highest offensive grades. Williams allowed three pressures and was responsible for a penalty. McGlinchey allowed two pressures and gave up a sack.

"We made too many mistakes," McGlinchey said after the game. "First and foremost, with me in the first half. I gave up a stupid sack, knocked us out of field-goal range, and that's points right there."

Jauan Jennings ended up being the 49ers' highest-graded receiver, earning a receiving grade of 72.4 off his four catches for 62 yards on six targets.

Deebo Samuel graded among the bottom when it comes to Trey Lance's targets. He hauled in just two of his eight targets for 14 yards and was credited with two drops by Pro Football Focus. Samuel also had a fumble for a loss, contributing to his team-low rushing grade (50.5).

As for Lance, the second-year quarterback just missed the bottom three on offense, earning the unit's fourth-lowest overall grade (53.7). He finished the game 13-of-28 for 164 yards, an interception, and a passer rating of 50.3. Lance was under pressure 13 times and sacked twice.

Where the 49ers landed in PFF's latest power ranking

By David Bonilla
Apr 22

While it would be foolish to declare that the San Francisco 49ers lack any deficiencies, the team remains one of the most talented rosters in the NFL. That alone is enough to place them high on media power rankings. The truth is, power rankings mean very little at this stage in the offseason. Yes, free agency has come and gone, but NFL rosters are about to undergo further changes this week, with the 2024 NFL Draft slated for Thursday. Pro Football Focus' Amelia Probst posted a power ranking based on the analytics site's data on each roster and the offseason roster moves made so far. The San Francisco 49ers came in at No. 2, behind only the Kansas City

Analyst Dane Brugler of The Athletic grades former Iowa State cornerback T.J. Tampa as a second or third-round draft pick and ranks him 55th overall on his big board. Pro Football Focus, however, holds a higher opinion of the young defensive back. In his latest mock draft, the site's lead analyst, Sam Monson, has the San Francisco 49ers selecting Tampa with the No. 31 overall pick. "T.J. Tampa fits the prototype of a 49ers cornerback," Monson explains. "He has had consecutive seasons of very impressive play and allowed just 240 yards on 49 targets last season. The team doesn't necessarily need him to make an immediate impact, but they could

Interestingly, the mock draft sees the team adding two legacy players. But before delving into that, let's examine the first three selections. Sikkema has the 49ers shoring up their offensive line at pick No. 31 with the selection of former Arizona offensive tackle Jordan Morgan. Morgan allowed 14 pressures and two sacks in his 477 pass-blocking snaps at left tackle in 2023. He earned an impressive pass-blocking grade of 87.3 and an overall grade of

The upcoming NFL Draft holds special significance for the San Francisco 49ers, with ties to several familiar faces from the team's past. A handful of legacy players hope to make their mark, possibly receiving a life-changing call from 49ers general manager John Lynch. Brenden Rice, son of Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice, is one such player. The former USC wideout is projected to be a fourth-round draft pick and had the opportunity to meet with the 49ers at the NFL Scouting Combine. When asked about the possibility of joining his father's former team, Brenden confidently expressed, "Honestly, I just
