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

Quick Takeaways

Let's start with the quarterbacks. Trey Lance earned an overall grade of 55.3 during his 16 snaps before suffering a season-ending broken ankle. Jimmy Garoppolo replaced the second-year quarterback, completing 13 of 21 pass attempts for 154 yards and a touchdown, on his way to an overall grade of 66.5. He also had a rushing touchdown. Garoppolo will be the 49ers' starting quarterback for the remainder of the season.

Defensive end Nick Bosa earned the game's highest overall grade thanks partly to his seven pressures, two sacks, three hits, and two hurries. In addition, Bosa earned an impressive pass-rushing grade of 90.2 in the game.

Defensive end Charles Omenihu earned the second-highest defensive grade in the game. He finished with three pressures, two hits, and a hurry.

Talanoa Hufanga, the highest-graded player in the Week 1 contest between the 49ers and Chicago Bears, was also among the top defenders against the Seahawks. The second-year safety is putting together an impressive 2022 campaign. His 90.7 defensive grade ranks second among all NFL safeties (Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick, 90.8) through two games this season.

Guard Aaron Banks was the 49ers' fourth-highest graded offensive player in Week 1. This past weekend, he took the top spot. He allowed just one pressure, and his 81.8 pass-blocking grade was the best in the game for either team.

Tackle Trent Williams always seems to find himself among the highest-graded 49ers players, and this past weekend was no different. His run-blocking grade of 72.4 was the best among the Niners' offensive linemen.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel had 97 all-purpose yards in the game. Fifty-three came on the ground while 44 came through the air. Samuel hauled in all five of his targets.

For the second consecutive week, center Jake Brendel and fullback Kyle Juszczyk find themselves among the bottom three graded offensive players. Once again, rookie defensive end Drake Jackson was among the 49ers' lowest graded defenders.

Pro Football Focus has been going through its annual position rankings. Trent Williams came in as the NFL's best tackle, which is probably a shock to no one. The San Francisco 49ers' second-year quarterback, Brock Purdy, came in at No. 23 within his position group. A late-season stretch of promising play got Spencer Burford into the ranking of offensive guards. He came in at No. 32. Several other 49ers have appeared throughout the rankings. The team is represented in the running back, tight end,

PFF: 49ers' elite roster is reason for optimism despite "up in the air" QB situation

Trevor Sikkema of Pro Football Focus went through all 32 NFL teams and picked a reason for optimism for each heading into the 2023 season. For example, last season's five-win Denver Broncos got a new Super Bowl-winning head coach in Sean Payton. Kenny Pickett could be ready for a second-year leap with the Pittsburgh Steelers (Hopefully, not in Week 1, though). What's the reason for optimism for the San Francisco 49ers? Sikkema admits that picking just one reason is challenging, so he went with the team's elite roster. San Francisco has stockpiled talented playmakers at almost every level. "Yes, their quarterback situation is still up in the air," wrote Sikkema. "But

Everyone says it, so it must be true. The San Francisco 49ers have a loaded roster. Stacked. Deep. Super-Bowl caliber. However you choose to describe it, we can all agree that the roster is very good. They have Pro Bowlers all over the field. But there are some spots that will be filled by young players in 2023. And these young men will be asked to step up this season, in order for the 49ers to have the chance to win the Super Bowl. Here are five young players who need to come up big in 2023: 1. Drake Jackson, Edge Rusher The 49ers built their defense in 2019 around a dominant pass rush. That season, they had a player opposite of Nick Bosa (Dee Ford) who provided a lot of pressure off the edge. Since then, however, they have been unable to

Two 49ers players listed among Next Gen Stats' top disruptors of 2022

Nick Bosa was a monster in 2022. He'll probably be a monster again in 2023. The San Francisco 49ers pass rusher is the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year after leading the NFL with 18.5 sacks and frustrating so many opposing quarterbacks. It's no surprise to see Bosa on Next Gen Stats' list of the top 10 disruptors of 2022. The defensive end comes in at No. 2 in the ranking, with only Micah Parsons of the Dallas Cowboys ahead of him. After such an impressive campaign, why isn't Bosa listed in the top spot? "Well, it was a narrow miss," writer Nick Shook admits. "Bosa's totals are right up there with the top player on this
