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.

Last week, the San Francisco 49ers announced they had signed head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch to multi-year contract extensions, keeping the team's brain trust together for the foreseeable future. However, Shanahan revealed that the deals had been finalized for a while. "We did it before the Pittsburgh game (Week 1), so I had already celebrated with my family and stuff like that, which is huge," Shanahan told reporters on Wednesday. "I feel very grateful just being a coach anywhere for a long time. I know what that means, and I'm extremely grateful for that, to have that opportunity, and mainly for my family to be somewhere for so long, which is cool." The extensions had nothing to do with the 49ers' 3-0 start to the 2023 season. That's

The San Francisco 49ers defense has racked up eight sacks this season, which puts the unit around the middle of the pack in the NFL. The Detroit Lions and Pittsburgh Steelers lead the league with 13 sacks apiece. Although, the Lions have played one more game than the Steelers as of this article's publish date. Don't mistake the Niners' sack total for a lack of pressure, though. When it comes to flustering opposing quarterbacks, San Francisco's defensive line has been among the best this season. The 49ers entered the offseason knowing they wanted to shore up the interior of the defensive line, finding a stout body to line up next to Arik Armstead. So general manager John Lynch and company went after the best available defensive free agent, paying a significant
