Sam Acho picks 49ers' Trey Lance as 2nd-year QB to make biggest jump in 2022

Last week, ESPN analyst Rob Ninkovich looked at the 2021 rookie quarterback class and stated he expects Trey Lance to make the "biggest jump" in Year 2. Another ESPN analyst, Sam Acho, agrees with that prediction. Why is Lance the best second-year quarterback, in Acho's opinion? It's because of the weapons around him. The 22-year-old quarterback will have wide receiver Deebo Samuel (assuming the offseason rift can be mended) and tight end George Kittle at his disposal. "Yes, there was a reason Zach Wilson was the second pick overall last year," Acho said. "There's a reason Trey Lance was third, right? Because he's that good as well." More critical for



CBS analyst calls 49ers' situations with Deebo Samuel and Jimmy Garoppolo 'messy' and 'awkward'

In May, former offensive lineman turned broadcaster and analyst Ryan Harris made headlines stating that sources inside the San Francisco 49ers shared doubts about second-year quarterback Trey Lance. He also said that some expected Jimmy Garoppolo to start come Week 1. Harris rejoined CBS Sports HQ to share his thoughts on two big 49ers-related offseason storylines—Deebo Samuel and Garoppolo. Earlier this offseason, Samuel requested to be traded after watching several of his wide receiver peers cash in while the 49ers star waited for his own contract extension. San Francisco had hoped to trade Garoppolo in March. However, the quarterback

Two massive games. Two double-digit 4th quarter leads. Two heart-breaking losses. You can stop right there and fans of the San Francisco 49ers know exactly what you're talking about. Painfully, the franchise that once referred to itself as "Camelot," and became the first NFL team to win five Super Bowls, has experienced some difficult losses. There were three consecutive heartbreaking losses in the Jim Harbaugh days. And now Kyle Shanahan's 49ers have lost two big games, Super Bowl LIV in February 2020, and the NFC Championship Game earlier this year. And we're not even discussing the dark years when the team struggled under the likes of Dennis Erickson, Mike Nolan, Jim Tomsula, and Chip Kelly. Those names make me want to throw up. Whether it's that



Deebo Samuel and 49ers stalemate: Who's the bully?

Even though talks between All-Pro wide receiver Deebo Samuel and the San Francisco 49ers have been slow, the situation appears to be far from over. Per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Samuel hasn't rescinded his trade request with the team. Samuel is entering the last season of his rookie contract. He is a 26-year-old wide receiver with three accrued seasons who will receive $3.99 million in 2022 with a $4.89 million salary-cap hit. What Samuel did in 2022 was phenomenal. As a wide receiver, he had 1,405 yards and six touchdowns from 77 receptions, averaging 18.2 yards per catch. In addition, Samuel had 59 carries for 365 yards and eight touchdowns as a running back, averaging 6.2
