NFL.com: 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo among players under the most pressure in 2020

By David Bonilla
Jul 3, 2020

In his first full NFL season as a starter, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw for the fourth-most single-season passing yards in franchise history, put up clutch performances in some regular-season nail-biters, and led the team to a division crown and the No. 1 seed in the NFC on the way to a Super Bowl appearance. That's quite a list of accomplishments. So why is Garoppolo ranked No. 5 on NFL.com's recent list of players under the most pressure in 2020?

San Francisco 49ers special teams coordinator Richard Hightower may have lost one of his unit's aces with the emergence of running back Raheem Mostert on offense, but he's gained an example for the team's younger players. Mostert joined the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2015. He spent time with six teams before landing with the 49ers the next year. Even then, the running back mostly contributed on special teams. That is, after all, where so many NFL players have to prove themselves upon entering the league. Mostert burst onto the scene last season, and the NFL took notice when he rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game.
