Round 6, Pick 38: 49ers select Michigan State WR Aaron Burbridge

Apr 30, 2016 at 2:19 PM--


With the 38th pick in the sixth round (213th overall), the San Francisco 49ers selected Michigan State WR Aaron Burbridge.

During his senior year, Burbridge had 1,258 yards on 85 receptions and seven touchdowns. Over his college career, he had 2,174 yards on 165 receptions for a 13.2 yards-per-reception average and 10 touchdowns.



NFL.com projected that Burbridge would be selected in rounds 4 or 5 of the NFL Draft.

Analysis


Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Burbridge to Jason Avant, had the following to say in his scouting report:

Outside receiver with good height and weight but lacking the deep speed to beat NFL cornerbacks down the field. Burbridge has enough short-area quickness to be an effective target against zone coverage, but could have problems against tight, press­ man. A move inside as a big slot receiver could be in his best interest. His Senior Bowl week and NFL Scouting Combine 40 time will be huge for his draft positioning.

DraftInsider.net had the following to say about Burbridge in their scouting report:

Burbridge turned in a breakout campaign last season and possesses enough skill to line up as a 5th receiver at the next level.

Pro Football Focus had the following to say about Burbridge in their scouting report:

Burbridge started 2015 off with a bang, but faded in his final five games at Michigan State. The team who drafts him will be getting a player who has never shown a lot of consistency, but has flashed, sometimes in big moments. That matchup with Jourdan Lewis was one of the most interesting individual battles of the past year, but Burbridge's full body of work isn't consistent enough to live up to that.

49ers' Nick Bosa reached out to Washington's Chase Young, offered encouragement

By Rohan Chakravarthi
Nov 19

The Washington Football Team faced some crushing news earlier this week after further tests confirmed that defensive end Chase Young tore his ACL in Washington's win over Tampa Bay last weekend. Young, who was selected No. 2 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, has had a relatively quiet sophomore season, with just 1.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in nine games this year, after an impressive rookie season, where he accumulated 7.5 sacks to go along with four forced fumbles en route to winning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. With the ACL tear confirmed, Young is expected to miss the rest of the 2021 NFL season and will rehab for 2022, where the Washington Football Team will look to improve after a disappointing 3-6 start in 2021.
