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.

Jay Gruden reveals how much Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers were willing to give up for Kirk Cousins

By David Bonilla
Nov 14

Upon being hired as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, Kyle Shanahan planned to be patient and build a roster in preparation for potentially inserting quarterback Kirk Cousins. Cousins was with Washington at the time, but it was a near-certainty that the relationship would eventually end. The 49ers coached rolled with placeholders until that time presented itself. The 49ers have admitted that they looked into potentially trading for Cousins. However, with the situation in Washington speeding toward an eventual divorce, it seemed to make more sense to wait and see what happened. There was also the obstacle of the strained relationship between the Shanahans and Washington. Cousins never ended up in Santa Clara with Shanahan. The free-agent quarterback



Could Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers face a second rebuild this off-season?

By Chris Beno
Nov 15

As the 2021 season reaches the halfway point, one thing is for sure: there is still a lot of football left. Even with the San Francisco 49ers sitting at 3-5, they still (thanks to an underperforming NFC) have a legitimate shot at getting to the playoffs this year. But it's not too early to start thinking about the future. If the season were to end now, head coach Kyle Shanahan would be coming off his fourth losing season in five years. The 49ers would also have over 30 players entering free agency, no first-round draft pick in 2022, and appear to be on the brink of a second rebuild under the current front office. Just for fun, let's begin thinking about what this off-season could look like for the 49ers. How this season wraps up will strongly determine the approach this
