Why the 49ers did not select USC’s Dwayne Jarrett

Apr 28, 2007 at 6:40 PM--


According to Matt Maiocco's Draft Blog, the 49ers do not seem to be as high on USC WR Dwayne Jarrett as most Trojan fans. The 49ers could have selected Jarrett with their second round pick but instead decided to trade it (along with a fouth rounder) to the Colts for their 2008 first round pick.

From Matt Maiocco's blog:
The 49ers -- like so many other teams -- were convinced that Jarrett just doesn't have the speed to create separation against NFL cornerbacks.

Nolan said "We're still looking, I believe there are still some good players on the board at that position, as well as some others."

The San Francisco 49ers' revenge tour didn't start off as planned. The Arizona Cardinals went into Levi's Stadium and knocked off the defending NFC champions by a score of 24-20. The 49ers were the only NFC West team to lose during Week 1, dropping them to last place within the division. San Francisco entered Sunday's game without wide receivers Deebo Samuel and rookie Brandon Aiyuk. Tight end George Kittle suffered a knee sprain and wide receiver Richie James left the game with a hamstring injury. The banged-up offense will try to lick its

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle didn't make the trip to MetLife Stadium with his teammates for this past weekend's game against the New York Jets. He arrived at The Greenbrier in West Virginia — where the team is staying and practicing this week between its two East Coast games — late on Sunday night. Kittle did watch the Week 2 action, though. Well, part of it, at least. At one point, once the injuries started mounting, Kittle had to stop. "I was actually doing some rehabbing when I was watching the game," Kittle shared with reporters on Thursday. "I watched the first quarter, and then I saw two injuries, and then I went outside and did my workout." Those injuries were to defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas. Both

Mohamed Sanu Is Not the Answer for the 49ers, but He Is Part of the Sanu-tion

Rejoice! The 49ers have finally signed a veteran receiver, who actually has been a consistent pass-catching threat throughout his career. None of the other receivers the team has recently signed - Tavon Austin, J.J. Nelson, and Kevin White - has the ability to fill that Emmanuel Sanders role. Mohamed Sanu, on the other hand, does. Let me start off by explaining the title of this article. By no means is this a jab at Sanu. What I am trying to say is that he won't come in and single-handedly cure the team's receiver woes. Simply put, he is just not on the level as some of the league's other receivers who could come in and completely change the complexion of the passing game. The types of receivers like Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Michael Thomas, DaVante Adams, etc. are few and far
