    "We only picked Tank Carradine because we loved those old shows with David Carradine in them." "He was the only one who came to interviews without baggy pants hanging down at the knees. That's when we knew we were going to draft him." "We never really talked about the draft until today. We just used Mel Kiper's analysis. Hat's off to Matt Millen for the inside tip."

Arik Armstead says Jimmy Garoppolo criticism unfair, is 'expecting great things' from Trey Lance

The biggest San Francisco 49ers-related storyline heading into the offseason was the quarterback situation. The team looked to transition from its starter of the past four-and-a-half seasons, Jimmy Garoppolo, to second-year quarterback Trey Lance, last year's No. 3 overall pick. Deebo Samuel stole many of the offseason headlines after requesting to be traded. Still, the quarterback situation remains one of the more significant storylines heading into the 2022 season. San Francisco expected to trade Garoppolo in March, before the start of the new league year. However, Garoppolo undergoing offseason shoulder surgery halted all talks with other teams. Now, the market has seemingly dried up, so it will be interesting to see what the 49ers do as training camp nears



PFF's 2020 re-draft has 49ers passing on Javon Kinlaw for cornerback help

Fans like to play "What If," wondering what things might be like had their favorite team opted for a different choice at a pivotal moment. Fans aren't the only ones, though. Take former San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, for instance. His missed interception of a Matthew Stafford pass intended for receiver Van Jefferson in the NFC title game might have sent the Niners back to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "That's a play I should make in my sleep, and I didn't make it," Tartt said after the game. "... I know that was a big play in the game, a big opportunity for me and for the team, and as a player, I just feel like I let my brothers down." Had Tartt made the play, maybe the 49ers win their sixth

The San Francisco 49ers have faced some serious roster turnover with their offensive line, as left guard Laken Tomlinson went to the New York Jets in free agency, while center Alex Mack chose to retire after one season with the organization. In addition, right tackle Mike McGlinchey is coming off a torn quadriceps injury that sidelined him for the second half of the 2021 NFL season, although head coach Kyle Shanahan believes the Notre Dame product should be ready for training camp. Earlier this week, PFF's Mike Renner conducted his offensive line rankings for 2022 with several tiers: Minor or no weaknesses(tier 1), high floor(tier 2), high-end potential(tier 3), at

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance has started to attract serious attention from the media, as many analysts are coming on board with the 22-year-old's potential as he enters his second NFL season. During a recent appearance on NFL Total Access, former Green Bay Packers receiver James Jones continued the trend, going as far as comparing Lance to his former quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. "I believe we're looking at a bonafide superstar [in Lance], like Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers," Jones said. "We had a small sample size of Aaron Rodgers, but all you heard out of the locker room and the people around Aaron was, 'Just wait. You
