49ers Once Again Get Something for Nothing by Trading 1st Round Pick

The San Francisco 49ers have traded down one pick in the first round for the second time in four years. This time the 49ers traded the No. 13 overall pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for pick No. 14 and a fourth round pick (No. 117).

It is the right move to make regardless of the selection made at No. 14. The 49ers are able to take whoever they would have at No. 13 by trading down one spot while making sure the Bucs selection is not the player.

This is similar to what they did in 2017 when they traded with the Chicago Bears. They moved from No. 2 to No. 3 that year and ended up taking defensive lineman Solomon Thomas. While Thomas hasn't developed into the type of player you would expect from No. 3, the trade was absolutely the correct move at the time.

The 49ers stayed at No. 14 and selected defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw out of the University of South Carolina. The selection provides a replacement for the traded DeForest Buckner. The 49ers are no doubt hoping Kinlaw can pan out better than Thomas has to this point.

The 49ers once again have a fearsome foursome on the defensive line adding Kinlaw to Dee Ford, Nick Bosa and Arik Armstead.

Some fans are no doubt disappointed the 49ers traded down with wide receiver prospects CeeDee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy still available. I'm not against the pick of Kinlaw but do admit I would have preferred the selection of Jeudy.

Luckily, the 49ers still have another first round pick to be made later as of publication of this article. I'm not convinced the 49ers are targeting a receiver with the pick, however.

The 49ers' Defense is Becoming Elite Again: 5 Observations about Saints-49ers

By JD Salazar
Nov 28

This 2022 iteration of the 49ers is endlessly fascinating to watch. One of the best teams in football one week, getting humiliated the next. Back to the future, forward with the past. But as turbulent and ramshackle as it's been, the 49ers are morphing into a team ready to dominate in the playoffs, just as head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have always believed. Here are 5 observations from yesterday's win over the Saints. 1. The Scoreless Streak Extends to 4… In the second half of the past 4 games, the 49ers haven't allowed a point. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. The Rams, Chargers, Cardinals, and now Saints have all failed to crack the scoreboard once after halftime. While only this last contest has been a pure shutout, that mark remains



'Third and Jauan': 49ers WR Jennings steps up again in the clutch during win over Saints

By Kirk Larrabee

49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings has had a quieter year statistically than some may have expected, considering where he was at the end of the 2021 season. But just as he did in 2021, Jennings stepped up in the clutch Sunday, giving the 49ers multiple huge plays while helping them secure a 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. After catching 16 passes for 212 yards and three touchdowns over the final five games of the 2021 regular season, Jennings entered this weekend with 30 catches for 220 yards and zero touchdowns for 2022. But on Sunday he caught six passes for 49 yards while hauling in the game's only touchdown. Jennings also made a key third down catch on the game's final drive that helped run out the clock and seal the win. Jennings' clutch performance on



With Elijah Mitchell out, 49ers RB Jordan Mason will get his chance to shine

Since the beginning of the offseason, San Francisco 49ers running back Jordan Mason has made the most of his opportunities, earning praise for his hard-nosed, physical running style that embodied an NFL player. However, due to a variety of circumstances, Mason has yet to see significant NFL action. After Elijah Mitchell suffered a sprained MCL in Week 1, Mason could've seen opportunities behind Jeff Wilson in San Francisco's running back rotation, given his performance in the offseason and style of play. But, the 49ers opted for a different direction, utilizing Wilson as a bell-cow back, significantly decreasing the team's efficiency on the ground, before involving veteran Tevin Coleman, who had a short stint on the active
