    The Good Wide Receiver - The future looks bright as rookies Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd both had good outings. Samuel had the catch of the night, a gorgeous 45-yard catch down the sideline that he went up and snatched away from the defender. Hurd had two scores and showcased his size and toughness. Both players add a lot to this offense, most notably size and aggression. Samuel finished with 2 catches for 61 yards, 1 rush for 14 yards, and drew a 25-yard pass interference penalty. Hurd finished with 3 catches for 31 yards and scored 2 touchdowns. Dre Greenlaw - Greenlaw could start. He looked great against the run, especially when he knifed in and buried the back for a loss. He is good in pass coverage but did bite on a play-action. That will...

    The San Francisco 49ers have spent a chunk of their approximately $67 million in cap space on upgrading a number of key positions in free agency. Kwon Alexander brings big-play ability to the weak side linebacker position while Dee Ford provides the explosiveness off the edge that the 49ers have desperately needed. Other notable signings include veteran receiver Jordan Matthews, speedy running back Tevin Coleman, cornerback Jason Verrett, and linebacker/special teams player David Mayo. There is still a month or so until the NFL Draft on April 25th, so the question begs, who else should the 49ers pursue in free agency?
