Gun to head if you could trade back into 2nd and it's between Aiyuk and Bryce Hall who do you take?

Aiyuk. I think between sherm/Mosley/spoon we have 3 starting CBs. Aiyuk will get on the field quickly and they can save cash by not bringing back sanders.

Don't disagree, but I'm pretty concerned about the CB future. Sherman is not getting any younger and Witherspoon had a nice rookie year, horrendous 2nd year, started off year 3 great then looked pretty poor coming back so now feel like they No longer can just pencil him as a future starter once Sherman is gone. Love Moseley though. Should be interesting to see what they do

Think this guys my first (realistic) draft crush this year. If we resign Ward I (as of now) want Aiyuk in a trade back and then OL/DB in either order with our next two picks

Like the fact that he's a legit returner as well, James is terrifying back there

Had no clue he started there. Used to have our swim championship out there when the niners would hold TC there.

I'm admittedly not a huge Aiyuk fan. Not that I think he's a bad player, I just don't think he brings us another dimension on offense with Deebo already here. Unlike Deebo, Aiyuk is not a contested catch monster. Would I be bothered that much if we took him? Well, no. I just have others I prefer at this point. Best case scenario for Aiyuk is probably being the next Stephon Diggs without the circus catch ability. As mentioned by SDN earlier in this thread though, the floor could be something like Quinton Patton.

His story on his recruitment was he was set on ASU, then the coach Todd Graham got fired. Alabama came knocking but he decided to stick with ASU. Alabama wanted him to play cornerback.

Wow I'm a little surprised. I see him as a more physical Emmanuel Sanders and an immediate PR/KR upgrade with legit #1 WR upside. I think he would absolutely dominate in Shanahan's system. He is possibly the best YAC WR in this draft.

Yes, he was a YAC king at the college level and no doubt he would be a threat on KR/PR. But then again, KJ Hamler does all that too, though is obviously much smaller. Neither provides a size mismatch overall. That said, I don't question that he could have success in our system.

Again, I think he has starter potential, he's just not my favorite WR in this class. But who knows? Maybe he pulls a Reggie Wayne and proves everyone wrong that he's more than just a great #2 type of WR.

PFF brought this up in their profile of him.

"Very inconsistent at the catch point. Caught only three of 14 contested targets in career"

They actually comped him to Cordarelle Patterson. Which I can see, BUT I feel like Aiyuk is a much better overall route-runner.

Also, it looks like Aiyuk's speed/quickness is more productive -- hence why he's the YAC god of this class.

According to Pro Football Focus, Aiyuk, one of the top senior receivers, led all players in the 2020 draft class with an average of 9.9 yards after the catch. A little over half of his total receiving production came after the catch.

He's a good player and he checks a lot of boxes for what KS wants in a WR.

Likens is the OC who also coached a former 49er, Quinton Patton. Likens compared Aiyuk to Patton.

Although Patton didn't work out for the 49ers, a lot of that had to do with his foot injury/injuries that never seemed to fully recover.

Watched Patton in AAF. Somehow his hands got worse.
