49ers select WR Dante Pettis in 2nd round

Member Milestone: This is post number 600 for JaggedJ.
He was projected as a 3rd/4th rounder. That's the only thing I don't understand. Why move up for a guy that had a good chance of being there at 59?

Trust Kyle to get the best out of him, just not sure the trade was necessary.

Pettis (6-0, 186) was productive as a wide receiver during his four seasons at Washington, totaling 163 catches for 2,256 yards and 24 touchdowns. As a junior in 2016, Pettis caught 53 passes for 822 yards and 15 touchdowns, then followed up that performance with 63 catches for 761 yards and seven touchdowns as a senior. Pettis also shined as a return specialist, returning 90 punts for 1,274 yards (14.2 average) with an NCAA-record nine total touchdowns in four seasons.
"Over his final three years at Washington, Pettis returned 8 of his 63 punt return attempts (12.7%) for TDs," tweeted Jeff Deeney of Pro Football Focus. "That's ridiculous."
An ankle injury kept Pettis out of the NFL Scouting Combine as well as his school's Pro Day on March 10, but on April 2 he held his own Pro Day workout, where he ran a 4.48-second 49-yard dash and posted a 36-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot-5-inch broad jump, and 11 bench press reps at 225 pounds.

Don't dislike the player. Just thought outside wo more of a need.
I'm excited about Pettis!

But trading up for him? He would've been there late in the second. I hope we didn't give up too much for the major reach...

He's not a slot WR. He CAN play there but he's an outside WR. LOVE the pick
I was hoping Kirk from A&M would have been the pick at that point but I'll trust the FO.
9 career punt return TD's. NCAA record

22 TD's his last 2 years.

Dudes a stud and a game changer.

Yep


Garcon
Goodwin
Pettis
Taylor
Bourne

That's an impressive group.
What did we give up?
This draft has Trent Baalke written all over it. A wide receiver "who can return puntsh." He did this about 5 times.

Meanwhile, Anthony Miller goes to the Bears and they officially win the draft.

So what did we give up? im not near a tv
Big time reach much better players were on the board. Smdh
he better be devin hester 2.0 when returning kicks
