Samson Ebukam is entering his second season with the San Francisco 49ers after spending his first four with the Los Angeles Rams. The 27-year-old pass rusher racked up 4.5 sacks last season, recording 3.5 in his final five regular-season games.

When it's man coverage, you don't want Jimmie Ward on you because he's quick, he's physical, and he's really, really fast. He's got great hands, and he knows how to hold without getting holding calls. He's very good at that. "I'm very blessed to be able to go against

Kyle Shanahan: 49ers were 'locked in' on Trey Lance and Mac Jones leading to 2021 draft

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined the I Am Athlete podcast and was asked about the process leading to the team selecting quarterback Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall draft pick last year. There was a lot of speculation surrounding who the 49ers were looking to draft after trading up from the No. 12 spot. Many felt Shanahan had targeted quarterback Mac Jones, while many fans scoffed at the idea. Jones was a target—along with Lance.
