Brenden Rice reflects on father Jerry Rice’s legacy and the possibility of playing for the 49ers

Wouldn’t it be something if Brenden Rice was picked by the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL draft? Brenden Rice recently talked about his father, Jerry Rice, arguably the greatest receiver of all time.

An NFL. com draft analyst said this about Brenden Rice:

The bloodlines don’t get much better than Jerry Rice, so Brenden Rice might have a head start on the rest of the field. He’s big and plays a physical brand of football when cornerbacks want to fight over space. He lacks sudden feet, so beating press cleanly and separating on short routes could be challenging as a pro. Rice possesses good build-up speed to create deep-ball opportunities once his ball skills are added to the equation. Rice catches with quick, strong hands and good extension to help with frequent contested catches. There are some limitations at play, but he has enough checkmarks to project as an early backup with some upward mobility.

The NFL draft is one month away. We will see what happens with Brenden Rice.
