SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (6-10) LAST SEASON: The Niners’ bid to return to the Super Bowl was derailed by a spate of early-season injuries. Edge rusher Nick Bosa went down with a season-ending knee injury in Week 2, QB Jimmy Garoppolo missed 10 games with ankle issues, and other key players such as TE George Kittle and CB Richard Sherman also missed significant time as San Francisco stumbled to a third losing season in four years under coach Kyle Shanahan.
We’re one week away from the start of the 2021 NFL Draft. We have spent an unhealthy amount of time wondering who the San Francisco 49ers would select at No. overall.
Entering his third NFL season, the Detroit Lions' T.J. Hockenson hasn't reached the level of George Kittle as one of the league's top tight ends. Not yet, anyway. But, Hockenson certainly can hold his own as Kittle's tag-team partner.
