Would you take Calvin Ridley at #9 overall? /// Today’s Draft Spotlight is on Alabama WR Calvin Ridley. Ridley (6-1, 190) is one of the best receivers projected to be in the upcoming draft and should get a look from any team looking to address the position. The 49ers could be one of those teams. "The wide receiver class is wide open at the top, and Ridley’s downfield ability could make him the top receiver off the board," wrote Steve Palazzolo of PFF. "A run-heavy approach has limited his production over the last two years, but Ridley has the speed to stretch the field and the route-running to create separation at the short and intermediate level. He’s also been a weapon after the catch for Alabama, averaging 6.2 YAC per reception in his career. The Packers could certainly use his speed to add another weapon for QB Aaron Rodgers, while the Bears are in need of any kind of playmaker out wide. Keep an eye on the 49ers as well, who have capable role players in the passing game, but they lack a true No. 1 receiver on the outside." /// Photo credits @exertgfx Caption credits (edited) www.247sports.com /// #49ers#49erfaithful#49ersfaithful#niners#ninergang#ninernation#ninerempire#ninerfaithful#nfl#football#sanfrancisco#redandgold#practice#preseason#trainingcamp#sf#sports#espn#jersey#goniners#nfldraft#nfldraft2018#overtime#team#sunday#calvinridley -Credit to: @the49erspage-
The NFL gave 10 teams the maximum of five primetime games when the 2018 regular season schedule came out last week. Only two of those teams were below .500 in 2017, and one has Aaron Rodgers, arguably the league’s best quarterback. The team other than Green Bay was the 49ers, who finished 6-10, but are hoping to generate a similar amount of star power under center with Jimmy Garoppolo now that he’s locked in as the face of the franchise. Garoppolo hasn’t lost a start during his time with the Patriots and 49ers. He’s 7-0 The league took notice, giving the 49ers a few marquee match ups for national audiences, including a Monday Night affair against Rogers and the Packers at Lambeau Field, and a Sunday night game in October against the Rams, hoping the in-state rivalry can start to take off. San Francisco will also host the Giants for a Monday night game in November. Richard Sherman’s return to Seattle will be a Sunday night game on NBC. Jimmy G of whom been at the Top of the NFL food chain with the Patriots his entire time in the league is not impressed or shaken with the upcoming schedule… Garoppolol: “I don’t think the spotlight really changes anything, The pressure that you put on yourself is always going to be greater than any outside person or whatever it might be could put on you. I think we’re looking up to the challenge.” #nnnniiiinnnneeeerrrrssss!!!! #49ers#brickbybrick#faithfulthenfaithfulnow#thejimmygaroppoloerahasbegun
