Alex Collins Jersey
For the first time since 2012 Alex Collins Jersey , the San Francisco 49ers passed on a chance to add to their defense in the first round of the draft and instead grabbed an offensive lineman.
Don't expect general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan to take the same approach on Friday.
The 49ers have holes to fill along their defensive line, linebacker and in the secondary.
Lynch acknowledged after the first round that he and his staff had been looking at a handful of linebackers with their first selection before settling on offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey. The 49ers' first-round pick in 2017 Steve Young Jersey , middle linebacker Reuben Foster, is currently facing domestic violence charges.
San Francisco could also use some help in the secondary. The team signed free agent Richard Sherman in the offseason but the four-time Pro Bowl cornerback is still on the mend after rupturing his right Achilles tendon last season.
Since rookie quarterback Sam Darnold ended his brief holdout and signed with the Jets Terron Armstead Jersey , there’s been a steady drumbeat of talk that he has a good chance of earning the starting job in Week One. Now Darnold is looking like not only does he have a chance, but he’s the favorite to start when the Jets open the regular season against the Lions on Monday Night Football.
Darnold was working with the first-string offense in practice this week Chris Conley Jersey , and Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News writes that it would be an upset if Darnold doesn’t start the opener.
According to the report, the Jets’ decision makers are getting happier and happier with their decision to take Darnold third overall with each day of practice they see.
Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he has been impressed with both Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater Tom Rathman Jersey , and that it’s a three-way quarterback race. But the Jets didn’t draft Darnold to stand on the sideline holding a clipboard. They drafted him because they think he’s their franchise quarterback.
