San Francisco 49ers: Youthful Receivers
There’s a lot of excitement and anticipation surrounding what will hopefully be Jimmy Garoppolo’s first full season as a starter. But who exactly is going to be throwing to? The 49ers are awfully young and inexperienced at wide receiver.
Dante Pettis showed some flashes last season, but he’s far from established. The 49ers could be asking a lot from rookie Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd. San Francisco did bring in Jordan Matthews to give them a little more experience, but he hasn’t done anything substantial since 2016. In short, Garoppolo may be forced to work with some inexperienced wide receivers who are also trying to establish themselves as consistent contributors in the NFL.
