Better have a lot of QBs on your practice roster if you're playing the NFC Champion Philadelphia Eagles twice this year

Welcome to the 2023 Player Analysis. I will look at the roster and take a look at each player on our team. For those that are new players are graded on an A to F grade based on recent/current performance and potential. Overall grades are not an average but relative to the their current and future value. As per tradition we we will start with the Quarterbacks.

Quarterbacks

Brock Purdy - 2022 Draft Mr. Irrelevant. The final pick in the draft. Usually doomed to a life of obscurity at best and an early camp cut at worst. But due to a season ending injury to both starters Jimmy Garrapolo and 2nd year QB Trey Lance, Purdy was thrust into the starting lineup. In cleanup duty he posted a pretty impressive 13 TDs and only 4 INT and throwing another 3 TDs in the post seasons. Pretty impressive for a rookie. Brock does not have the strongest arm but he is has proven himself to be a pretty accurate QB averaging about a 65% completion rating. Very respectable for a rookie. The biggest beneficiary was George Kittle to whom Kittle passed 8 TDs to. Brock is decisive with the ball and has enough athleticism to avoid sacks and scramble for a few key yards as well. I have heard some interesting comparisons, but I might go with Boomer who basically thought Purdy was a poor man's Joe Montana in the sense that he won't wow you physically but he has very good intangibles. It's clear the organization sees Brock as the QB of the future as they are rushing to get him back into this year's training came and so long as there are no setbacks he is the clear starter. He is already the most accomplished Mr. Irrelevant of all time (hell he is already more accomplished than some current NFL starters). Time will tell if he can maintain this trajectory but with the teams weapons and with Kyle's confidence in him he can continue to improve and develop.

Performance: B
Potential: B
Overall: B

Trey Lance - #3 Pick in the 2021 Draft. Trey Lance has been dealt an unfortunate hand. Injuring himself in game 2 in his first season as a starter, while the season went on without him, the rise of Brock Purdy now puts his future with the team in jeopardy. Trey Lance is clearly competing for the primary backup spot and with the way this team seems to be snakebitten, he would need to stay loose, as he could be called in sooner than expected. Also there may be a possibility Trey Lance lines up as the QB on certain plays or packages, Trey unlike Brock as has great athleticism and elite arm strength, he has the potential to make explosive plays and all reports are that he has worked hard in his rehab and has had his nose in the playbook. It's tough to say if he has a long term future with the team but I get the feeling Kyle Shanahan will find snaps for him as he can contribute in one way or another.

Performance: C
Potential: B+
Overall: B-

Sam Darnold - Sam Darnold was the #3 in the 2018 Draft. Darnold has had a tough go of it since he has been in the league. Drafted to a bad Jets team who did not ever really believe in him, Sam went through the ups and downs that young quarter backs go through, After the 2020 the Jets decided to give up on him and trade him to the Carolina Panthers for a 2021 6th and future 2nd and 4th round picks. Not exactly a kings ransom. Sam has some physical talent but during his stints in New York and Carolina he has a tendency to play hero ball and make reckless throws many of which end up in the hands of the opponent. I think Sam is young enough to fix himself and the 49ers are a successful organization. But a lot of pundits have this fantasy that he will magically fulfill his potential and become a future starter but more realistically, he is the 3rd QB after Brock and Trey and all he really needs to be, even if called to the starting lineup is to be a game manager and take the yards that are given to him. If he can do that perhaps he can rehab his career and at worst he can be a long term backup who can be competent enough in a game situation or play in garbage time in the case of a blowout.

Performance: C-
Potential: C
Overall: C-

Brandon Allen - Longtime NFL backup. Brandon Allen has not started in many games. Brandon is basically going to be on the practice squad as an emergency backup. He is a professional who will probably play a few more years as a backup and end up as a high school or college coach somewhere maybe work in a front office.

Performance: D
Potential: D
Overall: D

Unit Analysis:

The first 2 QBs are not even 24 years old yet, but both of them have bright futures ahead of them. Hopefully with the 49ers. Sam Darnold is about as good as you can get for a 3rd QB. You hope he never has to start but if he did, even he can win a few games with this offensive and conservative playcalling. Brandon Allen does have starting experience but I wonder if we could have signed Carson Wentz for a 1 year cheap deal as I think he is better than Darnold and with the luck we have at QB, we need to be 4 QBs deep with starting experience. But either way, this is a solid unit that if either Brock or Trey can stay upright are good enough to lead a deep playoff run combined with this teams elite weapons maybe even a Super Bowl (with the right matchup).

Unit Grade: B

Let's take a look at our wide receivers today.

Wide Receivers

Deebo Samuel - Deebo is one the NFL's highest paid receivers. Despite this he had an off year last year with an unspectaular 623 yard receiving and only 2 TDs. It was clear he was spent last offseason partying a bit too much as he was out of shape (relatively). This is not indicative of what Deebo is and it's clear that Samuels is aware of this and re-dedicated himself into getting into shape this offseason and looks like he is ready to bounce back. Deebo is one of the best weapons in the NFL but through all of it I think sometimes people forget how good of a fundamental WR he is. He runs a complete route tree and if you get him the ball he is extremely difficult to bring down as he is built more like a runningback than a receiver not unlike players like Danny Amendola and Wes Welker, but Deebo is a much better athlete as he possess both quick twitch speed and speed to run the ball downhill. I expect a return to form this season as the offense could be even more unstoppable with Deebo lined up. I also hope Kyle greatly reduces if not eliminates the snaps he takes behind the line of scrimmage, we have more than enough RBs who burst through the hole.

Performance: B
Potential: A
Overall: B+

Brandon Aiyuk - The best PAC 12 bum ever. 1015 yard and 8 TDs. Brandon Aiyuk is entering his prime as a receiver. Aiyuk was the best receiver of the 2022 season and teams are watching him like a hawk to see if the 49ers are able to sign him long term as he already is a potential 2024 free agent target, especially teams that lean toward running the ball. Aiyuk is a well balanced receiver, running a complete route tree, fighting for contested balls and fighting for extra yards. He is good enough to be a #1 receiver on a lot of teams but it's an advantage we have him as a #2. He has to be accounted for otherwise he will burn you for 1st down after first down and before you know it, score. Not sure what whether his future is here or elsewhere but Uncle Herm Edwards was right when he said just get that young man the ball and he'll make things happen.

Performance: B+
Potential: A-
Overall: B+


Jauan Jennings - Drafted in the 7th round of the 2020 draft. Jennings also nicknamed 3rd and Jauan, has established himself as a very capable 3rd down receiver. His large 6'3 frame allows him to beat slot corners on a regular basis and keep the chains moving. While not a burner in terms of speed, he has shown above average quickness in the open field and his speed (or lack thereof) isn't an impediment to him making plays. He has been the big pass catcher that we have needed for years and he is integral to rounding out the offense.

Performance: B-
Potential: B-
Overall: B-

Ray Ray McCloud III - An NFL journeyman at only 26, Ray Ray is another talented young player who the 49ers brought in to handle return duties in the departure of Richie James (now a Kansas City Chief). Ray Ray is a consistent return man and when asked to line up at receiver has been a pretty solid option. These are the pieces that fill in the gaps on great teams,

Performance: C+
Potential: B-
Overall: C+

Danny Gray - 2022 3rd round pick. Danny Gray was drafted to be the teams speedster. He made an impressive TD catch last pre-season but he seems to be in Kyle Shanahan's 'dog house'. I think he the biggest thing is that he is being trained to be a more complete receiver. He is probably working on running a more complete route tree and blocking consistently, these were issues when he was drafted as he ran mostly go routes in SMU due to his blazing 4.3 speed. I don't know how many snaps he will play in 2023-2024, as the above receivers are more proven but he could be stashed away on the roster as an insurance against the departures of Ray Ray McCloud and/or Brandon Aiyuk potentially after the 2024 season. He can also play as a specialist or in certain packages as he can blow the top off a defense with his speed.

Performance: C-
Potential: B-
Overall: C


Chris Conley - Veteran NFL WR. Conley has a chance to compete for the 5th WR spot. He stands as a tall 6'3 with a 4.3 40 time. Despite that he never quite showed that level of speed in the NFL even before tearing his achilles in 2017. With that said he could be a veteran presence on a fairly young WR room. But his spot on the main roster is far from guaranteed.

Performance: C-
Potential: C-
Overall: C-

Isaiah Winstead - 2023 UDFA from Eastern Carolina. Despite not running in the combine there are reports of him running about a 4.75. He may be faster than that on the turf though. Winstead is an impressive specimen at about 6'3 and 210. He has a similar profile to Jauan Jennings. Despite putting up an impressive highlight reel, he went undrafted for a reason. I think he is a project. One that might pay off but a project nonetheless. His routes are at best unrefined, I think he is a better athlete than Jennings BUT he dislikes blocking and it shows, in fact, he seems to dislike contact though he can get some YAC just off his sheer size and he needs to work on his catching technique as he tends to catch with his body and not use his large frame to go out and get the ball and he drops too many passes for my liking. A lot of these issues are coachable though but I think he needs a year to work on that. I think he makes the practice squad and has a chance to train and build up an NFL level skillset to match his god given size,

Performance - C-
Potential - C+
Overall - C

Willie Snead IV - Veteran NFL receiver. He is mostly there to be a depth option. I would consider him to be a strong bubble player. He could be a practice squad stash or perhaps be cut this camp to make room for younger additions. There is a decent chance he comes back as a practice squad player for another season.

Performance: D
Potential: F
Overall: D-


Dazz Newsome - 2021 6th round draft pick. Dazz is really a potential special teams player and depth slot receiver. I think he will likely be stashed on the practice squad as a potential replacement for Ray Ray McCloud should we be unable to re-sign him for a cheap contract. Other than that he is a camp body with some upside.

Performance: D
Potential: C-
Ovrtall D+

Tay Martin - Davontavean Martin as a 2022 UDFA. At 6'2 he definitely has NFL height but at only about 185 lbs. Taller, lanky receivers have a tough time making it, the corners in the NFC west are big and physical and he is not so fast that he can just pass corners on speed. He is already 25, so he has fairly little upside, he can be an emergency receiver but he is basically fighting to keep his place on the practice squad.

Performance: D-
Potential: D-
Overall: D-

Unit Analysis:

I think the WR position is pretty much set from the 1-4 spots. So really the point of entry will be at receiver 5 for any potential shakeups and I think Danny Gray brings the most unique skillset of the the remaining receivers so it's his spot to lose. With that said, I think Isaiah Winstead could be a player to watch. Don't let my criticisms of him fool you, I also think he has considerable upside and could be a potential 3rd receiver in the future should things go left with Jauan Jennings come negotiation time or if he simply outplays his 7th round status and becomes a market commodity. We have a few NFL veterans who have logged in significant playing time and a few younger prospects who could use some seasoning. If healthy, I think this is one of the most well balanced receiver rooms in the league and if Deebo can return to 2021 form this is as fearsome a group as any in the league,


Unit Grade: B+

RBs coming soon
