As a senior, Kinlaw was named Associated Press First-Team All-America, starting all 12 games in which he appeared and registering 35 tackles, 6.0 sacks and two forced fumbles.
The 49ers traded up to select Aiyuk with the 25th-overall pick. The wideout appeared in 25 games in two seasons at Arizona State and registered 98 receptions for 1,666 yards and 11 touchdowns. Aiyuk also recorded 28 kick returns for 760 yards (27.1 average) and 25 punt returns for 293 yards (11.7 average) and 1 touchdown. As a senior in 2019, the receiver earned Third-Team All-America honors.
