Just when I think I'm out, John Lynch pulls me back in.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) April 30, 2022
I LOVE Drake Jackson for this defense. Huge need for them and his speed rush is perfect for the scheme.
Drake Jackson on when the 49ers called him to pick him: “It felt like I walked outside of my body. I couldn’t believe it. My whole life has been dedicated to this moment."— David Lombardi (@LombardiHimself) April 30, 2022
I love this fit for TDP. Go watch all the success he had in gap scheme runs in 2021. In the #Florida game he had a #LSU record 287 yds, and 3 TD’s. He had 36 attempts that day and it was mostly gap scheme runs (power/counter). He’ll thrive in the #49ers run system. #NFLDraft https://t.co/HCRzjmu147— Jacob Hester (@JacobHester18) April 30, 2022
