Wes Welker is in his second season as the 49ers wide receivers coach. He joined San Francisco after spending the previous two years (2017-18) with the Houston Texans as the team's offensive/special teams assistant.
In 2019, the 49ers receiving corps was led by rookie WR Deebo Samuel, who registered 57 receptions for 802 yards and three touchdowns while also adding 14 carries for 159 yards (11.4 average) and three touchdowns. His 57 receptions and 802 receiving yards each ranked second among all rookies in franchise history. Samuel also became the first wide receiver in franchise history to record three rushing touchdowns in a single season. WR Emmanuel Sanders, who was acquired in a trade prior to Week 8, notched 36 receptions for 502 yards and three touchdowns, while WR Kendrick Bourne tallied 30 receptions for 358 yards and a career-high five touchdowns.
