Jeremiah on why the 49ers have continued success in the NFL Draft
By Rohan Chakravarthi
The San Francisco 49ers have been one of the league’s best drafting teams over the Lynch-Shanahan era, having selected the likes of Nick Bosa, Deebo Samuel, Fred Warner, and George Kittle, all of whom have had elaborate success in the NFL.
Why has that been the case? NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah, who held a pre-draft conference call, gave insight into his belief about the organization and where the success comes from, starting with general manager John Lynch.
“I think John Lynch has done a phenomenal job and they’ve got a great staff there,” Jeremiah said. “Adam Peters is someone I respect as much or more than anybody else in this league. I’ve known him — we kind of started similar time scouting and he’s worked his way up and he’s been around a lot of
Kyle Brandt explains why 49ers QB Trey Lance is the most pivotal player in the NFL
What can we expect from the San Francisco 49ers in 2022 with second-year player Trey Lance at the helm of the offense? A lot depends on the young quarterback’s development. We didn’t see much of him last season when Lance started two games and played just 178 offensive snaps. It’s not a big sample size to judge.

If a deal is going to happen, it will probably happen by the night’s end. If it doesn’t, the 49ers are likely holding onto Samuel and hoping the team-player relationship can be mended.
That hasn’t stopped NFL teams from trying, though.
“There are multiple teams that have tried to engage with the 49ers,” Pelissero said on NFL Network. “They’ve had multiple offers, including a first-round pick and more. The 49ers just don’t seem inclined to engage, at least not at the same compensation point as the Tyreek
Why PFF names 49ers rookie Drake Jackson as a day two draft steal
Pro Football Focus looked at the entire 2022 NFL Draft and identified some of the biggest draft steals. The San Francisco 49ers didn’t own a first-round pick but did have nine picks starting with No. 61 overall in the second round. With that selection, the Niners added defensive end Drake Jackson out of USC, and the analytics site sees the pick as a great value for the NFC West team.
“San Francisco got a promising developmental pass-rusher with Drake Jackson much later than any team should have,” wrote Anthony
