All 32 Teams' Wide Receiver Situations Ahead of Free Agency and the Draft
Before roster rebuilding officially begins on March 17 with free agency, NFL Network analytics expert Cynthia Frelund broke down where every NFL team stands at wide receiver. Here's what she had to say about the 49ers:
Top three WRs in 2020:
Brandon Aiyuk (60 catches, 748 receiving yards, 5 receiving touchdowns) Kendrick Bourne (49 catches, 667 receiving yards, 2 receiving touchdowns -- UFA) Deebo Samuel (33 catches, 391 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdowns)
"On passes of 10-plus air yards last season, the Niners' receivers only caught two touchdowns versus seven interceptions; that was the fewest such touchdowns among receiving groups in the NFL, per NGS. Wideouts aligned wide, meanwhile, only caught three touchdowns, which is tied for the second fewest. One area the Niners excelled at was yards after the catch per reception; their mark of 6.4 yards was the most in the NFL. "
