Golden Nuggets: DeForest Buckner And DROY Talks

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The season for the San Francisco 49ers has been a tough one and it will finally come to an end on Sunday. The 49ers face the Seattle Seahawks who still have something to play for. Seattle has seedings that are up in the air and depending on results, they could end up with the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th seed in the NFC. They will want to win Sunday’s game because it could affect their playoff scenario, so the 49ers will face an uphill battle.

The season has been rough, but one bright spot during this season has been the play of DeForest Buckner, last draft’s #7 pick. His play has picked up as the year has gone and he could have a bright future on the 49ers. He has 71 tackles, 2 fumble recoveries, and his 6 sacks leads all 49ers.

He could be in the running for defensive rookie of the year. He leads all rookies in tackles and has the 2nd most by defensive tackles in all the NFL. He has played the most snaps of all defensive tackles. He is 3rd in sacks for all rookies. He would be the 1st 49ers player to win the award since Patrick Willis won in 2007. DeForest Buckner could be a cornerstone of the 49ers defense for years to come as long as he continues to grow and develop.
