Former All-Pro CB Eric Davis joins me as we recap the San Francisco 49ers wild draft weekend. With a big kudos to general manager John Lynch for the haul. Davis brings a unique perspective that you can only get from a former player. We went through everything draft related, replacing DeForest Buckner and Emmanuel Sanders, remaining positions of need, and the following:

-Why the 49ers drafted Kinlaw, and what his impact will be

-How Lynch “stuck to the script” by building through the trenches

-It’s okay to trade up for a player if it’s “your guy”

-Shanahan’s comparison to Brandon Aiyuk

-What the rest of the receiver room looks like now

-Is Trent Williams an upgrade over Staley?

-Breida/Goodwin trades

-Was it wise to ignore drafting a secondary player?

-Much, much more

Eric is easy to talk to and has a wealth of knowledge.
