“Lynn was much maligned for his decision making in key situations, but was the Chargers’ head coach for four years, and drafted Justin Herbert. His Chargers had the highest-graded rushing offense in the NFL in 2018, per Pro Football Focus.”

Matt Maiocco explains why 49ers could get ‘pretty good draft haul’ for Jimmy Garoppolo
