PFF identifies ideal Day 2 NFL Draft fit for 49ers

“Freeland is one of the most athletic tackles of all time, and he even set the combine record for offensive linemen with a 37-inch vertical,” wrote Renner. “That athleticism played in a zone scheme at BYU, where he earned an 87.9 run-blocking grade. He’s still a project in pass protection with serious play strength concerns, but that may cause him to fall right into the 49ers’ lap at the end of the third round.”

It’s also why the Niners dove head first into free agency to land defensive tackle Javon Hargrave in the opening minutes of the negotiating window with a four-year, $84 million deal. In 2023, the Niners will rank sixth in cap money devoted to running backs, second on tight ends and the defensive line (before end Nick Bosa’s extension) and fifth at linebacker.”
