After only two wide receivers went in the first Antworten

SANTA CLARA Anthony Nelson Jersey , Calif. (AP) — 35 picks, the San Francisco 49ers had plenty to choose from when it came time to make their second-round selection.They opted to go for a player they had some familiarity with after coaching him in the Senior Bowl, selecting South Carolina’s Deebo Samuel with the 36th overall selection in the NFL draft. They added another receiver when they selected Baylor’s Jalen Hurd in the third round with the 67th pick Friday.Only two receivers went in the first round with Baltimore taking Oklahoma’s Marquise Brown 25th overall and New England using the 32nd pick on Arizona State’s N’Keal Harry. No receivers went in the first three picks in the second round before the Niners pounced on Samuel to replace the departed Pierre Garcon.“It hurts for people to tackle him,” coach Kyle Shanahan said. “It doesn’t hurt him as bad. That’s a physical receiver, to me, and a big guy and when you have the hands like that and you have the speed. We’re not playing basketball. We’re not just trying to throw alley-oops under the back board and post people up and box them out and stuff. We want guys to separate, to get the ball in the hand and run.”Samuel had 62 catches for 882 yards and 11 touchdowns last season for South Carolina and is also skilled as a returner with four kick return touchdowns in his career with the Gamecocks. He has experience playing both outside and in the slot and excels with his ability to run after the catch. He forced 21 missed tackles last season, according to Pro Football Focus.“Me personally, I just feel like you’ve got to have that dog in you,” Samuel said. “Having that mindset, not one person is going to bring you down, and you’re going to make every catch that’s thrown your way.”Hurd spent three seasons as a running back at Tennessee before transferring to Baylor and changing positions. He had 69 catches for 946 yards and four TDs last season. He had multiple shoulder surgeries in college and also had minor knee surgery last year.Shanahan said Hurd is versatile enough to be drafted as a receiver, running back or tight end.“That’s a pretty unique thing to have,” Shanahan said. “I don’t remember being able to say that about any player I’ve studied before. So Jeffery Simmons Jersey , it’s neat to be able to do that and he can help us out in a lot of different ways.”Samuel and Hurd join last year’s second-round pick Dante Pettis and speedster Marquise Goodwin as San Francisco’s top receivers. The team also signed Jordan Matthews in free agency and brings back Kendrick Bourne, Trent Taylor and Richie James among others.The 49ers’ second-round pick was announced by DeMarcus Cobb, the son of late 49ers scout Reggie Cobb, who died last Saturday at the age of 50. There was a moment of silence to honor Reggie Cobb before the pick was made.San Francisco used its first-round pick to bolster the edge rush, taking Ohio State’s Nick Bosa second overall.Bosa, the brother of Chargers star Joey Bosa, had 17 1/2 sacks and 29 tackles for loss in 30 games with the Buckeyes. He played in only three games last year before suffering a core muscle injury that required season-ending surgery.Bosa will team with recently acquired Dee Ford to give the Niners two potent edge rushers to help upgrade a defense that set an NFL record for futility with only seven takeaways last season.Bosa was asked again about his social-media history that included some Twitter messages that he deleted that could be considered racist and homophobic. He apologized for one that called former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick a “clown” shortly after he began his protest of racial injustice and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem.“It wasn’t directed toward that,” he said. “It’s not like I’m saying his stance and what he was doing, that’s not what I was calling or talking about at all. It was just me, a specific thing that happened and me as a young kid, a thought popping into my head and boom, decided to tweet it out. Bad, bad decision. I respect what he’s done. If it empowers anybody, then he’s doing a good thing. I apologize for that.”The 49ers have three picks Saturday Nate Davis Jersey , coming at No. 104, 176 and 212 overall. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Accountability has become a common theme in the Philadelphia Eagles‘ locker room.The team relied on strong brotherhood and camaraderie to overcome a lot of adversity and capture the franchise’s first Super Bowl title last season. Now, players are questioning whether their teammates have enough drive and desire.Last week, center Jason Kelce said “there was a much greater level of accountability from a cohesive standpoint” in 2017.On Tuesday, safety Malcolm Jenkins said “the demeanor of the team really bothered me” in a 48-7 loss to the Saints.Coach Doug Pederson and quarterback Carson Wentz responded to Jenkins’ comments in different ways Wednesday.“I talk about ownership quite a bit, and I think some of his comments are directed toward him,” Pederson said of Jenkins. “He’ll own that. And I think it kind of sends a message a little bit to everybody. We’re all held to a higher standard, and it starts with me. I lean on our leadership of this football team quite a bit and ask that if they see something, to respond. I don’t think he is addressing it to one particular person. I think it’s a whole, it’s a group, and we all need to kind of step our game up.”After Jenkins got beaten by Alvin Kamara for a 37-yard touchdown catch on fourth-and-7 in the fourth quarter and the Saints already leading by 31 points, Jenkins raised two middle fingers to his former head coach Sean Payton. Then he slammed his helmet to the turf on the sideline.Wentz was visibly frustrated after throwing an interception earlier in the game and punched the air as he walked toward the bench.“We all have a ton of respect for his opinion and how he sees things, and we all see things a little differently,” Wentz said of Jenkins. “What I said after the game is that we won’t be a team that quits. We won’t be a team that lays down. There’s something that we can see on film from how we handled our body language and different things like that Tytus Howard Jersey , myself included, that’s uncharacteristic of who we are. It’s really up to the leaders, Malcolm, myself, other leaders to hold everyone accountable and keep plugging along.”The Eagles were a close-knit group last season on their way to a 13-3 record. Players stood up for each other, supported one another and it was evident in how they overcame a slew of injuries to key starters. Wentz was having an MVP-caliber season when he tore two knee ligaments in Week 14. But Nick Foles stepped in and ended up becoming the Super Bowl MVP after leading Philadelphia past Tom Brady and the Patriots, 41-33.That seems far longer than only nine months ago. The Eagles (4-6) have lost two in a row and will try to snap a three-game home losing streak when they host the New York Giants (3-7) on Sunday.“They’re disappointed. We’re all disappointed. The season has not gone the way we anticipated coming out of training camp,” Pederson said. “So we continue to fight every single day in practice. … This is one of the things I love about this football team, there isn’t a ton of finger pointing. You might take Malcolm’s comments as finger pointing or Kelce’s; it’s not. They’re talking about themselves, too, right? They hold themselves accountable. I hold myself accountable, and then collectively we can do that as a group.”
