How did all of the 49ers’ draft picks fare on Saturday?" 49ers Rookies49ers vs. Cowboys game week: Everything you need to knowRecapping the rookies’ debut in 49ers’ victory against CowboysNew Richard Sherman Color Rush Jersey ,94commentsHow did all of the 49ers’ draft picks fare on Saturday?PDTWith the NFL maintaining a four-game preseason, there are two main priorities for coaching staffs: keep players healthy for the regular season and evaluate rookies in live-action against other teams. The 49ers suffered more injuries than they would have liked, losing offensive tackle Shon Coleman with a right leg injury, running back Raheem Mostert with a concussion, defensive lineman D.J. Jones with a knee injury and receiver Trent Taylor before the game even began.Despite the concerns over losing healthy bodies, the 49ers’ coaching staff should be quite impressed with the debuts of their draft picks. Their No. 2 overall selection, pass rusher Nick Bosa, will miss the remainder of the preseason after suffering a high ankle sprain during practice this week. The rest of the 49ers’ draft picks exceeded expectations and brought a lot of optimism to fans. Wide Receiver Deebo SamuelWhile 49ers’ fans were certain that San Francisco would select Bosa at No. 2, they were really hoping that wideout Deebo Samuel would fall to them. After general manager John Lynch chose Samuel, he’s been nothing short of spectacular in Kyle Shanahan’s offense during training camp.Samuel opened today’s game with a 14-yard run on an end-around play that showed off his speed on the edge and versatility on offense. The former South Carolina receiver finished with two catches for 61 yards on four targets. On one play in the third quarter, Samuel blew by the defender on a double move and was on his way to the end zone , but an under-thrown ball left him with just a 45-yard catch on the play. The ex-Gamecock also drew a 25-yard pass interference penalty on the Cowboys’ defense. For a rookie receiver in his debut against an impressive Dallas secondary, all signs are pointing up for Samuel.Wide Receiver Jalen HurdFans were surprised when the 49ers chose weapons for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in back-to-back selections in this past draft. Hurd is an ideal Swiss-army knife for Shanahan, moving him around the field akin to a chess piece. Hurd scored two touchdowns for the 49ers in his debut on Saturday, showing strength and will to get to the end zone. On the first touchdown reception, the 49ers quarterback hit Hurd on a play-action fake, where the former Baylor receiver didn’t have a Cowboys’ defender near him. While the other receivers are quick and shifty, Hurd brings size, toughness and some grit to the 49ers’ skill position and is something that Shanahan and Garoppolo will lean on heavily this year.Punter Mitch WishnowskyWhile many — including myself — scoffed at the selection of a punter with a fourth-round draft selection, all accounts of Wishnowsky’s training camp performance have been extremely positive. Although fans don’t want to see the punter on the field often, the ex-Utah punter had six punts, with a long of 64 yards. Wishnowsky landed three punts inside of the 20-yard line and his long hang-time on these punts certainly help.Wishnowsky seems to be bringing back the good ‘ole days when Andy Lee boomed punts across the field.Linebacker Dre GreenlawThe 49ers’ brain trust continues to find linebackers in the middle rounds Mike Person Jersey , starting with Fred Warner last season and Dre Greenlaw this season. The former Arkansas defender has been competing with linebacker Malcolm Smith for a starting position alongside Warner. Saturday’s performance should put Greenlaw above the rest of the competition, racking up six tackles and moving sideline-to-sideline. Greenlaw’s quickness and nose for the football were on display early, making tackle after tackle against Cowboys’ players. Apart from the injuries, the 49ers defeated the Cowboys 17-9 and got solid performances from their four-most important rookies — sans Bosa. Look for these four to continue to get more playing time next week, but the future is bright in San Francisco. DENVER (AP)President Donald Trump couldn’t stand NFL players kneeling in protest during ”The Star-Spangled Banner.” His angry call to fire players who didn’t stand for the national anthem rekindled both the national debate over the issue and the movement itself. Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick initiated the protests last year to bring attention to racial inequality and police brutality against minorities. Kaepernick is currently out of football, and relatively few players were demonstrating this season before the president stoked his feud with the NFL . During a speech at a political rally in Huntsville, Alabama, in late September, Trump said, ”Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out Patrick Willis Color Rush Jersey , he’s fired, he’s fired.” Criticism from players, owners and fans – and some praise – greeted Trump’s remarks, which sparked a massive show of defiance that weekend, with more than 200 players protesting by choosing not to stand for the national anthem. The president’s feud with the NFL is the runaway winner for the top sports story of 2017 in balloting by AP members and editors, easily outdistancing the corruption scandal engulfing college basketball and the Houston Astros winning their first World Series and lifting the spirits of a city devastated by Hurricane Harvey. The year was marked by sex scandals, Russian doping and the U.S. failing to qualify for soccer’s World Cup . Tom Brady engineered a record-breaking comeback as the New England Patriots rallied from a 28-3 deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons in the first Super Bowl to go into overtime and Clemson mounted a last-second comeback to beat Alabama for the national championship. Kevin Durant led the Golden State Warriors to the NBA title and MMA star Conor McGregor stepped into the boxing ring to face undefeated champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. All of that was overshadowed by the NFL protesters and the president’s dive into the debate. Some allied groups were quick to call for an NFL boycott following Trump’s remarks about the protesters. The president’s attack on athletes turned the anthems – usually sung during commercials – into must-watch television shown live by the networks and streamed on devices. In addition to the protests, some players and coaches locked arms in a show of unity, which Trump said was a display of ”solidarity” of which he approved. But he pushed back against the suggestion that his critique could inflame racial tensions, arguing: ”This has nothing to do with race. This has to do with respect for our country.” But critics of the president said Trump’s comments had a lot to do with race. ”It just amazes me with everything else going on in this world, especially involving the U.S. , that’s what you’re concerned about, my man? You’re the leader of the free world and this is what you’re talking about?” Miami Dolphins safety Michael Thomas said. ”So, as a man, as a father, as an African-American man, as somebody in the NFL and one of those `sons of bitches,’ yeah, I took it personally.” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Trump’s comments were ”divisive” and showed an ”unfortunate lack of respect.” A handful of white players didn’t stand, but the vast majority of those actively protesting were black. ”We felt like President Trump’s speech was an assault on our most cherished right, freedom of speech,” said Denver Broncos star Von Miller DeForest Buckner Jersey , who normally steers clear of politics and social issues. Trump supporters argued the president was not targeting African-Americans but instead was simply expressing patriotism. ”Me taking a knee doesn’t change the fact that I support our military, I’m a patriot and I love my country,” Buffalo Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said. ”But I also recognize there are some social injustices in this country and today I wanted to take a knee in support of my brothers who have been doing it.” Although the protests returned to pre-Trump criticism levels as the season wound down, the president’s feud with the NFL sparked a firestorm that reached across financial and cultural landscapes, further splitting a nation already divided over politics and social issues. Kaepernick sued the league, alleging team owners conspired to keep him out in response to his activism. Hall of Fame Cowboys owner Jerry Jones suggested he’d fire any player who knelt even though none of his had done so. Papa John’s Pizza founder John Schnatter criticized Goodell over his refusal to force players to stand and blamed the protests for a slowing sales growth at one of the league’s biggest sponsors and advertisers. The company apologized for his comments following praise from white supremacists and said recently that Schnatter is stepping down as CEO in 2018. The NFL, already dealing with a dip in TV ratings, the ongoing concussion issue and a rash of star players getting hurt, recently proposed contributing tens of millions of dollars to projects focused on criminal justice reform, law enforcement and community relations and education. ”I give kudos to the NFL for wanting to step up and help us with regard to systemic oppression,” 49ers safety Eric Reid said. ”I question their intent behind it. I personally think they just want the protests to end because it’s hurting their bottom line.” The movement and the arguments over it show no sign of abating in the new year. ”I’m not really sure where the movement heads after this Garry Gilliam Color Rush Jersey , but I know we made some progress by getting some funding for some inner-city programs and things that we care about, different social programs and things like that,” Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall said. ”So, I think we made some headway.” —
