Here is a decent breakdown on Hurd. (6 min)

If you don't watch, here's the summary:
At Tennessee, he was 5 star recruit out of high school, and as a true freshman started all 13 games, he was lead back for his team and only lost his job to one Alvin freakin Kamara. He got fed up with that, and transferred to Baylor where he returned to the field- as lead WR. His strengths being: size (6'3" 230), after the catch ability, and vision.
Fast forward, he was pre-season stud before getting stress fracture back injury, and he's with offensive mastermind Shanny- who not only loves players with after the catch ability, but a bit of a gadget skill set to boot, this at the very least means that he's on the right team to succeed if he's given the opportunity.

This analysis was all prior to Deebo injury as well.

Like Hurd. I'd probably take him over Bourne just because i like his upside. But in redraft not sure im buying. I think Deebo only misses 2-3 game max. I think Hurd will be a package guy. He showed in the preseason that he's a redzone threat...he's physical and knows how you use his size well. Niners rookie Jauan Jennings is the same type of player. Big, Slow, physical slot/ redzone threat. Jennings led the nation in broken tackles for a WR above Lamb. They could be fighting for the same position.

Right now i rank the WRs Deebo, Aiyuk, Hurd, Bourne,Taylor, Jennings

49ers WR Jalen Hurd is expected to play the "big slot" role this season.

Per beat writer David Lombardi, the 49ers strive for "position-less" football, and Hurd might be the prime example. The former Vols running back could handle a couple carries per game, catch passes over the middle of the field, or use his 6-foot-4 inch frame to block on the edge - likely busting common personnel groupings defenses match-up against. If Hurd is the "big slot," that makes Trent Taylor the "small slot." Both are coming off injuries that forced them to miss the entire 2019 season.

a bit premature with that assessment, IMO.

Deebo's rushed rehab timeline definitely puts this guy on the radar, but the opportunity cost...cause you're only adding him due to Deebo's increased injury probability. If he breaks then Hurd goes from nothing to a potential top 25 WR just like that. But is that how the market will see him? If you don't need waiver priority to get him in that event then there is no need to rooster him from the outset.

I don’t trust any 49er receiver.

I have to admit I'm perturbed
I find your lack of analysis absurd
If rhyming in this thread is preferred
Then tell me why you demurred
