Instant Fantasy Analysis - WR Jalen Hurd, 49ers

Recommended Posts

With the selections of Deebo Samuel and Hurd, it's not hard to see San Francisco saw receiver as a weak spot on its roster. A few years ago, Hurd was a five star running back recruit. A couple of years ago, he was part of the reason Alvin Kamara played a limited role at Tennessee. He eventually transferred to Baylor to play receiver and lead the Bears in receiving. As one would expect from a player so inexperienced at the position, Hurd is a bit of a developmental project - he has drawn comps to Terrelle Pryor and may face a similar learning curve - but he is very much worth a roll of the dice. The 49ers likely envision the 6-4 Hurd becoming their contested-catch specialist in short order and may see him eventually taking on a Cordarrelle Patterson-type role within the first year or two. He doesn't figure to make much of a rookie-year impact, but he makes for an interesting dynasty stash in deeper leagues.
