When it comes to the 49ers' recent draft class, Nick Bosa became "The Choice" with the No. 2 overall pick after Arizona went with the as-expected decision of quarterback Kyler Murray at No. 1.
Mike Renner of Pro Football Focus wrote that Bosa indeed was a "no-brainer," and most of us can agree. But he also mentioned in his writeup that the rest of the 49ers draft class is extremely beneficial to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
After Bosa, the 49ers took wide receivers with their next two picks -- selecting South Carolina's Deebo Samuel in the second round and Baylor's Jalen Hurd in the third.
Let's start with Deebo Samuel.
Renner wrote that despite this pick being perceived as a tough decision, he's "a smooth route-runner with legit tackle-breaking ability after the catch." He broke 21 tackles last year, Renner adds, which is the fifth most in the country. (!!!)
He called the third-round pick of Jalen Hurd "head-scratching." But Renner did have a few nice things to say about Hurd, as the Baylor product's conversion from running back to wide receiver has gone smoother than expected.
Renner spoke with NBC Sports Bay Area about the selections, saying "Both Jalen Hurd and Deebo Samuel will make life easier on Jimmy with their ability to make something out of nothing after the catch."
Who doesn't love that?
Jimmy G is well on his way to coming back from his season-ending ACL injury last year. The rehab has been difficult, but he's throwing again and is ahead of schedule which is encouraging to him and everyone else involved.
"Their hopes obviously lie with one Jimmy G, but John Lynch and company have done an excellent job setting up their franchise quarterback for success," Renner wrote in his article.

I believe the saying goes, "I scratch your quarterback, you scratch mine."
That's not the saying don't ever say that. But it's nice to see the 49ers have their QB's best interest at heart by bringing in offensive weapons that will help him shine.
