Mayock Applauds 49ers Top Picks

Posted by Taylor Price on May 3, 2012 – 3:00 PM

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock raved about the San Francisco 49ers draft class in a recent appearance on the Rich Eisen Podcast.

Firepower for the 49ers offense was how Mayock described San Francisco’s additions of Illinois wide receiver A.J. Jenkins and Oregon running back LaMichael James in the first and second rounds of the 2012 NFL Draft.

“What they’re trying to do is inject firepower into their offense, and that is really smart because they’re winning games the hard way right now,” Mayock said. “They’re winning games by playing great defense and not turning the ball over on offense, and playing field position. They were the best team in the league at turnover differential. When that turnover differential changes up, your margin of error goes way down.

“You need somebody who can gulp big yards. I felt like the three most exciting scat-back, slot receiver-type guys were LaMichael James, Isaiah Pead and Chris Rainey… LaMichael James in San Francisco, along with A.J. Jenkins, provides a completely different dimension.”

The 49ers totaled 57 plays that went for 20-or-more yards in 2011, 41 came on receiving plays while 16 were on rushing plays. Both Jenkins and James figure to help the team increase those totals in 2012.

    There’s already a ton on the bandwagon… powerrankings across the board have the 49ers as a top 5 team…. easily a superbowl contender in the NFC, and a firm stranglehold over the worst division.
