49ers Sign Brandon Aiyuk, Javon Kinlaw

The San Francisco 49ers signed first-rounders, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw, to four-year rookie deals on Friday. Aiyuk went with the 25th overall pick out of Arizona State, while Kinlaw was the 14th overall pick from South Carolina. Aiyuk, 22, is known as a yards-after-the-catch monster and should fit in nicely in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. The rookie was already an attractive late-round flier as a starter in his first season, but he's moving up draft boards even more with Deebo Samuel (foot) potentially missing the start of the season. Kinlaw didn't put up huge numbers in college, but he's extremely strong and can disrupt the offensive line with his bull rush on the interior. San Fran is hoping he can step in right away and help fill the void left when they traded DeForest Buckner to the Colts.

Brandon Aiyuk Excels At Yards After Contact

San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, who was drafted 25th overall in April, had the second-most receiving yards after contact last year with 378, per Pro Football Focus. Aiyuk also ranked fifth in yards after the catch with 710. Emmanuel Sanders led the team with 29.3 percent of the team's air yards after arriving in a trade in Week 8 last year, but he's now playing for the Saints. Aiyuk will have an opportunity to be an immediate contributor in 2020, but his upside will be tempered by the likes of Kendrick Bourne and Deebo Samuel. There's a lot to like about the 22-year-old from Arizona State in the long term, but his upside will also be limited in San Francisco's run-heavy scheme. Aiyuk will also need to expand his route tree to realize his potential at the next level.

Brandon Aiyuk Recovered From Core Surgery

San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk is fully recovered from his core surgery. Taken 25th overall in April's draft, Aiyuk has been taking part in throwing sessions with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and others this offseason. The 22-year-old from Arizona State isn't the fastest wideout around, but he's a yard-after-the-catch monster and could thrive as a playmaker in Kyle Shanahan's offense as an immediate starter next to Deebo Samuel. He'll need to expand his route tree in order to maximize his potential, but he has a nice fit in San Francisco and could produce immediately in his rookie season. Consider Aiyuk more of a WR5/6 in deeper redraft leagues in San Fran's run-first offense, and he'll also be a solid dynasty/keeper target.
