SANTA CLARA Deebo Samuel San Francisco 49ers Jersey
, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have placed rookie receiver Jalen Hurd and cornerback Jason Verrett on injured reserve.The team also brought back receiver Jordan Matthews and cornerback Dontae Johnson on Thursday to replace them on the roster.Hurd has been dealing with a back injury since training camp and was initially expected back this week. But he hasn’t recovered as quickly as hoped and now will be shut down for at least eight more weeks.Verrett struggled in his only game this season two weeks ago against Pittsburgh. He also injured his knee during that game.The Niners are allowed to activate two players off injured reserve after eight weeks and both Hurd and Verrett are candidates for that.Matthews spent time in training camp with San Francisco and adds a veteran receiver to a young group.Johnson played four seasons with San Francisco from 2014-17 and also spent time with the team this summer in training camp. The 2018 draft was already decent, but he gave it a bit of a bump."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections 49ers Salary CapLevi’s Stadium Events49ers Transactions49ers Injury News49ers Press Conferences & Conference Calls2018 NFL Draft: 49ers picks, mock drafts, news Ronnie Lott Jersey

, and yet there’s so many positives found in that one year. The typical amount of time to judge if a draft was a success is in the ballpark of three-five years, but in one year the 49ers have had several starters emerge and play at a high level. ESPN’s Mel Kiper took a look at every NFL team’s draft from 2018 and re-graded them where appropriate. He gave the 49ers a B- in 2018 and bumped his grade up to a B. So...progress? Like we said: it’s going to take a few more years to really see where the 2018 draft class stands as far as solid production, but the first year was definitely something. It more than made up for the rocky start the 2017 draft class had. Yes, 2017 got George Kittle Alfred Morris Jersey
, but it also had Reuben Foster and Solomon Thomas, the earlier is already on his second team thanks to legal issues and the latter has been disappointing thus far. The one thing Kiper brings up is McGlinchey replacing Staley. In college, McGlinchey struggled at left tackle. I’m of the notion if it ain't broke, don’t fix it Mike Person Jersey
, but wouldn’t be surprised if the 49ers tried a flip/flop of the two in the preseason just to see how McGlinchey looks. Do you think this draft deserves a better, worse, or the same grade?
