Kyle Shanahan switched to running backwards. The 49 climbed to number 88, trading numbers 117 and 121 to Rams. So, they still have a choice № 102, which is coming here soon.
The choice was from Ohio, which goes back to Trey Sermon. In his last three games as Buckeye, Sermon is running for 112, 331 and 193 yards. He averages double-digit costumes in each of these games.
I’ve been a big fan of Sermon since he was in Oklahoma, but his injuries have slowed him down. Here’s what the Sports Info Solutions Beginner’s Guide should say about the sermon. He was rated as their 1
The combination of contact balance and strength of Sermon will allow him to participate in the game, but the lack of elusiveness and maximum speed can prevent him from being a constant starter at the next level.
Strengths: Contact balance; Power; Endurance
Weaknesses: Elusiveness; Playback speed; Catching skills
Sermon is not as good a pass hunter as a runner, but he can play a role in the next level pass game. It is a better pass protector than the receiver, strong enough to take accelerators in your pocket and shows flashes of completion on weaker accelerators on the ground. The sermon is not a real producer of differences outside the back field, but it has enough hands and can be a reliable option to check.
The Ninners needed a run back, which could block. If this is a sermon, it has great value here. Shanahan must see it as an escape back into the future if he swaps in the third round to choose a sermon.
