  • The San Francisco 49ers would like to see a second-year leap from Josh Garnett. Last year’s first-round pick struggled throughout his rookie year while starting 11 of 15 games.
  • Garnett posted an overall grade of 42.4 last year, which ranked 70 out of 72 qualifying guards.
  • As expected, he struggled in both pass- and run-blocking with grades of 40.4 and 42.4, respectively.
  • Garnett’s pass-blocking efficiency rating (a PFF signature stat that measures pressure allowed on a per-snap basis with weighting toward sacks allowed) had him ranked 61st out of 61 guards with a rating of 93.2 (minimum of 355 snaps).
