San Francisco is known to have since become a productive runner in recent years. There are more people who do not want that height.
The 49ers picked Ohio State running back Trey Sermon with Friday night’s 2021 NFL Draft overall pick at the Cleveland SF had to move up to make a selection, swapping two fourth rounds (No. 117 and 121) to the Rams.
Ohio State’s love-record sermon with an incredible 2020 season finish – his solo campaign shared with the Buckeyes – complements the injured Master Teague running 331yards in Buckeyes’ Big Ten game win over West. Northeast. The Indianapolis blast was the culmination of a three-game run in which he ran 636 yards and four touchdowns combined between victories over Northwestern Michigan State and Clemson. The last of the trio saw Sermon tear up 193 yards and score a touchdown in the Ohio State State Cup playoff finals, defeating the Tigers, getting the Buckeyes’ revenge and putting the sermon on the national map.
Sermon’s career was highly anticipated when he arrived in Oklahoma. But he never reached his potential with Sooners before moving to Ohio. His end came at a time when Buckeye opened up the NFL’s horizons to his potential and San Francisco responded generously by exchanging to grab him in the third round.
The sermon is a fitting fitting in Kyle Shanahan’s offensive line, which has seen the likes of Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert power up the 49ers’ hasty attack in the most successful season of 2019. Benefit from running behind defender Kyle Juszczyk and Shanahan’s schematic creativity, who will discover many different ways to enhance Sermon’s abilities.
Back in search of the last chance to make a name for himself at college level, Sermon has now found a new home in the NFL.
