5. San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers traded DT DeForest Buckner for financial reasons. They’ll keep his replacement from South Carolina, Javon Kinlaw, on a rookie contract for four years. Kinlaw also has a lot of potential but he’s not Buckner just yet.
Buckner averaged 66 tackles per season and 28.5 sacks 0ver his first four seasons. Those are great numbers and why the Indianapolis Colts will pay him $21 million per season. If you want to win the Super Bowl you need to keep your best players. The 49ers didn’t do that.
