A run-first offense that just lost their best receiver? Cousins is likely to finish higher than where I have him ranked because he's been durable and has zero chance of losing the starting job, but I'd rather select someone with more upside in that range. The best-case scenario for Cousins is that he finishes as a high-end QB2, which is a reach considering he threw the ball just 444 times last year.The 49ers aren't likely to become a pass-happy team overnight, even though they added Brandon Aiyuk in the first round of the NFL Draft. They also added stability to the offensive line when they traded for Trent Williams. These are certainly not bad things when searching for a potential breakout, but a non-mobile quarterback with a great defense isn't a recipe for success. He's best suited for QB2 leagues.

Cousins had 3,603 yards passing and 26 passing touchdowns on a run oriented team. He is a middle of the road QB2 on an offense that abandons the pass at times.
