He's a name to watch as we get closer to the NFL season. We know that Deebo Samuel had foot surgery this offseason and that he may not be ready for the start of the year. Many will wonder who can fill his role in the offense. It's Hurd. He played running back throughout college but switched to wide receiver his final season, so he can play that movable chess piece in Kyle Shanahan's offense. It's clear the 49ers liked him during the draft process, enough to draft him at the top of the third round. You may see him moving up draft boards in the near future.
