2019 Outlook: Jerick McKinnon

It's disappointing we never got to see Jerick McKinnon in Kyle Shanahan's offense before he suffered his torn ACL, because his value has plummeted to the middle rounds on Draft Day as he recovers from his injury. As of late May, McKinnon was not participating in running or cutting drills in OTAs, though he is expected to be a full participant by training camp. Suddenly, McKinnon is in a crowded backfield with Tevin Coleman and Matt Brieda, but he still has the skills to be an impact back; that's why we were so excited this time a year ago. That upside still makes him worth targeting to stick on your bench.
