I joined the Better Rivals crew to discuss quarterbacks and wide receivers, including where Smelter fits into the 2016 equation.



  • Jared Goff’s pocket presence and arm strength.
  • Why is pocket presence a pass/fail factor to quarterbacking?
  • Are there other pass/fail aspects to quarterbacking?
  • Where Goff fits within the past 4 years of QB talent.
  • Why am I a believer in Cardale Jones’ talent?
  • Is Carson Wentz a good fit for the 49ers?
  • A review of Laquon Treadwell and Josh Doctson.
  • Thoughts on Leonte Carroo and Michael Thomas.
  • Malcolm Mitchell and Mitch Matthews as sound mid-to-late picks for the 49ers.
  • Where DeAndre Smelter fits within this year’s RSP rankings.
