San Francisco 49ers pick WR Dante Pettis at No. 44

Jimmy Garoppolo has a new receiving target.

The San Francisco 49ers selected Washington wide receiver and returner extraordinaire Dante Pettis with the 44th pick in the 2018 draft. The Niners traded up with the Washington Redskins to snag the Husky return man.

Pettis is the fifth receiver off the board this weekend and the second of the night after Courtland Sutton went to the Broncos.

In Pettis, the Niners are getting an speedy, elusive receiver who doubles as an elite return man. The Husky product broke the NCAA record for career return touchdowns (9), recording four in his senior season alone.

It’s not that hard to tune out because I really don’t read anything. I don’t understand why you’d get yourself worked up at 9 p.m. on a Tuesday because you’re getting into an argument on Twitter with somebody. I’m not keeping like an Arya hit list,’ Rosen said, referencing a vengeful character on his new favorite show.

I just want to go out and play football.

But during Arkansas’ loss at home to Auburn on Oct. 21, Ragnow suffered a high ankle sprain. It knocked him out for the final five games of his senior season, one that ended with just four victories and ultimately cost coach Bret Bielema his job.

However, that injury didn’t deter Ragnow in his belief he would be a first-round pick in the NFL Draft, a belief that was validated on Thursday when the Detroit Lions selected Ragnow (6-foot-5, 312 pounds) with the 20th overall selection.

To be honest, no, Ragnow said when asked if he was surprised the injury didn’t hurt his draft stock. I believe in my abilities and I knew that if I could just prove that my ankle was back to being healthy, I think the film didn’t lie. I’m just so excited that I’ve gotten to this point and here is where I am.

Where he’ll be is with the Lions, who have invested heavily in rebuilding the offensive line since Bob Quinn took over as general manager. He selected starters Taylor Decker and Graham Glasgow in 2016 before signing T.J. Lang and Rick Wagner to lucrative free-agent contracts last season.

Now, the Lions get the versatile Ragnow, who, like Glasgow, can play center or either guard spot. And when they met with him at the NFL Combine in March, there was little Cheap Football Jerseys Xxl doubt what he brought to Cheap Hockey Jerseys Canada the table.
