with the winnner getting to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. The New Orleans Saints host the Los Angeles Rams in what should be a fun game. The game kicks off at 12:00 p.m PT on FOX https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Steve-Young-Jersey , with Joe Buck on play-by-play. Troy Aikman joins him on the commentaryThe Saints are either the biggest sleepers of the year or the ones to win it all this year depending on who you talk to. All the talk has been the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs, but the Saints have been dominating their opponents and when they can’t get the points, they find ways to take care of business. They were able to hold off Nick Foles in the final stretches of the NFC divisional round and advance to hosting the Rams. The Rams went into an arms race in the offseason putting pieces together on defense for defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. They traded for Marcus Peters, Aqib Talib and signed Ndamukong Suh. This made what was already a solid defense with Aaron Donald even more fearsome. On the other side of the ball, Sean McVay’s playcalling has made Jared Goff’s numbers grow exponentially by the game and Todd Gurley is one of, if not the best running back in the league. All of the Rams’ losses have come to playoff teams, one of which was the New Orleans Saints in the Superdome. The Saints won a shootout 45-35. The Saints are a field goal favorite against the Rams. The Rams run defense is a mess, so look for plenty of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. And considering the Rams rushing success last week, I think they focus on the ground as well. That should keep the score down to a certain extent. That said, I do think things will break apart late and we’ll see some lead changes in the final 10 minutes where the defenses may not as well even be on the field. I’ll take the Saints in this one by a touchdown. Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints Where: The Superdome, New Orleans, LouisianaWhen: January 20 Y.A.

While the San Francisco 49ers have made a lot of investments addressing the defensive line we have learned in this league that there truly isn’t a thing as too much depth. The question is, should a prospect such as Christian Wilkins drop to the second round, would the 49ers pounce and select him? Just in case they do, here is a closer look at the defensive tackle out of Clemson.Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsChristian Wilkins was not only a defensive star on the field for Clemson Joe Montana Color Rush Jersey , but off of it as well. He earned All-American honors, while playing a significant role for Clemson towards two national championships (Both against national power-house Alabama), and for his work on the Clemson defensive line. Off the field Wilkins made a positive difference in the lives of young students serving as a substitute teacher during the off-season.

He is the kind of player any franchise would want on their roster. Not only did he graduate early and return to Clemson for his senior season, he spent the offseason substituting inside school classrooms and being a positive role model for students of all ages. In 2018 Wilkins had 51 tackles, with 1 forced fumble loss and 6 sacks. Wilkins has good burst and speed off the snap and makes an impact and presence in the opposition’s backfield. Wilkins has a natural blend of upper and lower body strength. He is often double teamed along the line of scrimmage and makes an impact that helps his fellow defensive lineman make plays. Wilkins has demonstrated an ability to stop the run and the pass. Wilkins can be looked at as a three down defensive lineman. On tape, more often than not, Wilkins causes disruption at the point of attack. He has demonstrated his ability to rush the passer from the inside, which looks to be his natural position as he transitions to the next level. Has experience as a base end and defensive tackle. Has great burst on the snap with quick hands on the initial contact.

Wilkins has a knack for the football, batting down 15 passes during his career.

Wilkins has dedication and the heart of a champion.Is Wilkins a fit for the 49ers?At the moment, the defensive line, particularly the interior seem set. However, the 49ers are one trade away from changing that narrative. As I mentioned earlier, in this league you can never have too much depth at any position. Should the 49ers decide to move on from Arik Armstead or Solomon Thomas for any reason, then Wilkins could be an intriguing prospect. However, if the 49ers have their sights set on Wilkins they might need to trade into the backend of the first round (Should Wilkins drop that far). Again, at the moment, the 49ers seem set on the interior defensive line. However, I believe Wilkins would be a great addition to the 49errs defense should the team part ways with Armstead or Thomas. Keep a close eye on Wilkins should these scenarios happen. Wilkins is the perfect blend of on-field talent and off-field personality that any time would crave for. What are YOUR thoughts on Christian Wilkins? If the team were to trade Solomon Thomas or Arik Armstead would you be interested in selecting Christian Wilkins? Please share in the comments below!
