From mega-recruit running back prospect at Tennessee to wide receiver at Baylor, Jalen Hurd brings a versatile weapon to the 49ers offense. A third-round pick in the 2019 Draft, Hurd is still developing as a receiver but there's no denying his all-around playmaking potential.

On his 20-yard TD catch against Dallas, Hurd finds soft space in the Cowboys' zone coverage and then the power running traits took over as he crossed the goal line. Kyle Shanahan is going to have fun with this new toy.
