No. 6: Wide Receiver Marquise Goodwin

Back in 2017, it appeared as if the 49ers had found a hidden, unused gem of a wide receiver in Marquise Goodwin. Goodwin, the speedster, seemed a perfect fit in Kyle Shanahan’s offense, nearly totaling 1,000 yards with three different quarterbacks tossing him the ball.

But in 2018, injuries and personal tragedy relegated Goodwin to a “what could have been” player. And this year, Goodwin has been little more than an afterthought.

In total this season, Goodwin had just 12 years for 186 yards and a touchdown — a far cry from the impressive numbers he put up two years before — before landing on season-ending injured reserve with various injuries.

With San Francisco having completely revamped its wide receiver corps, particularly by developing rookie wideout Deebo Samuel and acquiring Emmanuel Sanders via a trade, Goodwin now faces a very uncertain future with the 49ers.

While still under contract into next season, it wouldn’t be shocking at all to see San Francisco explore other options than the one-time offensive standout.
