49ers player No. 1: Tight end George Kittle

When you think of All-Pro tight end George Kittle, you’re probably thinking about his prowess on the field and his unique, almost cult-like persona.

Those traits would certainly aid him in making the eventual transition from an onfield player into a color analyst. And we’d be lucky to continue seeing Kittle’s outgoing personality once he finally decides to hang up his cleats, whenever that day comes.

What’s not seen as frequently, though, is the analytical part of Kittle’s game. It’s there, though, and any member of the media who has listened to the tight end break down a specific play or talk about a scheme can see just how detail-oriented he truly is.

However, that might not be the reason why fans tuning into television broadcasts would love seeing and hearing Kittle in the booth.

It’s an entertainment business, after all, and Kittle is awfully entertaining. Just by watching any of the NFL “Mic’d Up” series with him featured will reveal that.

Yeah, that should translate into the broadcast booth without any issue whatsoever.
