CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Four months after giving the Rams the green light to return to Los Angeles, NFL owners on Tuesday awarded the city the right to host the Super Bowl in early 2021, after an absence of 28 years.

It was notable that the 49ers had three picks in quick succession late in the sixth round and used the three selections on: 1. quarterback Jeff Driskel, 2. running back Kelvin Taylor and 3. wide receiver Aaron Burbridge. They were the only three skill players the 49ers -- who ended up with 11 picks total -- drafted. This on a team that scored the fewest points in the league last year, ranked 31st in total yards, and that has all sorts of questions at quarterback, receiver and --beyond starter Carlos Hyde -- running back.
