San Francisco 49ers Wide Receiver Marquise Goodwin is known for being a standout track and field athlete but now all those athletic abilities are being showcased on the football field. Goodwin had his best season ever as a pro in 2017 and that was despite the fact that Jimmy Garropolo was only playing quarterback for seven games. Goodwin will largely benefit from getting his first full season with the former New England Patriot (Garroppolo) under center. This guy is known for being a speed demon and Garoppolo has enough savvy to consistently find Goodwin over top. That tandem is going to be quite the vertical threat on Sundays and don’t be shocked when the 49ers end up being a surprise team this fall. There’s a lot of good momentum for this organization right now and Goodwin has a chance to really solidify himself as one of the better pass catchers in the game. Last year the former Texas Longhorns receiver (Goodwin) hauled in 962 yards and 2 touchdowns. Which means his goals for 2018 should be 1,000 receiving yards and a minimum of 5 touchdowns. Those numbers would be on par with some of the other number 1 wide receivers around the National Football League. Although you have to believe that putting together a winning season and making the playoffs would be a much better goal for San Francisco. That won’t be easy especially with the Los Angeles Rams looking like top dog in the NFC West. However if Jimmy Garropolo can keep putting together some magic there’s a chance the scarlet and gold could get in the postseason as a wildcard. From there Goodwin and Garropolo will have to put together a run and try to be the Cinderella of the playoffs. We’ve seen crazier things happen and anything is possible when big time players like Marquise Goodwin and Jimmy Garropolo suit up.
