The San Francisco 49ers, who selected twice in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, received another first-round draft pick — Trent Williams, the fourth pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

After disgruntled seven-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle Trent Williams declined a trade that would have sent him to the Minnesota Vikings, the San Francisco 49ers stepped in and acquired him instead.

On the third day of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Niners sent a 2020 fifth-rounder and 2021 third-rounder in exchange for the 10-year veteran from the University of Oklahoma.

No other Oklahoma product has more Pro Bowls than Williams, and he will be bringing a veteran presence to the 49ers. San Francisco is receiving a rested 31-year-old, who sat out the 2019 season due to several disagreements he had with the Washington Redskins organization.

The strong 49ers offense will be adding another one of the NFL Top 100 — Williams was ranked No. 81 in the 2019 rankings. San Francisco’s offensive line allowed just 36 sacks last season.

However, this number was not among the best 10 teams in the NFL in 2019. The addition of Williams will help improve Jimmy Garoppolo‘s amount of time in the pocket.

Just one year after the falling to the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl, the Niners are looking for a way to boost themselves.

With two-time Super Bowl Champion Garoppolo at the helm, the 49ers have added wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk (first round) along with Williams. They also added offensive tackle Colton McKivitz (fifth round), tight end Charlie Woerner (sixth round), and wide receiver Jauan Jennings (seventh round).

San Francisco’s all-systems-go approach to its offense over the course of the three days of the 2020 NFL Draft has been impressive. The trade and the picks may be a result of only scoring two touchdowns in the Super Bowl loss, but the fact is the 49ers are now a better team.

As long as Richard Sherman and Williams can get along, then the 49ers offense will be a stronger force in 2020. It appears that Sherman is now understanding of the situation, as he jokes with Williams on Twitter.

The new-look 49ers have more firepower on offense, and they will look to be back in the Super Bowl again in February 2021.
