    Better Rivals Ep. 321: Best fits for the 49ers in a historic WR draft class

    On this week’s episode of the Better Rivals podcast, we kick off our 2020 draft preview by diving in to a historically good WR class. What do the 49ers look for at the wide receiver position? Who are the best options for the 49ers if they take a WR with the 13th overall pick? And if they choose to wait, who are the best fits later in the first round? All that, plus what we would do if we were the 49ers, ketchup on coffee, and some April Fools fun.

Great podcast

Love the podcast guys, your opinions helps just casual viewers in knowing who's playing well in less obvious positions. Keep up the great work and hope you guys play some Childish Gambino in the future.

Excellent podcast

Love this podcast, listen to it every week. I normally wouldn't single a member of a podcast team out but I'm making an exception because I heard he's gotten some bad reviews. Richard is hilarious, easily the funniest of the trio, anyone that can't see that clearly has no sense of irony.
