Javon Kinlaw
22-Year-Old Defensive TackleDT
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Selected with the 14th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Kinlaw will have big shoes to fill replacing DeForest Buckner on the interior of San Francisco's dominant defensive line. Unlike his predecessor, the South Carolina product is more of a run-stuffing bull rusher who is unlikely to post the near double-digit sack totals the team was accustomed to receiving from Buckner. For that reason, Kinlaw is unlikely to be an impact IDP player unless he can somehow generate gaudy tackle totals, which is difficult to do at the defensive tackle position. Read Past Outlooks

Kinlaw and the 49ers officially to terms on a four-year contract Friday, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.
Kinlaw was selected by the 49ers with the 14th overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft. They took him with the same pick they got from the Colts in exchange for star defensive tackle DeForest Buckner. The rookie certainly has big shoes to fill, but he's a much more affordable option than Buckner for San Francisco right now. The South Carolina product checks in at 6-foot-5, 324 pounds, and he figures to start right away on the line.
