Logan Ryan Boosts 49ers’ Defense

The San Francisco 49ers have an upcoming mentality on both sides of the football, and Logan Ryan is the next surefire starter. If rookie S Ji’Ayir Brown (knee) can’t play in Week 17, the veteran prospect is the most likely candidate to see starting time.

Ryan was brought in after special teams ace George Odum and All-Pro Talanoa Hufanga suffered season-ending injuries. injuries Now with the fifth pick, San Francisco is confident Ryan can step up next to Tashaun Gipson, especially given his pedigree on defense.

“Logan did a great job, I was excited when we got him,” 49ers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks said Thursday. “I knew at one point he was going to do a great job helping us.” Wilks went on to talk about how Wednesday’s practice went with Ryan in the starting lineup.

The veteran has been calling out left and right, proving that despite his 32-year-old age, he hasn’t gone unnoticed. That communication is all Wilks and defensive captain Fred Warner are looking for, talking about it long after practice. – I spoke to Fred about it yesterday from the field.

It’s like “Did you know and see Logan?” He replies, “Yeah man, he’s talking.” And that’s a great sign of a safety, of his communication skills, especially when you get a new guy in there and he steps up and does those things,” Wilks said. “So I like having him around.

He’s got skin on the wall, as I call it. He’s been around the league for a while and played in a couple of Super Bowls. So he understands how big we are right now. This. year. Logan Ryan has 744 combined tackles, 98 pass breakups and 13 sacks in his 11-year career so far.

While he may no longer be at his physical peak, his I.Q. and willingness to do the dirty work speaks volumes for a team like the 49ers. “[He’s] a team player, dedicated. And then also realizing that’s the norm here. We always talk about a lot of forces working together, none bigger than the real reason. So the guys come in and they adapt to our way . of doing things and that’s the way he is. So again, I really like him as a player and as a person,” added Wilks.
