San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk had a penchant for the spotlight while at Arizona State, according to his former head coach Herm Edwards. 'When the lights are the brightest, he runs to the middle of the field,' Edwards said. 'He doesn't run to the shadows. He likes competition. ... 'He did a great job when he was called upon to make big plays. In big moments in games, he always showed up for us.'
Huddle Up: Aiyuk is expected to start from Day 1 opposite sophomore WR Deebo Samuel, and he'll be the third option in the passing game behind Samuel and TE George Kittle. He should receive plenty of work after catching 65 passes for 1,192 yards and eight touchdowns as the No. 1 option at Arizona State last year.

San Francisco 49ers first-round pick WR Brandon Aiyuk, whom the team selected at No. 25 overall, was a player they would have taken at 13th overall if they weren't able to trade down, according to general manager John Lynch.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk will be among the WR5 mix that could soar higher as draft season beckons.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk should be able to contribute in the passing game right away and may also be used as a kick and punt returner during his rookie season.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk probably will be at least the No. 3 receiver for the 49ers this upcoming season and likely will receive a solid amount of targets. Fantasy players can consider taking Aiyuk in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.
