NFL Draft: Ricky Pearsall selected 31st overall by San Fransisco 49ers

Florida Gators receiver Ricky Pearsall has been selected 31st overall by the San Franscisco 49ers in the 2024 NFL Draft.

After transferring from Arizona State in 2022, Pearsall set career highs in yards (661) and touchdowns (5) in his first season with the Gators. The 6’1, 190-pound receiver returned to Gainesville for one final season in effort to boost his NFL Draft value.

Pearsall logged 965 yards and four touchdowns in 2023, falling short of becoming the first Florida receiver since Taylor Jacobs in 2002 to reach the 1,000-yard milestone.


While Pearsall’s tape speaks for itself, his dominant NFL combine shot him up draft boards across the league.
