The 1987 San Francisco 49ers season was the team's 38th year with the National Football League. In the offseason, the 49ers acquired Steve Young in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The season ended with a loss to the Minnesota Vikings in the divisional round of the playoffs.

OffseasonEdit

When the Buccaneers selected quarterback Vinny Testaverde first overall in the 1987 NFL Draft, Young was traded to the San Francisco 49ers on April 24, 1987. The Buccaneers received 2nd and 4th round draft picks in the trade, which they used to draft Miami linebacker Winston Moss, and Arizona State wide receiver Bruce Hill.

NFL DraftEdit

  • Harris Barton was the first offensive lineman selected in the first round of the NFL Draft by the 49ers since Forrest Blue was selected in 1968.[1]
