The Raiders drafted Hurst out of Michigan in 2018 and since then he has been what you might expect from a fifth-round selection. Since coming into the NFL Hurst has 76 tackles, eight sacks, seven passes defensed, one interception and a forced fumble.
He will add depth along the defensive line as the 49ers continue to solidify the unit with just one week left before the 2021 NFL Draft next Thursday.
