8:36 pm
threat of any rain or snow making its way on shore. so we'll keep those temperatures in the 50's. if you're headed there, fact, all the way up to 70 degrees. warmer in reno tomorrow. now, if you plan on sticking around for the weekend, changes in the weather pattern as we head toward the beginning of next week. this weekend looks good with temperatures hovering in the upper 50's. but on monday, another cold front dives in likely bring a few clouds and getting a little gusty across the mountain tops. if you're heading that direction or coming back on monday. alright, storm clouds love to get some of the storms rolling in right now. lowers forecast model shows the rain focus now up in the pacific northwest. the jet stream start lifting that pretty typical this time of year. they're going to be a lot of rain up there. unfortunately, we're not going to get anything here. just some clouds, some low clouds and fog that on shore breeze monday, another one comes through. i think that will help to kick up the winds again by monday as well. and then the possibility of maybe a little rain, keep your fingers crossed for that. that's really iffy. some long right forecast, though. but next few days looking very nice. enjoy the sunshine and warmer weather this weekend.

8:42 pm
8:43 pm
8:44 pm
>> and now kron 4 sports from the 18 t fiber sports desk. >> hey, deebo samuel is still 49 or so. the nfl draft must be going pretty well for san francisco and by the way, they also finally got to draft some players today in the second and 3rd rounds, the first player to become a 49 or in this year's draft. well, no big surprise us pass rusher san francisco picked up usc edge, been tre jackson. jackson played 3 seasons for the trojans in his career there. he played in 27 games, racking up 103 tackles. 25 tackles for loss and 12 and a half sacks. you need all pac 12 0nd team in each of his 3 seasons. but now he's a pro
8:45 pm
and his life is forever changed. >> it felt like. i walked outside of my body on that can believe it. my whole life, you know, was dedicated for this moment. everything's been i've never, you know, done anything else are always done things that i need do to come to this place. but still at that point, you never really if you're able to go. so it's still like a one one once once in a lifetime opportunity and i just can't it's it's par. >> and we go now live to las vegas where andrew martin is standing by. what are your thoughts, andrew, on jackson going to the you know, kate, i like the pick. as you said, the forty-niners needed an edge rusher. they got a guy who was a three-year starter at usc. he is a pass rushing specialist. he is athletic 6, 3, 254 pounds and >> he's just the right fit for
8:46 pm
what they need. now, you mention obviously in your lead-in to what he had to say about deebo samuel still being a 49 or maybe that's why the forty-niners didn't take a wide receiver with that selection and they waited until the 3rd round to get danny gray out of smu. and by the way, that kid is fast. he ran a 4. >> 3, 3, 40. so whether or not you have people standing the team when the season starts, you get a guy that you probably can't overthrow, whether you're jimmy garoppolo or trey lance. hopefully that situation gets sorted out pretty soon. >> yeah, i think a lot of forty-niners fans are waiting with baited breath for that one. let's switch gears. talk about the raiders really quickly. they had to wait until the 3rd round to make their pick ended up drafting an interior offensive lineman. dylan par him out of memphis. they took him with the 90th picked. you think you someone who can make an immediate impact for the raiders? >> i to k because he's really for celebs looking up. these starts that he had a different positions for you. 28 at left guard 12 at right guard 11 at right tackle. so that's the definition of versatility.
8:47 pm
he's probably going to play center at the nfl level. what i find interesting about that pick is so the draft here in las vegas is being held in, of course, vegas, the home of the raiders. they did not have a pick in the first round or the second round because of the devontae adams deal and they moved back in the 3rd round was supposed to pick 86. they will back a couple of spots in a trade with tennessee with that of taking a quarterback, billy willison with the pick that would have gone to the raiders. and what's interesting about that is there were no quarterbacks taken in the second round and between willis and kenny pickett, we went about 50 selections that actually take effect has been riddled with first. but between the league will is being here in las vegas and kenny pickett not being here. it was a run on quarterbacks in round 3, but not before that. so i just found it interesting the trade that the raiders made turned out to be a quarterback for another yeah. a new regime in vegas, right? interesting decisions being made over there. other forty-niners question for you. they made a move that might be a bit of a surprise. they took a running back in the 3rd round. that
8:48 pm
being. >> ty price, davis from lsu with the 93rd overall pick. he is a big physical guy. how do you think he fits into the forty-niners backfield? >> so he's 1000 yard rush for more than 1000 yard. his junior season, but only 6 touchdowns at lsu from the running back position. obviously what i find interesting here is that a crowded backfield right now the niners took a running back in the 3rd round last year in so between elijah mitchell, trey sermon, wilson, hasty and help this kid. that's a lot of guys were by for just one football on the team. so i don't know how this will translate when they all get you know, to to fall camp. but i can tell you this skate, there will obviously be competition battle that, as they say, will just push to make everybody better. but i was a bit surprised that went running back at that spot. it was a lot of other people. i think we did think that they would take a right to sue some point. like you mentioned, danny gray out of smu that 100th overall pick. >> how do you think he fits in? what are your thoughts on how contribute? yes. again,
8:49 pm
he's just really fast. that was the last pick of the 3rd round. everything we keep reading is his best. his best, best. this was a draft to be a wide receiver in the draft. of course, not over yet. rounds 2, 3 are, but in the first round or 6 guys taken out of the wide receiver position, 7 the second round of. so if you're a wide receiver, it's a good track for you and getting great. >> even though he went to smu, which is not known as a hotbed for producing wide receiver talent, he's fast and that put him on a lot of people's radars. and so i think he can fit in very nicely with the forty-niners. obviously the most annual situation is to be sorted out first. but the niners have some weapons and you never want to turn down a guy who can outrun everybody else on the field. >> yeah, i think that's a pretty good thing. no matter which way you look at it and do some great insights. thank you so try not to have too much fun down in vegas, but maybe squeeze in a little bit while you're a busy with all those will talk to you later. >> all right. how about some basketball? the warriors back
