Looking at PFF rankings for running backs last season, McKinnon actually ranks as the eighth-highest graded back overall with a grade of 84.6.
McKinnon is a solid receiver out of the backfield and a adequate pass blocker as well, but he has never surpassed 160 carriers in a season, so the Niners are taking a gamble that he can handle the workload.
After four years in a part-time, fill-in role for Minnesota, McKinnon has parlayed his explosiveness into a very nice $30 million deal.
McKinnon thanked the Vikings' organization and his former teammates in a series of tweets Wednesday.
McKinnon (25 years old, 5-9, 205), who played college football at Georgia Southern, was a third-round draft pick by the Vikings in 2014.
The Vikings' starter at running back in 2018 is expected to be Dalvin Cook, who suffered a season-ending torn ACL in the fourth game last season. Still, he averaged 3.4 yards per carry. He has rushed for 1,918 yards with an average of 4.0 yards per carry, has 142 catches for 984 yards, and has scored 12 touchdowns.

Schrager was the first person to report on Wednesday morning that McKinnon meant to sign with the 49ers.
After missing out on the top dual-threat running back free agency had to offer, the San Francisco 49ers were successful in signing the next-best free agent on the market.
It appears as though McKinnon may have found that bigger role he was talking about a couple of months back.
