Chris Owusu to 49ers: Video Highlights, Scouting Report and Analysis
Chris Owusu is one of the better all-around receiver/return specialists in the draft. He was knocked out pretty heavily in the Oregon State game in early November, and missed a few games after that with a head injury.
Owusu is one of Stanford's few three-year starters and played in a pro scheme. He should be able to make an instant impact for San Francisco, which signed him as an undrafted free agent, according to a report by CBS Sports.

National Football Post's Wes Bunting breaks down Owusu's strengths here:
Knows how to keep himself clean and will get physical vs. the jam. Is a natural starter who accelerates quickly down the field and can create initial separation behind defenders. Possesses good ball skills and awareness when asked to locate and run, is willing to go up and high point the play and is above average for his size in jump ball situations.
Bunting breaks down his weaknesses here:
Is tighter in the hips, but displays enough short area quickness off the line and with good use of his hands to keep defenders from getting into his frame and avoiding the press... Isn't real shifty in tight areas and lacks the wiggle to routinely breakdown defenders and make a man miss.
Owusu could start as a return specialist and special-teamer early, and progress as far as a starter eventually. He needs to show he is over his head injuries, though, and that could be his only true long-term hindrance.
