The San Francisco 49ers got one of the most explosive players on Earth last season.
Just when everybody thought he was unavailable — or at least not gettable at a reasonable price — GM John Lynch traded for Christian McCaffrey, perhaps the best running back in the game.
Injuries and the Carolina Panthers had held McCaffrey back in the early stages of his career, but his physical talent and skills were just too big to overlook in this potential transaction.
As a matter of fact, it’s more than evident that McCaffrey was born to dominate on Sundays, as it showed in a hilarious and adorable clip of a young McCaffrey juking out mascots, scoring a touchdown, and rocking an epic celebration.
Needless to say, plenty of fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on this now-viral clip.
Who caught that football? I'll give you 100k rn

Even at a young age, you could see his lateral quickness and how he knew to make the most of his center of gravity.
He wasn’t the biggest guy on the field by any means, but he was as sneaky, mobile, and elusive as he is nowadays.
On top of that, he might have the best hands in all of the league for players at his position, which is why he’s also efficient lining up wide.
The Niners have so many versatile weapons that Kyle Shanahan can pretty much come up with anything he wants on offense, and trading for McCaffrey might’ve been reason enough for Lynch to get that contract extension.NEXT: Former Player Raves About 1 NFC Team's Level Of Play
