Louisiana Tech WR Carlos Henderson meets with 49ers

Mar 21, 2017 at 6:39 PM--


Almost half a dozen NFL receivers coaches were on hand at Louisiana Tech's pro day on Tuesday to watch the Bulldogs duo of Carlos Henderson and Trent Taylor, per Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst.

"Both players stood on their combine testing marks but participated in position drills and each of them caught the ball well," Pauline wrote.

Representatives for the 49ers were among those who met with Henderson. "Henderson is catching fire on draft boards," Pauline continued. "He met with the San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals and New Orleans Saints last night."

As a junior, the 5-foot-11 receiver was named the Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year and Special Teams Player of the Year. He had 82 receptions for 1,535 yards and 19 touchdowns. On special teams for the Bulldogs, Henderson had 805 kick return yards and two touchdowns.

"One-year superstar who delivered monster numbers at Louisiana Tech this year before leaving school early," writes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein. "Plays outside for the Bulldogs, but a little smaller than most teams will like. Henderson excels on catch-and-go throws and nine routes. He lacks the route running to come in and be an effective threat right away, but his kick return ability could get him early work."

49ers-Eagles: Goal line stand turns the tide after shaky 49ers start

If there was one significant turning point in the San Francisco 49ers' 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, it was most likely the unexpected goal line stand members of the defense produced after a 91-yard pass put their backs against the wall in the second quarter. Down 3-0 to the Eagles with just over seven minutes remaining in the half, the 49ers had a long field behind them after a punt from Mitch Wishnowsky pinned the Eagles at their own three-yard line. But on the first play after the punt, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts went deep for wide receiver Quez Watkins, who went for 91 yards before being brought down by safety Jaquiski Tartt and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir at the 49ers' six-yard line.

The San Francisco 49ers defense should be much improved with the returns of edge rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford. Both are coming off significant injuries, missing most of last season. Ford appeared in just one game before a back injury sidelined him. Bosa's 2020 campaign ended with an ACL injury during Week 2. Earlier this week, Ford said he expects to be on a pitch count during Sunday's regular-season opener against the Detroit Lions. That's not uncommon for players coming off an injury, and the veteran pass rusher hasn't been an every-down player during his time with the 49ers, even when he was healthier. Instead, Ford mostly went onto the field during situational downs,



Kocurek excited for return of Nick Bosa, Dee Ford after 49ers pass rushers reached 'lowest of lows'

It has been a rigorous offseason for San Francisco 49ers pass rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford. Both exited last season early due to injuries. First, a back injury sidelined Ford after Week 1. Then, during Week 2, Bosa exited after suffering a torn ACL on that awful MetLife Stadium field. What followed were two hellacious comebacks. But, the good news is that the end is in sight. Bosa and Ford will retake the field when the Niners open their season against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday. Bosa showed off videos during his rehab, and the 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year looked ahead of schedule during the process. Bosa's coaches never questioned the defensive end's work ethic. They know the pass rusher can accomplish whatever he sets his mind



Dan Campbell's admission reveals how Trey Lance is impacting Lions' prep work for 49ers

If the San Francisco 49ers had not drafted Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall pick, the Detroit Lions probably wouldn't be too worried about whoever was backing up Jimmy Garoppolo, assuming Garoppolo remained with the team. Instead, the Lions would be focused on stopping the veteran quarterback and him alone. There wouldn't be many thoughts about Nate Sudfeld or whoever sits behind him on the depth chart. The Niners did draft Lance, though. Then head coach Kyle Shanahan showed off an unorthodox game plan in the team's preseason finale against the Las Vegas Raiders, swapping between Garoppolo and Lance in the middle of drives. Maybe it was just to give Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell something to think about as he prepared for his Week 1 matchup against the 49ers. If that
