49ers worked out Clemson TE Jordan Leggett

Mar 24, 2017 at 2:52 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers and Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson had a semi-private workout on Wednesday with one other team. Tight end Jordan Leggett was also part of that workout, per Clemson sports reporter Dan Hope.


Other players who participated in the workout were wide receivers Artavis Scott and Germone Hopper.

Leggett played in 10 games as a true freshman in 2013 and had 10 receptions for 176 yards and two touchdowns. In 2014, he started in seven of 11 games played while recording 14 receptions for 161 yards and one touchdown.

In 2015, he was a finalist for the John Mackey Award after catching 40 passes for 525 yards and eight touchdowns. Leggett caught 46 passes for 736 yards and seven touchdowns in 2016 on his way to a national championship.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media had the following to say in his scouting report:

"Has elite size for the position, but his motor and effort leave a lot to be desired. Despite his size, might not have the attitude necessary to be an in-line blocker on the NFL level. Tape shows a route-runner who could struggle to uncover against quality man coverage. Leggett has traits and talent, but his production was helped along by Clemson's system. Will need a more ramped-up motor to reach his potential."

49ers TE Jordan Reed steps up with his biggest performance since 2018 in George Kittle's absence

With All-Pro tight end George Kittle sidelined with a knee issue and a number of wide receivers dealing with injuries of their own, the 49ers needed someone to step up and carry the weight in the pass-catching department against the New York Jets on Sunday. Needless to say, veteran tight end Jordan Reed answered the call in a big way. Given his extensive injury history, it was hard to know what to expect from Reed after he signed with the 49ers in August. Reed missed the entire 2019 season after sustaining the seventh known concussion of his career and was limited to 65 total games over his first seven NFL seasons. But after being brought along slowly during training camp, Reed began to show signs of still being the type of player he was earlier in his career
