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."

Why didn't the 49ers draft a WR, TE, or DE? It just worked out that way

By Kirk Larrabee

An ideal situation for any NFL team would be to come out of the NFL Draft having selected the best players on its board at their draft spots that also happened to be at positions of need, but things usually don't fall into place that easily. Such was the case in the 2021 NFL Draft for the San Francisco 49ers, who were able to fill multiple needs with their picks but also had a couple of moments where they came away with players at positions they weren't planning to address due to those players being the top prospects on their board. For anyone wondering why the 49ers didn't add some depth at areas where they could have used it, such as wide receiver, tight end, or EDGE, that's the reason. The 49ers made their selections based on how the draft played out, and as a



Rapoport explains 49ers' thinking when it comes to the No. 3 pick, and why Justin Fields may be out

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported on Sunday night that the San Francisco 49ers' decision regarding the No. 3 overall pick had come down to Mac Jones of Alabama versus Trey Lance of North Dakota State. If accurate, that means Justin Fields of Ohio State is likely out of the picture in the minds of head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch. There was also a report from Todd McShay of ESPN that sources around the league believe that Shanahan is leaning toward Jones, while the 49ers' personnel department is pushing for Lance. That matches up with what

While ESPN's Rob Demovsky claimed the below rumor is false, and that no calls were made, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that the San Francisco 49ers did indeed reach out to the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday to inquire about Aaron Rodgers. Although, Pelissero reports that no formal offer was made. This is NOT true, I'm told by a source with direct knowledge. Repeat NOT true. NO CALLS, per source. https://t.co/qelhNfH3R5— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky)



Richard Sherman hasn't ruled out return to 49ers

Cornerback Richard Sherman remains available. The free agent doesn't know what his NFL future holds, has had teams reach out to him, and hasn't even ruled out a possible return to the San Francisco 49ers. "Obviously, a return to San Francisco isn't out of the cards," Sherman told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. "I've had conversations with Seattle. I've had conversations with the Saints, the Raiders, and we've just got to wait to see how things play out." Things are on pause until the draft is complete. Sherman doesn't expect to see the interest increase until after that, as NFL teams look to add younger defenders on rookie contracts. The 49ers could select a cornerback on Day 2 of
