UMass WR Jalen Williams worked out for 49ers

University of Massachusetts WR Jalen Williams worked out for the San Francisco 49ers after his pro day at McGuirk Stadium on March 23, according to NFL Draft Diamonds.

The 6-foot-3, 208-pound UMass wide receiver has caught 10 touchdown passes from his quarterback over two seasons, which included 20 games. He caught 47 passes for 827 yards during those games.

"I can play outside and inside, I will play anywhere they need me to honestly," Williams recently told the Philly Sports Network. "I know that sounds cliché, but I really will, I will play all special teams, I love special teams. If you want to be a college player, you need to do special teams, so I loved it.

I really love to go over the middle, I have no problem playing in traffic. I am a bigger guy and I work on my strength a lot in order to be prepared to take a hit and to really deliver one. I want to go over the middle and make the play, catch the ball on third and long, I want to be the guy that my coach, my quarterback, my whole team can count on, to make the play we need to continue a drive."

Williams was arrested in September of 2015 and charged with breaking and entering a car and larceny. The incident resulted in Williams being suspended. However, those charges were dropped the following June once he completed his probation period. Williams said he was innocent and was stopped because he fit the description of a suspect who local police were looking for.

NFL Draft Diamonds reports that Williams will attend the local pro day of the Atlanta Falcons and that the New York Giants have also shown interest in the receiver.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the New York Jets on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Kittle suffered the injury just before halftime during Week 1's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Cornerback Jason Verrett is the only other 49ers player who has officially been ruled "out" — other than those on injury lists. Defensive end Dee Ford experienced some neck stiffness this week and underwent further tests. He has been listed as "questionable" to play against the Jets. On the Jets' side, wide receiver Jamison Crowder has been ruled out due to a hamstring injury.

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert is probably looking forward to running to the left side this season. That's where new offensive tackle Trent Williams, a 320-pound behemoth, will line up. Don't let his size fool you. The 49ers' newest big-man is one of the most athletic offensive linemen in the league and can get downfield in a hurry, if needed. That has Mostert excited for the possibilities. "That big guy, he came in here, and he's putting on a show," Mostert told reporters on Monday. "The way he moves and stuff like that, you can't teach that with any other O-lineman. He's definitely a difference-maker and a guy that we can definitely rely on." Williams played three seasons for Kyle Shanahan when the 49ers head coach was the

There wasn't a whole lot of good to take away from the San Francisco 49ers' 24-20 defeat against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon, and fans may not be ready to look at that game yet. Images of quarterback Kyler Murray evading 49ers defenders or wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins torching defensive backs may still be fresh in your minds. But how about just one memorable play? And maybe not the one you would first expect. No, it's not running back Raheem Mostert reaching a speed of nearly 23 MPH in a 76-yard touchdown run. It's a block by new 49ers left tackle Trent Williams, who absolutely obliterated Cardinals linebacker Jordan Hicks on an end-around run
