Texas-El Paso RB Aaron Jones had private workout with 49ers

Mar 28, 2017 at 6:48 PM--

University of Texas-El Paso RB Aaron Jones had a private workout with the San Francisco 49ers, per Jared Tokarz of NFL Draft Insider.

During his college career with the Miners, Jones carried the football 658 times for 4,114 yards and 33 touchdowns. The three-year starter had his best year in 2016, during which he had 229 carries for 1,773 yards and 17 touchdowns. He also had 28 receptions for 233 yards last season. In 2015, he played in only two games due to a torn ligament in his left ankle.

Jones is the all-time leading rusher for the University of Texas-El Paso. He was just the third UTEP running back to reach 3,000 career rushing yards and the third player in school history to have multiple 1,000-yard seasons.

"This process has shown me there is always room for improvement and to continue to work hard and stay humble, you have to go get what you want," Jones said in 2016 regarding the recovery from his ankle injury. "It's also shown me and taught me how to become a better leader."

The Aaron Rodgers to San Francisco 49ers talk is starting early. Maybe nearly a year early. First, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk explored the idea of the future Hall of Famer joining his hometown team and the organization that passed him up in 2005 for Alex Smith. Now, ESPN's First Take is joining the discussion. Rodgers' days in Green Bay may be numbered after the team selected Jordan Love in the first round of April's draft. After enduring over a month of discussion earlier this offseason surrounding Tom Brady potentially replacing Jimmy Garoppolo in San Francisco, it seems like fans might have to put up with talk about the next possible Garoppolo replacement.

How do you think the San Francisco 49ers offseason has gone from a personnel perspective? The team lost a few veteran leaders in defensive tackle DeForest Buckner, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, and offensive tackle Joe Staley. The first was traded away, so it wasn't the player's decision to leave. The second opted to sign with the New Orleans Saints in free agency. The third retired.
