49ers among NFL teams at Tennessee pro day

Mar 31, 2017 at 4:24 PM--

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch may have been busy watching quarterback Patrick Mahomes at Texas Tech's pro day on Friday, but that doesn't mean the team didn't have a presence at the University of Tennessee's pro day. According to Rhiannon Potkey of USA TODAY, every NFL team was represented at the Vols' pro day.

24 players worked out in front of NFL teams, including four former Vols and four players from Carson-Newman. Among the prospects were running back Alvin Kamara and edge rusher Derek Barnett.

Barnett was at the NFL Scouting Combine last month but was fighting flu-like symptoms while there. "My energy, I was smiling,'' said Barnett following the pro day. "It felt good to feel like myself, to have some pep in my step going through these drills. This is a dream come true for all of us, trying to get to the NFL."

Robert Meachem was among the former Vols participating on Friday. The receiver played for the New Orleans Saints from 2007 until 2014 and is trying to make his way back onto an NFL roster.

Below is a list of all 24 participants on Friday.

49ers' Fred Warner ranks No. 3 among NFL.com's best off-ball linebackers

NFL Network analyst Bucky Brooks recently ranked his top five off-ball linebackers in the league, and San Francisco 49ers fans may be disappointed to learn that the team's star defender, Fred Warner, was not at the top of the list. He wasn't at No. 2 either. Warner, who signed a five-year, $95 million contract extension last week, came in at No. 3, behind Bobby Wagner of the Seattle Seahawks and Darius Leonard of the Indianapolis Colts. Maybe that will be further motivation for the 24-year-old linebacker, who has many years in front of him. "The All-Pro has become one of the league's most disruptive players as an

PFF names QB among three 49ers training camp battles to watch

It's almost too easy to name the quarterback competition among the upcoming San Francisco 49ers training camp battles to watch. With players set to report to the team's facilities in Santa Clara next week, a lot of eyes will be focused on observing the progress of the No. 3 overall pick — quarterback Trey Lance. Should it be among the most intriguing competitions, though? San Francisco's brass has repeatedly stated that Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starter come Week 1. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in his veteran quarterback. His availability, not his ability, has always been the concern. That doesn't mean the rookie won't try to prove himself a quick study and unseat Garoppolo. "I definitely see it as Jimmy's the

Nick Bosa, Jason Verrett among 49ers players still evaluating vaccine decision

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa briefly paused during a long response to a reporter's question after practice on Thursday. "It's tough with this mask," he said before continuing with his answer. Bosa and cornerback Jason Verrett wore masks while speaking with reporters, quickly indicating that both are among the less than 10 percent of 49ers players who remain unvaccinated. Protocols demand that they wear masks while at the team's facilities — except during practices. If neither gets vaccinated, they will be limited by several league-imposed restrictions this season and have to undergo more frequent COVID testing. "I'm just
