49ers will hold private workout for New Hampshire RB Dalton Crossan

Apr 7, 2017 at 9:59 AM--

University of New Hampshire running back Dalton Crossan will have a private workout with the San Francisco 49ers, per Jordan Raanan of ESPN.

Recruited as a lacrosse player in high school, Crossan turned down Michigan and Notre Dame for the opportunity to play football at New Hampshire. During four seasons with the Wildcats, he complied 5,189 all-purpose yards and scored 27 rushing touchdowns, eight receiving touchdowns, and a touchdown as a returner on special teams.

In 2016, Crossan had 1,281 yards and 10 touchdowns while averaging 5.5 yards per carry rushing the football.

Adding to running back and returner, Crossan also lined up as a slot receiver for New Hampshire – showing that he has versatility. At his pro day, he ran a 4.5-second 40-yard dash and finished the 20-yard shuffle in 4.06 seconds. That 20-yard shuffle time would have been the fastest at the NFL Combine had he been invited.

"I wouldn't say getting drafted is a goal of mine, but just as long as I get an opportunity to sign an NFL contract and make a 53-man roster, I'll be thrilled to have an opportunity to contribute," Crossan has said.

Other teams showing interest in the running back are the Seattle Seahawks, New York Giants, and New England Patriots.

The San Francisco 49ers, and every other NFL team, can finally hold tryouts with prospective additions to their rosters. The league informed teams on Tuesday that the ban on tryouts has been lifted, effective immediately, according to a report from NFL Media. Tryouts were prohibited due to health concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. NFL teams were only allowed to bring players in for physicals, and even that required multiple tests for COVID-19. Players will still have to undergo testing, undergoing the process three times, with each returning negative before taking part in a workout. Players who were on an NFL roster within 24 hours

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider recently admitted that San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle was among the reasons why the division rivals gave up a haul to acquire safety Jamal Adams. "But you have to have so much speed on the back, especially when we're playing against Kyler Murray and George Kittle and Robert Woods and all these guys that seem like they are just running all over the place," Schneider told Peter King of NBC Sports. "You've got to have as much speed on the field. So adding a guy like Jamal who has that versatility to play down in the box and play in the hole and play man coverage is really important to us." The

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan didn't offer an update on the status of George Kittle's contract extension. That is, other than saying the team continues to work diligently with the tight end's camp and is optimistic that a deal will get done. "We don't have to say how important George is to us, and not only [him] being the best tight end, to me, in the league but also the type of person he is," Shanahan said during a 30-minute-long video press conference on Monday. "We're doing everything we can to get that done. I do feel good about it." There is no doubt that whatever deal results from the negotiations will be the largest ever for a tight end, perhaps shattering the current market value for the position by a
