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 were reportedly interested in signing Andy Dalton this offseason. The former Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys quarterback ended up signing a one-year, $10 million deal with the Chicago Bears, where he will help mentor rookie Justin Fields. That was too pricey for the 49ers, apparently, According to analyst Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network, head coach Kyle Shanahan really wanted to add Dalton and wasn't happy when the veteran quarterback slipped through the 49ers' fingertips. "They wanted to sign Andy Dalton in free agency as their veteran quarterback and then trade (Jimmy) Garoppolo and draft Lance,"



Peter King betting a healthy Jimmy Garoppolo can hold off 49ers rookie Trey Lance

Peter King of NBC Sports — and everyone else really — is giving Jimmy Garoppolo a lot of credit this offseason for saying and doing all the right things, even as his team brought in his replacement. Garoppolo has been the unchallenged starter since his first game appearance after being traded from New England to San Francisco in 2017. He was seen as the quarterback of the future, and in the ensuing offseason, was handed a contract that solidified that. Three years later, his successor is on the roster. The 49ers traded up to No. 3 overall to select Trey Lance of North Dakota State. Understandably, Garoppolo wasn't happy about the decision. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have been honest with their veteran

Former 49ers GM likes Trey Lance over Zach Wilson

Scot McCloughan spent two seasons as the San Francisco 49ers general manager, helping build the roster eventually taken over by Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh. Before that, he was the team's VP of personnel. Matt Barrows of The Athletic spoke with McCloughan to get his opinion of his former team's most recent draft class. While his pre-draft grades had Zach Wilson, whom the New York Jets selected at No. 2, rated higher than Trey Lance, the 49ers' pick, McCloughan would have personally selected Lance over Wilson. He wouldn't have, however, traded two future first-round picks to move up to get him. The inexperience at North Dakota State and the level of competition created too many unknowns. But personally, he still liked Lance more than
