Alabama DE Jonathan Allen visiting with the 49ers this week

Apr 11, 2017 at 8:06 AM--

Alabama defensive end Jonathan Allen will be visiting with the San Francisco 49ers this week, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. First, he will visit with the Los Angeles Chargers on Wednesday and then travel to visit the 49ers in Santa Clara. According to Rapoport, Allen has already visited with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans.

Allen had surgeries on both shoulders during his college career, which led to mild arthritis. "Jonathan has really played without symptoms in his shoulders, and it's something that has not affected his performance or function," Alabama team doctor Lyle Cain told Rapoport at the NFL Scouting Combine. "It doesn't have to be treated during the season. And he's had a couple of great years."

The issues with Allen's shoulders did not prevent him from participating in drills at the combine. His numbers are listed below.

In 2016, Allen repeated as first-team All-SEC and won the Chuck Bednarik and Bronco Nagurski Award as the nation's top defender after compiling 69 tackles, with 16 for a loss, and 10.5 sacks. His sack total reached 12 in 2015.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media had the following to say in his scouting report:

"Outstanding leader and athlete with an ability to rush the passer from outside or inside. Has produced against the run and pass thanks to his strength, agility, elite hand usage, and plus footwork. He might not be the cleanest fit inside as a full-time tackle for some teams, but his talent should trump any size concerns. Allen is a likely first-round selection with Pro Bowl potential down the road."

Pass rusher Nick Bosa rejoined his San Francisco 49ers teammates this week. He had been rehabbing and training in Florida with his brother, Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers. Joey typically passes on attending his own team's organized team activities (OTAs). Nick Bosa was never going to hit the practice field with his teammates, but the plan was always to have him around for these two weeks — the last week of OTAs and next week's three-day minicamp. "Yeah, I mean, he can't take part in much because he's still rehabbing too," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters this afternoon, "but he's been here all week, and yeah, he's been good. But he came for a shorter visit than expected." That's because Shanahan canceled the remainder of the

Hugh "The King" McElhenny Was a 49ers Franchise Savior

The San Francisco 49ers were one of three teams from the old All-American Football Conference to join the NFL in 1950. The others were the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Colts. When the schedule was announced, some NFL owners balked about playing in San Francisco because, they claimed, the cost of traveling to the West Coast was too high and that the 49ers' ticket prices were too low. The 49ers charged $3.60 for seats between the 30- and 50-yard line, $2.40 for other reserved seats, $1.80 for general admission, and 50 cents for children under twelve at Kezar Stadium. So then, team owner Tony Morabito hiked the tariff to $3.75, $3, and $2, maintaining 50 cents for youngsters. Still, the 49er prices were the lowest in the league. After a sorry 1-4 exhibition season

Can 49ers Trey Lance Be The First Rookie To Win A Super Bowl As Starting Quarterback?

As hard as it is to believe, no rookie has ever won the Super Bowl as a starting quarterback. You would think that after 55 years of Super Bowls, at least one rookie quarterback would have hoisted the Lombardi Trophy following his team's victory. But it has not happened. In fact, no rookie quarterback has even led his team to the game. None. In 55 years! A few have come close. Only three have led their teams as far as the conference championship game. In 2004, Ben Roethlisberger led the Pittsburgh Steelers to the AFC Championship Game. Mark Sanchez took the New York Jets to the AFC Championship
