49ers high on Oklahoma State WR Marcell Ateman, per report

Feb 18, 2018 at 1:37 PM--

According to Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst, the San Francisco 49ers are among several receiver-needy teams interested in draft prospect Marcell Ateman, a wide receiver out of Oklahoma State.

While Ateman currently grades as a third-round selection on Draft Analyst's draft board, Pauline believes the receiver's stock will jump with a good showing at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Ateman became a full-time starter for the Cowboys during his junior year in 2015. In 12 starts and 13 game appearances, he registered 45 receptions for 766 yards and five touchdowns that season.

A foot injury forced Ateman to miss the entire 2016 season. In 2017, he started 11 of his 13 game appearances and registered 59 catches for 1,156 yards (19.6 yards per catch average) and eight touchdowns, which earned him second-team All-Big 12 honors.

"Ateman has been working with former Olympic gold medalist Michael Johnson on his speed and 40 starts in Dallas," writes Pauline. "Johnson has been praising Ateman's work ethic to teams he's spoken with. I'm told the receiver-needy San Francisco 49ers are one of several teams high on Ateman."

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo hoping for a 'quick resolution' once healthy, per report

By David Bonilla

There has been some chatter that the San Francisco 49ers might be willing to hold onto Jimmy Garoppolo if they can't find a trade partner for the veteran quarterback or if an interested team tries to lowball the Niners. San Francisco had hoped to trade Garoppolo in March. The quarterback undergoing shoulder surgery halted all trade talks. Then the number of quarterback-needy teams greatly diminished. 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have repeatedly indicated that they expect Garoppolo to be healthy enough to throw again by early July. We're almost to that point. On Saturday, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that Garoppolo's

Another NFL wide receiver has seen his bank account grow this offseason. Earlier today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Washington Commanders are signing Terry McLaurin to a three-year extension worth up to $71 million in new money with $53.2 million guaranteed. That's nearly $23.7 million annually in potential new cash and about $17.7 million in new guaranteed money. Meanwhile, everyone is still waiting to see how the San Francisco 49ers resolve their situation with their star wideout, Deebo Samuel. It wasn't that long ago that he requested to be traded after watching several of his peers earn big paydays this offseason. Many, including star tight end George Kittle,

NFL analyst believes 49ers' offensive line has "high-end potential"

The San Francisco 49ers have faced some serious roster turnover with their offensive line, as left guard Laken Tomlinson went to the New York Jets in free agency, while center Alex Mack chose to retire after one season with the organization. In addition, right tackle Mike McGlinchey is coming off a torn quadriceps injury that sidelined him for the second half of the 2021 NFL season, although head coach Kyle Shanahan believes the Notre Dame product should be ready for training camp. Earlier this week, PFF's Mike Renner conducted his offensive line rankings for 2022 with several tiers: Minor or no weaknesses(tier 1), high floor(tier 2), high-end potential(tier 3), at

Bleacher Report: 49ers probably regret not extending Deebo Samuel earlier

By David Bonilla

Bleacher Report's Kristopher Knox recently listed one offseason regret for each NFL team (h/t Niners Noise). That regret for the Kansas City Chiefs was letting Charvarius Ward depart. In March, the cornerback signed a three-year, $40.5 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers, forcing the Chiefs to use a first-round pick on Trent McDuffie. What about the regret for the 49ers, though? Is it the complicated situation with Jimmy Garoppolo, the veteran quarterback they would love to trade but can't? Is it not directly shooting
