49ers met with CB Tony Brown at Alabama pro day, per report

Mar 8, 2018 at 9:34 AM--

Alabama held its pro day on Wednesday and the San Francisco 49ers were among the numerous teams to meet one-on-one with cornerback Tony Brown over the past 24 hours, according to a report by Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst. The other teams include the Tennessee Titans, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks, Miami Dolphins, and Washington Redskins.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot and 198-pound Brown had a 40-time of 4.35 seconds, a vertical jump of 31.5 inches, a broad jump of 126 inches, completed the three-cone drill in 6.78 seconds, had 14 reps in the bench press, a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.11 seconds, and a 60-yard shuttle time of 11.14 seconds.

Brown recorded 10 tackles in 13 games and two starts as a true freshman for the Crimson Tide in 2014. During his junior year in 2016, he registered 32 tackles, 2.5 for loss, and two interceptions. As a senior, Brown played in all 14 games with one start and compiled 31 tackles, an interception, and two passes defensed.

"He had his issues while at school, being sent home before the team's 2015 bowl game," writes Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, "and then suspended indefinitely by the NCAA for unspecified reasons (reported for failed drug tests). The suspension was limited to the first four games of the 2016 season on appeal."

The 49ers are in need of some help at cornerback. They ended last season with rookie Ahkello Witherspoon and veteran Dontae Johnson as starters. Witherspoon has started just nine NFL games and Johnson, who is scheduled to become a free agent next week, was benched twice late last year.

According to a report by ESPN, the 49ers were in trade talks with the Denver Broncos to potentially acquire Aqib Talib, but the cornerback would prefer to be released and choose his own destination – which preferably includes the New England Patriots. projects that Brown will be selected in round 4 of the NFL Draft.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Brown to Johnson Bademosi, had the following to say in his scouting report:

"Brown is a physical nickel cornerback with a major in run support and a minor in special teams cover talent. Brown has too much tightness in his lower half to match routes and make plays on the ball, but his ability to support the run could lead teams to beef him up and try him at a hybrid linebacker role in sub-packages. Brown is going to run well at the Combine and should be drafted on the third day for his special teams talent alone."

The San Francisco 49ers are in no danger of losing last season's breakout running back, Raheem Mostert, anytime soon. He doesn't become an unrestricted free agent until 2022. Fourth-year wideout Kendrick Bourne, however, is scheduled to become a free agent next year after signing a one-year tender in April. The 49ers have had discussions about contract extensions for both players, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. "I know extensions for Mostert and Bourne have been discussed," Barrows wrote in this week's mailbag

There is no doubt that, based on his contributions toward the end of last season and in the playoffs, Raheem Mostert is grossly underpaid. That's why the San Francisco 49ers running back requested a pay raise this offseason, according to Josina Anderson. Mostert accepted a multi-year deal last offseason. Of course, that was long before his 29-carry, 220-yard, and four-touchdown performance against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. The running back would like to rework the deal, per the report, as an acknowledgment of his increased

Raheem Mostert asking to be 49ers' highest-paid running back, per report

By David Bonilla

News broke on Wednesday that San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has requested a trade after what his agent described as months of unproductive contract talks. Mostert is signed through the 2021 season but will earn a base salary of just $2.575 million this year. Mostert and his agent either want a new deal or want the running back to go to a team that will offer him one. What exactly is Mostert requesting from the 49ers? Is it something completely unreasonable for the team's leading rusher and the player who led all running backs in yards-per-carry last season? It doesn't sound like it. RELATED:
