The San Francisco 49ers were among several teams to meet with Cincinnati wide receiver Devin Gray, according to Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst. He participated in the Bearcats' pro day on Wednesday.

"Receiver Devin Gray timed 4.42s in the forty, 3.98s in the short shuttle, 6.92s 3 cone while touching 36 inches in the vertical jump," wrote Pauline. "Over the past two days, he met with the Pittsburgh Steelers, New Orleans Saints, Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers."

Gray transferred from Sierra College in Rocklin, California. In 2016, he recorded 58 receptions for 860 yards with five touchdowns. Gray finished 2017 as the third-leading receiver for the Bearcats, registering 28 catches for 444 receiving yards with three touchdowns as a senior.

The 49ers have drafted a wide receiver in each of the past 15 years and signed three as undrafted free agents immediately following last year's draft, including Victor Bolden and Kendrick Bourne. The team also invited seven receivers for a rookie minicamp tryout.

ESPN analyst weighs in on 49ers potentially drafting a wide receiver

The San Francisco 49ers will likely add a rookie wide receiver via the draft, and it has nothing to do with Brandon Aiyuk's current contract situation. Deebo Samuel is about as physical a player as you'll find at the position, so wear and tear, along with his significant salary, has to be a concern. Jauan Jennings is slated to become an unrestricted free agent next year. The 49ers have tried to address the position recently, drafting Ronnie Bell in the seventh round last year and Danny Gray in the third round in 2022. While it's too early to judge Bell, Gray has played only 87 offensive snaps as a pro. His career stat line is unimpressive, recording only one reception for 10 yards on seven targets. One ESPN analyst and 49ers fan, Matt Miller, admits to being

If the 49ers draft a wide receiver, don't expect it to be a smaller guy

The San Francisco 49ers are in good shape for 2024 when it comes to the wide receiver position. What that room looks like after this coming season remains to be seen. Most believe the 49ers will give Brandon Aiyuk a new contract around the start of training camp. But there are no guarantees. As it was reported on Friday, Aiyuk unfollowed the 49ers on Instagram, much like Deebo Samuel did two years ago. It seems to be how modern-day players negotiate. It's not necessarily anything to be concerned about, but you never truly know how these things will end. There is still potential that the 49ers could trade the star receiver in the next couple of weeks. If Aiyuk is extended, it

49ers insider believes team may prefer WR Brandon Aiyuk play on fifth-year option

The San Francisco 49ers don't always do things like other NFL teams do. But they are consistent, for the most part. Seemingly every offseason, especially in recent years, a star player has wanted a new contract. From TE George Kittle and LB Fred Warner to WR Deebo Samuel and Edge Nick Bosa, the 49ers have given new contracts, but they have waited until late July-early August (and in Bosa's case—September) to do so, much to the chagrin of those players, who wanted their new deal sooner rather than later. It may not have happened as soon as the players wanted it to, but it has happened. Kittle's contract talks reportedly weren't as smooth as he might have hoped, Samuel famously scrubbed his social media accounts of all things 49ers, and Bosa didn't sign until a few days

Ctrl+Z: 4 key decisions 49ers might "undo" if given the chance

No one is perfect. Each of us makes mistakes. I do for sure. Peruse your way through the many articles I've written for 49ers Webzone and you'll see plenty of mistakes. Whether it's a typo or some prediction I offered that didn't go as I had thought. The San Francisco 49ers are no different. John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have made their share of mistakes. Fortunately for all of us, they hit on more than they miss. But I wonder if we were able to catch them in a moment of complete transparency if they might admit to wanting to hit the Ctrl+Z and "undo" some moves. I doubt they will admit to such mistakes anytime soon, but fear not—I'm here to do it for them. Yes, I could write on the best decisions
