49ers to work out USD tight end Ross Dwelley next week, per report

Mar 22, 2018 at 4:26 PM--

While quarterback Johnny Manziel's attempt at an NFL return was the main event at the University of San Diego's pro day on Thursday, scouts had an opportunity to watch other players from the Toreros football team. One of those draft prospects was Ross Dwelley, who caught passes from Manziel during the evaluation.

The San Francisco 49ers are scheduled to hold a private workout with Dwelley next week, according to Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst.

"Dwelley measured 6-6/241 pounds, timed 4.9s in the forty and touched 27.5 inches in the vertical jump," Pauline wrote. "Dwelley, who plays much faster than he times, interviewed with the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans today. The San Francisco 49ers are coming in next week to work him out privately."

Despite missing two games due to a dislocated finger, Dwelley led all FCS tight ends with 10 touchdown receptions last season. It was a total that matched his previous season's effort. Since 2016, Dwelley registered 120 receptions for 1,506 yards with 20 touchdowns, according to Fox Sports.

The 49ers currently have four tight ends on their roster. They are George Kittle, who was a fifth-round draft pick last year, veteran Garrett Celek, Cole Hikutini, who was signed as an undrafted free agent last year, and Cole Wick.

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,

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

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
