49ers having dinner with Kansas TE Ben Johnson, per report

Mar 27, 2018 at 12:20 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers continue their scouting rounds across the country. The team will reportedly take Kansas tight end Ben Johnson to dinner tonight, according to Draft Diamonds. The 49ers were among the 13 NFL teams in attendance at Kansas' pro day on Tuesday morning.


In four seasons with the Jayhawks, the 6-foot-5, 245-pound Johnson had 61 receptions for 670 yards with two touchdowns. In 2017, the pass-catcher and blocker hauled in 30 passes for 363 yards and a touchdown as a senior.

"I think I'm pretty good at blocking," Johnson told KU Sports last year before the start of the collegiate season. "You've got to have that grit when it comes down to putting your hand down on the ground and being able to man up with a D-end… But I also think I've got pretty good hands, too. So that kind of broadens what I can do."

Johnson told Draft Diamonds in December that he compares himself to Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs because he's "not afraid to go up and get it." Johnson grew as a Chiefs fan.

While the San Francisco 49ers are preparing to head on the road for the start of the playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys are preparing to host Kyle Shanahan's squad. Naturally, the last thing the Cowboys want to see is a takeover of their home stadium, which is what we saw at SoFi Stadium during the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. On Tuesday morning, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined 105.3 The Fan and acknowledged that he has no control over who buys the tickets. However, he boasted about the Cowboys having the highest resale ticket prices in the NFL right now, which he feels could help limit the number of opposing fans for the playoff matchup. Although, he also
