49ers met with wide receiver Vyncint Smith from Limestone College

Mar 29, 2018 at 5:35 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are one of the teams that have met with Division II wide receiver Vyncint Smith of Limestone College, according to NFL Draft Bible. NFL teams started to take notice of Smith after he ran a 4.36-second 40-yard dash at South Carolina's pro day on March 20. He also had a vertical leap of 39.5 inches and a 10-foot-10 broad jump, as reported by Gil Brandt of NFL.com.

Had he been invited, Smith's recorded 40-time would have been the seventh-fastest of the NFL Scouting Combine this year.

"[The NFL teams] all liked my numbers," Smith said following South Carolina's pro day via The State. "I had to have my numbers match what my film showed. Playing at a lower level, they wanted to make sure everything looks how it looks on film. I think I did that very well. I am hearing (I will join a team) somewhere on the third day, whether I get drafted or picked up right after the draft, but definitely getting a chance."

Smith, who measured in at 6-foot-2 and 197 pounds, has worked out for the Dallas Cowboys, plans to work out for the Atlanta Falcons, has met with the Minnesota Vikings, and has a visit lined up with the New York Jets.

In four seasons with Limestone College, Smith registered 153 receptions for 2,371 yards with 11 touchdowns, according to Hero Sports. His best season came in 2017 when he caught 49 passes for 849 yards with three touchdowns.

The San Francisco 49ers are heading back to the playoffs for the first time since their 2019 Super Bowl run after a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory against the NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers were a 13-3 powerhouse in 2019, earning the #1 seed and a first-round bye, but this 2021 version, a 10-game winner and the 6th seed, may actually be better positioned to win it all than the 2019 squad. Let's compare the offensive position groups from each season to see who has the edge.

49ers and Trey Lance Have Some Work to Do

Rookie quarterback Trey Lance got his second career start Sunday against the Houston Texans and came away with a convincing win. Lance was selected third overall in the 2021 NFL draft and is the heir to the throne as the future leader of the San Francisco 49ers. Sunday's matchup started a little rocky for the 49ers. It seemed there was a slight disconnect between Lance and head coach Kyle Shanahan early on. Kyle Shanahan told the CBS commentators that he's still learning how to call plays for Trey Lance and that it's going to be a process.Pretty clear that he didn't want to deal with that process in

14 'shaky' observations from the 49ers win over the Texans

The San Francisco 49ers were in a must-win situation. A loss to the Houston Texans would make a postseason berth much more difficult. And though the first half didn't exactly give fans a lot of confidence, the 49ers came back strong in the second half to win the game, 23-7. The team started off shaky, and the quarterback looked shaky for a while, but the 49ers (and that rookie quarterback) made enough plays in the end. Here are my 14 shaky observations from the 49ers win on Sunday: In case you hadn't heard, rookie quarterback Trey Lance made his second career start. He recorded his very first win as a starting quarterback. Lance looked like a rookie making only his second start. He looked lost at times, and made some poor decisions. But that's
