The San Francisco 49ers reportedly worked out two SMU offensive lineman this week, according to the Sacramento Bee. The first was center Evan Brown, who has experience at guard, and the second is a converted defensive lineman, Mason Gentry.

Brown (6-2, 307) impressed during SMU's pro day, posting a 4.97-second 40-time, 36-inch vertical leap, and bench pressing 225 pounds 36 times. He started 13 games at center as a senior for the Mustangs in 2017 on an offense that ranked 12th in the nation in scoring, 15th in total offense, and 19th in passing. As a junior, he started all 12 games at center for SMU and started 12 games at right guard as a sophomore in 2015.

Gentry (6-6, 310) posted a 5.14-second 40-time and 28 repetitions on the bench press at the SMU pro day. He played along the Mustangs' defensive line while compiling 107 combined tackles, eight for a loss, 4.5 sacks, and four passes defensed in four seasons. Gentry has the size to possibly play guard for an NFL team.

We are less than one week away from the NFL Draft, and the San Francisco 49ers have their first day-one draft pick since 2021. That was the year they selected QB Trey Lance number three overall. The trade-up to get Lance cost the 49ers their first-round picks in 2022 and 2023. And now that they are back in the first round, at pick 31, fans are anxious to see what the team does with the pick.

By Al Sacco
Apr 12

John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have made it clear that they want WR Brandon Aiyuk to be a part of the San Francisco 49ers for the foreseeable future. It appears Aiyuk also wants to get something done, but all indications are that he isn't willing to take a hometown discount and the likelihood of playing on the last year of his deal without a holdout or trade request is slim. Simply put: Aiyuk wants to get paid. It's hard to blame him. A player's time in the NFL can be short and it takes just one hit to end a career. So, whether it's with the Niners or another team, Aiyuk will squeeze every penny out of what will most likely be his most lucrative professional contract. But is spending that much on a receiver a wise move for the franchise? There are a
