49ers hosting Washington WR Dante Pettis for a pre-draft visit

Apr 9, 2018 at 8:38 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are hosting wide receiver Dante Pettis of Washington for a pre-draft visit on Monday, according to a report from NBC Sports Bay Area.


In four years with the Huskies, Pettis registered 163 receptions for 2,256 yards and 24 touchdowns. Since his junior year in 2016, he caught 116 passes for 1,583 yards with 22 touchdowns.

As a returner on special teams, Pettis has returned nine punts for touchdowns over his collegiate career while averaging 14.2 yards per return. Four of the nine touchdowns came during his senior year. He has 1,274 return yards in 90 attempts during his time at Washington.

NFL.com projects Pettis to be a second- or third-round draft pick. He did not participate in the NFL Scouting Combine due to an ankle injury.

"I could [do the workout today]," Pettis said at the combine, "but I know that I could get a better time by doing all of those drills later."

The injury ended up preventing Pettis from working out for attendees at Washington's pro day as well.



Lance Zierlein of NFL.com, who compares Pettis to T.J. Houshmandzadeh, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Solid secondary receiving option who has spent time on his craft and has the ability to attack and uncover on all three levels. Pettis lacks physicality and could struggle to handle in-your-face press corners, so he may see snaps from the slot. While his punt return talent solidifies his draft standing, his ability as route-runner combined with his smooth pass-catching should give him a long, solid career."

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

By Chris Beno

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

By Marc Adams
Jan 4

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
