Apr 17, 2018 at 12:27 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers held a private workout with North Carolina A&T tackle Brandon Parker this morning, according to a report by Josh Norris of Rotoworld and NBC Sports.


Parker earned MEAC Offensive Lineman of the Year honors in 2015 while starting all 12 games for the Aggies and then repeated as the award recipient in 2016 and 2017. As a senior he also earned first-team FCS All-American honors from the Associated Press.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-7 and 314-pound Parker had a 40-time of 5.4 seconds, a vertical jump of 28.5 inches, a broad jump of 113 inches, completed the three-cone drill in 7.82 seconds, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.68 seconds.

NFL.com projects Parker to be a fourth- or fifth-round draft pick.



Lance Zierlein of NFL.com, who compares Parker to Jylan Ware, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Parker's high center of gravity creates some athletic challenges for him, but he possesses the physical traits that teams are willing to draft and coach up. Despite his college experience, Parker is a bit of a project who will need to continue to work on his technique and core strength before he is ready to handle NFL pass rushers. Parker plays a high priority position with a limited talent pool this season and should go earlier than the tape dictates."

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk among PFF's Year 3 breakout candidates

By David Bonilla
Jun 21

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was a hot pick last year as a candidate primed to have a breakout season. Instead, it was third-year wideout Deebo Samuel who emerged as one of the best in the game. Aiyuk was slow out of the gate, hauling in just one pass for six yards in the Niners' first two games. He played just 51 percent of the offensive snaps through Week 2. Aiyuk finished the season strong, playing at least 90 percent of the offensive snaps in each game starting in Week 9. He amassed 43 receptions for 685 yards and four touchdowns during that span. Can Aiyuk have a Samuel-like breakout season in his third year—minus the running back snaps. One thousand, four hundred five of Samuel's 1,770 all-purpose yards came as a receiver. In 2021,

49ers explain why they hit the mark on Oren Burks, Ray-Ray McCloud, and George Odum signings

The offseason free agent additions by the 49ers of linebacker Oren Burks, wide receiver/return specialist Ray-Ray McCloud and safety George Odum may not have generated a huge amount of buzz among the team's fans, but 49ers coaches couldn't be more excited with the fact they were able to add all three of those players to the roster. That's because the 49ers headed into the offseason with a desire to improve on special teams while adding depth at each one of those positions, and Burks, McCloud and Odum were highly-ranked targets for the 49ers in each area. And so far, each player has exceeded the expectations surrounding them when they were brought aboard. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and special teams coordinator Brian Schneider spoke during the team's recent
