49ers to work out Humboldt State guard Alex Cappa, per report

Apr 17, 2018 at 12:52 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are scheduled to work out guard Alex Cappa of Humboldt State, per a report from Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.

"Humboldt State draft prospect Alex Cappa will work out this week for 49ers offensive line coach John Benton in Arizona, he told NBC Sports Bay Area," writes Maiocco. "Cappa has visited the Raiders, Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota and the New York Jets during the pre-draft process."

Cappa was named a first-team All-GNAC in each of his four years with the Lumberjacks. He also earned first-team Division II All-American honors as a senior.

Cappa is seen as a potential guard at the NFL level despite playing at left tackle throughout his collegiate career.

"He lined up at every line position except center during the week at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama," added Maiocco.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-7 and 305-pound Cappa had a 40-time of 5.39 seconds, a vertical jump of 26.5 inches, a broad jump of 97 inches, completed the three-cone drill in 84 seconds, had 24 reps in the bench press, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.84 seconds. projects Cappa to be a fourth- or fifth-round draft pick.

Lance Zierlein of, who compares Cappa to Orlando Franklin, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Cappa has the size, toughness and movement skills to push his way up the draft board with a strong week of Senior Bowl practices. Conversely, a poor week of practice could bury his stock as his level of competition hasn't offered up challenges on tape to fall back on for scouts who like him. Cappa is a better run blocker than pass protector at this stage. Because of that, he could be targeted for a move to guard even though swing tackle is a reasonable fit for him as well."

Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Cappa dominated at the small-school level and got into a groove at the Senior Bowl after a rocky start. He offers size and growth potential and has the tools to develop into a solid right tackle at the next level."

There has been some chatter that the San Francisco 49ers might be willing to hold onto Jimmy Garoppolo if they can't find a trade partner for the veteran quarterback or if an interested team tries to lowball the Niners. San Francisco had hoped to trade Garoppolo in March. The quarterback undergoing shoulder surgery halted all trade talks. Then the number of quarterback-needy teams greatly diminished. 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have repeatedly indicated that they expect Garoppolo to be healthy enough to throw again by early July. We're almost to that point. On Saturday, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that Garoppolo's

Retired NFL quarterback Alex Smith will forever be remembered for the courage it took to return to the league after suffering a horrific leg injury that nearly cost him his life. While with Washington, Smith sustained a spiral and compound fracture to his tibia and fibula in his right leg. Many assumed the injury was career-ending. Smith returned to the football field in 2020, earning NFL Comeback Player of the Year honors before retiring last offseason. On Saturday, Smith shared the story of his family's latest struggle. In May, his daughter, Sloane, had to undergo brain surgery to remove a large and rare type of cancerous tumor.

Bleacher Report's Kristopher Knox recently listed one offseason regret for each NFL team (h/t Niners Noise). That regret for the Kansas City Chiefs was letting Charvarius Ward depart. In March, the cornerback signed a three-year, $40.5 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers, forcing the Chiefs to use a first-round pick on Trent McDuffie. What about the regret for the 49ers, though? Is it the complicated situation with Jimmy Garoppolo, the veteran quarterback they would love to trade but can't? Is it not directly shooting
