49ers expressing interest in Hobart WR Brandon Shed, per report

Apr 22, 2018 at 4:26 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers and Buffalo Bills spoke with wide receiver Brandon Shed following his pro day, according to a report from Draft Diamonds. 10 teams remain in contact with Shed as the 2018 NFL Draft quickly approaches.


In four seasons with the Statesmen, Shed registered 168 catches for 2,954 yards with 32 touchdowns in 42 games. His touchdown total is a school record. Shed ran a 4.59-second 40-time, had a 35-inch vertical jump, and a 128-inch broad jump at his pro day, per Draft Diamonds. Draft Analyst lists the receiver, who did not participate in the combine, at 6-2 and 199 pounds. Although, some resources, including the official Hobart athletics page, list Shed as tall as 6-4.

Shed earned first team All-Liberty League honors in 2017 after leading the league in yards per catch (15.7). He was invited to play in the National Football League Players Association Collegiate Bowl, making him the first Hobart player to participate in the game.

"I'm a hard worker," Shed told Draft Diamonds last July. "Still learning how to play this position, so the sky is the limit once I master my position."

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo hoping for a 'quick resolution' once healthy, per report

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



Optimism surrounding 'potentially huge deal' for 49ers WR Deebo Samuel, per report

Another NFL wide receiver has seen his bank account grow this offseason. Earlier today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Washington Commanders are signing Terry McLaurin to a three-year extension worth up to $71 million in new money with $53.2 million guaranteed. That's nearly $23.7 million annually in potential new cash and about $17.7 million in new guaranteed money. Meanwhile, everyone is still waiting to see how the San Francisco 49ers resolve their situation with their star wideout, Deebo Samuel. It wasn't that long ago that he requested to be traded after watching several of his peers earn big paydays this offseason. Many, including star tight end George Kittle,



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

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,



Bleacher Report: 49ers probably regret not extending Deebo Samuel earlier

By David Bonilla

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
