Representatives from the San Francisco 49ers were on hand for former Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal's workout on Thursday. The 49ers were also one of six NFL teams in attendance for former Oregon State linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu's pro-day-style workout on the same day, according to NFL Draft Analyst.

The five other NFL teams in attendance were the Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, and Chicago Bears.

This week, Ugwoegbu declared himself available for July 11's NFL supplemental draft. The 20-game starter for the Beavers registered 109 combined tackles, 15.5 for a loss, seven sacks, four passes defensed, a forced fumble, and three fumble recoveries over the last two seasons, according to Sports Reference. He missed three games in 2017 but still had 55 tackles and a sack.

Ugwoegbu, who was prepping for his senior year with Oregon State, was suspended indefinitely this spring. He did not participate in the Beavers' spring practice, and a school spokesman said the linebacker left the program for personal reasons.

Representatives from the 49ers also attended the workouts of Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander on June 20 and Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant on June 25.

Teams can bid on players in the NFL supplemental draft on July 11. The bids will be in the form of 2019 draft picks. Since draft positioning will not be finalized until the end of the upcoming season, teams need only indicate which round they would select a prospect. The club with the winning bid receives the rights to the player but loses the corresponding selection next year.

No player has been picked in the supplemental draft since the then-St. Louis Rams won former Clemson offensive lineman Isaiah Battle in 2015 with a fifth-round selection bid.

Daniel Jeremiah has 49ers addressing O-line in latest mock draft

The San Francisco 49ers have some weak points along the offensive line. It's tough to dispute that. Three of the team's starters—Jake Brendel, Colton McKivitz, and Aaron Banks—received overall Pro Football Focus grades under 70.0. Clearly, this is an area that could use improvement during the offseason. NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah proposes just that in his latest mock draft, predicting the 49ers will select offensive lineman Graham Barton out of Duke with the No. 31 overall pick. "A left tackle at Duke, Barton would slide inside to guard and has the athleticism to do all that is required in Kyle Shanahan's

49ers Notebook: Nick Bosa lobbies for 49ers to keep Chase Young; Kyle Juszczyk addresses his future; Has anyone on the team watched the Super Bowl yet?

By Kirk Larrabee

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's
