49ers spoke with Texas A&M WR Quartney Davis

Apr 16, 2020 at 2:38 PM--


Texas A&M wide receiver Quartney Davis has informed our own Brad Graham, who runs @TheSFNiners on Instagram, that he has interviewed with the San Francisco 49ers. More specifically, Davis says he spoke with the team's wide receivers coach, Wes Welker.

Davis racked up 99 receptions for 1,201 yards with 11 touchdowns through two seasons with the Aggies. An injury kept him out of his first season at Texas A&M (2016), and he didn't record any statistics during his redshirt season in 2017.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-1 and 201-pound Davis had a 40-time of 4.54 seconds and a vertical jump of 35.5 inches. Other measurables for Davis include an arm length of 31 3/8 inches and hands that measure 9 1/2 inches.

The NFL Draft is a week away. Pre-draft interviews are being held virtually over video chat software as the NFL continues to observe social distancing. Members of the team staff are conducting these interviews, along with other draft preparations, remotely from their homes. Conversations with draft prospects can't last more than an hour, with no more than three with a single player per week.

Below is the NFL.com draft profile bio on Davis:

Davis starred at Langham Creek High School in the Houston area before moving about 75 miles to the northwest to play for the Aggies. Davis missed the 2016 season due to a knee injury and did not record any statistics while playing in eight games as a redshirt freshman in 2017, though coaches saw his talent in practice while Christian Kirk and others made plays on Saturdays. Davis stepped into the WR1 spot with Kirk's departure for the NFL in 2018, leading the team's wide receivers with 45 catches for 585 yards (13.0 per) and seven scores. He played only 11 games in 2019 (54 receptions, 616 yards, 11.4 average, four touchdowns; five carries, 32 yards, 6.4 ypc in nine starts), but still decided to forgo his final season of eligibility and head to the NFL.

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com wrote the following about Davis within his scouting report:

Slot receiver with above-average size and adequate speed and separation quickness. He has good feel for space when working against two-deep looks. Willing and able to take on targets in the middle of the field. Davis was hurt by inconsistent quarterbacking but also found it difficult to uncover against tight man-to-man at times. He had some positive moments at the Senior Bowl and despite slightly underwhelming production, could land in Day 3 (Rounds 4-7) as a backup slot target with some outside flexibility.

Joe Marino of The Draft Network wrote the following about Davis within his scouting report:

Texas A&M WR Quartney Davis profiles as a slot receiver in the NFL where his route running skills can truly shine in the short to intermediate areas of the field and his below average functional strength would be less problematic than outside. While there's a lot to like about the way Davis competes through contact and after the catch, he can be swallowed up by physical corners and he lacks consistency with his hands and ball skills. Davis has a modest ceiling in a west coast passing offense and should provide some value as a WR4.

Pro Football Focus released its latest mock draft, courtesy of analyst Ben Linsey. The San Francisco 49ers are highly anticipated to select a quarterback following their recent trade up to the No. 3 spot. They'll have their choice of some good options. With Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson nearly a lock to go No. 1 and No. 2, San Francisco can go with Justin Fields of Ohio State, Trey Lance of North Dakota State, or Mac Jones of Alabama. Linsey has San Francisco going with the player who has been the popular choice among 49ers fans—Fields. "Fields' game has been put under the



Fowler: 49ers' draft moves could change plans for Jimmy Garoppolo

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is set to earn about $25 million this year. Whomever they pick at No. 3 overall will have a cap hit of about $6.2 million in 2021, per OverTheCap.com. If the gap between the two players isn't seen as great—and a lot of that may depend on actually getting the rookie into the building and seeing how fast he can progress—that could accelerate the plan to part ways with Garoppolo. Maybe something happens before the draft. Maybe it happens during, after, or even next year. For now, the 49ers sound comfortable keeping Garoppolo around for another season while their rookie quarterback sits and learns. It's a prudent plan considering the roster is built to compete for a championship right now. On Sunday, ESPN's



Peter King weighs in on Jimmy Garoppolo's status with 49ers, future with Patriots

NBC Sports' Peter King weighed in on Jimmy Garoppolo, his status with the San Francisco 49ers, and his potential future with the New England Patriots, the team the quarterback spent his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with. First, the 49ers. Count King among those who aren't confident that San Francisco will trade Garoppolo this year. The team has publicly stated that it plans to enter Week 1 with Garoppolo as the starter. Nothing the 49ers do at No. 3 may change that. Head coach Kyle Shanahan seems content with letting a rookie sit and learn for a year, which will be extremely beneficial considering his offense's complexity. Said general manager John Lynch last week:



Breer: Don't buy the pre-draft hype; 49ers keeping QB evaluations 'close to the vest'

By David Bonilla

Mac Jones to the San Francisco 49ers is a done deal, right? That's what every analyst and evaluator would have you believe. Much of that originated from NBC Sports analyst Chris Simms, a close friend of head coach Kyle Shanahan, stating that he believes the 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot to draft Jones. Shanahan debunked that last week. Not the idea that Jones might be the pick, but that Simms might have some insight into the team's plans. "Trust me, Chris talks about everything," Shanahan said. "Therefore, I haven't been able to talk to him in a couple of years. Anyone who you're friends with who speaks in the media, and people think you're friends with them, that means you're not allowed to tell them anything. That's why he doesn't even ask me stuff.
