New San Francisco 49ers tight end, Charlie Woerner, had just 34 catches for 376 yards in four seasons at Georgia. That's even fewer than George Kittle's 48 receptions at Iowa. The latter managed to turn those paltry collegiate stats into NFL success, earning two Pro Bowl selections and being named a first-team All-Pro this past season.

Woerner is excited to learn from arguably the best tight end in football. He spoke with reporters via a video conference call shortly after receiving a phone call from 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan. Woerner was asked about playing on the same team as Kittle, who, like him, is considered to be a phenomenal run-blocker.

"I'm super pumped to be in the tight end room with him," Woerner shared. "As a guy who blocks a lot at Georgia, I love watching him play. Just the way that he played at the 49ers this year, and how aggressive he is in the blocking game, I love to emulate him, and try to be like him in my game."

Woerner was asked if he can envision playing fullback in the NFL, as the idea has been thrown around. He is also expected to be a significant contributor on special teams.

"I kind of see myself as a do-it-all guy, a guy who can do anything," he responded, "and really just going to do what the team asks me to do. That's what I did at Georgia. I'm just trying to do whatever it takes to win a ball game, so I'm excited to go to the 49ers, and win some ball games."
