49ers meet with TE Clive Walford at NFL Scouting Combine

Feb 19, 2015 at 12:51 PM--


Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers are meeting with Miami tight end Clive Walford at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock has spoken highly of Walford, who is 6'4" and 258 lbs, and called him "the most explosive tight end in this year's draft."

At Miami, in addition to the normal tight end position, Walford lined up in the slot and out wide. He has great speed for a player of his size.

Walford had 44 receptions for 676 yards with seven touchdown receptions in 2014. He had 14 touchdown receptions, averaging 14.5 yards per catch, over his career at Miami.

General manager Trent Baalke said yesterday that tight end Vernon Davis would return to the team. In 2014, Davis had career low receiving yards (245) and tied a career low in touchdowns (2). He also had the fewest receptions since his rookie season with the 49ers in 2006.

The 49ers have the 15th overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft.

When the San Francisco 49ers traded for Jimmy Garoppolo in 2017, he was seen as the team's quarterback of the future. He was the player who would solidify the position — the most important in sports — for years to come. Three years after signing a long-term deal with the team, the Niners drafted Garoppolo's eventual replacement. San Francisco made Trey Lance of North Dakota State the No. 3 overall pick last week. Garoppolo remains in the 49ers' plans for the upcoming season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has repeatedly stated that the veteran quarterback will be his starter for Week 1 while leaving the door cracked open for the rookie by saying anything is possible. For now, Garoppolo will be the man under center. However, behind him on the depth chart is

One thing is abundantly clear so far about 49ers rookie cornerback Ambry Thomas -- he's in no danger of falling short on confidence. Thomas, who was selected by the 49ers in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft out of the University of Michigan, spoke with reporters Wednesday, two days before the 49ers kick off their rookie minicamp in Santa Clara. His confidence was on display throughout the media session, particularly after being asked about what he thought regarding the increased cost of living that will come from moving to the Bay Area from the Midwest. "Immediately once I got the phone call (during the draft), I was happy, excited. And I thought about everything," Thomas said. "California, the taxes, and I started thinking about all that -- the cost of
