49ers are ‘very interested’ in WR Torrey Smith

Mar 7, 2015 at 8:16 PM--


According to ESPN insider Adam Caplan, the San Francisco 49ers are very interested in Baltimore Ravens wide receiver and pending free agent Torrey Smith.

Smith has been with the Ravens since they selected him in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He has recorded 213 receptions for 3,591 yards and 30 receiving touchdowns in his 62 starts out of 64 games in his career.

Smith and current 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin helped the Ravens defeat the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.

The 49ers likely see Smith as the deep threat that they need in order to stretch the field on offense.

Teams are currently free to begin discussions with the agents of upcoming free agents. However, free agents cannot officially sign with a new team until Tuesday at 1 PM Pacific.

Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network is well-informed when it comes to pre-draft chatter around the league. The draft analyst hears all of the Mac Jones-to-49ers speculation, with many proclaiming the scenario as a near-lock. Pauline wants everyone to pump the brakes on that a bit because he doesn't see it as the certainty that many others would lead you to believe it is. "People, I think, are just under the assumption of belief that it's a foregone conclusion that [the San Francisco 49ers are] going to take Mac Jones with that third pick in the draft," Pauline told Trey Wingo on a recent podcast (h/t to Patrick Tulini). "I'm told that's not the case at all. There are some things that they're looking at with Mac Jones
