RB Lance Dunbar will visit with 49ers

Mar 9, 2016 at 6:14 PM--


ESPN's Adam Caplan is reporting that RB Lance Dunbar will visit with the San Francisco 49ers.


Dunbar spent four seasons with the Dallas Cowboys after being signed by them out of North Texas in 2012 as an undrafted free agent. Over his career, he has 391 rushing yards with a 4.6 yard-per-carry average. He also has 524 receiving yards on 52 receptions.

Dunbar expected to be a part of the Cowboys' offense in 2013, but injuries and fumbles shortened his campaign. In October of 2015, Dunbar was placed on the injured reserve after suffering a torn ACL and MCL during a kickoff return in the team's fourth game, a matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Surprisingly, he entered that game as the Cowboys' leading receiver with 215 yards on 21 receptions.

The 49ers had expressed interest in Buccaneers RB Doug Martin, but Tampa Bay re-signed him to a 5-year, $35.75 million deal.

Fred Warner blew away the 49ers during his pre-draft visit, says Adam Peters

Linebacker Fred Warner was a pleasant surprise for San Francisco 49ers fans coming out of the 2018 draft. He immediately showed flashes of what he could be during his rookie campaign, leading the defense in tackles not only then but in each of his three NFL seasons. After spending some time with Warner, the 49ers immediately knew that he might be someone special. They were already impressed with his on-field play at BYU. What sealed the deal in their minds was getting to know the person. Once again, there won't be pre-draft visits this year. As was the case last year, all interviews will be conducted virtually over Zoom or FaceTime. It's unfortunate because those 30 allotted visits can be a great tool in evaluating an incoming rookie. Of course, given the current



The Athletic has 49ers trading down, receiving Sam Darnold from Jets in mock draft

There is a lot to unpack here. Dane Brugler of The Athletic released his latest mock draft and predicted some movement for the San Francisco 49ers. The analyst has the New York Jets drafting their quarterback of the future — Zach Wilson of BYU — with the No. 2 overall pick. Then, he has San Francisco surrendering the No. 12 overall pick and a 2022 second-round selection to the New York Jets, moving down to No. 23 and getting quarterback Sam Darnold in return. Jets receive: No. 12 overall pick, 2022 second-round pick 49ers receive: No. 23 overall pick, Sam Darnold "For San Francisco, this



Steve Young calls possibility of 49ers replacing Jimmy Garoppolo with a rookie 'intriguing'

Jimmy Garoppolo must be the favorite to be the San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback after the Los Angeles Rams outbid everyone for Matthew Stafford, right? You still have names like Deshaun Watson, who may become available at some point. However, that acquisition is likely to require an unprecedented deal. Jason La Canfora recently explained why the 49ers might not last long in a bidding war against other teams. Then you have other names like Carson Wentz and Sam Darnold. In the minds of most Niner fans, neither feels like much of an upgrade over Garoppolo. You also have the upcoming draft. San Francisco could find an heir apparent there. Or maybe the



PFF identifies Solomon Thomas as the 49ers' biggest draft mistake over the past 5 years

The San Francisco 49ers could have gone in several other directions in 2017 with the first selection of the John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan era. They could have selected a franchise quarterback in a draft that included both Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson. Last weekend, Lynch spoke of the decision to pass on Mahomes, who he would face three years later in the Super Bowl. "That will probably haunt me for a while because I remember going to his Pro Day," Lynch said. "We were in a different place as an organization, and we had a different plan for quarterback because we really weren't -- I remember going to his pro day doing my job but really as kind of a smokescreen
