49ers hold private workout for Clemson LB B.J. Goodson

Mar 29, 2016 at 11:50 PM--


Ryan Sakamoto reports that the San Francisco 49ers have held a private workout with Clemson ILB B.J. Goodson.


Earlier this month, USA Today's Jon Ledyard did a detailed analysis of Goodson that is worth a read. In the analysis, he had this to say about the former Tiger.

"One of the true leaders of Clemson's dominant defensive unit this past season, linebacker B.J. Goodson has been unheralded throughout the pre-draft process, but a strong combine performance may finally have analysts' attention."

Goodson had a 4.69 40-time and benched 30 reps at the NFL Combine last month. He leaped 34.5 inches in the vertical test and 9 feet and 10 inches in the broad jump. His showing at the Combine was enough to impress evaluators in attendance.


"I feel strongly that the Clemson linebacker has the traits to develop into a solid starter at the next level," says Ledyard. He added the following within his analysis.

"While his rocked up frame and powerful punch suggest a player that can jolt blockers off his frame with ease, Goodson is also excellent at avoiding contact to pursue the ball quickly when he needs to."

"As far as box play goes, I'd put Goodson against any linebacker not named Jack or Ragland in this year's draft, that's how steady his ability to stay clean and constantly work to the football in a timely fashion is."

The 49ers could take a closer look at Goodson in day three of the draft. Perhaps even in round 4, where he is graded. San Francisco has nine selections from the 4th round through the 6th round. They do not have a 7th round selection.

The 49ers are also reportedly "doing their due-diligence" at the cornerback position and Sakamoto states that the team has met extensively with Mississippi State CB Taveze Calhoun. Calhoun could be another day three option for San Francisco.


Sakamoto also reports that the 49ers have been linked to a couple of possible day three wide receivers as well. They are Tulsa's Keyarris Garrett (6-4, 221 lbs) and Mississippi State's De'Runnya Wilson (6-5, 215lbs).

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.

Bleacher Report predicts this trade involving 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo

Maurice Moton, a featured columnist and fantasy football analyst for Bleacher Report, recently made nine "bold predictions" for the 2021 season. Among them was trying to predict the fate of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo will enter training camp atop the 49ers' quarterback depth chart. However, behind him is the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance. Lance is the future. Garoppolo is the present. At least, that is the impression that the team's decision-makers have been presenting all offseason. The plan is to have Garoppolo start Week 1 against the Detroit Lions and potentially beyond, allowing Lance all the time he needs to
