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).

Rapoport: 49ers willing to hold onto Jimmy Garoppolo until cut-down day

Jimmy Garoppolo isn't practicing, but he is throwing next to his soon-to-be former San Francisco 49ers teammates. He looks healthy, too, according to one reporter. "I watched Jimmy Garoppolo make about 25 full-tilt throws to a junior staffer on a side field during the 49ers' training-camp practice Friday," wrote Tim Kawakami of The Athletic, "and there's no question he's close to 100 percent healed after his March shoulder surgery and one of the top 32 QBs in the league right now. Maybe it's a shorter list than 32." The quarterback is cleared to do whatever he needs within the restrictions of his rehabilitation from that March 8 procedure. He has full

Following the 49ers' practice session on Thursday, quarterback Trey Lance spoke publicly for the first time since June while defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans chatted with reporters about what he's seen so far from his side of the ball -- and from the quarterback his defense has been facing. Lance spoke on a number of topics, including what he thought of his first two days of training camp as the team's starter. Ryans offered his views of Lance, as well as what he's seen from some of the key players in the secondary and on the defensive line. Plus, there was an interesting Twitter quote Thursday from former 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, who expects to see big things from his former defensive teammates this season. Here's a run-down of all of
