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).

49ers rise to No. 3, fall to No. 14, and hold ground at No. 9 in wild Week 2 NFL power rankings

The NFL power rankings for Week 2 illustrate the sports media's split over the 49ers after their blowout-turned-nail-biter victory over the Lions. If you're confused about the San Francisco 49ers after their 41-33 victory over the Detroit Lions in Week 1, you are not alone. In Week 2, NFL "Power Rankers" fell into one of two general camps as it relates to San Francisco: Those who think the 49ers took a clear step forward as they trounced the Lions over the first three quarters of Sunday's contest, and those who, after witnessing the Lions' improbable comeback attempt expectedly fall short, don't quite know what to think. It was a rough weekend for NFL analysts, as many in a long list of questionable media darlings tasted their first defeats of the

With the 49ers 69-man roster (53-man roster + 16 players on the practice squad) set for now, let's take a look at what the potential depth chart could be. Over the course of the past few days, the team has sent players to IR, allowing replacements to take spots on the 53-man roster. In addition, I'll be talking about the gameday roster A LOT in this article, which overall includes 55 players as the NFL allows for two additional players to be on the gameday roster who aren't on the 53-man roster. Of those 55 total players, 48 can be deemed active and available to play in a game. But, enough terminology. Let's predict the 49ers depth chart for Week 1 of the 2021 NFL



ESPN ranks 'decent' 49ers roster last in NFC West, identifies obstacle to overcome

ESPN's latest NFL power ranking is causing a bit of a stir among fans. Not only does writer Mike Clay have the San Francisco 49ers ranked No. 15 in the league, but he also has them as the last-listed representative of the NFC West. While the 49ers and Los Angeles Rams are oddsmakers' favorites to win the division, the Seattle Seahawks surprisingly come in at No. 6, the highest-ranking among the four NFC West teams. The Los Angeles Rams can be found six spots later at No. 12. Even the Arizona Cardinals are ranked higher than San Francisco. One spot higher, in fact, at No. 14. So why the
