Apr 7, 2016 at 4:20 PM--


Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell has a scheduled visit with the San Francisco 49ers, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle and via National Football Post. Mitchell also has visits with the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles scheduled.


The 6-foot, 198-pound Mitchell had a 40-time of 4.45 seconds at the Scouting Combine. He also had a 36-inch vertical jump, a 129-inch broad jump, and measured in with a 32 5/8-inch arm length and 10 1/2-inch hands according to the NFL.

Mitchell had 865 yards on 58 receptions and four touchdowns for the Bulldogs last season, starting every game.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein had this to say about Mitchell in his draft profile:

Mitchell was hampered by injuries in the past and inconsistent quarterback play this year, but there is no doubting his ball skills and smoothness as a route runner. His speed is just average and he doesn't get as much separation as teams like underneath, but he's tough, can make contested catches and has the type of personal and football character that will have scouts pulling for him in their draft rooms. Mitchell will be a 24-year-old rookie.

NFL Media's Gil Brandt added the following about Mitchell at Georgia's pro day:

Wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell – 6-0, 197 – stood on his combine numbers. He's a very athletic guy and worked out well at the pro day.

The San Francisco 49ers' streak of second-half shutouts continues. Although, it looked like that was in jeopardy a couple of times in the second half. Another streak ended after Sunday's 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. Head coach Kyle Shanahan couldn't say, "No injuries to report," something he had done in the previous three games. The 49ers lost two key players in the game. Running back Elijah Mitchell and guard Spencer Burford exited with injuries. Mitchell was ruled out with a knee injury, while Burford was sidelined due to an ankle injury. After the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Mitchell may have suffered another MCL sprain of his knee, but it's not believed to be as severe as the one he sustained in Week 1. However, he will likely miss some time.

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle had just one catch for 21 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night. It was an impressive effort, though. One person inside the organization even believes it may have been the play that turned everything around in the game for the Niners. The team didn't seem to be clicking for much of the first half. Kittle made the catch and then refused to go down 😤 @gkittle46📺: #LACvsSF on
