Clemson CB Mackensie Alexander visiting 49ers today

Apr 9, 2016 at 7:17 AM--


Clemson CB Mackensie Alexander is visiting with the San Francisco 49ers today, per Ian Rapoport. Alexander's visit was already known, but his visit date was not.


The 5-foot-10 and 190-pound Alexander measured in with a 31 3/8-inch arm length and 9 1/8-inch hands at the NFL Scouting Combine.

At his pro day, he recorded a 4.47-second 40-time, 37 1/2-inch vertical, and a broad jump of 10 feet, 1 inch.

Llance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compared Alexander to Desmond Trufant, had this to say in his scouting report:

Alexander is a difficult evaluation because there are times on tape that he looks vulnerable to quickness off the line of scrimmage and he doesn't have the prototypical size of a top­-end NFL cornerback. However, he was consistently sticky in man coverage and played with the instincts and confidence needed from a true cover corner. Alexander's confidence may border on cockiness at times, but that also seems to feed his competitive fire. Alexander might struggle early on, but should settle in to become a quality starter by his second year.

After redshirting at Clemson in 2013, Alexander started all 13 games as a redshirt freshman in 2014 and had 22 tackles. He returned as a starter in 2015 when he had 23 tackles, two for a loss, and five passes defended.

San Francisco 49ers players looked like they were saying farewell to DeMeco Ryans after the team's 31-7 defeat in the NFC Championship Game. The defensive coordinator is a top candidate for head-coaching jobs. After Sunday's game, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Ryans is expected to become the Houston Texans' next coach, assuming this week's second interview goes well. The fact that Ryans may have coached the 49ers defense for the last time finally hit players in the locker room at Lincoln Financial Field after their season ended. "I hadn't thought about it up to this point because obviously you think you're going to win it all," linebacker Fred

49ers mailbag: Will 49ers sign a big-name QB? Who will Ryans take to Houston? Who will replace Ryans? Will Garoppolo return?

There's not much going on with the San Francisco 49ers. Not unless you count these small bits of news: Brock Purdy has a UCL tear and will likely need surgery. If they can repair the tendon, he'll need six months of recovery time (which is August). If they have to replace it (Tommy John surgery), it will be decidedly longer. Trey Lance says he is three to four weeks from being cleared to practice, and that he should be 100% by OTAs (organized team activities). Trent Williams was walking with a crutch on Tuesday (locker cleanout day) and had a walking boot on. But he said it's nothing. DeMeco Ryans was hired to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans. Tom Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning, so those hoping he
