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.

Trent Williams calls last week's COVID-19 situation 'a nightmare,' feels 49ers were 'screwed'

Trent Williams was frustrated as he watched his San Francisco 49ers teammates struggle in last week's game against the Green Bay Packers. The starting left tackle was supposed to be playing. He entered the week like any other, assuming he would be anchoring the 49ers offensive line. Then wide receiver Kendrick Bourne tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing identified Williams and two others as individuals who had been close enough to Bourne that they might have contracted the highly-contagious virus. Because the game was on a Thursday, Williams did not have enough time to pass two COVID-19 tests and be cleared to play. "It was a nightmare, man. It was a nightmare," Williams told KNBR's Mark Willard on Thursday night. "It's one of them things, I

49ers-Saints: Still no sign of Deebo Samuel at practice, Kendrick Bourne returns

Reporters did not see San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel during today's practice, which is the last of this week before the team boards a plane bound for New Orleans. That means the second-year wideout did not practice at all this week, making his availability for Sunday's game against the Saints very unlikely. Samuel is attempting to return from a hamstring injury suffered during the 49ers' Week 7 win over the New England Patriots. General manager John Lynch had hoped Samuel might be able to get onto the practice field today but noted that his availability for this weekend remained a long shot. "I think the final challenge or opportunity for Deebo to show that he can go is out here on Friday,"

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 10 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Both wide receiver Deebo Samuel and running back Tevin Coleman are ruled out. Neither practiced this week. Two other receivers, River Cracraft and Trent Taylor, are listed as "questionable." Sunday will be Samuel's third consecutive missed game due to a hamstring injury. He also missed the first three games of the season after suffering a Jones fracture in June. Head coach Kyle Shanahan noted that cornerback Richard Sherman would not be activated from injured reserve before this weekend's game. The 49ers opened his practice windows this week. Sherman's most-likely return will be on November
