Per CSN Bay Area,Clemson DE Kevin Dodd was among those that worked out for the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, which was part of a weekend when the team hosted numerous draft prospects.


Late last month, Dodd was among the players that 49ers general manager Trent Baalke privately worked out himself. He worked out for Baalke the same week as former Tiger teammate DE Shaq Lawson.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compared Dodd to Michael Bennett, had the following to say within his draft profile:

The arrow is pointed up for Dodd who finished the season with a streak of five consecutive games with a sack. Dodd already looks the part of an NFL defensive end and his desire to make plays coupled with his physical traits and talent should have him shooting up draft boards. His lack of college snaps could preclude him from being "pro­ ready", but his instincts and football intelligence should expedite the learning process.

In 2015, Dodd had 82 tackles and 12.5 sacks in 15 games for the Clemson Tigers.

Why Trey Lance will help 49ers receiver Brandon Aiyuk reach his full potential

By Bob Heyrman
May 8

Don't be surprised to see Brandon Aiyuk breakout with Trey Lance under center in 2022 for the San Francisco 49ers. Just when many of us expected the Arizona State product to take a significant step forward in year two, he clearly began the year as an afterthought in the 49ers' offense. As a rookie, Aiyuk proved to be the perfect complement to star receiver Deebo Samuel and tight end George Kittle hauling in 60 receptions, for 748 yards, and five touchdowns on 96 targets. Aiyuk also scored a pair of rushing touchdowns on six carries. Last season, the 24-year-old Aiyuk only had 13 receptions on

Earlier this week, reports surfaced from FanSided reporter Matt Lombardo that the San Francisco 49ers have been "continually underwhelmed" by young quarterback Trey Lance as he approaches his second season in the NFL. Lombardo further clarified that his tweet was based upon a conversation with an executive who's "pretty tight" with the 49ers, as well as members of the coaching staff last season. Unfortunately, based on the words of multiple players on the team, as well as the coaching staff and front office, that unsubstantiated claim couldn't be further from the truth. Here's a month-by-month breakdown of the comments surrounding Lance following the season, beginning with San Francisco's post-season press conferences in early

Albert Breer weighs in on Trey Lance doubts, Deebo Samuel situation with 49ers

By David Bonilla
May 9

There have been two major San Francisco 49ers storylines this offseason. The first was the quarterback situation and the transition from Jimmy Garoppolo to Trey Lance. Then, that was overshadowed by the Deebo Samuel drama that culminated in the wide receiver requesting a trade—and then being denied. On Monday, Albert Breer of MMQB joined The Rich Eisen Show and shared what he had heard about both storylines, starting with Samuel and the 49ers' strong desire to mend the broken relationship. "The messaging coming out of there is how badly [the 49ers] want him back and how important he is to their team," Breer told Eisen. Samuel was an essential factor in the team's success last season, amassing 1,770 all-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns for
