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.

ESPN offered a vote of confidence in Jimmy Garoppolo as the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback in 2021 — sort of. Insider Field Yates predicted the starting quarterback for each NFL team.

2021 salary cap floor raised to $180 million, giving 49ers a little wiggle room

The San Francisco 49ers have been working this offseason with the assumption that the 2021 salary cap would end up at the floor of $175 million. "We're operating under the premise of the floor, which is 175," general manager John Lynch told reporters in January. "We felt like that was best to operate off of that and kind of formulate our plans off of that. If it's anything on top, that's gravy for us. I think that's how a lot of teams are operating." It was always assumed that the salary cap would end up being higher, possibly as high as between $180 million and $185 million. But it's better to work with the floor and avoid any surprises. The 49ers — and all NFL teams — officially got a (very) little more wiggle room on

We have just one sample of a full season with Jimmy Garoppolo as a starter. During that 2019 season, the quarterback led the San Francisco 49ers to 13 regular-season wins and a playoff run ending with a Super Bowl appearance. Outside of that, Garoppolo was a backup in New England and has battled to stay on the field due to injuries in San Francisco. Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus recently ranked every NFL team's quarterback situation by need. After all, the quarterback can be the most important position on a team, and those that have elite ones can have longer championship windows. The 49ers fell under "high" for quarterback need, which within this ranking means the current starter
