Apr 11, 2016 at 10:08 AM--


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.

That championship window closed fast. In January, I wrote a piece about how the 49ers were facing a must-win Super Bowl. It wasn't a popular opinion at the time, but sitting at 2-3 the 49ers have made me look like a sage with boundless wisdom. After getting demolished by Ryan Fitzpatrick this past Sunday, the 49ers look more lost than they ever have under the guidance of head coach Kyle Shanahan. With no identity and no passion, the 49ers have become the stereotypical Super Bowl hangover story. As it often does, failure begins with a handful of bad decisions. After losing 2 team captains, the 49ers replaced them with a rookie and a veteran who hasn't played since 2018. As DT DeForest Buckner
