LSU’s Deion Jones has private workout for 49ers

Apr 11, 2016 at 12:58 PM--


LSU LB Deion Jones had private workouts with a number of NFL teams, including the San Francisco 49ers, per Rand Getlin of NFL Network. Given that it was a private workout, it likely wasn't over the weekend at the team's headquarters in Santa Clara. The 49ers hosted a number of draft prospects for visits this past weekend.


During the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-1 and 222-pound Jones had a 40-time of 4.59 seconds, a vertical jump of 33 inches, and a broad jump of 120 inches. During his pro day, he improved on his 40-time and vertical jump, coming in at 4.38 seconds in the 40 and 35.5 inches on the jump.

2016 Combine workout: Deion Jones

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Jones to Joe Mays, had the following to say in his scouting report:

Three-down linebacker prospect with outstanding athleticism and a willing, aggressive mindset for the position. Jones lacks the playing experience that most linebackers in this draft will have so he might need a year of tutelage on the NFL level to help him expedite his learning curve. Jones could be a fit at ILB for a 3-4 team or as an outside linebacker in a 4­-3. Jones' potential as a special teams cover man gives him a shot to get early playing time.

In 2015, Jones had 88 total tackles, 12.5 for a loss, five sacks, and two interceptions - one of which was returned for a touchdown.

The 21-year-old Trey Lance continues to earn praise from his teammates. The San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback is preparing to enter his first NFL training camp and hopes to show off how his hard work in the past month has led to improvement. During the players' time off, several videos surfaced of Lance taking part in throwing sessions, taking what he learned from the offseason program to sharpen his skills. One of the players Lance threw to last month is teammate Mohamed Sanu. The two also worked out together in Southern California. The wide receiver hopes to make his



49ers WR Jalen Hurd has experienced 'no setbacks,' says Mike McDaniel

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jalen Hurd is entering his third NFL season. He has yet to appear in an NFL regular-season game. Hurd spent the last two seasons on injured reserve. A back injury kept him out of his rookie 2019 campaign. The wideout suffered an ACL injury during training camp last year. The 49ers like what they see in Hurd when he is available. He's just had some unfortunate luck at the start of his NFL career. But — knock on wood — Hurd reportedly looks good in training camp again, and the coaching staff hopes to finally get the former third-round pick on the field this season. "Yeah, we've seen no setbacks," offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel said after practice on Thursday. "Every time he's been on the field, we've



2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday, we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how it compares to the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.
