Apr 20, 2016 at 11:07 AM--


Louisiana Tech RB Kenneth Dixon had a visit with the San Francisco 49ers, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. He also had visits with the Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, and is visiting with the Houston Texans today.


At the NFL Scouting Combine in February, the 5-foot10 and 215-pound Dixon had a 40-time of 4.58 seconds, a vertical jump of 37.5 inches, a broad jump of 121 inches, completed the three cone drill in 6.97 seconds, had 18 reps in the bench press, a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.28 seconds, and a 60-yard shuttle time of 11.50 seconds. Other measurables for Dixon include an arm length of 31 3/8 inches and hands that measure 9 1/2 inches.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Dixon to Thomas Rawls, had the following to say in his scouting report:

Highly determined runner with a strong desire to compete through the whistle on every snap. Dixon possesses outstanding feet with exciting suddenness in his change of direction, but he's very willing to finish his runs with authority and has a knack for finding the endzone. Dixon has all the traits of being a quality, three­-down starter in the NFL but his frame and suspect pass protection could be long-term concerns.

Other running backs on the roster include Carlos Hyde, Shaun Draughn, Jarryd Hayne, Mike Davis, Kendall Gaskins, and DeJuan Harris.

Sports will find a way to endure - through earthquakes, war, a global pandemic and if professional football is played before a couch-bound audience. The San Francisco 49ers will play sloppy football Sunday, but the other NFL franchises will join them. Remember it's been nine months - if not longer - since players were on the field in a live football contest. Forty-Niner head coach Kyle Shanahan will have his men ready for Sunday afternoon, even if the game turns into a sludgy swamp of mental errors, blown coverages, and missed assignments.

22 Will Be a Lucky Number for the 49ers in 2020

By Tim Sprinkles

When thinking about how NFL offenses have evolved over the years, many have moved away from core philosophies like establishing the run game, to a more open, Air Raid-style spread passing attack, with read options and run-pass-options (RPOs). These advancements have put more speedy pass catchers on the field and allowed athletic playmakers to put defenses in difficult situations. Defenses have evolved as well, in order to counter these offensive changes, by getting smaller and quicker at positions that were traditionally manned by larger, more physical players. This has resulted in linebackers who are built more like large safeties, and defensive tackles who are smaller, and quicker, as opposed to hulking, run-stuffers. It appears that Kyle Shanahan is evolving his offense to
