After a flurry of activity during (well, before) the free agency period started, the rest of it has seen no activity. That being said, we HAVE been inviting guys over to the facility to kick their proverbial feet in the interest of drafting them next month.
Josh Allen, a guy much touted by me, is stopping by to visit with the 49er brass, among all the other teams in the top 6 spots, as a precursor to draft day. He of course had 220 tackles, 31.5 sacks, and 11 forced fumbles in his 42 games. For a defense that forced very few turnovers, as well as generate sacks, he has to be a guy high on their radar.
The thing is, they could very well trade out of the 2 spot (with the Raiders or Giants) and get him. The Raiders have 1st round picks to burn, so the impetus would be to squeeze their collective giblets (or the Giants) for a big haul.
They met with Nick Bosa last Wednesday. No more needs to be said about him that has already been hashed and rehashed. He’s either the best pass rusher available, or a bust and a half.
They also met with Quinnen Williams last week. This is the guy I think we should get. While AA is solid inside, I think they very well could move him back outside and plug QWilliams in the interior. We are also getting Kentavius Street back and he is healthy the last I heard. Be nice to have a solid and deep line that can be rotated in and out without much let-down.
We worked out TE Josh Oliver from right down 101 at SJ State. He came on his junoir and senior seasons to rack up 91 catches for 1,006 yards and 5 TDs. He looks like a great red zone option at 6’5″ and 250 lb. Good blocker as well. We could prolly get him in the 3rd round.
They also worked out TE Chris Gragg. Not sure why, other than he’s been hurt most of his career, and we seem to gravitate to those kinds of players.
