49ers To Host Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd

Fooch's Note: Matt Barrows noted that a source indicated wide receiver Rueben Randle visited with the 49ers "this month."

This past weekend,'s Alex Marvez tweeted that the 49ers will host a visit with Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd. Teams are allowed to host up to 30 visits leading up to the draft, and Floyd will be the second wide receiver to visit the 49ers after Illinois' A.J. Jenkins.

Player visits do not necessarily mean anything, but it is still notable given the limited number of visits a team can host. A guy like Michael Floyd is getting all sorts of buzz, and even if he slips a little bit, it is unlikely that he is in a position where the 49ers could even deal up to get him. I suppose the 49ers could put together a significant package to move up for Floyd, or anybody else in the top half of the draft, but it just does not seem likely.

The 49ers have also brought in a pair of running backs as part of these visits, hosting Virginia Tech's David Wilson late last month and planning a visit with Utah State's Robert Turbin later this week. The running back position has a lot of bodies with some long-term potential, but it comes down to how big a future the 49ers see from Kendall Hunter.

Head after the jump for a brief rundown of the players that have either visited the 49ers or taken part in a workout for the 49ers.
