The San Francisco 49ers have several players from LSU on their radar. We break down the latest two.

The San Francisco 49ers will bring in as many as 30 draft prospects for official visits, but it is far from the full list of players the 49ers are interested in. Two LSU players who have not been connected to the 49ers for an official visit apparently are still on their radar. Eric Branch is reporting the 49ers have "strong" interest in linebacker Kwon Alexander and running back Terrence Magee. This brings to four the LSU players connected to the 49ers. Cornerback Jalen Collins is reportedly set for an official visit, and the team reportedly met with guard La'el Collins around his Pro Day.

Alexander played outside linebacker, and scouting reports project him as a 4-3 outside linebacker. At 6'1, 227 pounds it would seem like any 49ers interest would be more as an inside linebacker. It remains a position of need, and he is potentially the kind of tackling machine that could bring some depth to the spot. He is projected as a third or fourth round pick at this point.

Magee is projected more as a seventh round pick or priority undrafted free agent. The LSU running back stands 5'8, weighs 213 pounds, and ran 40s of 4.65 and 4.66 at the LSU Pro Day. He played in all 13 games for LSU, but only started one. He finished the season with 571 yards on 112 carries as Leonard Fournette's primary backup. A year earlier he rushed 86 times for 626 yards. He is a guy the 49ers could potentially bring in as a training camp body to get reps and potentially end up on the practice squad.
