Dorial Green-Beckham had pre-draft visit with 49ers, according to report

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers are doing their due diligence with regard to wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham. The sometimes troubled receiver conducted a visit with the team recently.

The San Francisco 49ers have some question marks at wide receiver, and that has led to them being connected with numerous pass catchers in the upcoming draft. Ian Rapoport is now reporting the team hosted Oklahoma/Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham for a visit. The team reportedly interviewed him at the NFL Combine, so this would be the logical next step to get a little more detail.

General manager Trent Baalke met with the media on Friday, and he had this to say about DGB:

He also addressed the 49ers reported need at wide receiver:

Baalke also said he did not think the team had any notable holes to fill in the draft, but is anybody really shocked he would say that?

I have to admit, I kind of want to see the 49ers draft DGB just to see the reactions in the media. We'll have to set the over/under at mentions of "class" in headlines and ledes at something like 1.5 or 2.5. It would primarily just be the columnists, so we'd be talking Lowell Cohn, Tim Kawakami and Ann Killion. There could be others as well, but most of the other 49ers writers are beat writers and would not get into that in the same manner. Color me intrigued!
