It's officially combine week in the NFL. The time of year that teams and the fans react to all those measurables that are expected to propel players into stars.  The players participating in the combine use this time to jump up draft boards. It will be intriguing to see what players make moves up mock drafts.

In recent mock drafts, the 49ers have been linked to a few intriguing names who will participate in the combine. The name that pops up most often is Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell. The WR position has been a trouble spot for the 49ers for years now and Treadwell looks like a good pick if he is available. He is a big, strong receiver with good hands and ball skills. Torrey Smith is the only proven receiver on the team unless Anquan Boldin resigns. Treadwell has been compared to Dez Bryant in his physical attributes. The 49ers could use a receiver in that mold.

Another name that has shown up often is UCLA LB Myles Jack, but he will not participate at the combine. Jack was a star at UCLA before an injury (meniscus) derailed his season. He is a gifted athlete who could potential partner with LB NaVorro Bowman. His speed and athletic ability makes him valuable in coverage. The biggest issue with Jack will be his medical report. He will not participate at the combine, but he will be ready for the season if reports are correct. If Jack can live up to his potential, another great LB duo can be in the making.
