Mississippi State receiver Polk headlines 49ers’ local pro day

“Polk totaled just 36 receptions for 478 yards and three touchdowns during his first two seasons at Cal. But he blew up during his one and only season at Mississippi State, shattering school records to pave the way for his early entry into the draft.”

‘He’s a real special talent’: WR Makai Polk headlines the 49ers’ local pro day (paywall)

“Polk spent Wednesday at Levi’s Stadium, one of 47 players on hand for the 49ers’ local pro day. He ran routes in front of new receivers coach Leonard Hankerson and caught passes from three local quarterbacks, including his former quarterback at Cal, Chase Garbers.”

49ers OT Mike McGlinchey shows rehab progress with workout video

“The video shows McGlinchey doing some running and weightlifting at 49ers facilities, accompanied with a comment on his progress that included some words of appreciation for teammate and training partner Javon Kinlaw, who is recovering from ACL reconstruction surgery.”

Deebo Samuel seeks about $25 million annually from 49ers, per report

“We’re told that Samuel, who is slated to make just under $4 million this season, will be looking for a contract in the range of about $25 million per year,” wrote Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network.

49ers to host pre-draft visit with Alabama RB Brian Robinson Jr.

“Robinson is a running back that requires a high volume of touches to really impact a football game. He is a one-cut back that can get vertical and use his power to run through arm tackles. One of Robinson’s best traits is his pass protection. In pass pro, Robinson is able to quickly and effectively pick up blitzing defenders. Overall, Robinson is a short-yardage running back that can consistently gash the defense for short-yardage gains.”

2022 NFL draft: An interesting idea for 49ers’ Round 2 selection

“There aren’t a ton of flaws with [TE Trey] McBride, who did a little bit of everything for Colorado State. He’s a good in-line blocker, but he’s athletic enough to move around the formation which would pair perfectly alongside Kittle, giving head coach Kyle Shanahan maximum flexibility with formations and play calls out of two-tight end sets. McBride would also be able to contribute right away.”

Former NFL Scout Not Sold On Christian Watson

“Watson barely was able to create enough separation against smaller school corners in man coverage at the intermediate route level. The throwing windows were tight.”

49ers go defense at No. 61 in Mel Kiper’s mock draft

““This is the 49ers’ debut pick in this draft, but this late in Round 2, they’re not going to be guaranteed to get a starter,” wrote Kiper. “They can take a need position, sure, but they shouldn’t reach to make it happen. Taylor-Britt makes sense because he has some raw tools with which to work and has the skill set to play multiple spots. He had 11 pass breakups last season. San Francisco signed Charvarius Ward but should add corner depth.””
