49ers NFL combine preview: Roster-building situation and a prospect to watch (paywall)

“How about Central Michigan’s Thomas Incoom? The 6-foot-4, 265-pounder exploded to 11 1/2 sacks over his recently concluded senior season. He looks to have a nice burst off the ball and very long arms, both traits that 49ers defensive line coach Kris Kocurek could absolutely work with opposite Bosa.”

49ers mock draft roundup ahead of NFL Scouting Combine

“Wake Forest wide receiver A.T. Perry is the only player who appears more than once between the mock drafts. The 6-foot-5 and 206-pound wideout surpassed 1,000 receiving yards in each of his last two seasons, accruing 2,389 total yards and 26 total touchdowns while averaging 15.7 yards per catch during his 2021 and 2022 campaigns.”

“We don’t know what Purdy is going to be in ‘23, but we’ll just do a year of Brady, and then we can go back to our model with [the] quarterback on a rookie deal and build around him,” Mike Silver told Colin Cowherd on The Colin Cowherd Podcast. “I think, if you’re the Niners, you ask Brady again. I think you let the dust settle for a while.”

NFL Competition Committee expected to discuss emergency QB rule, per report
