49ers set to host Martavis Bryant on Monday

Sammy Watkins may be expected to be among the first names called by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on May 8, which is going to put him out of reach of many teams looking for help at receiver next month.

One of those teams is likely going to turn toward Watkins’ Clemson teammate Martavis Bryant at a later point in the draft. It could be the 49ers, who are scheduled to meet with Bryant on Monday.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that Bryant, who is projected to be a second day pick, will be one of several players visiting with the teamGeorgia State wide receiver Albert Wilson, Central Florida running back Storm Johnson and Boston College offensive lineman Matt Patchan are also scheduled to meet with the team, while Oklahoma cornerback Aaron Colvin is scheduled to come in later in the week.

Bryant is 6-4 and ran a 4.42 40 at the combine in February, a combo he put to work as a big play artist across from Watkins last season. Bryant averaged 19.7 yards per catch on the year and a deep threat would fit nicely into a receiving corps headlined by Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. Per Barrows, Bryant has booked a total of 12 visits and will also meet with the Ravens, who could use the same kind of addition to their offense, this week.

    What’s the point?

    The Vikings will draft him before anyone else, because he actually has talent.

    Bryant is my guy. I think he could be the steal of the draft among WRs. He’s never talked about, but has great size, 4.34 speed and actual game experience.

    Somebody’s gonna get a good one.

    Ravens already have the speed guys. They need a clutch guy like Boldin….

    Sounds like a potential steal if we can get him. That’s exactly the type of weapon our offense is lacking. A big fast deep threat.

    Crabtree is our YAC guy, Boldin our solid sure handed vet and Bryant could be the one to take the top off of defenses. Plus we’ve got Lattimore and Carradine primed and ready to make an impact. Only a few more weeks to tell, this is going to be an exciting draft.

    GO NINERS!!!!!

    And the niners need a clutch guy like Wilson.

    Storm Johnson is a cool name.

    Not like we need another RB though.

    Hope he is better than AJ Jenkins then

    I like the idea, a speedy receiver to go alone with Crab and Boldin with VD isolated one on one with a linebacker or a safety. I’ll take it all day!!

    No we don’t need some cheesy dwarf scurrying fluke behind center. Wilson was just the missing cog in that shameful PED fueled group ot frauds.

    Go ahead and host whoever you want, the whiners will never hoist Lombardi again. #itsover #windowclosed

    If u think the hawks are gonna get home field every year and beat us on yhe last play e every time you are mistaken.. good luck next year but stop being a deush

  12. patriottony says: Apr 13, 2014 6:55 PM

    every bit as good as his teammate..Watkins,,,attended every game,,and this guy can climb the ladder (ala randy moss) to get the ball,,and plays in the end zone like a tight end..clearing space..

    There’s only one problem with Bryant. He can’t catch a cold. Seriously. If any of you watched Clemson you would know this dude is a late round pick and that’s it.

  14. toybkshr says: Apr 13, 2014 7:23 PM

    Does he have a rap sheet?

  15. bert1913 says: Apr 13, 2014 8:10 PM

    hey bryant, do not go to san fransico, they move about 50 miles away

    Last seen curbside at SFO, waiting for his ride, Mr. A. Smith.

    He’d be a great addition. Perfect size to win a jump ball with big mouthed Sherman. Perfect speed to burn him ala T.Y. Hilton. Seahawk fans don’t like it when you mention that name because he popped their massive egos.

  20. clintblairjr says: Apr 14, 2014 12:31 PM

    He is another troubled youth like Aldon plus he drops easy passes
