  1. I wonder if the 49ers would look at him seen as though they have a good relationship. 49ers even had him working out with Trey Lance at his 2nd pro day before the draft. 9ers love a stable of TEs

  2. He’s a good blocker, decent possession receiver, his biggest problem is his speed … could actually do well at TE

  3. TEs also transition to be good tackles. Will Matthews be willing to gain another 60ls for his next conversation goal? In general, TEs coming from basketball have good success.
