49ers News: 49ers to host Georgia State draft prospect WR Albert Wilson

With limited maneuverability this offseason, the 49ers news cycle has been searching for cost-effective depth at the wide receiver position.

Rather than looking at the remaining wideouts left on the 2014 NFL free agency market, the San Francisco 49ers may be looking to May's NFL Draft for answers.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the San Francisco 49ers will bring in Georgia State wide receiver Albert Wilson for a visit at a currently unspecified time.

Wilson is projected by most draft experts to land as either a late-round pick or as an undrafted free agent post-draft. He has an All-American selection to his credit, along with two All-Sun Belt conference honors.The potential 49ers target is the Georgia State record holder for most career receiving touchdowns with 26. He finished 2013 with 71 receptions for a robust 1,177 yards and eight touchdowns.

Wilson's size may be held against him by most NFL teams and experts (he stands at just five-foot-nine), however he could definitely be valuable as a speed option or as a kick returner. Wilson has run a low in the 40-yard-dash of 4.32, officially clocking in at the 2014 NFL Combine at 4.43 seconds.
