They could take a running back with the No. 2 overall pick (they have been linked to LSU's Leonard Fournette), but they are also interested in Alabama LB Reuben Foster and Stanford DE Solomon Thomas.
If they do pass on a running back in the first round, San Francisco is among the teams in showing interest in Aaron Jones, a fast-rising prospect from UTEP, according to Kristian Dyer of the Sporting News.
Aaron Jones is one of the fastest risers among 2017 NFL Draft running back prospects. The UTEP product's busy schedule is proof that he's generating serious interest in the league.
Jones will work out with the Houston Texans this week, a source tells Sporting News, adding that the 5-9, 208-pounder also has had workouts with the San Francisco 49ers, New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys.
Jones ran for 1,773 yards and 17 touchdowns on 229 carries last season while catching 28 passes for 233 yards and three more scores.Back to the San Francisco 49ers Newsfeed
