49ers Hosting Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown & South Carolina WR Deebo Samuel


According to Ian Rapoport, the 49ers will host Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown and South Carolina WR Deebo Samuel for pre-draft visits on Tuesday. 

Both players are candidates for the 49ers’ second-round pick at No. 36 overall as they look for more receiving help. The 49ers are also reportedly hosting Arizona State WR N’Keal Harry and Iowa State WR Hakeem Butler, per Matt Maiocco.

Brown, 21, is widely considered to be one of the top receiver prospects in the country and could end up being a first-round selection in April’s draft.

Brown has drawn comparisons to Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster

During his three-year college career at Ole Miss, Brown caught 189 passes for 2,984 yards receiving and 19 touchdowns.

Samuel, 5-11, 214 pounds, is widely seen as a top-50 player in this draft class and likely will hear his name called sometime during the second round. 

He’s drawn comparisons to Giants WR Golden Tate for his physical style of play. 

During his four-year career at South Carolina, Samuel caught 148 passes for 2076 yards (14.0 YPC) and 16 touchdowns. He also carried the ball 25 times for 154 yards and 7 touchdowns while adding 1219 total kick return yards in 30 games.
