Though Barrows could see Bourne having an offensive role, he notes that the 49ers’ coaches want to see if Bourne has the “drive and ambition” to be a reliable player.
Barrows believes that third-round LB Fred Warner could push LB Malcolm Smith for a starting spot. However, Barrows admits that the 49ers are comfortable with Smith and Reuben Foster as their starting inside linebackers.
According to Barrows, it’s possible the 49ers could have interest in Virginia Tech CBAdonis Alexander, who is entering this year’s supplemental draft.
