NFL Notes: 49ers, Browns, Dolphins, & Steelers



  • Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area doesn’t see the 49ers trading up for Alabama WR Amari Cooper in this year’s draft, given that the could use some more depth at other positions.
  • Maiocco points out that San Francisco tried to trade up for Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. last year.
  • As for signing more free agents, Maiocco believes the 49ers will be reluctant to add anyone that could cost them compensatory pick next year.
  • However, Maiocco adds that the 49ers could sign someone like WR Hakeem Nicks or LB Lance Briggs after May 12, which is when players will no longer count against team’s compensatory picks.
  • According to Maiocco, San Francisco is hoping WR Michael Crabtree signs elsewhere, which would likely result in them receive a compensatory pick next year.



  • Omar Kelly reports that the Dolphins hosted Hobart OL Ali Marpet for a visit last week.
