A total of 323 draft prospects are invited to participate in this year's combine, which will take on a different format amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Unlike years prior, there will be no in-person workouts. Instead, any workouts will take place on individual pro days on college campuses.
Here's a breakdown of the invitees by position:
Running Backs: 25
Wide Receivers: 50
Tight End: 19
Offensive Line: 56
Defensive Line: 52
Defensive Back: 67
The San Francisco 49ers announced on Friday that the team has signed tight end Ross Dwelley and safety Marcell Harris to one-year extensions. Additionally, the team declined the 2021 contract option for linebacker Mark Nzeocha.
Dwelley (6-5, 235) appeared in all 16 games (nine starts) in 2020 and registered career highs in receptions (19) and receiving yards (245) to go along with one receiving touchdown. He also added three tackles on special teams. Harris (6-0, 215) saw action in a career-high 16 games (four starts) last season and finished with 29 tackles, three passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He also registered a team-high nine tackles and one fumble recovery on special teams.
