No. 3: WR DiAndre Campbell
Second-year pro DiAndre Campbell didn’t manage to get onto the field after being selected as an undrafted free agent a year ago, but things could change in 2016.
With former CFL wideout Eric Rogers sidelined with an ACL injury, Campbell is the type of player who could step up and assume a big-bodied receiving role for a position lacking proven talent. At 6-foot-2 and 206 pounds, Campbell has more than enough size to offset some of the smaller 49ers wideouts — see Bruce Ellington, 5-foot-9 and 197 pounds.
While Ellington will likely be a factor, the 49ers could still use players with size on their side.
Campbell fits the bill and, according to Chris Biderman of NinersWire.com, the second-year wideout has already developed something of a rapport with quarterback Blaine Gabbert in training camp:
Rogers’ misfortune may be the best thing to happen for Campbell’s chances to make the roster.
