No. 4: Wide Receiver Victor Bolden
Unlike Kendrick Bourne, wide receiver Victor Bolden does boast good speed — a trait head coach Kyle Shanahan covets.
Bolden underperformed a bit at the NFL Scouting Combine, running a 4.54 40-yard time. And his 5-foot-8 frame isn’t exactly worthy of red-zone consideration.
But Bourne does have special teams abilities, which increases his chances dramatically.

Efforts like these could seriously shake up the back end of the wide receiver depth chart, and it wouldn’t be the worst decision to keep exploring Bolden as a possibility.
