No. 2: Wide Receiver Victor Bolden Jr.
Like Aaron Burbridge, wide receiver Victor Bolden has some value on special teams.
His return ability was on full display during the 49ers’ first preseason game in Kansas City, evidenced on this effort here:
Bolden, an undrafted free agent, does have some notable speed. But his 4.54 40-yard time at the NFL Scouting Combine isn’t elite, by NFL standards, although the ability to elude would-be tacklers is always a good sign.
There is a knock against Bolden, though, and it’s his smallish 5-foot-8 frame. San Francisco’s receivers are mostly short, which doesn’t help Bolden’s chances to make the roster.
But he has shown the ability to be explosive and make notable contributions on special teams, increasing his value to crack out the bottom of this position.
