Another day, another round of potential wide receiver reinforcements being brought into 49ers camp. With Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel and Richie James Jr. all currently on the shelf (not to mention Jalen Hurd who is out indefinitely with a torn ACL) the 49ers have taken flyers on Tavon Austin, J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown in recent weeks.

According to Ian Rapoport, the team is working out four more on Tuesday.

Kevin White, 28, is the most notable of the group, a former first-round pick by the Bears in 2015, who was placed on the Injured Reserve at the beginning of each of his first three NFL seasons. He’s appeared in just 14 games as a pro, catching 25 passes for 285 yards.

Though more obscure to the casual fan, Johnny Holton and Justin Hardy have more NFL experience under their belt. Hardy, 28, appeared in every game for the Falcons the past four seasons, averaging about 20 catches per year as depth receiver. Holton, 29, has seen action with the Raiders and appeared in 16 games for the Steelers last year, but caught just three passes.

River Cracraft is the most obscure, having never caught a pass in an NFL game. He returned 12 punts and three kickoffs for the Broncos in 2018.
