The 49ers enter the offseason with a need to upgrade their receiving corps, and they will get a close look at a wide range of playing styles at the Senior Bowl later this month.

The 49ers will coach the South team, and seven wide receivers were assigned to their team, the Senior Bowl announced.

Here is a look at the wide receivers who will be under the tutelage of the 49ers’ coaching staff for a week, concluding with the game in Mobile, Alabama, on Saturday, Jan. 26 (the remaining players will be assigned to the South and North rosters in the coming day):

David Sills V, West Virginia, 6-4, 210
The 49ers could certainly use a red-zone target, and that is what Sills provides with his length and strength. In his final two seasons, he caught 125 passes for 1,966 yards and 33 touchdowns. Coach Kyle Shanahan will want to see if Sills can create separation at all spots of the field.
Projected: Early rounds

Deebo Samuel, South Carolina, 6-0, 210
Samuels had a combined 121 catches for 1,665 yards in his sophomore and senior seasons, between an injury-plagued 2017. He also has value on kickoff returns, where he accounted for four touchdowns on 41 returns over this final three seasons.
Projected: Early rounds

Jaylen Smith, Louisville, 6-4, 223
Smith has good size and strength. The one-on-one drills will be crucial for Smith, as he must show speed and route-running ability. He put together a solid four-year career with 152 receptions for 2,505 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Projected: Mid-rounds


Tyre Brady, Marshall, 6-3, 206
Brady is a strong blocker who could be an asset to the 49ers in the run game, too. Like all of the bigger receivers, his ability to create separation will determine how high the 49ers place him on their draft board. In his final two years of college, he caught 133 passes for 1,944 yards and 17 touchdowns.
Projected: Mid-rounds

Travis Fulgham, Old Dominion, 6-3, 215
He has the frame and potential to build on what he did in college, as he must refine his route-running. He caught a career-best 63 passes for 1,083 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior.
Projected: Late rounds

Jalen Hurd, Baylor, 6-4, 229
Hurd has the kind of versatility that might inspire Shanahan to devise special packages for him. He rushed for 2,100 yards and 17 touchdowns over his first two seasons as a running back at Tennessee. He completed his college eligibility at Baylor as a wide receiver, where he caught 69 passes for 946 yards and four TDs as a senior.
Projected: Late rounds

Hunter Renfrow, Clemson, 5-10, 180
The 49ers already have Trent Taylor and Richie James. Renfrow is a reliable slot receiver. He was a steady performer during his four-year career, catching 186 passes for 2,133 yards and 15 touchdowns. His best season was as a junior, when he caught 60 passes for 602 yards.
Projected: Late rounds
