The San Francisco 49ers may well wind up having the opportunity to pursue Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson in free agency, but if that doesn't work out, one of the wide receiver standouts of the NFL Scouting Combine could be an option, according to a report from Vincent Frank of Sportsnaut. Frank tweeted Monday he's hearing the 49ers will give Robinson a run if he becomes available, but if not, they could consider Courtland Sutton of SMU in Round 1 of the NFL Draft. The Jaguars announced Tuesday they would not be giving Robinson a franchise tag or transition tag, meaning he can become a free agent if the Jaguars do not sign him before the start of the league year on March 14. The Jaguars have until March 12 to negotiate with Robinson before other teams can begin negotiations through his agent. The 49ers would be one of several teams interested in Robinson, who at age 24 would be a rare example of a No. 1 receiver to hit the free agent market. Robinson is coming off a torn ACL, but he'd still get several teams showing heavy interest.
