He's a rotational edge player with good speed who was a 3rd rd draft pick by the 9ers in 2015.

We could maybe be looking at him to play SAM as a backup too?

I remember him, he was projected to go in the high 2nd round but fell to the 3rd. Wasn't he an OLB coming out?

I think he's still on the table...his medical should be out this month sometime

Yes, and I'm thinking he'll probably be used more in that role than as a hand in the dirt player.

I like this if it’s on the cheap. Still hope we sign Ziggy Ansah also.

Can’t be more than a couple million.  Just a rotational guy

Another one year deal contract...no harm.If he blows up this summer,Alexander might be his back up.

Just read his profile. Has potential, I'm rooting for the kid.

Definitely don’t think he’s here to play end, this is a great pre draft signing to fill a role in case they can’t land who they want in the draft. I like Beanes aggressiveness and backup plans

Ziggy has his shoulder checkup this week or next week I heard. He won’t sign anywhere until then but I think there’s a chance he comes here

49ers drafted him to be a 3-4 OLB so size / speed (4.61 40) there to be SAM possibly?  Maybe backs up Zo (played SAM in 24 starts in 16/17 with 49ers) or competes for backup DE.   Was a backup DE in Detroit last year with no starts .  

 

Availability and versatility in a depth player is a good thing!  He did sack Tom Brady twice vs Pats last year!  Beats the Pats LT Brown badly here!

Lol my 4th DE in Madden.  Good Height, Weight, Speed.  Outside of him in the game dont know much. Imo brings more to the team as a pass rusher than Yarborough.

I kind of like all these 1 and done contracts for younger players with starting experience. Doesn't lock us down, counts towards comp pick calculation and if we find a gem we have a ton of cap space to re-sign.

Really light for a DE.

Agreed. Same weight (245 lbs) as Lorenzo Alexander and 2" taller.  Really see OBD looking to try him as Zo's backup this year.  Some amazing #s at Combine in 2015.  Good edge setter versus Run at SAM per 49ers reports.  Basically a one year audition.  

 

4.60 SEC in 40
35.0 INCH vertical
123.0 INCH broad jump
7.07 SEC 3 cone drill
4.16 SEC 20 yd shuttle
11.81 SEC 60 yd shuttle

For all those saying he'll likely play SAM for the Bills: I doubt it.

When the Bills sign players, they tend to list them on their little publicity graphics as the position they will play for the team. For instance, Maurice Alexander, even though he's primarily been a safety in his career, was listed as a linebacker. The fact that Harold is listed as a DE leads me to believe that he'll be playing DE.

Solid get -as are all the FAs signed this year. Still need another one and if we can sign one before the Draft, it locks in DT @ 9 for me.
