Wideouts Davante Adams, Jerry Rice Jr. highlight 49ers' "local" pro day

A year ago, Nate Montana was one of the draft hopefuls who performed for 49ers coaches at the team's "local" pro day. This year, Jerry Rice Jr. will run routes and catch passes on the same practice field on which his famous father performed two decades ago.

Rice Jr. transferred to UNLV after four years with UCLA. He had 11 catches and one touchdown last year. While he might have a famous name, another wideout on hand today, Davante Adams of Fresno State, figures to be one of the first receivers drafted next month, perhaps in the first round. He led the nation with 131 catches last season, and the big-bodied leaper -- Adams also was a high school basketball star -- had 24 touchdowns.

Adams is from Palo Alto, which makes him eligible to attend today's event. In fact, he and Jim Harbaugh both played at Palo Alto High and had the same high school coach, Earl Hansen.

Others on hand either grew up in the Bay Area or went to one of the schools here. That list includes Stanford products like linebacker Shayne Skov and defensive end Ben Gardner, whom the 49ers likely would use as an outside linebacker. San Jose State's David Fales also will attend as will a couple of Sacramento State players, wideout Morris Norrisse and guard Tyler Worthley.
