San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke has made no secret of his preference for players with long arms. Baalke was on the record in 2011 praising 49ers LB Aldon Smith for having 35 3/8-inch arms, citing how it improved his chances of making shoestring tackles. San Francisco's 2013 rookies averaged 34-inch arms.
Wide receiver is a position of need for the 49ers in the upcoming NFL Draft, so they could show first-round interest in Texas A&M's Mike Evans and Florida State's Kelvin Benjamin, whose arms measure 34 7/8 inches and 35 1/8 inches, respectively.

"You got to be prepared to make the pick at 30, which we're prepared to do. You see how the board falls. We certainly have more than one person. But there is one in particular that we feel will be there. And if he is, we'll be prepared to make the pick."
