The NFL Draft stands 10 days away, as teams prepare for crunch time by visiting with the hundreds of prospects in this years class.

One of the more speculated ones is receiver Dez Bryant, who isn't sure of his draft stock at this moment.

The Miami Dolphins seem to be the favorite for the top receiver in this class, but up to this point we aren't sure of any other potential contenders.

Could it be the San Francisco 49ers?

According to 49ers writer Matt Maiocco via his twitter account, Bryant is meeting with 49ers officials later tonight.

"WR Dez Bryant is scheduled to arrive in the Bay Area tonight and meet tomorrow morning with 49ers coaches and officials, league source confirms." - Maiocco

Bryant has visited with the Dolphins, Ravens, Steelers, Patriots, and others up to this point.

San Francisco could just be keeping an eye out for Bryant if he falls past Miami.

A few options could be taking Bryant at No. 13, followed by taking Kyle Wilson with the 17th overall pick.

They would add another star-powered receiver, along with improving the secondary.

The interesting question is whether or not the 49ers are strongly considering this.

Not only does Bryant have maturity problems, which doesn't go well with head coach Mike Singletary, but the front office selected receiver Michael Crabtree last year.

Though Bryant is better talent-wise, if he falls to pick No. 13, San Fran may be a possible destination for Bryant.
