The San Francisco 49ers wrapped up their local pro day on Wednesday. Cornerbacks Kevin King of Washington and Chidobe Awuzie of Colorado were not among the attendees despite being from the Bay Area. However, the two will visit with the 49ers for workouts next week, according to 49ers general manager John Lynch. Lynch met with the media following the local pro day workout.

King, who did not allow a single touchdown in 2016, had 44 tackles, two interceptions, and 13 passes defended during his senior year. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound cornerback started his college career as a safety, starting twice as a true freshman. He did not miss a game during his senior year.

"There are inconsistencies to his game, and he may struggle underneath against quicker, shifty receivers, but he could become a high-level shutdown player deep down the field and has the ball skills to create turnovers as well as just limit receptions," writes Pro Football Focus.

Awuzie, who is 6-foot-0 and 202 pounds, led all cornerbacks in 2015 with 41 tackles resulting in a defensive stop. Over four seasons with Colorado, he has compiled 265 tackles, three interceptions, and 28 passes defended through 48 games.

"Awuzie has the coverage skills to be a starter in the NFL, but he does still need to iron out a few parts of his game if he is to reach there." writes Pro Football Focus. "He needs to improve his technique as a tackler, and as much as he has improved at getting his hands on the ball, it would be nice to see him come away with more interceptions. Nevertheless, he is another top prospect in a deep cornerback class."
