The San Francisco 49ers hosted a pre-draft visit with linebacker Fred Warner from BYU, according to a report from NBC Sports Bay Area. Warner has also visited with the New York Jets, Denver Broncos, and Miami Dolphins.


In four seasons with the Cougars, Warner registered 262 combined tackles, 32.5 for a loss, 6.5 sacks, seven interceptions, two touchdowns, 13 passes defensed, three forced fumbles, and five fumble recoveries, according to Sports Reference. In his last two seasons with BYU, he recorded 173 total tackles, 19.5 for a loss, 2.5 sacks, and four interceptions. In 2016, Warner was named a first-team All-Independent. Last year, he had three games with at least 10 combined tackles.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-3 and 227-pound Warner had a 40-time of 4.64 seconds, a vertical jump of 38.5 inches, a broad jump of 119 inches, completed the three-cone drill in 6.9 seconds, had 21 reps in the bench press, a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.28 seconds, and a 60-yard shuttle time of 11.77 seconds.

NFL.com projects Warner to be a third- or fourth-round draft pick.



Lance Zierlein of NFL.com, who compares Warner to Alani Fua, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Warner's future success could largely depend on who takes him and how they use him. While most will view him as an outside linebacker, Warner moves around like a big safety. With his instincts and cover skills in space, finding a hybrid role in sub-packages might be where he is best utilized. Warner's size, speed and workout at the Combine may play into his draft value more heavily than many other prospects. Warner should find immediate work as a backup who can help on special teams."
