With pick 208, the San Francisco 49ers select...
Arthur Moats, DE/OLB, James Madison.
Moats has been an absolute monster in the FCS, garnering CAA Defensive Player of the Year honors after putting up an eye-popping 23.5 Tackles For Loss, along with 11 sacks, 1 FF, and 1 FR which he returned 68 yards for a touchdown this year. Another FCS 1st-Team All American, Moats is sort of a poor-man's Brandon Graham, and he has racked up back to back years of double-digit sacks and at least 15 TFL. He will need to adjust to dropping into coverage in the NFL, but that's what coaches are for. He has all the talent and athleticism in the world and figures to clock in the 4.5's at the combine. Moats is catching the eyes of scouts at the Texas vs. Nation practices, being regarded as a player who can bring the heat on quarterbacks every time they drop back.
In Moats, the 49ers land their first pass-rushing prospect in the draft, and a guy who has tremendous upside and potential.
