Niners interested in Marshal Newhouse TCU OL

This gives me hope, the Niners had the most intense interview.

Newhouse Tours the NFL

TCU OL Marshall Newhouse, the cousin of the Cowboys' Robert Newhouse, spoke with quite a few teams on Wednesday night. The Cowboys, the Texans, the Chiefs, the 49ers and quite a few others. Newhouse two-stepped around the question of which position on the offensive line he feels more comfortable at. He believes he can play all five positions at the next level but started at tackle for three years. Newhouse attributed teams asking him to draw up plays as the most outside the box team request. He said the sessions got pretty intense, the most intense was with the 49ers.
why does an intense interview give you hope? i mean look how they grilled matt stafford last year to the point where he said it was kinda out of line. i just don't see how that relates to anything

Maybe I should have elaborated. I think or hope the Niners are paying more attention to players that will be available in rounds 3-7. The Niners new regime has done well in round 1 in general, but has whiffed in rounds 3 and beyond.

I think interviews are important. If a player does not the ability to pick up offenses quickly, they cannot contribute in the first season or two.

If they got him in the 6th or 7th he would be a steal. He has worked his way into the 3rd or 4th with his dominating performance in practice and in games at the East West Shrine Game.

If Mac can sign Sproles, it gives him an opportunity to go after Campbell and Iupati, thereby all but putting a ribbon on the OL upgrade. Any other OL would simply be for depth, which isn't a bad idea given how thin it is.
