Kyle Calloway

A mid round guy, who actually held his own against Morgan--something Bulaga has been getting credit for from the media--and has a lot of experience across the line. Wanted to start a thread to discuss him, and see if people had thoughts because this may be a very intriguing option for us...especially if there is a run on OTs in the top 10 and we are left to choose between a 2nd rate OT or an elite player at another position at #13.

6'6''
323 lbs

33 1/4'' arm length (identical to Bulaga's but still on the shorter side)
22 reps on the bench
Played: RT, LT, LG

I could certainly see McCloughan taking a flyer on him if we are unable to resign Sims.

You get Calloway as someone who fights Baas for the starting LG spot, but as someone who can also play LT.

He fits the mold of Adam Snyder, except he's prob 10x better.

You're right about that, sorry got my facts mixed. good point
Calloway sounds a lot like Adam Snyder and would be a nice pickup in the middle rounds as a swing offensive lineman. Whether or not the Niners re-sign Sims will have an impact on their drafting a guy like Calloway.
Mike Mayock said yesterday that Kyle Calloway is very under-rated. He said that Calloway is not as polished as Bryan Bulaga, but he is a roadgrader, a run good blocker. A good player you could pick up most-likely in round 3.

#60 Kyle Calloway- Biography




Looks like a good mid-round pickup along the lines of a Chris Scott from Tennesse or John Jerry of Ole Miss.
