That's a big man.
Hmm. Niners meet first with Anthony Davis, then this Webb guy.
Think Singletary wants a RT in the draft this year?
I wonder if Solari has any part in this process? Are these guys that he wants?
One thing that Sing has been good about is knowing his own limitations and taking a lot of advice from his assistants, so I would assume Solari has a big part in all of this as well. Also remember that teams meet with 70+ players before the draft, but it doesn't necessarily mean anything.
Daniel Jeremiah, a former Browns and Ravens scout who blogs about the NFL now, said that teams may take players in for a workout in case they missed their pro-day, if it's a small-school guy who they want to get a better read on etc. So, with Webb being a small school guy, it's entirely possible that they just wanted to get a better feel for him and where his talents lie. Remember that when Shawntae Spencer was drafted, 25+ teams met with him beforehand, mainly because he was from a small school and not much was known about him. But, only one of those teams ended up drafting him.
I'm sorry but Pitt is not a small school.
Sorry, he wasn't from a small school, but he didn't attend the combine, so he had an incomplete draft grade from many teams, which is why they brought him in for visits.
No harm no foul
