Fair enough...I only saw a couple of his games.

6'0, 200lbs. sub 4.4 40yd dash, Hits like a truck, skills like a CB

"The San Francisco 49ers have changed the position of CB Cory Nelms to safety, after he put on about 10 pounds during the season."

What's the scouting report on this guy? Those are some pretty athletic numbers. How was his career at the U? Was he on our practice squad all season?

Nelms was actually originally considered to be a safety prospect coming out of college. I think we were going to try him at corner first. Now that we have depth there, I think it makes extra sense to develop Nelms at safety -- a place where he is not only probably a better fit, but also a place where we could use the competition and a player to develop as depth.

The current roster has Nelms still listed as a corner, not a safety.

Not sure if that means all that much.

If we could get Markelle Martin from OK State in the mid to late rounds I'd be excited.
FS Blake Gideon Texas. I think he will be a sleeper. He was the only decent defender last year. He only had like 2 picks, but he was always around the football and is an awesome tackler. His sophomore year he had 7 picks. Its tough to get picks when opposing QBs have so many places to throw the ball.
