Here's a guy that I really haven't seen mentioned much at all for an intriguing prospect, especially one that had a private workout for the 49ers. Obviously Kaepernick is familiar with him as they were together at Nevada for 2 seasons. He doesn't have great size, but not terrible either at 5'11" and 200 pounds. He has good athletic ability, running the 40 in 4.4, with a good vertical as well. He's a track guy that has blossomed into a very good football player. An aggressive safety that loves to hit and comes up to attack the run in a hurry, but also a guy who is quite capable and competent in man coverage. He shows good agility in coverage and can hang with slot receivers and tight-ends alike. He played both safety positions as well as some cornerback for Nevada.
He's got some character issues, mostly minor boneheaded stuff as the result of being young and stupid, but character wise he seems to have a good reputation amongst the Wolfpack players and coaches. I'm sure Kaepernick could fill in the blanks on this guy even better.
Ultimately he looks like a very nice safety prospect that could be had in the 4th round. He has limited special teams experience as a kick returner but is a smart, aggressive player that could find a home with the 49ers about a month from now.
