49ers at South Dakota pro day, meet with Tyson Graham

Mar 29, 2017 at 2:50 PM--


The South Dakota Coyotes football program held their pro day on Wednesday and the San Francisco 49ers were among the teams that were represented there, per NFL Draft Diamonds. Other teams on hand included the Detroit Lions, New Orleans Saints, and Green Bay Packers.


The 49ers showed interest in at least one South Dakota player. Linebacker/safety hybrid Tyson Graham, who reportedly had a good showing at the pro day, met with all four of the NFL teams.


NFL Draft Diamonds recently asked the 6-foot-2, 212-pound Pompano Beach, Florida native what traits separate him from others. "Physicality, being able to diagnose plays quickly, tackling, and versatility," Graham answered.

Graham compares himself to linebacker Deonne Buchannon of the Arizona Cardinals. "His physicality and versatility and just being able to be plugged in different positions all over the field and still have an impact on the game," he said.

"I'm the kind of the guy who comes in ready to work and get better day in and day out," Graham told NFL Draft Diamonds. "You won't have to worry about me off the field as well, as I know not only will my actions reflect myself but the team as well."

According to Christian Shanafelt of NFL Draft Bible, the 49ers ran the defensive back drills while the Saints ran the linebacker drills. Graham took part in both.

The San Francisco 49ers are excited about defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw's potential. While the rookie defender recorded just 1.5 sacks during his first NFL season, he showed flashes of being a powerful playmaker who could develop into an elite talent along the interior of the defensive line. "I think Kinlaw is going to be a dominant force in this league," John Lynch told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on The TK Show podcast. "I should say, 'is going to become,' because he's not there yet. He's shown flashes." Lynch knows a thing or two about impressive defensive-line play. He played behind a Hall of Famer in Warren Sapp. In fact, watching his former teammate cause

Brandon Aiyuk has John Lynch excited about the 49ers' future

By the end of the 2020 season, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk looked a lot more comfortable in the San Francisco 49ers offense and appeared ready to leap to becoming a dangerous offensive weapon. From Week 7 through Week 15, Aiyuk averaged 94.7 receiving yards per game through six appearances. To put that into perspective, maintaining that average throughout a 16-game season would clock in at 1,514 receiving yards. Aiyuk has just scratched the surface. That has 49ers general manager John Lynch excited. The young receiver would have benefited more from a normal offseason leading into his rookie year. That didn't happen, and it may have contributed to a slower start. "Brandon Aiyuk, he's everything we thought he would be, and a little bit more,"
