Indiana guard Dan Feeney visited 49ers

Apr 20, 2017 at 7:10 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers hosted Indiana guard Dan Feeney, per NFL Draft Diamonds. While they state that Feeney is "visiting" with the 49ers, we have to assume that the visit has already occurred since teams were no longer allowed to host draft prospects beyond Wednesday.


Feeney is not from the Bay Area. That means that he counts against the 49ers' limit of 30 hosted players. The 49ers are permitted to host up to 30 players for visits at the team's headquarters in Santa Clara, California. Visitors to the team's headquarters are not allowed to work out for the team unless they are local prospects.

Feeney started all 12 games at right guard for Indiana as a true freshman. A foot injury caused him to miss the 2013 season but he returned the next year. He allowed no sacks during his junior year, earning first-team All-Big Ten honors. During his senior year, he earned first-team All-American/Big Ten accolades.

Feeney has experience at right guard, which is his natural position, and right tackle, which he played at times during his senior year due to injuries at the position.



Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Feeney to Clint Boling, had the following to say in his scouting report:

"Four-year starter and two-time team captain, Feeney has been the consistent anchor along an Indiana offensive line that helped to produce NFL running backs Tevin Coleman and Jordan Howard. Feeney is a quality zone blocker with an ability to pull and lead the charge, but he might lack the play strength to become a reliable base blocker. His intelligence and ability to operate in space and protect the quarterback could make him an early starter with a ceiling of above-average NFL guard or center."

Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst had the following to say in his scouting report:

"Feeney was a tremendous college lineman and consistently dominated opponents. He had a terrific week during Senior Bowl practices lining up at both guard and center and moves towards the draft as one of the most NFL-ready blockers available."

Michael Silver took to Twitter on Friday to share his thoughts on the San Francisco 49ers' looming quarterback decision. Last month, the team traded up to the No. 3 overall spot to acquire a future replacement for Jimmy Garoppolo, who has struggled to stay on the field during his time in Santa Clara. Silver notes that he has been repeatedly asked about the pick and the 49ers' thinking. While it is NFL Network's policy not to "tip picks," he does have some thoughts based on what he has heard from around the league. 1) As per NFL Network policy, I am not allowed to "tip picks"... and, in any case, this is not

When longtime 49ers beat reporter Matt Barrows of The Athletic makes a guess this close to the draft on which player the team will select at pick three, it's certainly worthy of attention.

Barrows made his most recent selection for the 49ers in a recent beat reporter mock draft published by The Athletic. His pick was quarterback Mac Jones of Alabama, which is not the result many 49ers fans are hoping to see. Barrows talked about his choice

But he does have a personal preference for that pick, along with some thoughts on what factors the 49ers have been weighing throughout the decision-making process. Warner was a guest on The Rich Eisen Show Friday, days before he and the NFL Network will head to Cleveland, Ohio for this year's NFL Draft.

49ers fans won't find out for sure who their team will be taking at pick three in the 2021 NFL Draft until just after the first round begins on 5 p.m. PT on Thursday. Regardless, NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport believes there is currently a frontrunner for the distinction and that many around the league would be surprised if that frontrunner doesn't turn out to be former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones. Rapoport spoke recently about what he's hearing regarding pick three with 49ers senior reporter Keiana Martin. Among the tidbits he shared was his belief that a frontrunner exists and that the team would like to make sure everyone in the building is happy with the pick before making the final call. "My understanding was there was a leader in the clubhouse and this
