Round 7, Pick 11: 49ers select Miami DB Adrian Colbert

Apr 29, 2017 at 2:55 PM--


With the 11th pick in the seventh round (229 overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers have selected Miami defensive back Adrian Colbert.

Colbert originally signed to play at Texas but injuries and changes to the coaching staff influenced his decision to go to Miami. The transition in schools also forced a transition from playing safety to cornerback. Colbert finished the 2016 season with 22 tackles, one interception, and three passes defended through seven games.

"That's one of the biggest question marks for Adrian Colbert going into the 2017 NFL Draft," wrote Russell Brown of FanSided back in January. "The injuries even date back to when he was a kid. At the age of 9, he was in a bicycle accident and spent more than a week in a coma. He then has the scars from surgery on a broken arm and meniscus tear in his knee. However, despite all that, he's still standing and playing strong. No doubt, he's one of the toughest guys on the gridiron."





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

"Colbert showed a lot of progress in his game last season before going down with injury and has the size and skill to line up in dime packages on Sundays."

One week after riding a remarkable comeback win over the Los Angeles Rams to a spot in the postseason, the San Francisco 49ers almost found themselves on the opposite side of the spectrum in Sunday's Wild Card showdown against the Dallas Cowboys. But after being in control for much of game before losing momentum in the fourth quarter, the 49ers were able to fight off a

The San Francisco 49ers almost allowed late mental errors to let it slip away but held on to win a Wild Card playoff game on the road that they had controlled for most of the contest. Niners have no time to rest on laurels as they must contend with a short week and travel to the frozen tundra to face a well-rested Packers team led by likely MVP Aaron Rodgers.

The San Francisco 49ers pulled off one of the most improbable, surreal and memorable playoff wins in their storied history without the benefit of an offensive touchdown but all the resolve of a team that is making a habit of never giving up and finding a way to win no matter the situation. How difficult will it be for the Niners to defeat the Los Angeles Rams for the third time this season, second time at SoFi in three weeks, seventh time in a row, with a chance to play in the Super Bowl at SoFi?

49ers Notebook: Could 49ers mark end of the road for Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady? Arik Armstead the baller; Deebo's big run; Outcome never in doubt?

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to
