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."

By David Bonilla
Aug 9

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined KNBR after Tuesday's practice and started the conversation by praising a defensive teammate—Jimmie Ward. Ward might be the most underrated player on a defense boasting stars Nick Bosa and Fred Warner. The 49ers tight end knows how valuable the veteran safety is for the team, though. "I said [in a previous interview] Jimmie Ward might be one of the most underrated players in the NFL," Kittle said on the Papa & Lund show. "... When it's man coverage, you don't want Jimmie Ward on you because he's quick, he's physical, and he's really, really fast. He's got great hands, and he knows how to hold without getting holding calls. He's very good at that. "I'm very blessed to be able to go against
