The San Francisco 49ers met with four players following Thursday's 2018 Senior Bowl practices, according to Charlie Campbell of Walter Football. Thursday's practices were the final sessions of the week for the North and South squads.

Campbell notes that while NFL teams try to speak with as many players as possible, there are a select few who they talk with at length during scheduled interviews.

"Typically, these interviews with area scouts are to set up longer, formal interviews for a night during the week," writes Campbell.

On Wednesday, 49ers general manager John Lynch, who is attending the Senior Bowl for the first time, explained why observing the practices is so important.

"There is definitely something to seeing someone in person," Lynch said. "You see things on film, and the film doesn't lie, but sometimes you just get a little different perspective in person. It's always the best way to see guys. This is, I think, why this is such a great opportunity. They're actually playing football. They're not running 40s."
