49ers on hand for Georgia State CB Chandon Sullivan’s workout

Mar 17, 2018 at 11:20 AM--

Georgia State cornerback Chandon Sullivan wasn't able to participate in the school's pro day on March 6. The draft prospect took the field on Saturday, and the San Francisco 49ers were among 10 NFL teams on hand to evaluate him, according to Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst.

Other teams that traveled to watch Sullivan include the Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles, and Kansas City Chiefs.

"Sullivan, who still has some tightness in his hamstring, ran the forty in times which ranged from 4.48s to 4.51s," wrote Pauline. "That's a marked improvement from his combine time of 4.60s. He timed 7s in the 3 cone, touched 40 inches in the vertical jump (40.5 inches at the combine) and reached 11-feet-2-inches in the broad jump, tying his mark from Indianapolis.

"Sullivan was then put through positional drills by the San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles. The senior entered the season without being graded by NFL scouts but now stands as a solid last day pick."

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 5-foot-11 and 195-pound Sullivan had a 40-time of 4.60 seconds, a vertical jump of 40.5 inches, a broad jump of 134 inches, had 15 reps in the bench press, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.36 seconds.

Sullivan holds Georgia State records for interceptions (seven) and pass breakups (18), according to Lance Zierlein of NFL Media. He started 12 games for the Panthers last year and helped the team reach its first bowl win. Sullivan registered 46 combined tackles, an interception, and five passes defensed in 2017, according to Sports Reference. He also recovered a fumble and returned it for a touchdown.

In four seasons with Georgia State, Sullivan recorded 182 combined tackles, two sacks, seven interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), 18 passes defensed, and two fumble recoveries. projects that Sullivan to be a late Day 3 pick or possibly an undrafted free agent. Of course, his stock may have risen since that prediction.

Zierlein of had the following to say in his scouting report:

"Sullivan has decent size and has been a consistent contributor since his freshman season, but his average instincts and inability to stay in phase prevents him from making more plays on the ball. Sullivan isn't overly fast or physical and may need to play well at the Senior Bowl to help him prove he's an NFL-caliber talent."

The San Francisco 49ers are heading back to the playoffs for the first time since their 2019 Super Bowl run after a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory against the NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers were a 13-3 powerhouse in 2019, earning the #1 seed and a first-round bye, but this 2021 version, a 10-game winner and the 6th seed, may actually be better positioned to win it all than the 2019 squad.

Rookie quarterback Trey Lance got his second career start Sunday against the Houston Texans and came away with a convincing win. Lance was selected third overall in the 2021 NFL draft and is the heir to the throne as the future leader of the San Francisco 49ers. Sunday's matchup started a little rocky for the 49ers. It seemed there was a slight disconnect between Lance and head coach Kyle Shanahan early on. Kyle Shanahan told the CBS commentators that he's still learning how to call plays for Trey Lance and that it's going to be a process.Pretty clear that he didn't want to deal with that process in

14 'shaky' observations from the 49ers win over the Texans

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers were in a must-win situation. A loss to the Houston Texans would make a postseason berth much more difficult. And though the first half didn't exactly give fans a lot of confidence, the 49ers came back strong in the second half to win the game, 23-7. The team started off shaky, and the quarterback looked shaky for a while, but the 49ers (and that rookie quarterback) made enough plays in the end. Here are my 14 shaky observations from the 49ers win on Sunday: In case you hadn't heard, rookie quarterback Trey Lance made his second career start. He recorded his very first win as a starting quarterback. Lance looked like a rookie making only his second start. He looked lost at times, and made some poor decisions. But that's
