49ers have pre-draft visit set up with Yale LB/S Foye Oluokun

Apr 4, 2018 at 11:43 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers were among seven NFL teams at Yale's pro day on March 30. While 49ers representatives watched linebacker Matt Oplinger, they also had their eye on Foye Oluokun. Oluokun is scheduled to have a pre-draft visit with the 49ers, according to Dane Brugler of NFLDraftScout.com.

Oluokun also has visits scheduled with the Kansas City Chiefs, Indianapolis Colts, Seattle Seahawks, and Arizona Cardinals. NFL teams see him as a potential fit at linebacker or safety.

The 6-foot-1, 230-pound linebacker ran a 4.56-second 40-yard dash, had a 37-inch vertical jump, and a 10-foot-3 broad jump during the pro day in New Haven, Connecticut.

Oluokun was the recipient of Yale's Charles Loftus Award for the most valuable freshman in 2013 after a season with 59 combined tackles, one for a loss, and four passes defensed. In 2014, he appeared in 10 games and registered a career-high 79 combined tackles, 1.5 for a loss, two interceptions, a blocked kick, and two passes defensed. Oluokun played in just three games in 2015 and missed the rest of the season due to an injury.

In 2016, Oluokun made 75 tackles, two for a loss, an interception, and seven passes defensed in nine games. As a senior in 2017, he recorded 50 combined tackles, nine for a loss, two forced fumbles, an interception, and four passes defensed in 10 game appearances.

Oluokun was not invited to the Shrine Game, Senior Bowl, or combine.

"From the outside looking in, my story, I'm a long shot," Oluokun told CBS Denver. "But growing up with me and being around me, I wouldn't think I'm a long shot at all."

The 49ers are permitted to host up to 30 players for visits at the team's headquarters in Santa Clara, California. Visitors are not allowed to work out for the team unless they are local prospects.

PFF's 2020 re-draft has 49ers passing on Javon Kinlaw for cornerback help

Fans like to play "What If," wondering what things might be like had their favorite team opted for a different choice at a pivotal moment. Fans aren't the only ones, though. Take former San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, for instance. His missed interception of a Matthew Stafford pass intended for receiver Van Jefferson in the NFC title game might have sent the Niners back to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "That's a play I should make in my sleep, and I didn't make it," Tartt said after the game. "... I know that was a big play in the game, a big opportunity for me and for the team, and as a player, I just feel like I let my brothers down." Had Tartt made the play, maybe the 49ers win their sixth

The San Francisco 49ers have faced some serious roster turnover with their offensive line, as left guard Laken Tomlinson went to the New York Jets in free agency, while center Alex Mack chose to retire after one season with the organization. In addition, right tackle Mike McGlinchey is coming off a torn quadriceps injury that sidelined him for the second half of the 2021 NFL season, although head coach Kyle Shanahan believes the Notre Dame product should be ready for training camp. Earlier this week, PFF's Mike Renner conducted his offensive line rankings for 2022 with several tiers: Minor or no weaknesses(tier 1), high floor(tier 2), high-end potential(tier 3), at

PFF: 49ers QB Trey Lance one of players under most pressure to perform in Year 2

While there are several success stories of rookies flourishing immediately in the NFL, there are certain players, especially quarterbacks, whose learning curves require some more seasoning. Take Peyton Manning, who threw for 28 interceptions in his rookie year before becoming one of the best quarterbacks of all time, as an example. Earlier this week, PFF named ten players from the 2021 NFL Draft class that are under the most pressure to perform in Year 2, and unsurprisingly, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance was amongst the group. Lance, who was selected third overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, played

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo ranked as 25th-best deep-ball passer

After being subject to a number of trade rumors this offseason, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains a member of the organization, although the franchise has made it clear that they've attempted to move on from the veteran signal-caller. One of the reasons that San Francisco could be looking to move on is due to Garoppolo's inability to consistently complete deep passes, which has hindered the 49ers on several occasions, most notably during the 49ers' Super Bowl loss to the Kansas City Chiefs during the 2019 NFL season. Earlier this week, PFF ranked the 2021 starting quarterbacks' deep passing by various
