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.

49ers WRs set a franchise record against the Rams Sunday

In the 49ers' playoff-clinching performance against the division rival Los Angeles Rams, not only did the team secure a postseason berth, but they set a franchise record along the way. Last Sunday, San Francisco received not one, not two, but three 90-yard performances from wide receivers—Brandon Aiyuk, who led the team with six catches for 107 yards, Deebo Samuel, who had four catches for 95 yards, and Jauan Jennings, who had six catches for 94 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-tying TD late in the 4th quarter. Interestingly enough, it's the first time in franchise history that the feat of three 90+ yard performances from receivers has occurred in the same game, per Matt Barrows of the

Jimmy Garoppolo on 49ers in the playoffs: 'We know we have a chance to do something special'

Jimmy Garoppolo has certainly been through a lot of controversy in 2021, first surrounded by rumors in the offseason when the 49ers were relentlessly looking at options like Matthew Stafford, and then facing even more when the 49ers traded three first round picks to select Trey Lance with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Still, despite the overwhelming amount of negative attention, Garoppolo has remained a leader on the team, leading them to the playoffs with a gutsy 2-minute drill to tie Sunday's game against the Rams, before delivering the final blow with a field goal drive in overtime. Throughout the season, the 49ers locker room has remained strong, as seen through numerous post-game locker room speeches from Kyle Shanahan and Co., and Garoppolo

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.
