49ers conducted a workout with CB Isaiah Oliver of Colorado

Apr 6, 2018 at 9:04 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers recently conducted a workout with cornerback Isaiah Oliver from Colorado, according to a report by the Sacramento Bee.

In three seasons with the Buffaloes, Oliver registered 82 combined tackles, 24 passes defensed, three interceptions, and a forced fumble in 31 games, per Sports Reference. He started twice in 2016 but played behind current 49ers cornerback and 2017 draft pick, Ahkello Witherspoon, while also working as a punt returner for a portion of the season. During Oliver's junior year in 2017, he recorded 26 combined tackles, two interceptions, and 12 passes defensed in 10 games, which earned him first-team All-Pac-12 honors.

"He also has nearly 34-inch arms, which is extremely long -- and coveted -- at the position," wrote Barrows. "The problem is that he's unlikely to be available when the 49ers pick in the second round."

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot and 201-pound Oliver had a 40-time of 4.5 seconds. Other measurables for Oliver include an arm length of 33 1/2 inches and hands that measure 9 3/4 inches.

NFL.com projects Oliver to be a first- or second-round draft pick.



Oliver ranks as NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah's 32nd-best prospect heading into the draft. He wrote the following about the cornerback within his top 50 prospects list:

"Oliver has excellent size, length and speed for the position. He's at his best in press coverage. He shoots his hands and re-routes wide receivers before staying on their hip down the field. He has plenty of speed to carry vertical routes. From off coverage, he has some stiffness when he has to open up and change directions. He has good ball awareness down the field (see: pass breakup against UCLA). I love his aggressiveness and physicality in the running game. He fights through blocks and he's a reliable tackler in space. Oliver has the ideal skill set to thrive as a press cornerback at the next level. He needs to improve his flexibility and transition movement in off coverage."

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com, who compares Oliver to Artie Burns, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Oliver possesses an outstanding combination of size, speed and length and those traits are highly coveted by NFL general managers. There are coverage holes in Oliver's game and he needs to play with increased toughness, but he's just scratching the surface of what his talent could allow him to do on the next level with more experience and technique work. Oliver has a high ceiling as a bump-and-run, lockdown corner, but might benefit from a limited role his rookie season."

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. Let's compare the offensive position groups from each season to see who has the edge.

49ers and Trey Lance Have Some Work to Do

By Chris Beno

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
