The San Francisco 49ers are hosting safety Kyzir White of West Virginia on Monday, according to a report by NBC Sports Bay Area.

In two years with the Mountaineers, White registered 152 combined tackles, 14.5 for a loss, four sacks, three interceptions, nine passes defensed, four forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.

Before his time with West Virginia, White played for Lackawanna College in Scranton, Pennsylvania, where he excelled. He earned third-team all-conference honors as a freshman in 2014. As a sophomore, White earned JUCO All-American accolades while recording 37 tackles, three interceptions, and four passes defensed in 10 games.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-2 and 218-pound White had a vertical jump of 35.5 inches, a broad jump of 113 inches, and had 21 reps in the bench press. Other measurables for White include an arm length of 31 5/8 inches and hands that measure 10 1/8 inches.

Kyzir's brother, Ka'Raun, a receiver, is also entering the draft. He is expected to be selected late during Day 3 or as a priority free agent, according to Lance Zierlein of NFL.com. Their older brother, Kevin, also a receiver, was a first-round pick by the Chicago Bears in 2015.

NFL.com projects White to be a second- or third-round draft pick. The 49ers currently own the 27th selection in the second round and two picks in the third.



Zierlein, who compares White to Michael Boley, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Like his brothers who also attended West Virginia, White was a late bloomer who was lightly recruited and began his journey at Lackawanna Junior College. Despite being a JUCO transfer, White has become a highly-respected team leader who leads by example with his fearless, physical play. Teams are looking to transition him into a hybrid role with the ability to cover tight ends like a safety and support the run like a linebacker. While he's nothing special as an athlete, his competitiveness and play-demeanor should earn him a spot as a starter."

Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, who compares White to Kam Chancellor, wrote the following about him:

"Kyzir White wins with competitive toughness and mental processing that allow him to fill a variety of roles. He's a relentless hitter who relishes opportunities to bang pads and will have no trouble transitioning to NFL contact. His size and athleticism are a blessing and curse, as he has the frame and skill set to be a moveable defender in the box but lacks the true speed to have a defined role in a defensive backfield. White's physicality in all three phases is his calling card and will be the ticket to his earning an early starting role."

Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst wrote the following within his scouting report:

"White has the size and temperament to play as a conventional strong safety or in a zone system and is a potential starter down the road."
