49ers recently worked out Nevada guard Austin Corbett, per report

Apr 10, 2018 at 9:29 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers continue their pre-draft homework. One area they hope to solidify in the draft is the offensive line. After all, the team needs to protect its $137.5 million investment at quarterback.

The 49ers recently sent offensive line coach John Benton to Nevada to work out guard Austin Corbett, according to a report from the Sacramento Bee.

"Corbett was athletic enough to excel at left tackle in college but probably will move to guard [...] in the NFL," writes Matt Barrows. "He appears to be a legitimate candidate for the 49ers in the second round."

Corbett was a walk-on at the University of Nevada and took over for Joel Bitonio, who is currently with the Cleveland Browns. He started 48 consecutive games over his collegiate career playing left (36 games) and right tackle (12 games) for the Wolf Pack. As Barrows points out, Corbett is projected to move inside at the next level.

As a senior, Corbett was named first-team All-Mountain West. His mobility, which is important within 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, has been described as "above average."

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-4 and 305-pound Corbett had a 40-time of 5.15 seconds, a vertical jump of 28 inches, a broad jump of 106 inches, completed the three-cone drill in 7.87 seconds, had 19 reps in the bench press, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.5 seconds. projects Corbett to be a second-round draft pick.

Lance Zierlein of, who compares Corbett to John Greco, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Corbett won't blow you away with any of his measurables or play traits, but he's solid in most areas. Corbett is definitely sharp enough to move inside to guard or even center and has good technique, but his average to below average play strength and lack of length may be a concern. He has the size and talent to compete for a guard/center spot early on, but he may elevate above an average starter during his career."

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

"Corbett is not a flashy blocker but is an efficient, methodical lineman who consistently gets the job done. He projects to either guard or center at the next level and is one of the more underrated interior linemen in this year's draft, and he will quickly start in the right system."

49ers guard Laken Tomlinson focused on beating the Rams, not his contract situation

Laken Tomlinson has an opportunity to make a lot of money this offseason, putting his family in an even better situation. The San Francisco 49ers guard is scheduled to become a free agent during the upcoming offseason. There is no doubt that the team would like to retain one of its most consistent players. Tomlinson has started every game since Week 2 in 2017, the year San Francisco shipped a fifth-round draft pick to the Detroit Lions for the former No. 28 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. He'll likely earn a nice payday in the coming months. That isn't on his mind right now, though. Instead, Tomlinson and the 49ers are focused on making the playoffs. To do that, they have to pull off another regular-season sweep of the Los Angeles Rams on

Ambry Thomas makes a believer out of Shanahan, 49ers Faithful with game-sealing interception

The San Francisco 49ers had a long list of unexpected heroes in their 27-24 overtime win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, but none of them made for a better feel-good story than rookie cornerback Ambry Thomas. A third-round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft out of the University of Michigan, Thomas has come a long way in a short time for the 49ers after being used sparingly earlier in the year. Thomas was inactive for much of the first half of the season and only saw 20 total snaps on defense before Week 14, then was eventually pressed into action due to injuries and entered the starting lineup against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14. He had some struggles at first, but Thomas eventually came into his own and has been a significant contributor on defense ever

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo toughs it out to win OT thriller against the Rams

The San Francisco 49ers' decision to play quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Sunday against the rival Los Angeles Rams was heavily scrutinized from the start. And rightfully so. Garoppolo suffered a torn ligament in the thumb of his throwing hand during the Week 16 game against the Tennessee Titans. That injury will require surgery this offseason. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan felt confident with putting Garoppolo out there Sunday in a must-win matchup to make the playoffs. The uncertainty of that decision left many fans on edge leading up to and during the game at SoFi Stadium. When the 49ers fell behind by 17 points in the first half of the game, it appeared that head coach Kyle Shanahan's decision was going to be the nail in the coffin for their season, as
