49ers host Pittsburgh OT Brian O’Neill for pre-draft visit

Apr 11, 2018 at 5:20 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are hosting tackle Brian O'Neill of Pittsburgh on Wednesday, according to a report from NBC Sports Bay Area.

O'Neill, a tight end and defensive end in high school, was a tight end during his redshirt season in 2014. He moved to offensive tackle before the 2015 season, started 12 games, and continued to start in 2016. O'Neill took over as the starting left tackle in 2017 due to injuries along the offensive line and went on to earn All-ACC honors.

Matt Maiocco mentioned O'Neill's athleticism. The offensive lineman carried the football twice in 2016 and scored a rushing touchdown each time.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-7 and 305-pound O'Neill had a 40-time of 4.82 seconds, a vertical jump of 29.5 inches, a broad jump of 107 inches, completed the three-cone drill in 7.14 seconds, had 22 reps in the bench press, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.5 seconds. Other measurables for O'Neill include an arm length of 34 1/8 inches and hands that measure 9 3/8 inches. projects O'Neill to be a second- or third-round draft pick.

Lance Zierlein of, who compares O'Neill to Jake Fisher, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"O'Neill has good length and is a terrific athlete, but his inconsistencies at the Senior Bowl practices will be hard for teams to get out of their minds. What might be even more troubling is the way he seemed to panic and lose technique in certain matchups. O'Neill is a classic zone scheme blocker, but teams may take a look at him as a move guard with tackle potential rather than locking in with him as a blind-side tackle. O'Neill needs to get thicker and stronger or swing tackle could be his ceiling."

Brian Baldinger saw 'John Elway-type' throws from 49ers rookie Trey Lance

It's safe to say that NFL Media analyst Brian Baldinger was impressed with San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance during Sunday's win over the Houston Texans. It had been nearly three months since the 21-year-old passer's last—and only—start. During that Week 5 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, Lance completed just 51.7 percent of his passes. That number improved to 69.6 percent against the Texans. "I thought he was good," Baldinger said Tuesday morning on 95.7 The Game's The Morning Roast when asked about Lance's play from the pocket. "I can't find any glaring mistakes from Trey this past weekend. I thought he saw the field really well, considering he hadn't really played in three months. ... I thought he threw the ball with real touch when he

The San Francisco 49ers hope to extend their winning streak against the Los Angeles Rams to six games on Sunday. A victory would clinch a playoff berth for Kyle Shanahan's squad. However, a loss paired with a New Orleans Saints win would end its 2021 campaign. Respected NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger not only expects the Niners to start quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, but he predicts the 49ers will beat the Rams again. "I've got the 49ers winning 27-24," Baldinger told 95.7 The Game's Damon Bruce and Ray Ratto. "… I'm going with the 49ers." The home-team Rams are currently 3.5-point favorites in the playoff-impacting Week 18 clash between the NFC West rivals. Yet, Baldinger sounds pretty confident in Shanahan, Garoppolo, and the
