Apr 16, 2018 at 10:11 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers hosted a pre-draft visit with linebacker Fred Warner from BYU, according to a report from NBC Sports Bay Area. Warner has also visited with the New York Jets, Denver Broncos, and Miami Dolphins.


In four seasons with the Cougars, Warner registered 262 combined tackles, 32.5 for a loss, 6.5 sacks, seven interceptions, two touchdowns, 13 passes defensed, three forced fumbles, and five fumble recoveries, according to Sports Reference. In his last two seasons with BYU, he recorded 173 total tackles, 19.5 for a loss, 2.5 sacks, and four interceptions. In 2016, Warner was named a first-team All-Independent. Last year, he had three games with at least 10 combined tackles.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-3 and 227-pound Warner had a 40-time of 4.64 seconds, a vertical jump of 38.5 inches, a broad jump of 119 inches, completed the three-cone drill in 6.9 seconds, had 21 reps in the bench press, a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.28 seconds, and a 60-yard shuttle time of 11.77 seconds.

NFL.com projects Warner to be a third- or fourth-round draft pick.



Lance Zierlein of NFL.com, who compares Warner to Alani Fua, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Warner's future success could largely depend on who takes him and how they use him. While most will view him as an outside linebacker, Warner moves around like a big safety. With his instincts and cover skills in space, finding a hybrid role in sub-packages might be where he is best utilized. Warner's size, speed and workout at the Combine may play into his draft value more heavily than many other prospects. Warner should find immediate work as a backup who can help on special teams."

The San Francisco 49ers announced that the team's home venue, Levi's Stadium, has been selected to be among the NFL stadiums to host the FIFA World Cup in 2026. "We have been bidding on the World Cup for 2026," team president Al Guido said last week during the 49ers' State of the Franchise event, which was shared with fans on Wednesday.

PFF's 2020 re-draft has 49ers passing on Javon Kinlaw for cornerback help

Fans like to play "What If," wondering what things might be like had their favorite team opted for a different choice at a pivotal moment. Fans aren't the only ones, though. Take former San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, for instance. His missed interception of a Matthew Stafford pass intended for receiver Van Jefferson in the NFC title game might have sent the Niners back to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "That's a play I should make in my sleep, and I didn't make it," Tartt said after the game. "... I know that was a big play in the game, a big opportunity for me and for the team, and as a player, I just feel like I let my brothers down." Had Tartt made the play, maybe the 49ers win their sixth



49ers explain why they hit the mark on Oren Burks, Ray-Ray McCloud, and George Odum signings

The offseason free agent additions by the 49ers of linebacker Oren Burks, wide receiver/return specialist Ray-Ray McCloud and safety George Odum may not have generated a huge amount of buzz among the team's fans, but 49ers coaches couldn't be more excited with the fact they were able to add all three of those players to the roster. That's because the 49ers headed into the offseason with a desire to improve on special teams while adding depth at each one of those positions, and Burks, McCloud and Odum were highly-ranked targets for the 49ers in each area. And so far, each player has exceeded the expectations surrounding them when they were brought aboard. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and special teams coordinator Brian Schneider spoke during the team's recent
