49ers will host pre-draft visit with Virginia Tech pass rusher Tremaine Edmunds

Apr 17, 2018 at 10:48 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers will hold a pre-draft visit with pass rusher Tremaine Edmunds of Virginia Tech this week, according to a report from the Sacramento Bee. As reported earlier, the 49ers are hosting former Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith today.

This week is the last that NFL teams can host draft prospects for visits. The 2018 NFL Draft kicks off next Thursday. Each NFL team is permitted to host up to 30 players for visits. Those players are not allowed to work out for the team unless they are local prospects.

Edmunds played in 13 games and started twice as a true freshman. That season, he registered 11 total tackles with 2.5 for a loss, according to Sports Reference. As a sophomore in 2016, Edmunds recorded 94 total tackles, 16.5 for loss, 4.5 sacks, three passes defensed, and an interception. As a junior in 2017, he had a college-career-best 108 total tackles, 14 for a loss, 5.5 sacks, two passes defensed, and three forced fumbles.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-5 and 253-pound Edmunds had a 40-time of 4.54 seconds, a broad jump of 117 inches, and had 19 reps in the bench press. Other measurables for Edmunds include an arm length of 34 1/2 inches and hands that measure 9 3/8 inches.

NFL.com projects Edmunds to be a first-round draft pick.

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com, who compares Edmunds to Brian Urlacher, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Edmunds combines elite size, speed and explosiveness into a productive, versatile linebacker package that will have evaluators salivating. Edmunds has posted high-impact production over the last two seasons and he still has room to get bigger and better. He will make mental mistakes and his instincts are subpar, but he has an ability to mitigate those issues with his athletic ability. Edmunds can play in any alignment at any linebacker spot and has All-Pro potential no matter where he lands."

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

"Edmunds was a playmaking linebacker the past two seasons at Virginia Tech and has the ability to be a dominant defender. His combination of size, athleticism and sheer force has next-level decision makers salivating. Edmonds offers potential at a variety of linebacker spots and is versatile enough to play in a number of defensive schemes as a three-down player."

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. "I think it's an amazing opportunity for all of us." Guido added that the 49ers are also working to have Levi's Stadium host another Super Bowl, possibly in 2026 (Super Bowl LX) or 2027 (Super Bowl LXI).

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
