The San Francisco 49ers are hosting a pre-draft visit with linebacker Kemoko Turay of Rutgers today, according to a report by Josh Norris of Rotoworld and NBC Sports.


Turay had 24 combined tackles, eight for a loss, and 7.5 sacks as a redshirt freshman in 2014. His next two seasons were relatively quiet. He recorded just 12 combined tackles in 2015 and 2016. As a senior in 2017, Turay registered 60 combined tackles, six for a loss, three sacks, a pass defensed, and two fumble recoveries through 12 games and nine starts. He finished his collegiate career with 10 tackles and 1.5 sacks against Michigan State on November 25, 2017.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-5 and 252-pound Turay had a 40-time of 4.65 seconds.

NFL.com projects Turay to be a second- or third-round draft pick.



Lance Zierlein of NFL.com, who compares Turay to Yannick Ngakoue, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Explosive edge defender with the coveted traits of an NFL pass rusher. Turay is still behind on feel and skill in that area and will need to develop a go-to move and a workable counter to beat NFL tackles. However, his ability to chase and tackle could translate right away. Turay splashed at Senior Bowl practices and certainly helped his cause to go on day two of the draft."

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

"Turay is an underrated edge prospect who could line up as a one-gap defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker. He possesses solid size and comes with a good amount of upside potential."
