The San Francisco 49ers are hosting a pre-draft visit with former Florida State cornerback Tarvarus McFadden today, according to a report by Josh Norris of Rotoworld.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-2 and 198-pound McFadden had a 40-time of 4.67 seconds, a vertical jump of 38.5 inches, and a broad jump of 121 inches. projects McFadden to be a fifth- or sixth-round draft pick.

Lance Zierlein of, who compares McFadden to Patrick Robinson, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Press corner with long arms and disruptive qualities but lacking in foot quickness and makeup speed. McFadden put together a highlight reel of impressive interceptions with NFL-caliber ball skills, but his ball production dropped sharply this year. On top of that, his 4.68 forty at the Combine seemed to prove what the tape showed regarding his long speed or lack thereof. McFadden has cover talent, but may be forced into a zone scheme to cover up for his speed concerns. McFadden will need to tighten up his coverage technique and become a much better tackler in order to find meaningful snaps as a pro."

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

"McFadden possesses the size and ball skills to play at the next level, but playing speed is a concern. He offers possibilities in bump-and-run and potentially zone coverage but must be protected due to his lack of speed."

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
