Apr 18, 2018 at 9:19 AM--

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.

McFadden allowed seven touchdowns during his sophomore year, which was his first as a starter. However, he also accumulated eight interceptions, which led the NCAA. In 2017, he registered 30 combined tackles with 10 passes defensed but failed to pick off a quarterback.

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."

The 49ers were a 13-3 powerhouse in 2019, earning the #1 seed and a first-round bye, but this 2021 version, a 10-game winner and the 6th seed, may actually be better positioned to win it all than the 2019 squad.

Rookie quarterback Trey Lance got his second career start Sunday against the Houston Texans and came away with a convincing win. Lance was selected third overall in the 2021 NFL draft and is the heir to the throne as the future leader of the San Francisco 49ers. Sunday's matchup started a little rocky for the 49ers. It seemed there was a slight disconnect between Lance and head coach Kyle Shanahan early on.

The San Francisco 49ers were in a must-win situation. A loss to the Houston Texans would make a postseason berth much more difficult. And though the first half didn't exactly give fans a lot of confidence, the 49ers came back strong in the second half to win the game, 23-7. The team started off shaky, and the quarterback looked shaky for a while, but the 49ers (and that rookie quarterback) made enough plays in the end. Here are my 14 shaky observations from the 49ers win on Sunday: In case you hadn't heard, rookie quarterback Trey Lance made his second career start. He recorded his very first win as a starting quarterback. Lance looked like a rookie making only his second start. He looked lost at times, and made some poor decisions. But that's
