Watch 49ers rookie Kentavius Street squatting 700 pounds before his injury

Apr 28, 2018 at 12:01 PM--

Shortly after the San Francisco 49ers selected defensive end Kentavius Street out of N.C. State, a video started circulating among the Niner Faithful. It showed Street squatting 700 pounds. Of course, that was before the ACL injury he suffered during a private workout with the New York Giants just a few weeks ago.

Street was asked about the video during a conference call following his selection.

"It was definitely great," he said. "Honestly, I couldn't have done it without the guys around me. If you watch the video, you see how crazy they were going for me. I was riding that momentum, and I just had to go and do it. I couldn't go and fail with all of them hyped up."

You can watch the video below.

Street is unlikely to see any playing time during his rookie season and will likely spend most of the year rehabbing.

"Rehab's going great," he continued. "I'm unsure of the timeline and everything, but I'm excited to get to San Francisco and continue my rehab just so I can get back out on the field as soon as possible."

The injury doesn't have Street down. After all, he has made it to the NFL, and he sees it as just another challenge to overcome.

"I just knew it was another challenge ahead of me, and I knew I was going to be able to overcome it," Street said. "I've been blessed throughout my whole career to not really be spanned with injuries and stuff, and I think this is another challenge that God has put in front of me and I'm going to overcome it."

What will Street bring to the 49ers once he is healthy and can get back on the football field?

"As far as an athlete, I feel like I'm a well-balanced guy," he answered. "I feel like I'm really stout against the run, violent hands, low pad level. And then against the pass I just use my quickness, instincts, you know, try to time the snap, stuff like that. And a lot of the things are just studying the offensive linemen that I play. I feel like that plays a very vital role in how I play, just knowing my opponent and the rest just comes natural when I go out there on game day."

5 49ers Who Could Be Traded Before the 2020 Regular Season

For the first time since the Jim Harbaugh era, the 49ers roster is loaded with talent. Come September 5th, all NFL teams will have to reduce their roster sizes from 90 to 53 players. The 49ers will inevitably have to move on from an abundance of quality players, many of whom are more than capable of making an impact on an NFL roster. With that being said, low-end teams will be flocking to the waiver wire to see which players weren't quite good enough to make this stacked San Francisco team. The 49ers would be wise to find trade partners for these five players, as opposed to cutting them outright: #1) C.J. Beathard - Quarterback: C.J. Beathard is not a quarterback who has a lot of value. If Beathard were to be traded, I'd expect
