The San Francisco 49ers met with defensive tackle Chris Slayton during Syracuse's pro day on Monday and even ran him through some defensive line drills, according to Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst.

"Defensive tackle Chris Slayton, who was a star during practices for the Shrine Game, sat on most of his combine numbers but did time 4.71 seconds in the short-shuttle and 7.34 seconds in the three-cone, the latter being a terrific mark," writes Pauline.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-4 and 307-pound Slayton had a 40-time of 5.13 seconds, a vertical jump of 29 inches, a broad jump of 101 inches, 28 reps in the bench press, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.73 seconds. Other measurables for Slayton include an arm length of 33 1/2 inches and hands that measure 10 5/8 inches.

Slayton registered 104 combined tackles with 30.5 for a loss and 7.5 sacks during four seasons at Syracuse.

Lance Zierlein of wrote the following about Slayton within his scouting report:

"Picturesque 3-technique with desired frame and initial quickness to make a roster, but an alarming lack of production relative to his traits. Slayton's tape shows a player who doesn't rev the motor hot enough to finish what he starts which has to change on the next level. If he learns to convert his early advantages into sustains and then finishes, he could become a much better player than where I currently have him graded."
