Round 6, Pick 10: 49ers select Vanderbilt OT Justin Skule

Apr 27, 2019 at 12:43 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers selected Vanderbilt OT Justin Skule with the pick (No. 183 overall) in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Skule started all 25 games for the Commodores over the last two seasons. He has experience playing both left and right tackle and will compete for a role as the team's swing tackle.

NFL.com projected Skule to be an undrafted free agent. The site wrote the following about Skule within its scouting report:

"Top-heavy, high-cut swing tackle prospect who plays with a lack of bend and possesses average physical traits, but finds ways to get guys blocked using technique and football intelligence. The step up on competition may be too much for Skule in pass protection, but he may have enough agility to warrant an extended look as a player who can swing between guard and tackle either at the back-end of a roster or on a practice squad."

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

"Skule has next-level size and a great feel for blocking and gets the most from his ability. He's a versatile lineman who can be used at the next level as a swing tackle."

Ward might be the most underrated player on a defense boasting stars Nick Bosa and Fred Warner. The 49ers tight end knows how valuable the veteran safety is for the team, though. "I said [in a previous interview] Jimmie Ward might be one of the most underrated players in the NFL," Kittle said on the Papa & Lund show. "... When it's man coverage, you don't want Jimmie Ward on you because he's quick, he's physical, and he's really, really fast. He's got great hands, and he knows how to hold without getting holding calls. He's very good at that. "I'm very blessed to be able to go against
