The San Francisco 49ers will undoubtedly be looking to solidify the interior of their offensive line this offseason. One option could be the draft, and the team was scheduled to host Washburn guard Kyle Hinton for one of its 30 pre-draft visits, according to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network.

That was, of course, before the 49ers closed down their facilities over concerns surrounding COVID-19 (novel coronavirus). Then, on Friday, the NFL announced that all pre-draft visits across the league would be canceled.

There has been no formal announcement of video conference calls or any other method taking the place of pre-draft visits. Although, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network suggested on Friday morning that it was a possibility.

Pauline wrote the following about Hinton:

Familiarize yourself with the name Kyle Hinton, a guard from Washburn, who stole the show at the Kansas State pro day. Entering the season, Hinton was graded as a street free agent. But after his pro day workout, there's now talk he will land in day three of the 2020 NFL Draft. Hinton measured a shade over 6-foot-2 and weighed in at 296 pounds. He completed 34 reps on the bench and touched 34.5 inches in the vertical jump. Hinton then scorched a pair of 40-yard dashes, timing 4.86 seconds on his first attempt and as low as 4.70 seconds on his second run. Some teams discounted his second run as they felt Hinton quick-started the attempt, though others are reporting the time. Even adding a tenth of a second brings the mark to a quick 4.80 seconds. The San Francisco 49ers and Las Vegas Raiders had scheduled Hinton for an official 30 visit, but that has since been canceled. Teams are comparing Hinton to 6-time Pro Bowler Brian Waters, who spent 13 years in the NFL.

Hinton played four years for the Ichabods, starting his final 34 games with the program and making 40 appearances along the offensive line. He is a four-time all-MIAA selection, earned all-region honors in 2018 and 2019, and is a three-time All-American selection.

Hinton also ran track and field.
