OL Colton McKivitz discusses being drafted by 49ers, isn’t sure if he will play tackle or guard

Apr 25, 2020 at 12:19 PM--


Former West Virginia tackle Colton McKivitz spoke with reporters via a video conference call shortly after being drafted in the fifth round by the San Francisco 49ers. Here is everything he had to say.

Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff.

I know that you're watching alone in Arizona. Were you able to FaceTime with your parents and did your mom have her draft board ready to go?

"Oh yeah. Yeah, she had it and I know she was getting a little nervous and then I was able to do some scrambling around when I got the Zoom meeting from the coaching staff and get them on the line as well. So, we're pretty excited for what's to come."

I'm just wondering, your draft analysis says that some teams were looking at you as a tackle and some as a guard. Just wondering if you knew what the 49ers were eyeing as?

"I had no idea actually. I didn't really have a whole lot of contact with them after the Combine and leading up to this. So, it was a pretty big surprise to get a call from them actually."

Do you have experience playing at guard?

"I played one game at guard in 2018 and then at the Senior Bowl I played at guard."

Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. Why did CB Brian Allen get the start and more to the point is why did it take so long to pull him from the game after four series? "Just because of how down we were going into the game. We got him off of practice squad this week because of the injuries we had. [CB Ken] Webster was his backup. [CB] Ahkello [Witherspoon], he tried to go this week, but he was too tight to go throughout practice all week, but because of our low numbers, we still dressed him for emergency.
