49ers held pre-draft meeting with Auburn safety Jordyn Peters

Apr 12, 2021 at 3:48 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are among several teams that have held virtual pre-draft interviews with Auburn safety Jordyn Peters, per Justin Melo of The Draft Network. The other teams include the Arizona Cardinals, New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, and Los Angeles Chargers.

"Peters blocked 5 kicks/punts in college," Melo notes. "Really good special teams player."


Peters recorded 42 tackles, a tackle for a loss, an interception, and four passes defensed through 10 games as a senior in 2020, per Sports Reference. He registered 101 tackles, seven tackles for a loss, two sacks, eight passes defensed, and a forced fumble in four seasons with the Tigers.

As Melo points out, in addition to his increased role in the secondary this past season, Peters has been a big part of Auburn's special teams unit.

"He's played a very significant role on our special teams since the day that he's gotten there, the day that I've gotten here," special teams coordinator Larry Porter told Al.com. "He's on every phase. He's involved in every phase. And we kind of see him as a staple within special teams. In every phase, you can feel his presence in some kind of way. We bring new guys in, we kind of use him as a model."

NFL teams are allowed to conduct up to five video calls per prospect leading to the draft, and each call can last up to one hour. There is no limit to how many phone conversations NFL teams can conduct with draft-eligible players.

The NFL Draft begins on April 29.

"We're prepared. We're ready": John Lynch shares numbers from 49ers' thorough pre-draft process

Much of the focus is on the San Francisco 49ers' first-round pick at No. 3 overall. That was the biggest topic of conversation during Monday's pre-draft press conference with general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan. However, the team also possesses eight other selections in later rounds. They aren't just trying to make the most informed decision with their top pick, but they are trying to hit on every pick, ensuring the team can remain competitive for years to come. Lynch shared some interesting numbers before taking questions from reporters. Obviously, this year's pre-draft process, like last year's, is different from the typical offseason due to the ongoing pandemic. Still, the 49ers have been very busy. Here are just a few of the numbers that



Trotter: 49ers traded up to evaluate Trey Lance, Justin Fields; Mac Jones was a 'safety net'

Jim Trotter took a look inside the San Francisco 49ers' month-long draft evaluation process that ended this week with the selection of Trey Lance of North Dakota State at No. 3 overall. Since March 26, when the Niners traded a haul of draft capital to the Miami Dolphins to move up, rampant speculation surrounded the team's target. It made for great ratings, I suppose. For a long time, Mac Jones of Alabama was seen as the most likely candidate to be headed to the Bay Area. Not necessarily by fans, but by the many analysts and media members with blue checkmarks by their names on Twitter. That left fans infuriated. Jones was not a popular option. Both Lance and Justin Fields of Ohio State were favored over the Alabama quarterback. In the end, it wasn't
