On Wednesday, the last day that NFL teams can host players for pre-draft visits, the San Francisco 49ers hosted LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price, per Jordan Schultz.


Davis-Price carried the football 211 times for 1,003 yards and six rushing touchdowns, adding 10 receptions for 64 yards through 12 game appearances as a junior in 2021, per Sports Reference. He had 1,744 rushing yards on 379 attempts and 15 rushing touchdowns, adding 28 receptions for 185 yards through his three collegiate seasons.

Davis-Price is from Baton Rouge, LA. He earned a pre-draft grade of 6.16 from NFL.com, which equates to a "good backup with potential to become a starter," per the site's 8-point grading scale.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6' 0 3/8" and 211-pound Davis-Price had a 40-time of 4.48 seconds, a vertical jump of 30 inches, and a broad jump of 117 inches. His other measurables include an arm length of 30 3/4 inches and hands measuring 9 1/4 inches.

Davis-Price had a vertical jump of 35.50 inches and a broad jump of 106 inches at his personal Pro Day. He had a 40-time of 4.53 seconds at his school Pro Day, a vertical jump of 33.80 inches, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.40 seconds.

NFL.com analyst Chad Reuter wrote the following about Davis-Price in the player's draft profile:

Davis-Price stepped in to contribute as a true freshman for the 2019 national champion Tigers, scoring six touchdowns on the ground in 14 appearances (64-295-4.6; 10-74-7.4 receiving). The former top-10 running back recruit nationally from Baton Rouge's Southern Lab High School led LSU with 446 rushing yards and tied for the team lead with three rushing scores in 2020 (104 carries, 4.3 per; 8-47-5.9 receiving in nine games, four starts). Davis-Price again led the Tigers with 1,003 yards and six scores rushing (211 carries, 4.8 per) in 2021. He also contributed as a receiver (10-64-6.4) in 12 starts. He opted out of the team's bowl game to prepare for the NFL draft.

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com wrote the following within his scouting report:

Big, athletic back offering an enticing blend of size and explosiveness to go with an SEC pedigree. Davis-Price's early season tape was listless and lacking pro quality, but that changed over the second half of the year. He's an enigmatic back featuring urgency, indecisiveness, physicality and finesse on any given carry. He got much better as the season progressed and clearly finds a rhythm when given volume carries. Scouts say that staying motivated will be a major factor in future success. Davis-Price's athletic ability and hammerhead finishes will help him create yardage. He has the size and upside worthy of consideration in the middle rounds.

49ers Mock Draft 1.0: Pre-Combine Edition

By Wayne P. Brown

It's mock draft season, and the San Francisco 49ers have a few areas that must be addressed in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft. Below are my projections for the team's selections, utilizing Pro Football Focus' mock draft simulator. Round 1, Pick 31 Tyler Guyton - Right Tackle - Oklahoma Although Guyton is raw, he has good footwork and power to dominate in pass protection and run blocking. In 2023, Guyton gave up zero sacks and 12 total pressures. He can play both left and right tackle. Round 2, Pick 63 Christian Haynes - Right Guard- UCONN Haynes is a powerful guard who moves off the ball quickly. He's only allowed 48 pressures in five seasons with the Huskies. Eight of the pressures were sacks. Haynes would

Daniel Jeremiah has 49ers addressing O-line in latest mock draft

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers have some weak points along the offensive line. It's tough to dispute that. Three of the team's starters—Jake Brendel, Colton McKivitz, and Aaron Banks—received overall Pro Football Focus grades under 70.0. Clearly, this is an area that could use improvement during the offseason. NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah proposes just that in his latest mock draft, predicting the 49ers will select offensive lineman Graham Barton out of Duke with the No. 31 overall pick. "A left tackle at Duke, Barton would slide inside to guard and has the athleticism to do all that is required in Kyle Shanahan's

In his draft scenario, Jeremiah projects the 49ers selecting former Duke left tackle Graham Barton, envisioning a transition to guard in Kyle Shanahan's offensive scheme. However, some have questioned whether Barton warrants a first-round selection. On Thursday, Jeremiah addressed these concerns in a conference call with reporters, defending his choice of Barton within his mock
