49ers make LSU RB Tyrion Davis-Price a 3rd-round draft pick

Apr 29, 2022 at 7:55 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers selected LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price with the 29th pick (No. 93 overall) in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Davis-Price was among the many players the 49ers hosted on a pre-draft visit.

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. At his school Pro Day, he had a 40-time of 4.53 seconds, a vertical jump of 33.80 inches, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.40 seconds.

NFL.com projected Davis-Price to be a fourth- or fifth-round draft pick.

Below is the NFL.com draft profile bio on Davis-Price:

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. -- by Chad Reuter

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 injury updates: RB Ty Davis-Price, TE Tyler Kroft will miss 'a few weeks,' says Shanahan

By David Bonilla
Sep 19

Quarterback Trey Lance wasn't the only San Francisco 49ers player who suffered an injury during the team's 27-7 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on a conference call with reporters this afternoon and provided injury updates, as he typically does on the day after a game. "[Tight end] Tyler Kroft had an MCL sprain," Shanahan said. "He'll be out a few weeks. [Rookie running back] Ty Davis-Price had a high-ankle sprain. He'll miss a few weeks also." Shanahan added that they just learned about the injury to Davis-Price. The team will expect their other rookie running back, Jordan Mason, to step up in Davis-Price's absence. "He needs to [step up] now," Shanahan said of Mason. "Last week was his first week getting a lot



Kyle Shanahan hoping 49ers fans make an impact vs. Seahawks

The San Francisco 49ers will host the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium on Sunday. The division matchup is the home opener for Kyle Shanahan and his team, and the head coach is looking forward to the fans making an impact after a disappointing Week 1 road outing against the Chicago Bears. "[There's definitely a different energy] when you are at home," Shanahan said after Friday's practice, the last of the week before Sunday's game. "I think the advantage on the road, I always talk to our players, there's an advantage with concentration and stuff on the road. When you get on a plane, usually right now, you're there, you don't have family in town, things like that. So those are the only reasons you like being on the road." Of course, there are typically more



49ers QB Trey Lance could make full recovery within 10 to 12 weeks, says surgeon

Trey Lance will likely head to injured reserve soon. On Monday, the quarterback underwent what most assumed to be season-ending surgery to repair the damage suffered when he broke his ankle against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. On a conference call with reporters this week, head coach Kyle Shanahan sounded pretty confident that Lance would be ready to go for Week 1 of the 2023 season. One expert isn't so sure the injury is season-ending, though. Foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Kenneth Jung, a consultant to the Los Angeles Rams, believes Lance could be fully healed within 10 to 12 weeks. Assuming the lengthier estimated recovery time, that might make him available after Week 14. However, the shorter estimate could mean Lance is healthy after Week

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 3 contest against the Denver Broncos on Sunday at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado. George Kittle suffered a groin injury on September 5. After missing Weeks 1 and 2, he looks on track to make his 2022 season debut. The tight end was a limited participant in practice for the second time this week and could be suited up in Denver this weekend. After practice, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was asked if it felt like old times having Kittle back at practice. "It's getting there," he responded. Defensive lineman Arik Armstead sustained a foot injury against Seattle. He missed his second consecutive practice. Offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill continues to miss
