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.

Sam Acho picks 49ers' Trey Lance as 2nd-year QB to make biggest jump in 2022

By David Bonilla

Last week, ESPN analyst Rob Ninkovich looked at the 2021 rookie quarterback class and stated he expects Trey Lance to make the "biggest jump" in Year 2. Another ESPN analyst, Sam Acho, agrees with that prediction. Why is Lance the best second-year quarterback, in Acho's opinion? It's because of the weapons around him. The 22-year-old quarterback will have wide receiver Deebo Samuel (assuming the offseason rift can be mended) and tight end George Kittle at his disposal. "Yes, there was a reason Zach Wilson was the second pick overall last year," Acho said. "There's a reason Trey Lance was third, right? Because he's that good as well." More critical for



Did the 49ers want Cam Taylor-Britt over Drake Jackson at pick no. 61?

The San Francisco 49ers streamed their annual State of the Franchise event on Wednesday, where owner Jed York, general manager John Lynch, head coach Kyle Shanahan, and receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Jauan Jennings were amongst the featured guests. Greg Papa, the longtime Bay Area radio announcer, hosted the event, and began the Shanahan-Lynch segment by asking about the draft, given the differences from prior years due to the lack of a first-round selection in 2022. Lynch believed that the strategy didn't significantly alter, as the 49ers continued with their holistic approach, although the team elected to make zero trades on draft day, which was a first since the Shanahan-Lynch era began. "We stayed pat because there were players there that we liked



PFF's 2020 re-draft has 49ers passing on Javon Kinlaw for cornerback help

Fans like to play "What If," wondering what things might be like had their favorite team opted for a different choice at a pivotal moment. Fans aren't the only ones, though. Take former San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, for instance. His missed interception of a Matthew Stafford pass intended for receiver Van Jefferson in the NFC title game might have sent the Niners back to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "That's a play I should make in my sleep, and I didn't make it," Tartt said after the game. "... I know that was a big play in the game, a big opportunity for me and for the team, and as a player, I just feel like I let my brothers down." Had Tartt made the play, maybe the 49ers win their sixth



CBS Sports labels 49ers' handling of QB Jimmy Garoppolo as most questionable offseason move

Earlier this week, CBS Sports compiled a list of every NFL team's most questionable offseason move, and pointed to the Jimmy Garoppolo saga for the San Francisco 49ers, which still remains unanswered as mandatory minicamp has concluded. While there were several potential choices, such as San Francisco's contract negotiations with Deebo Samuel that ultimately resulted in a trade request by the fourth-year receiver, CBS Sports's Jordan Dajani believed that the outcome of the Garoppolo situation was the most questionable move. "We could discuss something related to Deebo Samuel here, but it seems
