49ers make Toledo CB Samuel Womack a 5th-round draft pick

Apr 30, 2022 at 12:16 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers selected Toledo cornerback Samuel Womack with the 29th pick (No. 172 overall) in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Womack registered 33 tackles, one tackle for a loss, 15 passes defensed, and two interceptions through 13 game appearances as a senior in 2021, per Sports Reference. He recorded 126 tackles, 4.5 tackles for a loss, 0.5 sacks, 39 passes defensed, five interceptions, and a forced fumble through his five collegiate seasons.

Womack is from Detroit, MI. He earned a pre-draft grade of 5.69 from NFL.com, which equates to a "chance to make a roster or practice squad," per the site's 8-point grading scale.

NFL.com projected Womack to be a seventh-round pick or priority free agent signing.

Below is the NFL.com draft profile bio on Womack:

Womack walked onto the Golden Rockets in 2017 after earning first-team All-Michigan and All-Detroit honors at East English Village Prep. He played in seven games as a true freshman (four tackles, one interception, one pass breakup) and then contributed in all 13 games with one start in 2018 (12 tackles, 1.5 for loss, one pass breakup). Womack tied for second in the FBS with 15 pass breakups (also 59 tackles, two interceptions) in 2019, starting all 12 games. He led the MAC with eight pass breakups in 2020 (20 tackles, 1.5 for loss). Womack was a first-team All-MAC selection in 2021, tying for second in the FBS with 16 pass breakups while also making 33 tackles and intercepting two passes in 13 games with 12 starts. -- by Chad Reuter

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

Former walk-on who has developed into a ball-hawking slot defender. Womack has eye-popping speed and quickness with above-average ball production as a three-year starter. He's a natural at searching for clues and utilizing quality pathways to play the throw. Inconsistent technique and a lack of poise and positioning downfield are areas of concern that might not be easily correctable with coaching. Womack is not strong against the run, but he's sticky from press and instinctive from zone, which gives him a chance to compete for a roster spot.

Bleacher Report: 49ers probably regret not extending Deebo Samuel earlier

By David Bonilla
Jun 20

Bleacher Report's Kristopher Knox recently listed one offseason regret for each NFL team (h/t Niners Noise). That regret for the Kansas City Chiefs was letting Charvarius Ward depart. In March, the cornerback signed a three-year, $40.5 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers, forcing the Chiefs to use a first-round pick on Trent McDuffie. What about the regret for the 49ers, though? Is it the complicated situation with Jimmy Garoppolo, the veteran quarterback they would love to trade but can't? Is it not directly shooting



George Kittle wishes the 49ers didn't delay Deebo Samuel extension

Earlier this week, Bleacher Report listed what it believes is the one offseason regret for each NFL team. For the San Francisco 49ers, it was the team not locking wide receiver Deebo Samuel to a contract extension earlier—before the receiver market exploded earlier in the offseason and Samuel requested to be traded. One 49ers star wishes his team had taken care of Samuel earlier, avoiding the offseason drama altogether. Samuel reported to the team's mandatory minicamp earlier this month but didn't participate in the on-field work. "Hindsight is 20-20, right?" tight end George Kittle said this week on the



49ers' Deebo Samuel, George Kittle among PFF's top offensive duos

The San Francisco 49ers would probably love to see Brandon Aiyuk emerge as one of the top receivers in the NFL. That would make an Aiyuk-Deebo Samuel duo a headache for opposing defenses. Until then, the 49ers have two impressive offensive weapons in Samuel and tight end George Kittle. That's good news for second-year quarterback Trey Lance, who is expected to be the team's Week 1 starter after starting only two games as a rookie. The Samuel-Kittle pairing ranks among Pro Football Focus' top five offensive duos heading into the 2022 season. Kambui Bomani explains that both controlling the middle of the field at an elite level landed them within the



Fowler: 49ers' Deebo Samuel hasn't rescinded trade request

By David Bonilla

Deebo Samuel attended the San Francisco 49ers' mandatory minicamp earlier this month but did not participate in the practices. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan continued to share their optimism that the 49ers will sign Samuel to a contract extension despite the wide receiver requesting a trade earlier in the offseason. Samuel's willingness to report to the mandatory minicamp gave the impression that there is hope that the rift between player and team can be resolved and that a contract extension might come before training camp. However, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that nothing has changed regarding Samuel's stance. "I'm told status quo is really when he reported to minicamp; that's the last piece of news that we have here," Fowler said
