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.

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 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
