According to Justin Melo of The Draft Network, the San Francisco 49ers are among the teams that have met virtually with Louisville cornerback Kei'Trel Clark ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft later this month. Clark has also met with the Washington Commanders, Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings, and Las Vegas Raiders.

"Lots of interest in an exciting inside-outside CB prospect," notes Melo.


Clark registered a career-high 51 tackles, four tackles for a loss, a sack, four passes defensed, an interception, and a touchdown through 12 game appearances as a senior in 2022, per Sports Reference. He recorded 167 tackles, 13.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks, 28 passes defensed, five interceptions, and a touchdown through his four collegiate seasons. In 2021, the defensive back hauled in a team-leading and career-high three interceptions for the Cardinals despite being limited to six starts in eight games due to a torn ACL.

The 49ers lost defensive backs Emmanuel Moseley (Lions), Jimmie Ward (Texans), and Tarvarius Moore (Packers) in free agency.

Clark is from Richmond, VA. He earned a pre-draft grade of 5.92 from NFL.com, which equates to an "average backup or special-teams player," per the site's 8-point grading scale.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 5' 10 1/4" and 181-pound Clark had a 40-time of 4.42 seconds, a vertical jump of 34.5 inches, a broad jump of 122 inches, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.21 seconds. His other measurables include an arm length of 29 5/8 inches and hands measuring 8 1/4 inches.

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

Clark is small but fast. He plays with twitchy feet and a competitive demeanor when challenging the throw. He's capable of stalking short and intermediate routes with a feel for the passing lane, but his lack of size and length shows up down the field. While the ball skills and athletic traits work in his favor, trouble with run support and big slot targets could be difficult obstacles to overcome in the NFL.

Dec 1

The San Francisco 49ers are still exploring their safety options due to injuries to Talanoa Hufanga and George Odum. Tayler Hawkins is on the practice squad, and the team has added veteran Erik Harris. General manager John Lynch admits that there aren't many outside options at this point in the season. The silver lining is the depth added through the draft, with Ji'Ayir Brown selected from Penn State in the third round. Brown made a notable debut against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, stepping in for Hufanga, and made his first start against the Seattle Seahawks last week. The rookie's impressive performance has not gone unnoticed, earning a 76.8 overall Pro Football Focus grade against the Buccaneers and a 73.9 grade on Thanksgiving night. The 49ers are optimistic

Brock Purdy is gearing up to lead his San Francisco 49ers against the Seattle Seahawks for the second time in three games. This time, the Niners will play host, with Sunday's NFC West clash taking place at Levi's Stadium. Purdy has faced Seattle more than any other opponent in his NFL career, creating a familiarity with the division rival.

"They got good players, some really good dudes that have a lot of experience and stuff, obviously with [LB] Bobby Wagner and then [DB Quandre] Diggs in the secondary, some boys that are playing corner that have got some experience now under their belts," Purdy told reporters after Thursday's

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan provided injury updates during his weekly interview on Bay Area radio station KNBR, shedding light on the statuses of some ailing players ahead of the team's Week 14 showdown against the Seattle Seahawks.

Maybe the San Francisco 49ers will be in the market to draft another wide receiver soon. Suppose the front office seeks the opinion of running back Christian McCaffrey. In that case, he will likely be vocal in his recommendation—a certain Rice wideout named Luke McCaffrey, who happens to be his younger brother. "I would love to play with him one day," the older McCaffrey told reporters in the 49ers' locker room after Thursday's practice. "That would be the coolest thing ever. So I'm excited for him and his journey, and he's only going to get better." Luke, listed at 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds, recorded 68 receptions for 963 yards and 12 touchdowns this season, averaging 14.2 yards per catch. "Yeah, I've watched every snap of every game," Christian
