According the Justin Melo of The Draft Network, the San Francisco 49ers hosted a dinner with Texas defensive tackle Keondre Coburn ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft later this month.

"Coburn is a powerful nose tackle that defeats single blocks with consistency," Melo wrote of the young defender. "Coburn utilizes core power and natural strength that handles double teams appropriately. Coburn should quickly earn a run-stuffing role at the next level."

Coburn registered 29 tackles, four tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles through 13 game appearances as a senior in 2022, per Sports Reference. He recorded 93 tackles, 15 tackles for a loss, 6.5 sacks, two passes defensed, and three forced fumbles during his last four collegiate seasons.

"I just enjoy making plays for my team," Coburn told Melo. "I love helping my team. I'm a team-first player. If I'm able to get on the field and make plays that help my team win ball games, that's what I'm all about. My goal is to help us get off the field and get the ball back for our offense."

Coburn is from Houston, TX. He earned a pre-draft grade of 6.19 from, 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' 1 5/8" and 332-pound Coburn had a 40-time of 5.22 seconds, a vertical jump of 27.5 inches, a broad jump of 101 inches, and 24 reps in the bench press. His other measurables include an arm length of 31 1/2 inches and hands measuring 9 1/8 inches.

The defensive lineman takes pride in his ability to stop the opposition's rushing attack.

Said Coburn: "I'm always excited to stop the run. It's something that I take pride in. My coaches trusted me with that responsibility. If you can't rush the passer, you can't get off the field as a defense. Well, it was my job to put the opposition in those third-and-obvious passing downs. If they can't run the ball, that makes them one-dimensional. Offenses want to run the ball first."

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

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
