According to Justin Melo of The Draft Network, the San Francisco 49ers recently met with California safety Daniel Scott in a virtual meeting. The 2023 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday. However, the 49ers' first selection doesn't come until the end of the third round, at overall pick No. 99. projects Scott to be a sixth-round draft pick.

San Francisco could be in the market for a safety. Talanoa Hufanga and Tashaun Gipson are slated as starters. However, the team lost Jimmie Ward and Tarvarius Moore, both with safety experience, to free agency. The 49ers also added free-agent safety Myles Hartsfield.

Scott registered 85 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss, four passes defensed, three interceptions, and two forced fumbles through 12 game appearances as a senior in 2022, per Sports Reference. He recorded 207 tackles, seven tackles for a loss, a sack, six passes defensed, seven interceptions, a touchdown, and three forced fumbles through his five collegiate seasons.

"A team captain with size, tools and six seasons of collegiate experience, Scott will turn 25 during the 2023 season," Lance Zierlein wrote within the player's scouting report. "His age could hurt his chances with some teams, but his athleticism and four-phase special teams background will help him with others. He's more confident and capable as a field-reading center fielder than he is sifting through bunch formations and matching in man coverage. He was a teammate to four Cal defensive backs who were drafted in recent years, and he could be next up thanks to his football character and special teams talent."

Scott is from Pasadena, CA. He earned a pre-draft grade of 5.87 from, which equates to an "average backup or special-teams player," per the site's 8-point grading scale.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6' 0 7/8" and 208-pound Scott had a 40-time of 4.45 seconds, a vertical jump of 39.5 inches, a broad jump of 128 inches, a 6.75-second three-cone drill time, 22 reps in the bench press, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.17 seconds. His other measurables include an arm length of 30 1/4 inches and hands measuring 10 inches.

The San Francisco 49ers cruised to a 30-23 win on Sunday, overcoming a tight first half to generate a double-digit lead until the last play of the game, improving to 2-0 on the season. Now, the 49ers are getting ready to host their season opener, and it comes in primetime, as San Francisco will play the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football at Levi's Stadium this week.

However, they may be without star running back Saquon Barkley, who suffered an ankle sprain in Week 2, potentially putting an even bigger onus on quarterback Daniel Jones against the

The San Francisco 49ers have sported an excellent defense over the past few seasons, despite going from defensive coordinator Robert Saleh to DeMeco Ryans and now Steve Wilks, utilizing a similar scheme and consistently developing talent on that side of the ball. However, there has been one area, regardless of coordinator and talent, that the 49ers have struggled against defensively: containing dual-threat quarterbacks. That's the challenge they face in Week 3, as the 49ers are hosting the New York Giants and quarterback Daniel Jones in the home opener. The Giants have seen a tumultuous start to the season with a blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1, and a thrilling comeback victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2. Can the 49ers change

It was a night that saw wide receiver Deebo Samuel declare himself as officially out of "awful" mode, running back Christian McCaffrey reach milestones, wide receiver Ronnie Bell create some lasting memories, and -- of all things -- Andrew Luck making a return to an NFL field (in full Civil War costume) to take part in a game of trivia. Let's recap all that and more in this version of 49ers Notebook. Not awful anymore Back in June, Deebo Samuel caught some attention with his honest description of his 2022 performance
