RELATED 5 things to know about 49ers 6th-round pick OL Jarrett Kingston

Lance Zierlein's NFL.com scouting report:
Offensive lineman who has the grit, play strength and know-how to play guard, but his size and length could prevent it. Kingston has been well-trained in pass protection, with a steady posture and quick hand strikes, but he could have issues when he's on an island and forced to defend both gaps against an athletic rusher. He's capable of making zone-scheme blocks and does an admirable job of sustaining run blocks for as long as possible. While he never played the position in a collegiate game, Kingston's future in the NFL might rest on his ability to prove he can snap and move to center.

Pre-Draft Grade:
Kingston earned a pre-draft grade of 5.69 from NFL.com, which equates to a "candidate for the bottom of a roster or practice squad player," per the site's 8-point grading scale.

Projection:
NFL.com projected Kingston to be a priority free agent.

NFL Scouting Combine:
At the NFL Scouting Combine, Kingston posted a 40-yard dash time of 5.02 seconds, a vertical jump of 31.5 inches, a broad jump of 9 feet, 3 inches, a 7.53-second three-cone drill time, 32 reps on the bench press, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.47 seconds.

Measurements:
Kingston is 6' 4 1/4" and 306 pounds. Additionally, he boasts an arm length of 32 1/8 inches and hands measuring 9 3/4 inches.

Hometown:
Anderson, CA

Dane Brugler's draft profile at The Athletic:
Kingston fills out his jersey well, although his lack of length shows up at contact, and he struggles to buckle down against long-armed power. He needs to make tweaks to his technique to fully unlock his core strength and twitch, but he has good eyes and processes quickly. Overall, Kingston has athletic tools to be a project for an NFL offensive line coach (maybe at center), but his undisciplined tendencies and shorter arms are potential roadblocks.
