Add Boise State DE Kamalei Correa to the growing list of draft prospects that the San Francisco 49ers will be hosting. The former Bronco will be visiting with the New Orleans Saints as well, with his visits beginning this weekend, per Tony Pauline of Draft Insider.


Correa was listed as 6-foot-3 and 243 pounds at the NFL Combine. He has an arm span of 31 5/8 inches and hands that measured in at 9 3/8 inches. He recorded a 4.69 second 40-time, 33-inch vertical jump, and a 108-inch broad jump. He could be used as an outside linebacker if drafted by San Francisco.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compared him to Frank Zombo, had the following to say about Correa:

Correa will likely transition into a full-time 3­-4 outside linebacker as a pro. While he doesn't have as much play strength as expected and is still raw as a pass rusher, NFL teams will be attracted by his quick-twitch athleticism and moldable traits as a pass rusher. The tape says Day 3 of the draft, but the upside could get him called earlier. He might require patience as there is still work to be done for Correa.

During his three years with Boise State, Correa had 107 career tackles, 19 sacks, two pass breakups and four forced fumbles. In 2014, he finished the season with 12 sacks and 19 tackles for loss.

The San Francisco 49ers hold defensive back Deommodore Lenoir in high regard.
