49ers will host Boise State DE Kamalei Correa

Apr 8, 2016 at 8:45 PM--


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.

Jimmy Garoppolo is better than Carson Wentz right now, says ESPN host

By David Bonilla

Jimmy Garoppolo could become a top-10 NFL quarterback. That's what Max Kellerman of ESPN's First Take believes. To do so, he'll still need to prove himself in the playoffs. Garoppolo has shown himself to be a clutch passer during the regular season. His playoff-game performances earlier this year, however, have fueled the criticism from his doubters. The Philadelphia Eagles have a franchise quarterback by the name of Carson Wentz, a 27-year-old signal-caller who many believe to be a rising star in the league. If Kellerman were to rank NFL quarterbacks right now, he might have to put Garoppolo ahead of Wentz. That caused a bit of a heated

Trent Williams athletic enough to play 3-technique, says 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan

By David Bonilla

There is no doubt that Trent Williams is among the most athletic offensive linemen in the NFL. The tackle joined the San Francisco 49ers via a trade in April and will replace another athletic offensive lineman in recently retired Joe Staley. It's not often that a team can lose a player like Staley and gain one like Williams. The 49ers offensive line shouldn't miss a beat during the transition, and some might argue that it may have improved with the switch. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was in Washington when the team drafted Williams and is excited to bring him to the Bay Area. Shanahan knows a good NFL tackle when he sees one. "I've been so fortunate, just in the places I've been, to be with some of the best tackles in the league," Shanahan told Greg
