49ers work out Mississippi State CB Taveze Calhoun

Apr 11, 2016 at 7:06 PM--


Mississippi State CB Taveze Calhoun has had or will have workouts with the San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

He also had or will have visits with the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins. It wasn't clear if the workouts and visits had happened already.


During the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot and 192-pound Calhoun had a 40-time of 4.58 seconds and a vertical jump of 33.5 inches.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media had the following to say in his draft profile:

High-character leader whose overall intelligence translates into positive plays on the field. Calhoun doesn't have good deep speed but finds ways to cover up his speed deficiency while still making plays on the throws underneath. A failure to run well would be a huge concern because he lacks the physicality as a tackler to be a full­-time zone corner. Late Day 3 draft pick or camp invite might be his door into the NFL.

He remains focused on preparing his players for an unprecedented and unpredictable 2020 season, set to be played amid a pandemic. Shanahan's focus is on football and not contract negotiations. That's the job of Lynch and his staff. Still, Shanahan knows how important Kittle is to the 49ers. He's a special player who the coach considers to be the best

Bill Barnwell of ESPN went team-by-team to project potential future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees for each. How do you do that for a team like the New York Jets? Well, they do have running back Frank Gore on the roster. Barnwell lists him as "likely" to be a future inductee. What about the talent-depleted Miami Dolphins? Yeah, that one is harder. Barnwell couldn't come up with anyone who had more than a 10 percent chance to one day earn Hall of Fame honors. For the San Francisco 49ers, the decision was pretty easy. The ESPN writer lists veteran cornerback Richard Sherman as "likely" to make the Hall of Fame, which means he has between a
