Apr 30, 2016 at 3:35 PM--


With the 28th pick in the seventh round (249th overall), the San Francisco 49ers selected Western Kentucky CB Prince Charles Iworah.


NFL.com projected that Iworah would be selected in rounds 6 or 7 of the NFL Draft.

Analysis


Lance Zierlein of NFL Media had the following to say in his scouting report:

Iworah's tape is a little inconsistent at this time and his inability to mirror and match targets with consistency is troubling as a man-­cover cornerback. While I see the explosive athleticism, his actual cover skills need enough fine-­tuning that he may have to spend a year stashed on a practice squad.

DraftInsider.net had the following to say about Iworah in their scouting report:

Iworah is an athletic cornerback who needs to fine-tune his game but has the ability to line up in dime packages on Sunday.
