Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that the 49ers hosted a number of draft prospects on Wednesday, including LSU RB Leonard Fournette, Iowa TE George Kittle, Michigan S Jabrill Peppers and Florida CB Teez Tabor.
- San Francisco also met with Connecticut S Obi Melifonwu on Tuesday, according to Barrows.
Peppers, 21, is one of the most dynamic players in this year’s draft class and played on both sides of the ball during his college career.
Earlier in the year, many felt that Peppers was likely to be a top-10 pick in the next draft. However, some are now questioning whether he’ll be able to be the same kind of player at the next level and if he would be better off playing either safety or linebacker.
Peppers has met with the Buccaneers, Ravens, Saints and Cardinals.
During his college career at Michigan, Peppers recorded 119 tackles, 18.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks, one interception and 11 pass defenses. On offense, Peppers rushed for 239 yards on 45 carries (4.5 YPC) to go along with 10 receptions for 82 yards receiving and five total touchdowns.
Leonard, 22, is arguably the No. 1 running back prospect in what’s considered by many to the deepest running back class in a number of years.
Fournette previously visited with the Panthers, Jaguars, Eagles and Saints.
During his college career at LSU, Fournette has rushed for 3,380 yards on 616 carries (6.2 YPC) to go along with 41 receptions for 526 yards receiving and 41 total touchdowns over the course of 32 games.
We have them both being selected in the First Round of our 2017 NFL Mock Draft.
