According to Damond Talbot of NFL Draft Diamonds, the San Francisco 49ers are scheduled to visit the draft with Rutgers cornerback Blessuan Austin.

The 49ers previously met with Austin on Rutgers Pro Day in March. The Cornerback's 2018 season ended early after he had undergone a second surgery to repair an ACL originally injured in the 2017 season.

In the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-1 and 198-pound Austin had 15 reps in bench press. Other measurable values ​​for Austin include an arm length of 32 1/2 inches and hands measuring 10 inches.

"Last year, Austin was considered the best cornerback in the 2019 NFL Draft," writes Talbot. "He hopes to live up to that promise, but he only needs a team to give him a chance."

Austin reportedly drove a 40-yard strike of 4.67 seconds on his Pro day, jumped 35.5 inches into the upright, and jumped 10 feet-3 in the long jump. predicts Austin as the sixth draft election.

Lance Zierlein of wrote about Austin in his scouting report:

"High cornerback with good length, good talent and short range to be within striking distance of the ball production, Austins is a bit inconsistent reflecting the release from the press, and the upper body may be lacking to redirect larger cornerbacks in the league While teams can figure out which coverage is best for their talent, their design value may be directly linked to the durability concerns that have already affected my own rating. "

Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst wrote about Austin in his scouting report:

"Austin was ranked by Scouts as one of the top three seniors in the nation's cornerstone before the season, but he barely saw the field when he underwent a second knee surgery to repair a 2017 injury, and he has the size and skill However, to play on the next level he has to polish up his technique and, above all, show no negative effects of the injury that has kept him on edge for most of the last two years.
