NFL rumors: 49ers hosted Baylor cornerback on pre-draft visit originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com
Baylor cornerback Derrek Thomas has reportedly taken a visit to Santa Clara to meet with the 49ers.
Thomas (6-foot-3, 189 pounds) ran 4.44 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. He is an exceptional athlete, with a 39.5-inch vertical leap and a 131-inch mark in the broad jump. But he lacks significant strength, bench-pressing 225 pounds just eight times.
Thomas has also visited the Dallas Cowboys, met with the Minnesota Vikings and had personal workouts with the Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks and Miami Dolphins, reported Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
Thomas transferred from Temple, where he played from 2014 to 2018. He was converted from wide receiver to cornerback in 2016, as a redshirt sophomore. He started 11 games during his senior year at Baylor and recorded one interception and seven pass breakups.
Thomas could be a late-round draft pick or available to sign as an undrafted free agent.
