San Francisco 49ers Select CB Curtis Holcomb With Final Pick Of 2011 NFL Draft

And so the San Francisco 49ers 2011 NFL Draft is complete. With their final seventh round pick, the 49ers selected defensive back Curtis Holcomb out of Florida A&M. GO RATTLERS! Cornerback remained a position of need and the 49ers added another to go with Chris Culliver.

Unfortunately I really can't find anything on short notice on Holcomb, but I'll keep looking around. He did have three interceptions for the Rattlers last year, so that's certainly a plus. Well, it's better than zero interceptions. One of those interceptions came against Howard and two came against Hampton.

At this point, heading into the 2011 NFL season, the 49ers cornerbacks will consist of Nate Clements, Shawntae Spencer, Tarell Brown, Tramaine Brock, Will James, Chris Culliver, and Curtis Holcomb. I'm assuming Colin Jones sticks at safety, but I could be wrong. Either way, I'm not ready to pack it in, but that is not exactly awe-inspiring given some of the struggles we saw in 2010 in the secondary.
