2014 NFL Draft prospect visits: Towson RB Terrance West to meet with 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers are reportedly bringing in draft prospect Terrance West for a visit. We break down what it means, and post some scouting reports about West.

Tuesday afternoon, friend of the site Turron Davenport reported that agent Marc Lillibridge said his client, Towson running back Terrance West, will conduct a visit with the San Francisco 49ers. This news came the same day Central Florida running back Storm Johnson tweeted out a picture from his visit with the 49ers.

West is coming from a division below D-1, playing for a solid FCS squad in Towson. West was a finalist for the Walter Payton Award, which goes to the top FCS player. In 2013, he led FCS with a ridiculous 2,509 rushing yards. I realize FCS is a step below FBS, but that's just insane.

In Poldarn's consensus big board, West is ranked No. 123 overall, and ninth among running backs. CBS Sports and are projecting him as a potential third or fourth round pick. If that is the case, I'm not sure I see him ending up with the 49ers. I'm doubling down on the idea that the 49ers will not really be adding running back depth too early in the draft. I suppose they might grab a sixth or seventh round pick and/or an undrafted free agent, but a day 2 or early day 3 pick? I'm still not sold on that idea.

Here's a quick rundown of some of West's pertinent measurements and performances from the Combine:

Height: 5'9" (and 7/10)
Weight: 225 lbs
Arm length:
40-time: 4.54
Bench Press: 16
Vertical: 31"
Broad: 10'00"
