49ers pre-draft visits tracker 2014: A final rundown of what we can find

A rundown of the 49ers various pre-2014 NFL draft visits and rumored interest. This is likely not a complete list, but it gives fans an idea of the team's interests.

Jason O. Watson - USA TODAY Sports

In the weeks leading up to the NFL Draft, teams are allowed up to 30 visits from out-of-town prospects. Each team can bring in additional prospects that are local, but they are allowed a maximum of 30 official out-of-town visits.

Some teams will announce the players in town for visits (Buffalo Bills), but unsurprisingly, the 49ers are not such a team. Fortunately people enjoy talking about this kind of stuff, so we hear about different visits through anonymous sources and player tweets.

With that in mind, much like last year, I figured I'd put together a pre-draft tracker for your viewing pleasure. It includes visits to Santa Clara, and various other bits of 49ers connections to draft prospects. The 49ers attended a lot of Pro Days so I'm not including school workouts they attended unless there is a specific reference to a meeting. I've included their attendance at Dominique Easley's workout (separate from main Florida Pro Day), and will look for more of those. One exception on the Pro Day exclusion is when Jim Harbaugh and/or QB coach Geep Chryst was in attendance where a "notable" QB was working out.

I've posted each instance I see of some mention of a player, and then link to any NN article about it, as well as the underlying source for that article. If you see any I'm missing, let me know and I'll add them in.
