New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers preparations for 2015 include scouting talent at the college all star games. The team reportedly met with four players at the Senior Bowl this past week. We break down what it all might mean.

The Senior Bowl wrapped up over the weekend, but there are some loose ends to tie up. On Friday, Trevor Woods broke down some notable practice performances in the week leading up to the Senior Bowl. He followed that with a look at some notable performances from the game.

The week of the Senior Bowl provided the San Francisco 49ers with a chance to visit with players. The team sent scouts and other football operations employees to scout the game. Scouts and others took some time to meet players, and Walter Football has a running list of meetings. For the Senior Bowl, the 49ers reportedly met with:

Quandre Diggs, CB, Texas
Kurtis Drummond, S, Michigan State
Garrett Grayson, QB, Colorado State
Jeremy Langord, RB, Michigan State

These meetings are on top of some reported meetings at the East-West Shrine Game. According to Walter Football, those meetings included:

Ben Beckwith, G, Mississippi State
Devin Gardner, QB/WR, Michigan
Sean Hickey, OT, Syracuse
Taiwan Jones, ILB, Michigan State
Ryan Russell, DE, Purdue

Most know, but just to clarify, a meeting does not actually mean the team is taking a significant look at a player. A meeting can cover anything from a quick chat after practice, to a meeting for a potentially more formal interview process. A post-practice chat could simply be a matter of confirming contact information, or even basic bio information.

Walter Football did report that the 49ers had a meeting in a hotel room with CSU quarterback Garrett Grayson. It would seem like that would hold a little bit more meaning than just a quick post-practice chat. However, it is safe to say we will likely never really know for certain what happened in that meeting. The 49ers will hold numerous additional meetings, and they will bring in a variety of players for workouts. When that has wrapped up, we might only see the 49ers pick one or two players from that group. And of course, we likely don't know every single visit, so we're left with an incomplete picture. Nonetheless, it is part of a picture, which adds a little bit of context.
