Scouting 49ers scouts recap: College games the team attended Weeks 1-14

New, comments

Niners Nation's Greg Valerio recaps and highlights the 2016 NFL draft-eligible prospects from college football games 49ers' scouts attended during Weeks 1-14.

Recap time! We are continuing our weekly series, Scouting 49ers' Scouts, with a recap of some of the draft-eligible players from the games 49ers' scouts were credentialed during Weeks 1-14. The Internet, and Twitter in particular, provide some insight into where NFL teams are sending scouts for college football games. We will likely never know the full list of games, but it does give us some insight.

The folks at NFL.com's College Football 24/7 are the source for the credentialed information; therefore, a special thanks goes out to them, as well as the various college and NFL beat writers for providing the weekly credentialed 49ers scout's locations.

Below is an alphabetic listing of the college football programs 49ers' scouts visited, along with the game week(s) the scouts were credentialed to attend (looks like Ohio State and Stanford were the recipients of the most visits at 5 games a piece). Moreover, each school displays a few highlighted draft-eligible prospects, their position, and my current round projection.
