Trent Baalke checked out prospects at Minnesota Pro Day

The Minnesota native was back in the Land of 10,000 Lakes to check out the Golden Gophers Pro Day.

The University of Minnesota conducted their 2016 Pro Day on Monday, and the San Francisco 49ers had a very prominent figure present. General manager Trent Baalke took in the event, getting a chance to check out a couple cornerbacks and a wide receiver.

The top two draft prospects on the Gophers roster are cornerbacks Eric Murray and Briean Boddy-Calhoun. Neither is particularly big, with Murray measuring in at 5'11, 199 pounds, and Boddy-Calhoun measuring in at 5'9, 193 pounds, although Murray gets positive marks for his toughness. CBS Sports is projecting Murray as a potential fourth round pick, and Boddy-Calhoun as a potential fourth or fifth round pick.

Additional talent on display included outside linebacker De'Vondre Campbell (CBS Sports projects him as a 5th round pick), and defensive end Theiren Cockrain, who is projected as a seventh round pick or UDFA. Matt Barrows also tweeted about wide receiver K.J. Maye as a potential slot type of wide receiver option.

Barrows also did make a point that Baalke is from Minnesota, so why not mix in a scouting trip with a visit home?
