The San Francisco 49ers private workouts for offensive linemen continue, with the team recently looking at San Diego State offensive lineman Darrell Greene. NFL reporter Aaron Wilson tweeted that Greene has visited with the Vikings and Chargers, and worked out with the 49ers, Texans, Browns, and Eagles.
The 49ers have hosted or will host visits or have workouts with Joe Dahl, Rees Odhiambo, Brandon Shell, and Fahn Cooper. They met with Ronnie Stanley at the NFL Combine, but we really have not heard them connected with any of the truly big names in offensive line talent.
Greene himself is projected as a guard who won't go until late on day three. I like reading this in the NFL.com overview:
Stocky, prototypical right guard with the power to unclog running lanes and help a rushing attack looking to dominate with the physical over the finesse. Greene lacks the length NFL teams usually look for but his tremendous power could be an offset.
He dealt with some marijuana issues, sitting six games on a drug suspension. I'm guess that is something the team has vetted just a little bit. The team could use more competition at guard. Greene seems like the kind of late round pick that could surprise folks and end up in the starting lineup before too long.
