Defensive back Kent London to take part in 49ers local pro day

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers will have some under-the-radar prospects on hand for their local Pro Day. Here's a defensive back to consider.

The San Francisco 49ers will host their local Pro Day on Wednesday, and that means a variety of under-the-radar prospects will get a chance to impress scouts and coaches. Prospects attending local universities, as well as people who went to high school in the Bay Area but attend college elsewhere are eligible to take part in the festivities. The local Pro Day will include some big names, but it is more for players that are likely to sign as UDFAs. In recent years, the 49ers have signed multiple UDFAs from their local Pro Day.

One out of state prospect taking part will be Southeastern Oklahoma State safety Kent London. A source confirmed he will be attending the 49ers and Raiders local Pro Days, and also has some workouts planned with other teams. London went to Milpitas High, which is why he is eligible for the Pro Days. He played quarterback in high school, then quarterback and defensive back initially in college, before becoming a full-time defensive back.

London did not have the grades coming out of high school to play FBS football, so he went to Foothill College in Los Altos. He was a junior college All American in 2012. He eventually transferred to Houston to play defensive back. He had a shoulder issue when he arrived in Houston that resulted in him missing 2013. Things did not work out with the coaching staff, and so he decided to transfer. He could not go FBS to FBS, so he went the Division II route.

London weighs around 205 right now, and in asking around, he was described as a big hitter. He had a foot injury in 2014 that cost him much of the season, and a hamstring injury early in 2015 cost him three games. In the remaining eight games he had 39 tackles, five interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and a pair of pass break-ups.

Here's some highlights.
