The San Francisco 49ers drafted Will Redmond on Friday, six months removed from his ACL injury. Redmond injured his knee in a practice drill, and has been rehabbing ever since. He said he checked out well at the Combine re-check earlier this month. On Friday, Redmond said he expected to play this season, and Trent Baalke said he expects him to be ready for training camp. I think we'll all believe it when we see it, but fingers crossed for him.
In the meantime, Twitter user Emerson Senden sent along this video Redmond himself tweeted back in March. It shows him on a treadmill running at a crazy fast pace. It doesn't tell us much about the state of his knee now, but it's more than just a light jog, which is nice.
The 49ers have their rookie minicamp next week, and then OTAs and mandatory minicamp over the next month. Then players part ways until training camp. On day one of training camp, the 49ers will have to decide whether or not to place Redmond on the NFI list. That's when we'll have a better idea of where things stand.
