The San Francisco 49ers have 30 official pre-draft visits they can conduct before the end of the month, but they will not be using the visits on a few high profile possibilities. General manager John Lynch told the media on Wednesday that the team will not have visits with Stanford defensive end Solomon Thomas and running back Christian McCaffrey, or Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett.
Late last month, Garrett told the media following his Pro Day that the 49ers were one of the teams with whom he had a visit set up. I don’t know what changed, or if it was a miscommunication, but it is off the table. John Lynch was at the Pro Day, and at the time he said Garrett checked all the boxes.
Lynch said the 49ers felt they knew Thomas and McCaffrey pretty well, and will not be bringing them in, according to ESPN’s Nick Wagoner. Neither was on hand for the 49ers local Pro Day, which was primarily populated by players likely to be undrafted free agents.
Thomas has been connected to the 49ers at No. 2 regularly over the past month. McCaffrey was at one point viewed as a potential second round target, but has quickly seen his stock skyrocket to the point that some are saying he could go in the top ten of the first round. Things certainly can change with haste!
