The San Francisco 49ers are continuing their work on offensive line prospects with a private workout on Wednesday. NFL reporter Aaron Wilson tweeted that the team is conducting a workout with New Hampshire offensive tackle Andrew Lauderdale.
Lauderdale was not invited to the Combine, but had a Pro Day performance on March 15. He measured in at 6’6, 296 pounds, and ran a 4.9 40-yard dash (with a 1.89 10-yard split), which would have been the second fastest time at the Combine.
Lauderdale played tight end in high school, but converted to offensive line after two years at New Hampshire. As a redshirt sophomore in 2014, he appeared in all 14 games. In 2015, he played in and started nine games at right tackle. This past year, he was named third team all-conference (CAA).
He recognizes that he is likely not going to be drafted, saying that it is more realistic to expect to sign as an undrafted free agent. In the meantime, he told the Concord Monitor that he is continuing to eat as he works on adding weight to his frame. Moving to an NFL nutrition and strength and conditioning program will certainly help with that.
