The San Francisco 49ers have met with and worked out a handful of offensive linemen, and we can add another to the list. ESPN’s Jenna Laine is reporting the team had a private workout on Wednesday with South Florida’s Kofi Amichia.
Amichia started 26 games at left tackle for the Bulls, but Laine is reporting the 49ers are looking at hime as a guard or center. He played guard in high school before converting to tackle in college. He was not at the NFL Combine, but at his Pro Day, he measured in at 6’3, 302 pounds. He had 32 reps on the bench press, which would have been good for fifth at the Combine.
CBS Sports projects him as a seventh round pick or priority free agent. When the draft comes to a close in three weeks, anybody eligible but not drafted automatically becomes a free agent. Teams will be hustling to sign the UDFAs, so they lay the groundwork for potential signings now.
There is no time to put priority free agents players through a workout when the draft ends, so they get as much intel as they can in advance. They’ll likely be in touch with some of these players as the draft comes to a close, but either way, they’ll be ready to get signings done as soon as the draft ends.
