The San Francisco 49ers have found some more depth in the secondary, selecting Southern Mississippi safety Tarvarius Moore with pick No. 95 overall in the third round.
This is a curious addition for the 49ers. They signed Jaquiski Tartt to a two-year extension Friday morning, locking him down through 2020. Seventh round pick Adrian Colbert emerged as the team’s starting free safety this past year, but clearly they are prepared to bring in serious competition.
Moore ran a 4.32 40 at his Pro Day, and while those times are usually questionable, he is clearly a speed demon. And at 6’2, 190 pounds, there’s a lot to like in Moore. It sounds like he might be able to play corner, but there is the safety versatility as well. The addition makes some sense in the same line as the Fred Warner selection. You want versatility, and he and Warner bring some serious size/speed combinations.
How do you grade the 49ers addition of Tarvarius Moore?
