According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, cornerback Quenton Meeks visited the San Francisco 49ers. Meeks is the type of player you take a flier on. The 23-year old signed with the Jaguars as a UDFA out of Stanford in 2018. He was waived before the start of the 2018 season and signed to Jacksonville’s practice squad. Meeks was on the active roster for the Jags from October 6, 2018, through this past August, when he was waived.
Stanford jokes aside; Meeks is a great athlete. He ran a 4.49 in the 40-yard dash at Stanford’s Pro Day, but it’s his other testing numbers that stand out. Meeks had a 10.6 broad jump, a 39” vertical jump, and a 6.72 3-cone. All of those are well above-average. I believe you need to be a plus athlete at cornerback to succeed in the NFL, outliers aside. Meeks only played 47 snaps for Jacksonville in 2018. His coverage grade was a 75.0 in those snaps, where he broke up two passes.
The team should be familiar with Meeks, who participated in their local Pro Day in 2018. The beat reporters have been saying that the signing of Teez Tabor wouldn’t be the only cornerback signing this week. Maybe it’s Meeks. He’s currently on the Chargers practice squad, so if he’s visiting, that means the 49ers are planning to sign Meeks to the active roster.
