According to Justin Melo of The Draft Network, Iowa cornerback Michael Ojemudia met with all 32 teams in some capacity at the combine, meaning he also spent time with the 49ers while in Indianapolis.

Ojemudia was a consistent performer for the Hawkeyes, starting 36 games across his four-year career in Iowa City. As a junior, in nine starts, Ojemudia had 39 total tackles, three interceptions, and six passes defended. As a senior this past season, he finished with 52 tackles, a tackle-for-loss, three more interceptions, and nine passes defended with a fumble recovery. His efforts earned him an invitation to this year’s senior bowl where he got the chance to compete against the country’s top senior talent. Jim Nagy, executive director of the all-star showcase in Mobile, Alabama, was a big fan of Ojemudia’s performance throughout the week.

He also posted this a couple of weeks ago on his twitter:

While these visits are usually just the team doing their due diligence, there’s always room for more cornerbacks with an attitude that doesn’t shy away from the most intimidating of pass-catchers. After seeing what this defense has transformed into over the last eight months, I think Ojemudia would fit right in.
