The 49ers last season selected three injured players among their 11 draft picks. They could employ a similar philosophy during next month’s draft due to a deep roster and 11 scheduled selections. The 49ers will have a private visit with at least one such draft candidate. Oklahoma cornerback Aaron Colvin, who sustained a torn ACL in his second practice at the Senior Bowl in January, is scheduled to visit the 49ers, he told SiriusXM NFL Radio. Colvin (5 foot 11, 177 pounds) is expected to be a late-round pick in the draft. He said he has already visited the Philadelphia Eagles and also has a visit scheduled with the New Orleans Saints. The 49ers are expected to give Colvin a physical when he visits the club’s Santa Clara training complex to see where he is in his rehabilitation. Last year, the 49ers selected three injured players: Defensive lineman Tank Carradine (knee) in the second round, running back Marcus Lattimore (knee) in the fourth, and defensive lineman Quinton Dial (toe) in the fifth round.
Which under-the-radar CB should 49ers select at No. 30 overall?
