The San Francisco 49ers had been a in model crew at this year’s Senior Bowl with a lot of prospects singling them out among their easiest meetings. Draft Wire’s Justin Melo on Monday reported Minnesota cornerback Benjamin St. Juste met with the 49ers in Cell, Ala. and talked about he had a nice connection with the crew.
St. Juste isn’t one of the crucial tip prospects in this year’s draft class, but San Francisco’s need at cornerback likely methodology they’ll decide out a pair of. A Day 3 prospect like St. Juste can also create a lot of sense for them.
The native Canadian brings acceptable dimension at 6-3, 205 kilos, but his occupation numbers are slightly of deflated after Minnesota performed upright 5 games during the 2020 season.
He finished his two-year occupation as a Golden Gopher with 59 tackles and 13 movement breakups in 18 games. He moreover performed his freshman season as a varied teams contributor for the University of Michigan ahead of redshirting in 2018 and transferring the following year.
A prospect like St. Juste’s who’s lack of consciousness will push him down draft boards can be an top target for the 49ers behind in the draft. His dimension alone makes him intriguing, but he strikes neatly for a gargantuan corner, makes employ of his length effectively, and isn’t afraid to regain his arms soiled in the speed game. If he can extend at all against NFL competition he can also at final assemble into a nice behind-spherical find.
