We are learning that Blessuan Austin, the Rutgers cornerback who is coming off of a knee injury is headed to San Francisco to have a pre-draft visit with the 49ers.
Last year, Austin was considered the top cornerback in the 2019 NFL Draft. He is now hoping to make good to deliver on that promise, but he just needs a team to give him a chance.
The 6010, 198 pound cornerback will be in San Francisco to talk with coaches and visit their facility. There were several teams that have shown interest in him since he tore his ACL in 2017, and limited him to only play in one game in 2018. The Cardinals were at his pro day, the Giants have shown tons of love in the local talent and now the 49ers are showing tons of love.
