Report: 49ers visited with Dalvin Cook

The 49ers probably aren’t going to take a running back with the second overall pick in the draft, but there are a lot of ways for things to play out later this month so it pays to do homework on a variety of players.

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that the team had Florida State running back Dalvin Cook in for a visit on Wednesday. Cook has also met with other teams, including the Eagles and Browns, during the pre-draft process.

Cook seems to have dropped below Christian McCaffrey in the list of backs behind Leonard Fournette in this year’s draft, which could put him in play for the 49ers at the top of the second round. Doing so would give Kyle Shanahan a good receiver out of the backfield to fit into his offensive plans and a complement to Carlos Hyde that could make it easier on whoever starts at quarterback for the Niners come the fall.

    It would be one of those awesome scenarios that happen almost every year if Dalvin Cook slides all the way to the 34th pick. And with this years depth at Sooo many positions and the running back position loosing its value in this new Passing era, this is a very possible thing. But this still isn’t a priority or preference pick in my opinion. I like the Hooker/Cunningham suggestion or ideally we trade down and stock pile some 2nd round picks and then take Reuben Foster or the top edge rusher left on the board.

    It’s crazy he might drop into the second round. When people look back at this draft in a few years, it’s entirely possible he may be one of the very best players selected.
