A scenario I mentioned earlier in which I anticipated San Francisco 49ers GM Trent Baalke to target Oklahoma State CB Aaron Colvin is slowly turning into reality as Colvin has been scheduled a top 30 visit with the club. According to an interview Colvin had with Sirius XM NFL Radio, the 49ers will be holding a private visit with him despite suffering a torn ACL during Senior Bowl practice.

Baalke who is known for drafting big school players with medical issues, as he drafted three players last season in DE Tank Carradine, RB Marcus Lattimore, and NT Quinton Dial, should not be surprised to see Colvin on his wish list. However, Colvin is not the only injured player I have the 49ers targeting as Florida’s DE Dominique Easley is also a highly productive player with injury concerns.

With Colvin set to visit 49ers HQ (Headquarters) they may have to fend off both the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints as both have high interest in the former Sooner cornerback.
