NFL Draft: San Francisco 49ers Select Center Jason Slowey With 2nd Pick In 6th Round


With their second pick in the sixth-round the San Francisco 49ers selected center Jason Slowey from Western Oregon.

Here is how Slowey stacks up:

Height: 6-2 1/2
Weight: 303
Speed: 5.07
Arm: 33 1/8
Hand: 9 3/4
Wingspan: 77

Notes:

Also participated in basketball and track and field as an Oregon prep. Redshirted in 2007. Played nine games in ’08 and made three starts (two at right guard, one at left tackle). Started all 32 games at left tackle 2009-11. Also was a standout thrower on the WOU track and field team.

Summary:

Good-sized, long-armed, athletic Division II left tackle who engages quickly, works his hips and can slide and mirror. Shows foot speed, balance and body control to project to center in the pros, though he will have to answer questions about anchor strength and sustain ability. Is smart, plays aggressively and flashes some nastiness. Has moldable physical ability as a developmental conversion project.
