Here’s one thing about pass-rushers — teams can never have too many of them.
San Francisco addressed an EDGE need earlier in the draft, with Kansas State’s Jordan Willis fitting the bill. But in Round 6, the Niners add some depth with TCU EDGE Josh Carraway.
Carraway had eight sacks and 11 tackles for a loss last season, which is good enough production to warrant a late-round pick.
The 6-foot-3, 242-pound prospect could fit the bill as a backup LEO behind either Willis or Aaron Lynch in San Francisco’s 4-3 base. And Carraway could also be a decent pass-rushing option in obvious passing downs.
His run defense isn’t particularly great, but the Niners could look to simply let him play in situations that suit his skill set.
