49ers running back Tyrion Davis-Price (Round 3)
Hopefully, soon enough, all of us will be able to get over the fact San Francisco reached on former LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price in Round 3 at No. 93 overall when there were other needs more pressing, combined with the likelihood Davis-Price would have been available in later rounds.
Simply put, he’s here now.
However, Sports Illustrated’s Grant Cohn wasn’t too kind on the 6-foot, 211-pound bruiser who doesn’t seem like a tailor-made fit for head coach Kyle Shanahan’s zone-style offense (he’s strayed from purely zone anyway) by calling out some important and not-so-important observations from rookie minicamp:
"I don’t know if he has bad hand-eye coordination, but that’s the book on him, and he certainly dropped a pass today. He was wide open in the flat, and he just butchered it. Later, he caught a pass and ran upfield with it. When the play was over, he casually tossed the ball to himself and dropped it."
Davis-Price had only 28 receptions for 185 yards during his three-year collegiate tenure, so maybe that won’t be his calling.
It appears, however, that the rookie runner didn’t stand out in any other positive fashion.
