NFL Combine sleeper No. 2: DT Gabe Hall, Baylor

Like linebacker, defensive tackle doesn't jump atop the list of San Francisco's needs. However, with Arik Armstead seemingly impacted by chronic foot issues and Javon Kinlaw a pending free agent, the 49ers need to find some interior depth with the potential of being a long-term starter in due time.

Baylor's Gabe Hall has some impressive measurements at 6-foot-6 and 290 pounds. With long arms and a rock-sturdy frame, he'll likely be one of those players who flashes strength as his biggest attribute during the NFL Scouting Combine.

A probable day-three draft target, Hall is a much better run defender than a pass-rusher, which is just fine enough for a Niners team that struggled against the run during Armstead's lengthy absence last season.

Plus, Hall isn't quite the sum of his parts yet and will require some coaching to hone the pass-rushing techniques he does have.

Keep an eye on that strength, though.
