It’s a familiar story: a player is highly touted out of college and in high demand Womens Dante Pettis Jersey , looking to make the next step, until a devastating injury changes the course of their path. After his junior year at Virginia Tech, Antone Exum Jr.was a player who was projected to go in the first or second round after he had a stand out season his junior year. Exum played safety in his first two seasons in college and played well but it was the he switched over to play cornerback and recorded five interceptions that people really started to take notice. Then everything changed. In the spring of 2013 he tore his ACL and lateral meniscus in a pick up basketball game. In 2014 he sat out the first seven weeks as he continued to rehab from surgery. In his third game back he sprained his ankle and his season, again, was over. Exum was drafted in the 6th round, 182 overall pick Youth Richard Sherman Jersey , in the 2014 draft by the Vikings. He played in 26 games for Minnesota before going on IR in December of 2015 from injuries to his shoulder and ribs. In 2016 he suffered a knee injury in game preseason game and the Vikings placed him on IR for the remainder of the season. In May of 2017 during Vikings OTAs a teammate fell into Exum’s leg and he again suffered a knee injury. He was cut by the team in September and remained a free agent until the 49ers signed him in November. In June the team signed Exum to a one year contract in June, 2018 and then subsequently cut him on September first and signed him again on September third as the team set it’s 53 man roster. With the health of the 49ers secondary in question, namely Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) and Adrian Colbert (hip), Exum has found himself in a starting role on the defense. Exum started off the game with a bang, surprising Philip Rivers and the crowd at Stub Hub Center in the first drive of the game coming up with a pick six on a pass intended for Keenan Allen. He continued to impress, ending the day with three solo tackles and three pass breakups in addition to his interception. He remained humble after the loss and spoke about the defense’s preparation throughout the week:The defense is still having difficulty missing tackles in games but at least they did seem to improve in the first half of the game. While Colbert was healthy enough to dress in Los Angeles Womens Alfred Morris Jersey , he only went into the game on special teams as he is not completely healthy and did not get enough practice reps throughout the week according to Kyle Shanahan. Tartt is expected to return to practice this week in a limited capacity but until the two are healthy, Exum will have his chance to show he is capable enough to hold down a spot on the roster.PFF’s first 2019 NFL mock draft has 49ers looking wide receiver I know, it’s only Week 4.I know, it’s probably too early for a mock draft.I know we’re all still reeling over the recent loss of Jimmy Garoppolo.If anything, let Pro Football Focus’ first 2019 NFL mock draft take your mind off the feeling of impending doom sweeping over you. There are several positions-of-need that the 49ers can effectively address in the 2019 NFL Draft — most notably at edge rusher. There is plenty of talent that can be found both near the beginning and the end of the first round, which is most likely the main reason why John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan decidedly skipped out on addressing this critical need in the 2018 NFL Draft.It’s interesting that they have San Francisco selecting Arizona State wide receiver N’Keal Harry with the 13th overall selection. Here’s what PFF had to say about the pick.If things transgressed as they do in PFF’s mock Authentic Richard Sherman Jersey , it’d be more likely for the Niners to address their defensive needs before drafting a receiver. Dante Pettis has shown flashes so it wouldn’t make a ton of sense to spend a 1st round pick on a wide receiver unless there was Julio Jones-esque potential. The top five of PFF’s mock draft went as follows:1. New York Giants – Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon2. Buffalo Bills – Nick Bosa, Edge, Ohio State3. Cleveland Browns – Jeffery Simmons, DT Womens Mike McGlinchey Jersey , Mississippi State4. Arizona Cardinals – DeAndre Baker, CB, Georgia5. Detroit Lions – Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
