A Former NFL Player’s Assessment of 49ers Rookie Cornerback Sam Womack


Our series with former NFL cornerback Eric Crocker continues today. Previously, he broke down 49ers rookies Danny Gray and Ty Davis-Price. Now, Crocker breaks down cornerback Sam Womack.

CROCKER: “One, he looks much greater than 5’9″, which is weird. It is perhaps attributed to his long arms. He has almost 32-inch arms, so possibly that makes him look taller. He looks more like 5’11” than 5’9″. And I feel he plays like that. You see his size and you think that he’s a smaller guy, he will play within the slot, but I saw someone who plays like an out of doors cornerback, which is just not a foul thing. I didn’t see super quick twitch, but I did see good ball skills, and his numbers reflect that by way of pass deflections. I feel he led the conference three straight years in passes defensed. That is big time. That is showing that on the very least this guy is in position to make a play on the ball. And more times than not, he’s making the play. That is awesome. I saw one play when he had an interception over his shoulder on a vertical route — that was good. 

“It was interesting watching him. I could not find an entire lot of film of him, but overall I saw more of an out of doors guy than a nickel, and that is to not say he cannot play nickel, I used to be just expecting to see something different due to how he was sold to me when the 49ers made that pick. I believed he was presupposed to be K’Waun Williams’ alternative. Once I watch him, I see a legit outside cornerback.”
