The Sac Bee reports that the Niners seemed to spend a lot of time with Stanford fullback Owen Marecic at the college’s recent pro day.
Stanford’s pro day this afternoon was teeming with NFL personnel, although the bulk of them represented one team — the 49ers. Among the coaches making the short drive up Highway 101 were defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, offensive coordinator Greg Roman, offensive line coach Tim Drevno and running backs coach Tom Rathman, who put Stanford fullback Owen Marecic through cone drills and then spent more than a half hour chatting with Marecic in a corner of the practice field. Marecic is considered the top fullback in the draft and could go as high as the third round. Fangio, Roman and Drevno, of course, coached at Stanford last season. “He has a ton of experience and he seems like a great coach, so he’s giving me a lot of advice,” Marecic said of Rathman. “There are a lot of things to work on.”
