  • 49ers' Nick Zakelj: Placed on IR, out for season

    Zakelj tore his biceps during Sunday's Week 10 win over Jacksonville and will require season-ending surgery, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Zakelj landed on IR on Wednesday due to the biceps injury, per Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston. All 18 of the second-year guard's snaps this season have come on special teams.

  • 49ers' Nick Zakelj: San Francisco adds in sixth round

    The 49ers selected Zakelj in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 187th overall.

    Zakelj (6-foot-6, 320 pounds) played tackle at Fordham and has the height, weight and athleticism to stick there in the NFL. What he lacks is reach, because his 32.5-inch arms make him a liability as a one-on-one blocker on the edge. It wouldn't be surprising if he played guard instead at the NFL level, and his athleticism (5.13-second 40, 110-inch broad jump) gives him a shot to make the transition swimmingly.
