With the 190th pick, the San Fransisco 49ers took Georgia tight end Charlie Woerner.

About Woerner

Over four years at Georgia, Woerner never played a full season, with nine games in 2018 being his career-high. While he never produced much over his first three seasons as a Bulldog, his senior season was his breakout season. He caught nine passes for 78 yards and his only touchdown.

Over his career at Georgia, Woerner caught 34 passes for 376 yards. Woerner also made five tackles over his career and returned a punt in  2018.

He had two 100-yard seasons, in his sophomore and junior seasons. His career-high of 148 yards in his junior season. Woerner was a legacy at Georgia as his uncle, Scott Woerner was a Hall of Fame defensive back and helped Georgia win the 1980 national title over Notre Dame.

What the Experts Say

Hard-charging, pesky blocker whose lack of size and length make him a candidate for a move to fulltime fullback or H-back. Woerner simply doesn’t have it in him to give the defender a half-speed rep and he’s more than ready to collide into his target on iso-blocks or in space. He has the body control and radar to handle move blocking duties but lacks the physical traits teams seek. Woerner has some athleticism but was a relative non-factor as a pass-catcher and needs to stand out on special teams to bolster his chances.- Lance Zierlein, NFL Network

Team Fit

Woerner didn’t do much in college and was an extreme reach as he was projected to be a post-draft free agent. I don’t know why the 49ers took Woerner when Kenny Willikes was still available at defensive end and offensive tackle Prince Tega Wanogho from Auburn were still available.
