49ers add Purdue LB Jalen Graham with final pick in 2023 draft

The 49ers wrapped up their 2023 draft class by adding Purdue linebacker Jalen Graham with the 255th overall pick.

Graham is nearly 6-2, 220 pounds and started 35 of the 38 games across four seasons with the Boilermakers. He’s not a particularly strong athlete and doesn’t excel in coverage. However, he was a productive college player and could be a factor on special teams.

At Purdue Graham posted 169 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks 16 pass breakups and three interceptions.

He was the second LB taken by the 49ers in this year’s draft. The other was TCU’s Dee Winters, who went with the 216th overall pick.
