Penn State offensive tackle Donovan Smith is visiting the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday, according to league sources.

Smith has previously visited the Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills. He has also been invited to the Ravens' local prospect day on April 21, according to sources.


The former blue-chip recruit from Owings Mills High School ran the 40-yard dash in 4.98 and 5.03 seconds at the Nittany Lions' pro day workout.

Smith met with Ravens offensive line coach Juan Castillo during the NFL scouting combine. He also met with the Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

At the combine, Smith ran the 40-yard dash in 5.27 seconds, bench pressed 225 pounds 26 times and had a 32-inch vertical leap. Smith is 6-foot-6, 328 pounds with 35 5/8 arms and 10 3/8 inch hands.

Smith started 31 games at left tackle at Penn State and was named honorable-mention All-Big Ten Conference once.

Smith was given a return to school recommendation by the NFL advisory committee because they didn't project him to be picked within the first two rounds. Smith is projected anywhere from the third round to the fifth round.
