Nov 29, 2014; Louisville, KY, USA; Louisville Cardinals safety Gerod Holliman (8) returns an interception against the Kentucky Wildcats during the second half at Papa John
46. San Francisco 49ers: Gerod Holliman, FS (Louisville)
An interception machine, Gerod Holliman is one of the best ball-hawks in this draft class. The 49ers grabbed a steal with this selection. Holliman had 14 interceptions in 2014 with the Louisville Cardinals.
Holliman is a speedy safety who follows the eyes of the quarterback well and is a constant threat to pick off a pass. The 49ers defense has one of the best front 7 units in football, it is time for them to get a difference maker in the secondary.
This is a phenomenal selection for the 49ers. In a new era of 49ers football with Jim Tomsula as the head coach, the team will focus on defense in the NFL draft.
