Baalke’s Film Review: Curtis Holcomb

Posted by Taylor Price on May 20, 2011 – 2:30 PM

For the second year in a row, the 49ers ended their draft by taking a small-school cornerback they deemed to be a valuable prospect.

It was Phillip Adams of South Carolina State who got the call in 2010. And this time around, the team selected Florida A&M cornerback Curtis Holcomb with their final draft choice.

The four-time team captain caught the 49ers’ attention primarily because of a strong pro day workout. The team went back to the film room to study more of Holcomb’s abilities and came away thoroughly impressed. General manager Trent Baalke divulged that information at his review of the team’s 2011 draft class.

“He’s all about football,” Baalke said of the 49ers final pick of 2011. “He’s a very smart young man and competitive.”

The 49ers felt Holcomb was a great value in the seventh-round, where he can compete for a spot in the defensive backfield and on special teams.

Holcomb’s highlight reel included an interception return for a touchdown and a nice tackle against the run in a game against the University of Miami which is pictured at the top of this post.

For his career, Holcomb played in 45 games for the Rattlers and totaled 12 career interceptions. In 2010, Holcomb was named second-team All-MEAC.

    I hope he is nothing like Philip Adams. He was horribble when in the game. And I still remember him fumbling a punt that cost us a game. Dont matter what school, just need smart players and coaches who know how to coach.
