The San Francisco 49ers added depth to an already strong group of linebackers when the team selected Corey Lemonier in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
The former All-SEC standout defensive end at Auburn is adjusting to life as an outside linebacker with the 49ers, but feels like he’s coming along in the transition most undersized defensive ends make in their first year of professional football.
Lemonier recently sat down with CSN Bay Area to discuss his progress and confirm the pronunciation of his last name.
Lemonier aims to make his name standout even more with strong performances in training camp practices set to take place at the end of the month.
