Draft Scout *Corey Lemonier News
09/29/14 - OLB Corey Lemonier did not play a single snap on defense in Sunday's win. He was used only on special teams.
09/15/14 - OLB Corey Lemonier had his second insignificant outing in Sunday's loss to Chicago. The pass-rush specialist has yet to record a sack in two games despite being on the field for 50 pass plays.
09/08/14 - LB Corey Lemonier was supposed to serve as a tag-team partner for LB Dan Skuta on Sunday as the 49ers were expected to use two bodies to replace standout LB Aldon Smith. But Lemonier, a pass-rushing specialist, was generally ineffective in the win over Dallas and eventually was replaced in that role by rookie LB Aaron Lynch. Lemonier did make three tackles in the game.
06/11/13 - The San Francisco 49ers signed third-round draft pick Corey Lemonier to a four-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Lemonier, 6-feet-3 and 255 pounds, is a pass rusher who started 26 of 39 career games at Auburn University, finishing with 100 tackles, 17 sacks, 24 tackles for loss, seven forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. The two-time All-SEC honoree fell to the third round despite intriguing raw skills after struggling down the stretch in 2012 - particularly against the run - and because many scouts feel he's a defensive end/linebacker 'tweener who doesn't fit all schemes.
A defensive end for the Tigers, he's expected to transition to outside linebacker in the 49ers' 3-4 scheme. San Francisco traded the No. 93 overall pick and a seventh-round pick to the Green Bay Packers to move up to select Lemonier with the No. 88 overall selection in April.
04/28/13 - The 49ers moved up via trade with the Packers for the second time on Day 2 to draft their second edge player -- a college defensive end likely to convert to outside linebacker -- Auburn's Corey Lemonier. San Francisco gave the Packers the No. 93 pick and a seventh-round pick (No. 216) to get him with the No. 88 overall pick (third round). He got off to a good start in the 2012 season -- five sacks in the first four games -- but wasn't effective later in the season. - The Sports Xchange
