Source: West Georgia defensive lineman Tory Slater to meet with 49ers

West Georgia draft sleeper defensive lineman Tory Slater is scheduled to meet with the San Francisco 49ers on April 9, according to a league source. He has also visits with the Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks. Slater visits the Falcons on April 7 and the Seahawks on April 16. Slater had a 35-inch vertical leap, a 10-3 broad jump and bench pressed 225 pounds 31 times at his Pro Day workout. The 6-foot-5, 285-pound former high school wide receiver's athleticism has intrigued teams, prompting them to take a closer look at the Division II standout from Douglasville, Ga. Slater recorded 69 tackles, 16.5 for losses and 10 sacks last season. Slater had 600 receiving yards and six touchdowns as a high school senior when he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds and had a 15.0 personal best in the 110 meter hurdles.
