Niners display significant interest in QB Pulley

He may not be on the level of a Sam Bradford or Jimmy Clausen, but Florida A&M QB Curtis Pulley possesses some qualities that the 49ers must find interesting.

San Fancisco head coach Mike Singletary and quarterback coach Mike Johnson were both on hand to watch Pulley work out at the Rattlers’ pro day on March 18. Pulley did not do position drills, but Johnson spent an hour meeting with him, going over film and diagramming plays on the blackboard.

The event took place outdoors on grass on a soft, spongy field — very poor conditions — with 18 team representatives in attendance.

Pulley (6-foot-3 1/8, 189 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.53 and 4.56 seconds (equivalent to a 4.48 on better turf), had a 34-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot broad jump, a 4.18-second short shuttle and a 7.20-second three-cone drill.

The other noteworthy player among the 14 prospects that participated was KR LeRoy Vann. Vann (5-8 3/8, 177) ran 4.59 and 4.62 in the 40, had a 35-inch vertical, a 9-10 broad, a 4.26 short shuttle and a 7.27 three-cone drill. Those numbers are not really a true barometer, however, due to the poor field conditions. He also did 16 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds.
