With the 249th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers selected Western Kentucky cornerback Prince Charles Iworah.

Iworah, a two-year starter for the Hilltoppers, recorded four interceptions and earned honorable mention Conference USA honors in 2015. The native of Nashville, Tenn., recorded a 4.32-second 40-yard dash and 38.5-inch vertical jump at Western Kentucky's pro day.

For more on Iworah, read the scouting report provided by NFL.com:

"Has bouncy feet and brings necessary reactive quickness to position. Has twitch and acceleration out of breaks to chase the rabbit. Explosive athlete. Showed off blazing recovery speed at his pro day. Played with an understanding of body positioning versus vertical routes. Will sink into laps of receivers and aggressively attack at the high point. Saw vast improvement in ball production from last season to this."
