He’s a friendly face in the 49ers locker room.
He’s also hard not to miss.
After the 49ers beat the Seahawks at home in Week 15, Seymour was claimed by San Francisco. Since then, the former seventh-round draft pick out of Vanderbilt has become one of the more noticeable personalities in the locker room.
When I was looking to gather weekly pre-game songs last week, Seymour asked if he could include his selection: “Who Let the Dogs Out?” by the Baha Men.
I didn’t include it in last week’s Niners 365 mixtape, but decided I’d give Seymour an opportunity to showcase his unique personality for the 49ers Faithful. In doing so, a new blog segment was created.
So here’s a new installment, Niners 365’s “Meet this Guy.”
We posed several topics to Seymour and asked for his answers in a word association type of game.
