49ers Select CB Tim Harris with Pick No. 198 in 2019 NFL Draft

With the 198th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers selected Virginia cornerback Tim Harris.

Harris (6-foot-2, 197 pounds) played for six seasons at Virginia, which includes two medical redshirt seasons. He posted 36 total tackles and two interceptions as a senior in 2018. Over the course of his entire career with the Cavaliers, he racked up 109 tackles and four picks.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein said that Harris has rare size, speed and explosiveness. Harris' injury history contributed to his fall in the draft. He ran a 4.45-second 40-yard dash at his pro day. Zierlein anticipated that Harris would be a priority undrafted free agent, but clearly the 49ers wanted to take a flier on the corner's traits with their final pick in this year's draft.
