Alex Cappa, the pride of Humboldt State football, aka the “De-Cappa-tator,” aka “the Green Monster,” aka “Lumberjack Pancakes,” (okay, LoCO made those nicknames up) will work out for the San Francisco 49ers this week, days before the 2018 NFL Draft.
Cappa, a Bay Area native, is projected to be taken in the fourth or fifth round of this year’s draft, according to NFL.com.
After four stellar years as an offensive tackle at Humboldt State University, Cappa is set to be the first HSU football player taken in the draft in 27 years.
The 2018 NFL Draft will begin on April 26, at 5 p.m. However, day one of the draft will only include the first round. Likewise, day two of the draft will only include rounds two and three.
Unless he is drafted earlier than expected, Cappa, aka “Capital A,” aka “the Bay Area Barbarian,” aka “Swaggy Shaggy” (also made up), should be picked by a team on the third day of the draft, which begins on April 28 at 9 a.m.
The draft will be live broadcast on the NFL Network, FOX Sports, ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes.
