Manning is an undrafted rookie out of Hawaii who spent the offseason and preseason with the 49ers.

He started 60-of-62 games played at left tackle and was a three-time All-Mountain West selection in five seasons for Hawaii.

He is undersized for a tackle at 6-foot-2 and 294 pounds.

He is a local kid. He is a native of Glendale who played for Apollo High School.

Niners Wire managing editor Kyle Madson gave me good reviews of Manning.

“Manning can actually play,” he told me. “He had a legit chance to make the 53 and some pretty plugged-in beat guys up here thought he would make it.”

He added that the 49ers wanted to get him on their practice squad and move him to guard.
