It had been thought that both Cal QB Jared Goff and North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz, predicted to be the top two quarterbacks taken in the NFL Draft later this month, would be visiting with the San Francisco 49ers this week. That may not be the case for Goff, per Mike Silver of NFL Network.
FWIW: Jared Goff is not currently scheduled to meet with the 49ers this week, contrary to some reports— Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) April 11, 2016
It had been thought that Goff would take part in the 49ers' local pro day on Wednesday, with Wentz also visiting in Santa Clara this week. The 49ers currently hold the seventh overall selection in the draft.

A number of the 49ers' coaching staff was in attendance to watch Goff at his pro day last month. They included head coach Chip Kelly, quarterbacks coach Ryan Day, receivers coach Bob Bicknell, running backs coach Tom Rathman, and assistant offensive line coach Eric Wolford.
Goff finished his pro day 61 of 69 with two drops and capped the session with a 40-yard pass completion. Following the session, Goff even threw some wet footballs after Cleveland Browns quarterback coach Pep Hamilton dowsed some with water. The Browns are reportedly very interested in Goff.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Goff to Matt Ryan, had the following to say within his scouting report:
While Goff is a little leaner in the lower body than teams might like, he has good size, an NFL arm, advanced pocket mobility and the field demeanor of a franchise quarterback. His accuracy and decision making will suffer from occasional lapses, but he displays the tools to become a good starting quarterback with time.
Quarterbacks currently on the 49ers' roster include Colin Kaepernick, Blaine Gabbert, Dylan Thompson, and Thad Lewis.
