49ers hire Martin Mayhew as a senior personnel executive

Feb 9, 2017 at 1:38 PM--


San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch revealed on Thursday, during the team's introductory press conference, that the team has hired Martin Mayhew as a senior personnel executive.

Mayhew has experience as a general manager, serving in the role with the Detroit Lions from 2008 until 2015. Mayhew played cornerback in the NFL for eight seasons from 1989 until 1996. He spent time with the Washington Redskins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was part of the Washington championship team that won Super Bowl XXVI.

"My relationship with Martin spans more than two decades, and in that time I have developed a tremendous amount of respect for him both personally and professionally," said Lynch via a statement issued by the team. "Not only do we gain a tremendous talent evaluator, but also a highly experienced front office executive. Martin has sat in the seat as a general manager and his experience will play an integral role in helping us locate the type of football player we want representing this organization both on the field and in the community. I am excited to have him as a teammate once again."

On January 31, Lynch was able to bring in former Denver Broncos director of college scouting Adam Peters to serve as the team's vice president of player personnel. Since Peters would not be getting full control of the roster, Broncos general manager John Elway had the power to block the request to interview Peters but chose not to do so. Elway revealed on Thursday that his relationship with Lynch influenced his decision to allow Peters to join the 49ers.

The 2021 NFL Draft is a three-day event from April 29th to May 1st that will be hosted in Cleveland, Ohio. A select number of draft prospects will be invited to Cleveland to walk across the stage and shake hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL Draft will also feature draft prospects participating remotely across the country. Last Friday, the 49ers arguably made their most aggressive move since trading Joe Montana, as they gave up multiple picks to jump from No. 12 to No. 3 in this year's NFL Draft. In comparison to last week's Mock Draft Roundup, which featured primarily defensive players, the NFL pundits have now shifted their 49ers mock drafts to



Round Table: Who do the 49ers draft at No. 3 with Lawrence, Wilson off the board?

Last week, the San Francisco 49ers shocked the NFL world by trading up to the No. 3 spot in this month's draft. There is an overwhelming belief that Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Zach Wilson of BYU will both be off the board by the time general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan are on the clock. If that is how things play out, what will be their move? We asked the 49ers Webzone staff to predict who the Niners will select at No. 3 overall, should Lawrence and Wilson be unavailable. Below are the responses in the order in which they were received. Justin Wong Justin Fields, Ohio State For the 49ers to aggressively trade top draft capital and move into the No. 3 spot likely means they have one quarterback



My case for the 49ers to draft Justin Fields

When the San Francisco 49ers were drafting at No. 12, there was a lot of speculation about which quarterback might fall and who that might be. The only quarterback who seemed to have a chance to fall to twelve was Mac Jones. However, the 49ers aren't selecting at twelve anymore because they took a huge swing and traded three first rounds picks to move up to pick at No. 3. This means there will likely be three of the consensus top-five quarterback prospects still on the board. This is my case for Justin Fields. Fields is a unique specimen at the quarterback position. Everyone on Twitter wants to pigeonhole Fields into a "type" of quarterback and what he could become in Shanahan's offense. Some say he's a runner who can also throw. Others say he's a slow
