Watch: John Lynch speaks to the press at the NFL Scouting Combine

Mar 2, 2017 at 8:38 AM--


San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch stepped up to the podium today at the NFL Scouting Combine and spoke to the media.

Key takeaways from the discussion with the press:

  • Lynch went to the NFL Scouting Combine with John Elway once. However, since he was media, he was not allowed to sit in on the interview process and spent a lot of time in his hotel room.
  • 49ers interviewed Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer last night. "He blew the doors off it," Lynch said of the interview. "He's just a very impressive young man," he later added.
  • "We think he has a lot more in him and we're excited to try and pull that out of him," Lynch said of 49ers RB Carlos Hyde.
  • Lynch said the conversation with Colin Kaepernick was a good one and they understood that he would probably opt out of his contract but they did not want to close the door on the possibility of him returning to the 49ers. Kaepernick will be a free agent on March 9.
  • Lynch feels that the 49ers are further along with the offensive and defensive lines than a lot of other teams.
  • "He grows on you," Lynch said of North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky. "The more you watch him, the more you like him." Trubisky measured at a height over 6-2 on Thursday. Lynch feels that Trubisky made himself a lot of money with that measurement.
  • Lynch feels that the choice to sit out of bowl games, as Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey did with the Sun Bowl, will impact football for many years to come.
