49ers will meet with QB Deshaun Watson on Friday night

Mar 3, 2017 at 12:18 PM--


Draft analyst Matt Miller of Bleacher Report is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers will meet with former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson on Friday night as part of their player interviews at the NFL Scouting Combine.


Watson ended his collegiate career in dream fashion, winning a National Championship in the final seconds of the game with a game-winning touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow. He finished the game completing 36 of his 56 passes and throwing three touchdowns. Watson did not throw an interception against the defending champion Alabama Crimson Tide.

In two games against the Crimson Tide, both national title matchups, Watson has amassed 941 yards of total offense, thrown seven touchdowns, and just one interception against an Alabama defense that was in the discussion as one of the best ever. "You watch what he's done -- just putting a team on his shoulders and taking down a great champion," 49ers general manager John Lynch said on Thursday while addressing the media in Indianapolis.

In 2016, Watson completed 67.6-percent of his passes for 3,914 yards, 37 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions. He has a career completion percentage of 68.4-percent.

The 49ers will be in need of a quarterback because they will have none on their roster at the start of free agency on March 9. Colin Kaepernick is expected to officially opt out of the final year of his contract on Friday and no other 49ers quarterback was signed beyond the 2016 season.

The 49ers currently own the second overall selection in the draft, which kicks off at the end of April.

As revealed by Lynch himself, the 49ers have already met with former Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer. On Friday night, the team will also meet with former North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky, per the Sacramento Bee.

Kyle Shanahan expects Jimmy Garoppolo to be 100 percent for 49ers-Colts, hopes Trent Williams can practice Friday

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR this afternoon and provided two key injury updates. One was on his starting quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, who is returning from a calf injury suffered on October 3. The injury forced him to miss Week 5, but the coach sounds more and more confident that Garoppolo will be ready for Sunday's home game against the Indianapolis Colts. "He's getting better each day," Shanahan said on the Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "I mean, there shouldn't be any problem with him by Sunday at all. Any time you're coming off the calf injury like that, it takes a little time to get that soreness out, so you'll see it on some throws here and there. But each day it gets much better, and I think he'll be feeling 100 percent by



Sprains, Strains and A Weekend of Rain: Why the 49ers offense may struggle Sunday night

It could get ugly. Not just the weather, although it is expected to be ugly this weekend in the Bay Area, but also the San Francisco 49ers offense. The 49ers have lost three games in a row, and seem to be struggling to "find themselves." The team's offense lacks identity right now. And this Sunday, on a soggy Levi's Stadium field, they likely will continue to struggle. But the 49ers won't just be battling the Indianapolis Colts. They will also be fighting sprains, strains and a whole lot of rain. First the weather. Lawrence Karnow, Chief Meteorologist of KRON-TV, was a guest on The Papa and Lund Show on KNBR Radio today to talk about Sunday's weather. He is predicting a big storm for the



How the 49ers can beat the Colts on Sunday Night

Move over San Francisco Giants and their 107-win season. The 49ers are coming off their much-needed bye week and will face the Indianapolis Colts tonight at Levi's Stadium on Sunday Night Football. While it certainly felt good that the Dodgers were eliminated Saturday, it's time to get to the real action: an injury-ravaged San Francisco 49ers team. With a bye week during Week 6, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was able to heal the calf contusion that kept him out of San Francisco's Week 4 and 5 losses to the Seahawks and Cardinals, respectively. While Trey Lance is still healing from the knee sprain he suffered in his first NFL start, Garoppolo and nickel cornerback K'Waun Williams were able to get back on the practice field and are set to start Sunday



Why Rich Eisen says the 49ers would be 'crazy' to put Kyle Shanahan on the hot seat

If you spend a lot of time on social media, you probably noticed a very vocal segment of The Faithful calling for the San Francisco 49ers to fire head coach Kyle Shanahan. If not that, they believe Shanahan should at least be on the hot seat, and the outcome of this season to determine his fate. Shanahan was given a pass after last season's six-win campaign. His team was coming off a Super Bowl appearance, after all, and had just endured one of the most injury-plagued seasons in recent NFL history. Shanahan is also 31-38 as a head coach, including 2019's 13-3 season. If you throw that out the window, the coach has never guided a team to more than six wins. He could do so this season. However, after winning their first two games, the 49ers have stumbled through
