QB Mitch Trubisky has an individual workout scheduled with the 49ers

Mar 21, 2017 at 10:39 AM--


Representatives for the San Francisco 49ers, including general manager John Lynch, are in Chapel Hill for North Carolina's pro day. Among the participants is quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who is expected to be one of the top quarterbacks selected in the 2017 NFL Draft, which kicks off on April 27.

The 49ers will have another opportunity to take an even closer look at Trubisky. According to Andrew Carter of the Charlotte Observer, the 49ers are among several teams with which Trubisky will have an individual workout.


The 49ers currently own the second overall selection in the upcoming draft and do not have another selection until the 34th overall pick. If the 49ers were genuinely interested in drafting a highly touted quarterback, they would likely have their pick at the number two spot with the Cleveland Browns widely expected to select defensive end Myles Garrett out of Texas A&M.

The biggest knock on the 6-foot-2 Trubisky is his experience. He has only spent one season as a starter for the Tar Heels. However, during that 2016 season, he completed 68.2-percent of his passes for 3,748 yards, 30 touchdowns, and six interceptions.

"He grows on you," Lynch said of Trubisky at the NFL Scouting Combine. "The more you watch him, the more you like him."

The 49ers are making their rounds with the top quarterbacks in this year's draft class this week. They will have a semi-private workout with Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson and head over to South Bend on Thursday for Notre Dame's pro day to watch quarterback DeShone Kizer. The 49ers will be joined by one other team for their workout with Watson.

Earlier in the month, the 49ers met with Trubisky, Watson, and Kizer at the NFL Scouting Combine. Since then, the team has signed two free agent quarterbacks. Former Chicago Bears quarterbacks Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley signed with the team to kick off free agency.

Todd McShay has 49ers going cornerback, not quarterback, in latest mock draft

With the 2020 NFL season over for those teams not in the playoffs, like the San Francisco 49ers, it's officially mock-draft season. The Niners own the No. 12 overall pick in this year's rookie selection process. ESPN analyst Todd McShay released his latest mock draft, which does not include any trades, given the draft is still months away. He has just two quarterbacks — Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Zach Wilson of BYU — being selected ahead of the 49ers' first-round selection. Yet, the analyst doesn't have general manager John Lynch, head coach Kyle Shanahan, and company going

Brandon Aiyuk has John Lynch excited about the 49ers' future

By the end of the 2020 season, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk looked a lot more comfortable in the San Francisco 49ers offense and appeared ready to leap to becoming a dangerous offensive weapon. From Week 7 through Week 15, Aiyuk averaged 94.7 receiving yards per game through six appearances. To put that into perspective, maintaining that average throughout a 16-game season would clock in at 1,514 receiving yards. Aiyuk has just scratched the surface. That has 49ers general manager John Lynch excited. The young receiver would have benefited more from a normal offseason leading into his rookie year. That didn't happen, and it may have contributed to a slower start. "Brandon Aiyuk, he's everything we thought he would be, and a little bit more,"

Pro Football Focus released what is sure to be a controversial mock draft, at least in the eyes of San Francisco 49ers fans. Anthony Treash admits that this mock doesn't necessarily represent what he thinks will happen during the annual rookie selection event, but what he would do if he were in charge of each team's draft. Many predict that the 49ers brass might go quarterback with the team's first-round pick, even though John Lynch recently said that isn't the plan right
