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.

Young disappointed injury likely means 49ers-Garoppolo split; Why McFarland believes team has confidence in Purdy

Jimmy Garoppolo's value may have plummeted for the second time in nine months. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback suffered a season-ending foot injury during Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins. Most expected him to be a hot name entering free agency. Even if teams aren't worried about Garoppolo's most recent injury, they may be concerned about his track record of failing to stay on the field. Teams were scared off in March when Garoppolo opted to undergo shoulder surgery, leading to a lack of trade interest and the quarterback having to sign a restructured one-year deal to remain with the 49ers. It looked like everything was going to work out. Garoppolo and the Niners were rolling and looked like genuine Super Bowl contenders. The defense is the best in the



Dre Greenlaw: Brock Purdy has earned 49ers' respect, Super Bowl still within reach

On Monday, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner praised his rookie quarterback, Brock Purdy, now the team's starter. The Niners inserting the seventh-round draft pick into the offense hasn't shaken the players' confidence that a Super Bowl remains within reach. Warner had some words for doubters who feel that the 49ers can't achieve their goal with the last overall draft pick under center. "It's such an unlikely story to have Mr. Irrelevant come in, lead the Niners to a Super Bowl," Warner said. "I think that's what everybody's going to write us off on, and that's fine. If that's what everyone wants the narrative to be, I'm completely fine with that. I'm so

It was a strange week for the San Francisco 49ers, who had to work through an unusual schedule that saw them arrive home from their Monday night game in Mexico City in the early morning hours on Tuesday, followed by Thanksgiving on Thursday. Still, they managed to work through it and prepare themselves to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and in the end they came out on top with a 13-0 win. How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more. Let's get it started... (See also:



The 49ers' Defense is Becoming Elite Again: 5 Observations about Saints-49ers

By JD Salazar
Nov 28

This 2022 iteration of the 49ers is endlessly fascinating to watch. One of the best teams in football one week, getting humiliated the next. Back to the future, forward with the past. But as turbulent and ramshackle as it's been, the 49ers are morphing into a team ready to dominate in the playoffs, just as head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have always believed. Here are 5 observations from yesterday's win over the Saints. 1. The Scoreless Streak Extends to 4… In the second half of the past 4 games, the 49ers haven't allowed a point. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. The Rams, Chargers, Cardinals, and now Saints have all failed to crack the scoreboard once after halftime. While only this last contest has been a pure shutout, that mark remains
