John Lynch will attend Texas Tech pro day to watch QB Patrick Mahomes

Mar 31, 2017 at 7:18 AM--


Texas Tech is having its pro day on Friday and San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch will be in attendance. Lynch will be on hand to get a closer look at quarterback prospect Patrick Mahomes, per CSN Bay Area.


With Lynch are vice president of player personnel Adam Peters and senior personnel executive Martin Mayhew. The two have traveled with Lynch to multiple school pro days.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound quarterback had 11,252 passing yards and 93 touchdowns over his college career. He added 845 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns on 308 attempts. Mahomes took over for another quarterback entering the draft, Davis Webb. An injury to Webb thrust Mahomes into the starting role. Webb later transferred to the University of California and played the 2016 season as its starter.

During his junior season in 2016, Mahomes led the country in multiple categories, including yards per game (421), passing yards (5,052), total touchdowns (53), and total offense (5,312). He was the winner of the Sammy Baugh Trophy which is awarded annually to the nation's top quarterback.

In his final year with the Red Raiders, Mahomes threw 41 touchdowns compared to 10 interceptions. That was an improvement compared to the 36 touchdowns and 15 interceptions that he threw the year before.

Lynch has already been present at the pro days of North Carolina, where he watched quarterback Mitch Trubisky, and Notre Dame, where he watched quarterback DeShone Kizer. He also took part in a semi-private workout with one other NFL team and Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Will Jimmy Garoppolo return to the 49ers? 'I think we've spoken clearly to that,' says John Lynch

General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan sat down to speak with reporters (virtually, of course) on Monday and discussed the future of the San Francisco 49ers. The two expect quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to be part of that future. "Yes, I want Jimmy back as (part of) our core," Shanahan said. "Good thing he's not a free agent. ... Of course I want our starting quarterback back and all our other starting players too." The two were asked about Garoppolo because the quarterback position is slated to be this offseason's top 49ers-related storyline, just as it was last offseason leading to free agency. Lynch and Shanahan backed Garoppolo as the starting quarterback next season, as they have repeatedly done each time they are asked about
