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.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Friday morning and provided several injury updates. Among them was news that cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon has cleared the concussion protocol and will start in place of Richard Sherman this weekend against the New York Jets. Sherman was placed on short-term injured reserve this week and will miss at least the next three games. Lynch did note that his calf strain is unrelated to his previous Achilles injury. The general manager saw Sherman after the game and noted, "It wasn't pretty the way he was walking." That, along with discussions with Sherman, led the 49ers to sideline the All-Pro cornerback for a few games. Witherspoon will fill in for the veteran cornerback and play

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Friday morning and provided some injury updates heading into the team's Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets on Sunday. The latest injury is to pass rusher Dee Ford, who Lynch said came in with some neck stiffness this week. "We sent him for some imaging, and we're waiting to kind of hear those results here this morning," Lynch added. "We'll let you know as we know." Tight end George Kittle suffered a knee sprain right before halftime during the 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend. He has not practiced yet this week but could still play on Sunday. "He did sprain his knee," Lynch said. "Is it out of the question that he plays? No. George is obviously very

John Lynch believes Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers will respond to adversity

The criticism was expected. The hope was that after shouldering much of the blame for the San Francisco 49ers' fourth-quarter collapse in Super Bowl LIV, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would come out against the Arizona Cardinals and silence his critics. That didn't happen. Garoppolo's numbers weren't terrible, but the 49ers still lost their regular-season opener last weekend. The quarterback always takes on much of the glory after a victory. He also endures much of the blame after a defeat. Garoppolo's struggles were apparent to those who watched the game and didn't solely rely on the stat sheet. Garoppolo was asked this past week to offer up a self-evaluation from Week 1 and share what he feels needs improvement. "I think there's
