49ers met with QB Patrick Mahomes on Thursday night

Mar 31, 2017 at 9:39 AM--

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch is at Texas Tech's pro day to watch quarterback prospect Patrick Mahomes. However, it would seem that the 49ers have already met with him, per a report by Draft Analyst.

"I can tell you Patrick Mahomes met with the San Francisco 49ers last night and also spent a good amount of time with the New York Giants," wrote Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst.

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 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.

The 49ers are widely expected to select a quarterback in this year's draft. They currently own the second overall selection and then select again on Day Two with the number 34 pick.
