49ers, Bills worked out QB Mitchell Trubisky last week

Apr 10, 2017 at 5:53 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers worked out North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky last week with the Buffalo Bills, per Matt Miller of Bleacher Report. The workout was run by 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. During the workout, Trubisky threw to North Carolina wide receiver Ryan Switzer.

On Monday, following the first day of the 49ers' offseason program, Shanahan was asked how the meeting with Trubisky went. "It went really good," he answered. "I enjoyed it. Met with him at the combine too and then got to spend a little bit more time with him last week."

49ers general manager John Lynch attended North Carolina's pro day on March 21 to take a closer look at Trubisky. As Shanahan mentioned, the 49ers also met with the quarterback at the NFL Scouting Combine. "He grows on you," Lynch said in February. "The more you watch him, the more you like him."

During the 2016 season, Trubisky's only year as a starter, he completed 68.2-percent of his passes for 3,748 yards, 30 touchdowns, and six interceptions for the Tar Heels.

According to Shanahan, the 49ers will also meet with Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson on Tuesday. Trubisky and Watson are expected to be the first two quarterbacks selected in the 2017 NFL Draft. The 49ers currently own the second overall pick and do not select again until the 34th overall selection.

The Deshaun Watson saga continues, and the star quarterback may have played his last snap for the Houston Texans. At least, that is the "growing sense" from sources in and around the organization, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter (h/t to Patrick Tulini). There is a growing sense from people in and around the Texans' organization that Deshaun Watson has played his last snap for the team. It's early in the off-season, there's a lot of time left, but Watson's feelings cannot and should not be underestimated.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter)

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah released his first mock draft and has quarterbacks going back-to-back with the first two overall picks, sending Trevor Lawrence to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Zach Wilson to the New York Jets.

They are Trey Lance to the Atlanta Falcons at No. 4 and Justin Fields to the Carolina Panthers at No. 8. So, where does that leave the 49ers? Selecting a tight end, of course. No controversy there, right? With all of the team's roster needs and nearly 40 players scheduled to become free agents, tight end isn't

Despite the fractured relationship, the Houston Texans remain the favorites to have Deshaun Watson as their starting quarterback to kick off the 2021 season. However, should the relationship be damaged beyond repair, a trade could be in the quarterback's future if he chooses to force a divorce. San Francisco 49ers fans would love to see what Watson paired with head coach Kyle Shanahan would mean for opposing defenses. However, that would also mean giving up a lot in terms of compensation to acquire the young playmaker, and oddsmakers have five teams — other than the Texans — listed as more likely destinations for the disgruntled quarterback. Below are the 10 favorites to have Watson on their rosters during Week 1 of the 2021 season, per Bovada and
