49ers’ Adam Peters was in attendance to watch Josh Rosen vs Stanford

Sep 24, 2017 at 10:02 AM--

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen completed 40 of his 60 passes for 480 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in a losing effort to Stanford on Saturday. The Cardinal beat the Bruins 58-34.

The San Francisco 49ers had at least one representative in attendance to presumably watch the Bruins' star quarterback. 49ers vice president of player personnel Adam Peters was in attendance at Stanford Stadium to watch Rosen, according to Nick Wagoner of ESPN and Dylana DeSimone of Fourth & Nine.

The 49ers are widely expected to be in search of a franchise quarterback during the 2018 offseason. That could include one of the top prospects in next year's draft, which is expected to have a strong quarterback class. Rosen is among those top prospects.

Prior to the start of the regular season, general manager John Lynch said the nice thing about scouting this year is that all of the top quarterback prospects would be coming to the Bay Area. Rosen and USC's Sam Darnold were in town this weekend with the Trojans playing Cal. Wyoming's Josh Allen is scheduled to visit San Jose State in November.

The 49ers drafted quarterback C.J. Beathard out of Iowa in the third round of April's draft. However, it is unknown if the team views him as a long-term solution.

In his six games in 2016, Rosen completed 59.3-percent of his passes for 1,915 yards, 10 touchdowns, and five interceptions.

In November, Rosen had surgery on his throwing shoulder to repair the soft tissue injury that ended his season. Through four games in 2017, Rosen has completed 65.5-percent of his passes for 1,763 yards, 16 touchdowns, and four interceptions.

49ers considered trading Mike McGlinchey last year

Mike McGlinchey received a life-changing payday, signing a five-year, $87.5 million deal with the Denver Broncos. The offensive tackle has known for a while that he would not return to the San Francisco 49ers, the only NFL team he has played for and the one that made him the No. 9 overall pick in 2018. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan made it clear to McGlinchey that he was likely playing his final months for the team. There was too much money invested in other spots, and the 49ers knew they couldn't compete with other interested teams. Behind the scenes, Lynch and Shanahan kept McGlinchey in the loop of what the team was thinking, and everything pointed to the tackle playing elsewhere in 2023 … maybe even

Brock Purdy can begin throwing again sometime in June. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is expected to be ready to hit the field—practice or in-game—sometime in September. Purdy is recovering from surgery to repair the tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow, an injury sustained in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He hasn't been seen since the surgery, with his last public appearance taking place In Arizona, during the week leading to the Super Bowl. One fan spotted Purdy, though, getting a photo with the 49ers quarterback (h/t TheSFNiners). As expected, Purdy is wearing a massive brace on his throwing arm,

Isaiah Oliver discusses strengths, looking to help 49ers in any way

It should be comforting to San Francisco 49ers fans to learn that Falcons fans on social media were unhappy with the news that cornerback Isaiah Oliver wasn't returning to Atlanta. Oliver signed a two-year deal with the Niners and will likely compete for the nickel cornerback spot made vacant by the departure of Jimmie Ward to the Houston Texans. Oliver has played 77 percent of his 510 defensive snaps in the slot over the last two seasons, per Pro Football Focus. "I definitely felt much more comfortable in there," Oliver said on Thursday, speaking to 49ers reporters for the first time. "I felt like I was able to kind of play to my strengths a little more. Just being around the ball,
