49ers to work out Wesley College offensive lineman Matthew Gono

Mar 23, 2018 at 8:17 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have a private workout scheduled with Wesley College offensive lineman Matthew Gono, who was a four-year starter for the Wolverines. Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst reported the news of the workout.

"Gono, who started one year at left tackle and three on the right side, measured 6-4/316 pounds, completed 26 reps on the bench press, touched 9-feet-10-inches in the broad jump and timed 5.10s in the forty," wrote Pauline. "Those numbers are significantly better than the ones posted at the combine by Jamil Demby of Maine.

"Gono, who we presently grade at guard, is doing a private workout for the San Francisco 49ers and has official visits set up with the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions. He's the type of small school prospect who could make a roster this fall as a back-up for any of the three interior blocking positions."

Pauline reports that 20 teams flocked to Wesley College to watch Gono, which is a significant number for the smaller program.

"You see all those teams here — Jaguars, Bears, Lions — and I'm excited for him, I'm excited for our program," said head coach Mike Drass via the Delaware State News. "Our whole team was out here watching everything. That's a lot of fun."

Pauline, along with other draft analysts, grade Gono as a priority undrafted free agent signing.

The San Francisco 49ers have faced some serious roster turnover with their offensive line, as left guard Laken Tomlinson went to the New York Jets in free agency, while center Alex Mack chose to retire after one season with the organization. In addition, right tackle Mike McGlinchey is coming off a torn quadriceps injury that sidelined him for the second half of the 2021 NFL season, although head coach Kyle Shanahan believes the Notre Dame product should be ready for training camp. Earlier this week, PFF's Mike Renner conducted his offensive line rankings for 2022 with several tiers: Minor or no weaknesses(tier 1), high floor(tier 2), high-end potential(tier 3), at

The San Francisco 49ers would probably love to see Brandon Aiyuk emerge as one of the top receivers in the NFL. That would make an Aiyuk-Deebo Samuel duo a headache for opposing defenses. Until then, the 49ers have two impressive offensive weapons in Samuel and tight end George Kittle. That's good news for second-year quarterback Trey Lance, who is expected to be the team's Week 1 starter after starting only two games as a rookie. The Samuel-Kittle pairing ranks among Pro Football Focus' top five offensive duos heading into the 2022 season. Kambui Bomani explains that both controlling the middle of the field at an elite level landed them within the
