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 remain a popular team in the Los Angeles area, but Sunday's crowd at SoFi Stadium for the playoff-impacting game against the Los Angeles Rams was wild. The Rams were the home team, but you couldn't tell. That's because the crowd was dominated by 49ers fans, forcing the Rams to play in a hostile environment on their own turf. It got so bad for the Rams that the crowd noise forced the offense to use a silent count during critical moments in the game. It was too loud to ignore. "It was a tough environment for us to communicate in really the whole second half," Rams quarterback Matthew

Rookie quarterback Trey Lance got his second career start Sunday against the Houston Texans and came away with a convincing win. Lance was selected third overall in the 2021 NFL draft and is the heir to the throne as the future leader of the San Francisco 49ers. Sunday's matchup started a little rocky for the 49ers. It seemed there was a slight disconnect between Lance and head coach Kyle Shanahan early on. Kyle Shanahan told the CBS commentators that he's still learning how to call plays for Trey Lance and that it's going to be a process.Pretty clear that he didn't want to deal with that process in

The San Francisco 49ers are heading back to the playoffs for the first time since their 2019 Super Bowl run after a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory against the NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers were a 13-3 powerhouse in 2019, earning the #1 seed and a first-round bye, but this 2021 version, a 10-game winner and the 6th seed, may actually be better positioned to win it all than the 2019 squad. Let's compare the offensive position groups from each season to see who has the edge. Quarterback 2019 Jimmy Garoppolo 16 games, 329/476 69.1%, 3978 yds, 27 TDs and 13 INTs, 2.7 INT% Nick Mullens 2021 Jimmy Garoppolo 15 games,

Ambry Thomas makes a believer out of Shanahan, 49ers Faithful with game-sealing interception

The San Francisco 49ers had a long list of unexpected heroes in their 27-24 overtime win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, but none of them made for a better feel-good story than rookie cornerback Ambry Thomas. A third-round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft out of the University of Michigan, Thomas has come a long way in a short time for the 49ers after being used sparingly earlier in the year. Thomas was inactive for much of the first half of the season and only saw 20 total snaps on defense before Week 14, then was eventually pressed into action due to injuries and entered the starting lineup against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14. He had some struggles at first, but Thomas eventually came into his own and has been a significant contributor on defense ever
