49ers work out SMU prospects Evan Brown and Mason Gentry

Apr 4, 2018 at 8:57 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers reportedly worked out two SMU offensive lineman this week, according to the Sacramento Bee. The first was center Evan Brown, who has experience at guard, and the second is a converted defensive lineman, Mason Gentry.

Brown (6-2, 307) impressed during SMU's pro day, posting a 4.97-second 40-time, 36-inch vertical leap, and bench pressing 225 pounds 36 times. He started 13 games at center as a senior for the Mustangs in 2017 on an offense that ranked 12th in the nation in scoring, 15th in total offense, and 19th in passing. As a junior, he started all 12 games at center for SMU and started 12 games at right guard as a sophomore in 2015.

Gentry (6-6, 310) posted a 5.14-second 40-time and 28 repetitions on the bench press at the SMU pro day. He played along the Mustangs' defensive line while compiling 107 combined tackles, eight for a loss, 4.5 sacks, and four passes defensed in four seasons. Gentry has the size to possibly play guard for an NFL team.

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

Here's how John Lynch responded when asked if 49ers might be interested in Antonio Brown

Wide receiver Antonio Brown cleared waivers on Friday after being released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday. That officially makes him a free agent. However, teams may be hesitant to sign him given how things ended with his former team. During the third quarter of the Buccaneers' Week 17 contest against the New York Jets, Brown shockingly took off his helmet, jersey, and pads, and then exited MetLife Stadium. "He is no longer a Buc," head coach Bruce Arians said after the game. On Friday morning, before Brown cleared waivers, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch took part in his weekly KNBR interview. Surprisingly, he was asked if his team might be interested in Brown given his 49ers might be headed to the playoffs with a win over

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

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo toughs it out to win OT thriller against the Rams

The San Francisco 49ers' decision to play quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Sunday against the rival Los Angeles Rams was heavily scrutinized from the start. And rightfully so. Garoppolo suffered a torn ligament in the thumb of his throwing hand during the Week 16 game against the Tennessee Titans. That injury will require surgery this offseason. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan felt confident with putting Garoppolo out there Sunday in a must-win matchup to make the playoffs. The uncertainty of that decision left many fans on edge leading up to and during the game at SoFi Stadium. When the 49ers fell behind by 17 points in the first half of the game, it appeared that head coach Kyle Shanahan's decision was going to be the nail in the coffin for their season, as
