OL Colton McKivitz discusses being drafted by 49ers, isn’t sure if he will play tackle or guard

Apr 25, 2020 at 12:19 PM--


Former West Virginia tackle Colton McKivitz spoke with reporters via a video conference call shortly after being drafted in the fifth round by the San Francisco 49ers. Here is everything he had to say.

Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff.

I know that you're watching alone in Arizona. Were you able to FaceTime with your parents and did your mom have her draft board ready to go?

"Oh yeah. Yeah, she had it and I know she was getting a little nervous and then I was able to do some scrambling around when I got the Zoom meeting from the coaching staff and get them on the line as well. So, we're pretty excited for what's to come."

I'm just wondering, your draft analysis says that some teams were looking at you as a tackle and some as a guard. Just wondering if you knew what the 49ers were eyeing as?

"I had no idea actually. I didn't really have a whole lot of contact with them after the Combine and leading up to this. So, it was a pretty big surprise to get a call from them actually."

Do you have experience playing at guard?

"I played one game at guard in 2018 and then at the Senior Bowl I played at guard."

49ers' Kyle Shanahan discusses Trey Lance's injury, too many runs, seeks less Happy Gilmore

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR this morning, three days before his regularly scheduled appearance, thanks to the team breaking for its bye week this afternoon. Among the many discussion topics was his rookie quarterback, Trey Lance, who started his first NFL game this past weekend. The outcome wasn't what the 49ers hoped. The team lost its third consecutive game, this time against the Arizona Cardinals, and fell to 2-3. However, it was a good learning experience for the young quarterback. Unfortunately, Lance didn't emerge unscathed. The quarterback sustained a left knee sprain. The good news is that the injury doesn't appear



'It's a big concern this year': 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan discusses Javon Kinlaw's injury, development setback

Some fans are a bit too quick to write off defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, feeling that he is yet another first-round misstep by the San Francisco 49ers. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan still believes in him and feels the defender's injury setbacks can still be overcome. Kinlaw entered the draft as a raw but physically gifted prospect that could develop into a force along the defensive line. That development has been stalled as the 49ers do what they can to manage the second-year player's injury. Kinlaw sustained a knee injury on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys, forcing him to miss the season's final two games. He underwent a procedure after the 2020 season and then had what was described as a minor procedure to reduce swelling in the knee later in



'I know he can play': Carson Wentz excited about 49ers rookie Trey Lance's first start

Trey Lance was 17-0 as a starter at North Dakota State. Before him, Easton Stick was 49-3 as a starter. Before either of them, Carson Wentz impressed pro scouts during his 20-3 collegiate run. Five years after Wentz's first NFL start, Lance is getting his chance. A calf injury has sidelined Jimmy Garoppolo, so the No. 3 overall pick will start Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. One former Bison quarterback is excited for the other. "I definitely did get to know Trey a little bit over the last couple of years, and even going into the pre-draft process," Wentz told Rich Eisen today. "Great kid. Great kid. [He's] got a great head on his shoulders, and I love his



Kyle Shanahan breaks down the 49ers' play that saw Trey Lance stopped at the goal line vs. Cardinals

Rookie quarterback Trey Lance made his NFL debut Sunday and the day came with its ups-and-downs, as the 49ers failed to execute on offense, leading to a 17-10 loss against the Arizona Cardinals. Lance was featured heavily, as he threw 29 passes and ran the ball 16 times for 89 yards, which was questionable, given the amount of contact he faced in the game. One of those controversial plays came on 4th & Goal at the ARI 1 in the second quarter, with the 49ers looking to score a touchdown down 7-0. Running play-action, Lance faked the handoff to Elijah Mitchell and rolled to his right, electing to try and run for the score rather than passing the ball once his first read, the halfback, wasn't available. He was met by two Arizona linebackers, Isaiah
