49ers GM John Lynch in attendance for BYU pro day

Mar 26, 2021 at 8:28 AM--

According to analyst Matt Miller, formerly of Bleacher Report, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch is in attendance for BYU's pro day scheduled for today.

The headliner at the event is quarterback Zach Wilson, who will likely draw any quarterback-needy team despite the expectation that he will be the second passer off the board and likely a top-three pick. Wilson completed 73.5 percent of his passes for 3,692 yards with 33 touchdowns and three interceptions, leading the Cougars to an 11-1 finish that ended with a win over Central Florida in the Boca Raton Bowl.

NFL Network will present live coverage of BYU's pro day.

Wilson won't be the only participant. He will be joined by 13 of his teammates and six former Cougars. The list below is the pro-day lineup of the 14 draft-eligible players participating. Among them is defensive back Troy Warner, the brother of current 49ers All-Pro linebacker Fred Warner.

  • DB Zayne Anderson
  • TE Matt Bushman
  • OL Brady Christensen
  • DL Zac Dawe
  • DL Bracken El-Bakri
  • DB/LB Kavika Fonua
  • OL Chandon Herring
  • OL Tristen Hoge
  • LB Isaiah Kaufusi
  • WR Dax Milne
  • DL Khyiris Tonga
  • DB Troy Warner
  • DB Chris Wilcox
  • QB Zach Wilson

Troy Warner recorded 28 tackles, 1.5 tackles for a loss, two interceptions, and two passes defensed through 10 games with the Cougars in 2020. Fred Warner also attended BYU, and San Francisco made him a third-round draft pick in 2018.

"I could talk all day on Troy. He's been having a great senior year over at BYU." said the 49ers linebacker during a November interview on 95.7 The Game. "He's the more talented brother in the family when it comes to football. I'm excited to see how he finishes out his season and obviously going to the next level. So the sky's the limit for him."

Richard Sherman is going through a difficult situation right now. He was arrested on Wednesday morning after allegedly crashing his vehicle, then causing a disturbance at the residence of his in-laws, and eventually resisting law enforcement. Sherman was charged with "burglary domestic violence," with the "domestic violence" designation being assigned due to the cornerback being related to individuals inside the residence where the incident took place. While Sherman and officers suffered some minor injuries before the cornerback was apprehended, no one else was injured. More troubling was the

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.
