49ers sending Shanahan, Lynch, and Scangarello to Trey Lance’s pro day

Apr 18, 2021 at 6:49 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, general manager John Lynch, and quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello were in attendance for Justin Fields' pro day in Columbus, Ohio, last week. The same trio will represent the team on Monday at former North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance's second pro day workout in Fargo, per NBC Sports Bay Area.


On March 26, San Francisco surrendered four draft picks, including its first-rounders in the next three drafts, to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for the No. 3 overall pick. The team is expected to select a future replacement for Jimmy Garoppolo, with the three leading candidates being Fields, Lance, and Mac Jones of Alabama.

Jones was the betting favorite to be the No. 3 pick until Fields' workout last week. Oddsmakers then placed the former Ohio State Buckeye at the top of the list. Lance's workout on Monday could have a similar impact.

The 2021 NFL Draft kicks off on April 29 from Cleveland, Ohio.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters shortly after drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick. Here is everything they had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. I was hoping you guys could walk us through the timeline on this decision? The storyline out there is that QB Mac Jones was the guy that you liked about a month ago when you made that trade, but that QB Trey Lance has made sort of a furious comeback in the last couple of weeks. Is that accurate? Head Coach Kyle Shanahan: "No, it's not. We can go back to January for the timeline, which we don't have enough time to go all the way through. This



John Lynch says Jimmy Garoppolo embracing the competition after 49ers draft Trey Lance

Keeping a veteran quarterback while drafting his eventual replacement isn't a new idea. The San Francisco 49ers did that last week with the selection of Trey Lance of North Dakota State. They also intend to keep Jimmy Garoppolo, their starter since 2017, around. The Kansas City Chiefs did it with Alex Smith and Patrick Mahomes. The 49ers did it with Smith and Colin Kaepernick. The Green Bay Packers did it with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. It's a solid blueprint that allows a rookie to more easily transition from the college game to the pros, especially when thrown into an offense as complex as head coach Kyle Shanahan's. "First and foremost, Jimmy's really good," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "He's a



49ers' John Lynch clarifies what John Beck's role was in process with Trey Lance

One of the storylines heading into the draft was that the San Francisco 49ers suggested quarterback Trey Lance work with private coach John Beck at the team's request. ESPN's Dan Graziano was the first to report the news and stated that the 49ers provided Beck with a list of drills and things they wanted to see from Lance during his second pro day workout. Beck, a former NFL quarterback, previously worked with Kyle Shanahan when the 49ers head coach was the offensive coordinator in Washington. General manager John Lynch offered some clarification over the weekend. The 49ers didn't insist Lance work with Beck at all. The former North Dakota quarterback had an early



'I want Jimmy to be here': Kyle Shanahan excited to still have Garoppolo after 49ers draft Trey Lance

Jimmy Garoppolo remains on the San Francisco 49ers roster. There was some doubt whether or not that would be the case. Reports surfaced that the team might look to trade the quarterback before or during the 2021 NFL Draft. The 49ers drafted Garoppolo's eventual replacement on Thursday night, selecting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has repeatedly stated that Garoppolo remains in the 49ers' plans for the upcoming season and is slated to be the team's starter. That will allow the incoming rookie the luxury of sitting and learning behind Garoppolo. Some might assume the drafting of Lance might lead to some awkwardness in the 49ers' quarterbacks room. After all, Garoppolo is not far removed from helping guide
