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.

New San Francisco 49ers running back Trey Sermon was already familiar with at least one rookie teammate — quarterback Trey Lance. The two trained together, leading to the draft, and Sermon learned quickly how hard of a worker Lance is. "When I got that call (from the 49ers), I was excited," Sermon shared with reporters on Friday. "I was training with this guy back in Florida, and now we're going to be on the same team. It was definitely a good feeling." Sermon, Lance, and the rest of the 49ers rookies are taking part in a three-day minicamp this weekend. They were already hard at work learning Kyle Shanahan's playbook. The rookie minicamp will be their first opportunity to show the coaching staff how much they have absorbed. Sermon was asked



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



49ers' Kyle Shanahan explains why he decided on Trey Lance on April 19

On April 19, with 10 days remaining until the 2021 NFL Draft, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, along with general manager John Lynch and quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello, traveled to Fargo, North Dakota, to watch quarterback Trey Lance work out. A consensus had not yet been reached on who to draft at No. 3 overall, and there remained rampant media speculation surrounding who it might be. The 49ers were learning towards a player — Lance. They were since trading up on March 26. They were also considering Justin Fields of Ohio State. Mac Jones of Alabama was a safety net, in case plan-altering flaws were found in the other two. Jones was actually the first quarterback prospect who Shanahan studied as soon as the regular season ended. At the
