Kyle Shanahan, 49ers coaching staff won’t attend NFL Scouting Combine

Once again, the San Francisco 49ers coaching staff, including head coach Kyle Shanahan, won't be attending the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, per NBC Sports Bay Area. They're not alone in this decision; Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur, Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay, and Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy are among those opting out.

The 49ers have yet to find a new defensive coordinator after parting ways with Steve Wilks following their Super Bowl 58 defeat. Shanahan is currently conducting interviews to find a replacement.

While this marks the third consecutive season in which Shanahan will not attend the NFL Scouting Combine, general manager John Lynch, the 49ers' personnel department, and team scouts are expected to be present in Indianapolis for the yearly event.

Last year, when asked about Shanahan's decision to remain in Santa Clara during the NFL Scouting Combine, Lynch stated, "The good thing about Kyle is we're always talking. After a long season, we all need a little break. We really don't get it. We will get our break after the draft. But coaches, they do need that to kind of recharge, and I think we've got a system in place where there's a trust."

Despite the absence of the coaching staff, the 49ers are still expected to participate in player interviews remotely and can study the workouts independently.

Lynch added, "So Kyle not being here, that's not an indication that the Combine is not important to him or to us. Couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, I think COVID taught us all that they can be very much a part of this, via Zoom, with the player interviews. They can watch the workouts that happen. We all get tape, and you'll go back and watch them anyway."

We are less than one week away from the NFL Draft, and the San Francisco 49ers have their first day-one draft pick since 2021. That was the year they selected QB Trey Lance number three overall. The trade-up to get Lance cost the 49ers their first-round picks in 2022 and 2023. And now that they are back in the first round, at pick 31, fans are anxious to see what the team does with the pick. And with former assistant GM, Adam Peters, now in Washington, it will be interesting to see how well the 49ers draft without Peters in the room. We looked back at the seven drafts GM John Lynch and Head Coach Kyle Shanahan have led to see what information we could pull from those drafts.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy threw for a franchise-record 4,280 yards last season, leading the team to the Super Bowl and earning his first Pro Bowl selection. He held onto the football 39 times on the ground, rushing for 144 yards and scoring twice. This marked a significant improvement over his rookie 2022 campaign when he had 22 carries for 13 yards and a score. Purdy further displayed his athleticism during the 49ers' playoff game against the Detroit Lions last season, helping engineer a comeback victory while rushing for 48 yards on five carries. On Tuesday morning, Purdy joined the "Pat McAfee Show," acknowledging that he believes he can contribute more rushing yards if called upon. However, that decision rests with head coach Kyle Shanahan,

ESPN insider Adam Schefter recently shared his insights on the situation surrounding San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk during an appearance on the network's "NFL Live" show. Schefter clarified that while Aiyuk would like to remain with the 49ers, his priority is securing a contract that reflects his value, regardless of the team. When questioned about Aiyuk's desire to stay with the team that selected him in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Schefter responded, "Well, I think his desire to get paid is greater than his desire to stay in San Francisco, wherever that is. If the 49ers want to pay him, I'm sure he'd love to stay in San Francisco. If another team would like to pay him, I'm sure he'd like to go
