The New York Jets, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, and New England Patriots will also send representatives to the quarterback's second pro day in Columbus, Ohio. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch will represent the 49ers. Because NFL coaches will run it, the throwing session will have more of a feel of a private workout than a pro day and could raise Fields' stock in the eyes of Shanahan and the 49ers, who own the No. 3 overall pick.
