49ers scouts talk with QB Vernon Adams at East-West Shrine Game practice

Jan 18, 2016 at 8:03 PM--


Let the 2016 NFL Draft speculation begin! Ryan Sakamoto of Ninerfans.com reports that San Francisco 49ers scouts spoke with Oregon QB Vernon Adams Jr. following the first practice in preparation for the East-West Shrine Game.


The 49ers will likely be on the hunt for a quarterback in this year's draft. Right now, the team has Blaine Gabbert, Colin Kaepernick, and Dylan Thompson on the roster. Gabbert finished the season as the starter after Kaepernick was benched and later placed on IR. Thompson spent much of the season on the practice squad before being elevated to the 53-man roster to serve as Gabbert's backup.

Adams was First Team All-Big Sky Conference in 2013 and 2014. He was the Big Sky Conference Offensive Player of the Year during those same years.



The East-West Shrine Game is on Saturday at 1 PM Pacific on NFL Network.
