Feb 27, 2016 at 5:33 PM--


Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the San Francisco 49ers met with former Memphis QB Paxton Lynch at the NFL Scouting Combine this past week.


The 6-foot-7, 245 lb Lynch figures to be the third quarterback taken in this year's NFL Draft. He was the starting quarterback for the Memphis Tigers from 2013 to 2015.

As a junior in 2015, Lynch started all 13 games, completing 296 of 443 passes for 3,778 yards, 28 touchdowns and four interceptions. In Memphis' victory over SMU, Lynch tied an FBS record with seven passing touchdowns in the first half in what would end up being a 63-0 rout.

In a recent article on this site, Lynch was looked at as a possible 49ers quarterback for the 2016 season.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Friday morning and provided several injury updates. Among them was news that cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon has cleared the concussion protocol and will start in place of Richard Sherman this weekend against the New York Jets. Sherman was placed on short-term injured reserve this week and will miss at least the next three games. Lynch did note that his calf strain is unrelated to his previous Achilles injury. The general manager saw Sherman after the game and noted, "It wasn't pretty the way he was walking." That, along with discussions with Sherman, led the 49ers to sideline the All-Pro cornerback for a few games. Witherspoon will fill in for the veteran cornerback and play

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Friday morning and provided some injury updates heading into the team's Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets on Sunday. The latest injury is to pass rusher Dee Ford, who Lynch said came in with some neck stiffness this week. "We sent him for some imaging, and we're waiting to kind of hear those results here this morning," Lynch added. "We'll let you know as we know." Tight end George Kittle suffered a knee sprain right before halftime during the 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend. He has not practiced yet this week but could still play on Sunday. "He did sprain his knee," Lynch said. "Is it out of the question that he plays? No. George is obviously very

John Lynch believes Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers will respond to adversity

The criticism was expected. The hope was that after shouldering much of the blame for the San Francisco 49ers' fourth-quarter collapse in Super Bowl LIV, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would come out against the Arizona Cardinals and silence his critics. That didn't happen. Garoppolo's numbers weren't terrible, but the 49ers still lost their regular-season opener last weekend. The quarterback always takes on much of the glory after a victory. He also endures much of the blame after a defeat. Garoppolo's struggles were apparent to those who watched the game and didn't solely rely on the stat sheet. Garoppolo was asked this past week to offer up a self-evaluation from Week 1 and share what he feels needs improvement. "I think there's
