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.
