Gruden’s QB Camp to feature Goff, Wentz, Lynch, four others

Mar 2, 2016 at 11:46 AM--


Fans of Gruden's QB Camp on ESPN will be treated to seven potential rookies this season. It was announced today that the following quarterbacks will be featured on the show hosted by former Super Bowl-winning coach Jon Gruden. The names of those quarterbacks are below.

Jared Goff, California
Carson Wentz, North Dakota State
Paxton Lynch, Memphis
Connor Cook, Michigan State
Christian Hackenberg, Penn State
Cardale Jones, Ohio State
Dak Prescott, Mississippi State

Goff, Wentz, and Lynch could all be first-round selections in April's NFL Draft with Wentz and Goff competing to be the first quarterback off the board. Numerous mock drafts have the 49ers possibly selecting a quarterback with their seventh overall selection, especially should the team decide to part ways with frustrated quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

This is the seventh season that Gruden will hosted the show. If you are not familiar with it, Gruden's QB Camp, which is filmed at ESPN's Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida, features segments of him conducting one-on-one interviews quarterbacks about to enter the NFL Draft. The fun part is when he tests their football knowledge by having them read and dissect plays.

Gruden's QB Camp will premiere April 12 at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN and will air across multiple ESPN networks and ABC leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft.

49ers projected to receive four compensatory picks in 2023

The San Francisco 49ers ended up with four compensatory picks in this past draft after losing one as part of last year's trade to move up to the No. 3 overall pick. Surprisingly, the 49ers didn't trade any of the others—or any of their nine total selections heading into the draft. According to draft analyst Lance Zierlein, San Francisco could end up with four again in 2023. Compensatory picks are awarded to teams when their offseason losses from the previous offseason outweigh the offseason gains. The bonus picks come in rounds three through seven. "The 49ers will receive the second of two third-rounders awarded for Mike McDaniel being hired as



John Lynch explains the 49ers re-signing Jason Verrett

The San Francisco 49ers re-signed oft-injured cornerback Jason Verrett to a one-year deal on Monday. For the team, it was worth the risk. When Verrett, who entered 2021 as the 49ers' starting cornerback, is healthy, he plays like one of the top corners in the league. The problem is his healthy seasons seem few and far between. Verrett has been in the NFL for eight seasons and has landed on injured reserve during six of those. Verrett's two healthy seasons, though, were impressive. In 2015, he recorded 47 tackles, three interceptions, a touchdown, and 12 passes defensed, earning a career-high Pro Football Focus grade of 88.4 and Pro Bowl selection. Verrett signed with the 49ers in 2019 and again struggled with injuries in that first season with the team. But a



The impact John Lynch believes Drake Jackson will have on the 49ers defense

The San Francisco 49ers' first selection of the 2022 NFL Draft didn't come until day two on Friday. Thanks to last year's trade package to move up to select quarterback Trey Lance, the team lacked a first-round pick. When the Niners' first selection came around, at No. 61 overall, the team again opted to bolster its defensive line, selecting former USC defensive end Drake Jackson. San Francisco has now used its first selection on a defensive lineman in six of the past eight drafts. The 49ers have focused a lot on keeping its defensive line well-stocked with talent, believing that making the pass rush a top priority will help every other position on defense. San Francisco added veteran pass rusher Dee Ford in 2019, just before drafting Nick Bosa,
