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.

Pelissero: Justin Fields and Trey Lance pro days to feature drills and throws from 49ers practices

Justin Fields of Ohio State will hold a second pro day workout on Wednesday. Five days later, Trey Lance of North Dakota State will take part in his second. Both are trying to ensure that they are selected ahead of Mac Jones of Alabama. Trevor Lawrence of Clemson is expected to be drafted No. 1 overall. The New York Jets are expected to select Zach Wilson of BYU at No. 2. Assuming San Francisco targets a quarterback, that leaves Jones, Fields, and Lance as San Francisco's choices at No. 3. Jones is the overwhelming favorite to be the pick if you ask members of the national media. Fans would much prefer the more athletic and higher ceilinged prospects in Fields or Lance. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch chose to attend Jones'



Neither Lynch nor Shanahan asked Nick Saban about Mac Jones, potential 49ers draft pick, at pro day

File this under interesting pre-draft tidbits. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan were in attendance for Alabama's pro day last week. That made headlines because the duo opted to watch quarterback Mac Jones rather than attend Ohio State's pro day to watch Justin Fields. Paired with Chris Simms' speculation that San Francisco might have traded up to the No. 3 spot for Jones, that spurred others to seriously consider a Jones-to-49ers scenario. Alabama head coach Nick Saban recently joined the Dan Patrick Show and shared that neither Lynch nor Shanahan asked him anything about his former quarterback, who helped guide the Crimson Tide to a national championship. And it wasn't because they didn't have an opportunity to do



Peter King: 49ers haven't decided who to draft at No. 3, Shanahan and Lynch to attend upcoming pro days

The San Francisco 49ers traded multiple first-round picks and a third-rounder next year to move up to the No. 3 spot in this month's draft. Soon after, quarterback Mac Jones of Alabama became the favorite to be selected by head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch. Members of the national media has started to back off a bit from proclaiming that scenario to be a near-lock. While they still declare Jones the favorite, no one is ready to admit that they are 100 percent certain what the 49ers' brass will do come April 29. "I think they have an open mind right now," ESPN's Adam Schefter recently told NBC Sports Bay Area. "I think they go into this
