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.

Have Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch mismanaged the 49ers QB situation?

The San Francisco 49ers plan was set. Draft a young quarterback who would eventually replace Jimmy Garoppolo. The young draftee would be able to sit and learn under the veteran Garoppolo, and then take over in 2022. But things haven't exactly gone according to plan, and on Sunday, the plan imploded when Trey Lance broke his ankle—an injury that will cost him the remainder of the 2022 season. Much has been made about how well (or poorly) Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch have managed the 49ers quarterbacks. I've seen many fans and media blaming Shanahan for the current situation. Many have criticized the duo for how messy the QB situation has been since trading away two first-round round picks, and swapping another first-round pick, to draft a quarterback. Have



John Lynch: George Kittle has 'looked good' in practices ahead of 49ers-Broncos

The San Francisco 49ers' All-Pro tight end, George Kittle, practiced for the second consecutive day. He appears on track to make his 2022 season debut on Sunday against the Denver Broncos after sustaining a groin injury on September 5. "Well, George, he's had two good practices, so that's a great thing," general manager John Lynch told KNBR's Tom Tolbert and Adam Copeland. "George, he's got a lot of really special qualities. Number one, he's really good at what he does, and he's a very versatile player in that he's very good in the run game [and] he's very good in the pass game. "But there is another quality that George brings to this team. He kind of lifts us. He lifts everybody around here because he's a character. But it's real; it's genuine. And he just lifts



John Lynch explains why criticisms of 49ers' Trey Lance usage are 'flawed'

Before jumping on his regular interview on KNBR, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch spoke with his young injured quarterback, Trey Lance. Unfortunately, Lance won't return to the football field this season after suffering a broken ankle on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Fans have debated how the 49ers—head coach Kyle Shanahan specifically—unitized the developing second-year quarterback. Lance ran the football 16 times for 67 rushing yards through five quarters this season, putting him on pace for 217 carries for 911 yards before the injury. Lynch was asked about the idea that Shanahan put Lance in harm's way and how he would respond to the criticisms. "Well, look, I think hindsight is 20/20," Lynch responded, speaking



John Lynch not concerned about Jimmy Garoppolo's competitive nature, doesn't believe QB has resentment towards 49ers

On Friday, general manager John Lynch had a chance to respond to some of the fallout resulting from the San Francisco 49ers' Week 3 loss to the Denver Broncos. Much of the blame has been placed on the shoulders of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. However, it isn't just for his poor play on the football field, leading to the 11-10 loss in the Mile High City. Former 49ers tight end Brent Jones criticized Garoppolo for his lack of frustration following the Week 3 defeat. Garoppolo was seen smiling as he greeted an old teammate, offensive tackle Cameron Fleming, who was part of the same New England Patriots 2014 draft class as the 49ers quarterback. "It almost
