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.

The San Francisco 49ers would love to find another tight end to complement George Kittle on the football field. Their attempts last year saw them draft two tight ends—Cameron Latu and Brayden Willis.

While head coach Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers coaches are absent, general manager John Lynch and his staff are in Indianapolis this week for the NFL Scouting Combine, evaluating prospects ahead of April's draft. Among those reported so far, three are tight ends. According to various reports, the 49ers have spoken with Theo Johnson from Penn State, Jaheim Bell from Florida State, and Jared Wiley from

The San Francisco 49ers defense was smothering the Kansas City Chiefs offense in Super Bowl LVIII. Chiefs star QB Patrick Mahomes was struggling, and tight end Travis Kelce was visibly frustrated, even appearing to push head coach Andy Reid on the sideline. It looked as if the 49ers might finally win that elusive sixth Super Bowl. And then it happened. While running back onto the field, linebacker Dre Greenlaw slipped and tore his Achilles. And while one can argue whether or not that injury cost the 49ers the Super Bowl, it certainly had a major impact, as Kelce, now mostly being guarded by Oren Burks, became a major player in Kansas City's victory. Greenlaw's injury, without question, hurt the 49ers bid to win Super Bowl LVIII. But how will the injury affect the
