49ers meet with QB Connor Cook at MSU pro day

Mar 16, 2016 at 1:59 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers were among the teams that met with Michigan State QB Connor Cook at the Spartans' pro day today. Much of the 49ers' staff, including head coach Chip Kelly, are in attendance at San Jose State's pro day today, but ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Cook met with 49ers and Los Angeles Rams representatives before his workout and then Cleveland Browns representatives following his workout.


Even with Colin Kaepernick trade talks stalled, the 49ers are likely to be in the market for a quarterback in this year's draft. Most mock drafts have the team taking Cal's Jared Goff with the seventh overall selection, but it is just as likely that the team focuses on another position with that pick and chooses to address the quarterback situation in a later round.

The 6-foot-4 Cook completed 57.5 percent of his passes for 9,194 yards, 71 touchdowns, and 22 interceptions over his college career for the Spartans. He is the 2015 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award winner, was First-team All-Big Ten and Big Ten QB of The Year last year, and came in ninth place in Heisman Trophy voting.

Cook has won the Big Ten Championship twice (2013, 2015), earning the MVP award in each of those games, and led his team to a 2014 Rose Bowl championship, where he was also the MVP, and a 2015 Cotton Bowl championship.

Update:

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports that 49ers regional scout Steve Rubio and outside linebackers coach Jason Tarver were scheduled to represent team at the Michigan State pro day.

The San Francisco 49ers offense lost veteran offensive tackle Joe Staley and guard Mike Person this offseason. Both have announced their retirements from football. Could the 49ers offensive line be even better in 2020 despite the losses? Steve Palazzolo of Pro Football Focus believes so. The analyst ranked the offensive lines throughout the league, and the 49ers group came in at No. 8 on his list. That's six spots higher than the unit ranked during the analytics site's 2019 regular-season rankings. Palazzolo notes that the 49ers' offensive line should be even better in 2020, assuming its five starters can remain healthy. The team replaced

The San Francisco 49ers boasted the league's best pass defense last year, which was led by veteran cornerback Richard Sherman. He didn't do it alone, though. The group, consisting of Emmanuel Moseley opposite Sherman, and K'Waun Williams covering in the slot, earned a combined Pro Football Focus grade of 89.2 between the three players. That was good enough to rank it No. 2 on the analytics site's list of the NFL's best cornerback trios (h/t to Jeff Deeney). The trio of Stephon Gilmore, Jason McCourty, and Jonathan Jones with the New England Patriots was the lone

Pro Football Focus took a different approach to predict the records of each NFL team. The analytics site looked at the worst-case and best-case scenarios for the 32 clubs. "Injuries happen. Key players significantly improve or see their play start to deteriorate," writes Ben Linsey. "Talented teams fall victim to poor coaching and dysfunction. All that goes to show that there is a range of outcomes when talking about projections. The current environment and uncertainty surrounding the 2020 season adds more fuel to the fire." Pro Football Focus used season simulations by its research and development team to predict the high range (90th percentile) and low
