49ers on hand to watch QB Jared Goff at Cal pro day

Mar 18, 2016 at 11:46 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers were among the teams on hand to take a pre-draft look at QB Jared Goff at Cal's pro day on Friday. Representatives from the team spoke with Goff prior to his passing session. Of course, other teams' representatives spoke with him as well, including Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson, who sat on a bench for a discussion with Goff prior to his throwing session. The Browns hold the second overall selection in the draft next month.

49ers head coach Chip Kelly was not one of the representatives that spoke at length with Goff. Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle said that, according to Goff himself, Kelly just spoke to him in passing, simply saying "Hi" to him.

49ers coaching staff members in attendance to watch Goff included Kelly, quarterbacks coach Ryan Day, receivers coach Bob Bicknell, running backs coach Tom Rathman, and assistant offensive line coach Eric Wolford.

Goff's hands measured in at 9 1/8 inches at the pro day, which was 1/8 of an inch longer than the measurement that came in at the NFL Scouting Combine. He even joked about the measurement following the pro day saying, "They got a new measuring tape made for small-handed people."

Are 9 1/8 inch hands seen as a drawback for an NFL quarterback? The measurement is the same as 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr.

Goff finished his throwing session with a 40-yard pass completion and ended the day 61 of 69 with two drops, per Mat Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. Of course, all passes at a pro day are strategically planned and practiced to show off a quarterback's ability. "Some wobblers but some nice throws as well," said Barrows. "Long-ball accuracy not perfect but solid display at Cal pro day," notes Cam Inman of the Mercury News.


Following the session, Goff even threw some wet footballs after Browns quarterback coach Pep Hamilton dowsed some with water. Goff stated that he didn't expect to throw wet footballs but felt that the session went well.

Daniel Brown of the Mercury News and Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee clocked WR Kenny Lawler's first 40-yard run at 4.68 seconds and 4.70 seconds. RB Brendan Bigelow came in at 4.41. Barrows noted, "We are not trained scouts."

RB Daniel Lasco was also seen working with 49ers running backs coach Tom Rathman.

PFF projects Jimmy Garoppolo as a 49ers starter, Dee Ford as a player to watch

Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to be the Week 1 starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when they travel to Detroit to play the Lions. However, some wonder how quickly rookie Trey Lance will get up to speed and if the No. 3 overall pick could show enough in training camp to create a difficult decision for head coach Kyle Shanahan. Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus projected the starting lineups for all 32 NFL teams, and one of the biggest 49ers-related takeaways is that he has Garoppolo firmly situated as the team's starter, despite the analytics site stating in the past that it holds Lance in high regard and believes he will find NFL success. Lance is still a



PFF names QB among three 49ers training camp battles to watch

It's almost too easy to name the quarterback competition among the upcoming San Francisco 49ers training camp battles to watch. With players set to report to the team's facilities in Santa Clara next week, a lot of eyes will be focused on observing the progress of the No. 3 overall pick — quarterback Trey Lance. Should it be among the most intriguing competitions, though? San Francisco's brass has repeatedly stated that Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starter come Week 1. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in his veteran quarterback. His availability, not his ability, has always been the concern. That doesn't mean the rookie won't try to prove himself a quick study and unseat Garoppolo. "I definitely see it as Jimmy's the



Watch 49ers rookie Trey Lance fire up the crowd before practice

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan regretted not having a rookie player fire up the crowd during the first training camp practice this week. The team has tasked a rookie with doing so in previous years. Obviously, not last year, as no fans were in the stands for practices. "We usually do a rookie hype machine, and I feel like I didn't see it out there today," Shanahan told reporters yesterday. "So I was kind of disappointed with that. I'll get that corrected later today, but it was definitely different (seeing fans again). And I'm so pumped to see it in the stadium." Shanahan did get it corrected. Rookie quarterback Trey Lance, the 49ers' first-round pick, was the one out there getting fans fired up before today's practice — the
