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.

Rapoport: Kyle Shanahan says 49ers are 'definitely considering' Mac Jones but isn't tipping hand

First off, let's make it clear that it would be irresponsible for the San Francisco 49ers to deny anything when it comes to guesswork surrounding their 2021 NFL Draft intentions. Yes, they own the No. 3 overall pick, but that doesn't mean they want everyone to know what they plan to do. Everyone expects quarterbacks Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson to go one and two in the draft ... but it's the NFL Draft. Nothing is a certainty. A national narrative has been created that indicates the favorite to land with San Francisco is former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones. Maybe that will be the case. Maybe not. The team could also select Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are expected to



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

Justin Fields of Ohio State will hold his second pro day workout on Wednesday, April 14. San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are expected to be in attendance. Both missed the former Buckeye quarterback's first pro day to attend Mac Jones' workout in Tuscaloosa. Shanahan and Lynch will have an opportunity to see quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State in person too. He will hold a second pro day on Monday, April 19 — 10 days before the start of the 2021 NFL Draft. North Dakota St. QB Trey Lance has now scheduled his second pro day for April 19, or 10 days before



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
