49ers QB coach Ryan Day and area scout at Carson Wentz’s pro day

Mar 24, 2016 at 10:11 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers had a presence in Fargo, North Dakota today to watch QB Carson Wentz's pro day. However, it was a much smaller group than the one present at Cal QB Jared Goff's pro day last week, which even included head coach Chip Kelly. The 49ers sent quarterbacks coach Ryan Day and area scout Bob Morris to Wentz's event, per Chris Biderman of USA TODAY.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reported that he was told by Kelly that he would not go far for any pro days and that he trusts the 49ers' front office. Goff's pro day was local, so Kelly was able to attend that event. While Kelly had full control of his roster during his final year with the Philadelphia Eagles, general manager Trent Baalke has full control over the 49ers' roster.

NFL Network reported that Hue Jackson of the Cleveland Browns was believed to be the only head coach in Fargo today. Earlier today, the Browns agreed to a contract with Robert Griffin III, which may not necessarily stop Cleveland from taking a franchise quarterback with the second overall selection in next month's draft.

Wentz completed 63 of his 65 passes before being given the same water bottle test by Browns quarterback coach Pep Hamilton that was on display for Goff's pro day. His first pass with the wet ball was ... not pretty.


"I wasn't surprised. I wasn't sure if he was going to do it with me or not," Wentz said on the NFL Network following the workout. "Obviously the first one went into the dirt, but I got a feel for it after that and I thought it was alright."

Other than that, it was reported by multiple sources that Wentz threw the ball exceptionally well at his pro day. How did his numbers compare to Goff? The former Cal quarterback was 61 of 69 with two drops during his pro day and his tosses of drenched footballs was far more successful than Wentz's.

On March 26, the San Francisco 49ers shocked the NFL world by executing a blockbuster trade, moving up nine spots in the upcoming draft to No. 3 overall. After quarterbacks Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson are likely taken off the draft board with the top two selections, the Niners will have their choice of three prospects — Justin Fields of Ohio State, Trey Lance of North Dakota State, or the less popular choice among fans, Mac Jones of Alabama. Fields and Lance are seen as more athletic, and analysts feel both are the better long-term prospects when compared to Jones. Of course, the most important evaluation will come from head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch, with the former likely having the most influence in the decision. Most mock

Justin Fields took part in a workout this week in Columbus, Ohio, in front of potential suitors, including head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch of the San Francisco 49ers. That has caused the former Buckeye's stock to rise, and he is now the favorite to be drafted at No. 3 overall by the Niners. It was Fields' second pro day-style workout. His first took place on March 30. However, Shanahan and Lynch were not in attendance for that one.
