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.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan on impact of no preseason, area where Jets may be tougher than Cardinals

There was some talk after the Arizona Cardinals pulled off the upset victory over the defending NFC champions at Levi's Stadium that the San Francisco 49ers may have been rusty. There's no doubt that the team was banged up entering the contest. It entered the game without two receivers who figure to be key contributors this season and its starting and backup centers out of the lineup. Then the 49ers' All-Pro tight end, George Kittle, suffered an injury midway through the contest. Although, he kept playing because ... well, he's George Kittle. But did the lack of a preseason impact the 49ers' performance during Week 1? Maybe. But it's probably not the only thing that affected the team on Sunday. It is worth noting that every NFL team was on equal footing when it

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was among those hit with a $100,000 fine for not properly wearing their face masks on Sunday. The NFL also fined the team an additional $250,000, as the league works to ensure that coaches and other sideline staff are showing that they are adequately protecting themselves from COVID-19. On Wednesday, a reporter asked Shanahan about the hefty fine. "I'm obviously disappointed," Shanahan responded. "I mean, no one ever wants to have to spend that kind of money. But the biggest disappointment was I think our organization has taken this stuff very seriously. I think our organization has been unbelievable with the protocols that
