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.

Breaking down the 49ers drafts under John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan

We are less than one week away from the NFL Draft, and the San Francisco 49ers have their first day-one draft pick since 2021. That was the year they selected QB Trey Lance number three overall. The trade-up to get Lance cost the 49ers their first-round picks in 2022 and 2023. And now that they are back in the first round, at pick 31, fans are anxious to see what the team does with the pick. And with former assistant GM, Adam Peters, now in Washington, it will be interesting to see how well the 49ers draft without Peters in the room. We looked back at the seven drafts GM John Lynch and Head Coach Kyle Shanahan have led to see what information we could pull from those drafts. There were plenty of hits, plenty of misses, and a few surprises along the way. The draft picks are

49ers address both sides of the ball in Kiper and Yates 3-round mock draft

By David Bonilla

We're just 10 days away from the start of the 2024 NFL Draft. While many gain more confidence about their projections for the top of the first round, the picture of what might happen further down remains murky. Most predict the San Francisco 49ers will use their first selection, No. 31 overall, on an offensive lineman. However, an early run on the position may alter those plans. The 49ers may address another position, or they may have to move up to secure a top prospect. ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. and Field Yates recently revealed a joint three-round mock draft, examining the top 100 selections and forecasting
