Apr 11, 2016 at 7:27 AM--


Ian Rapoport of NFL Network is reporting that former the Michigan State QB Connor Cook will meet with the San Francisco 49ers this week.


The Chicago Bears are also set to have Cook in for a visit. The 49ers will have at least two other quarterbacks visit with the team this week. Cal QB Jared Goff is expected to participate in Wednesday's local pro day with North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz also scheduled to visit.

Last month, 49ers regional scout Steve Rubio and outside linebackers coach Jason Tarver were at the Michigan State pro day, where Cook worked out.

During the time with Michihan State, the 6-foot-4 Cook completed 57.5 percent of his passes for 9,194 yards, 71 touchdowns, and 22 interceptions. He was the 2015 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award winner, was First-team All-Big Ten and Big Ten QB of The Year last year, and came in ninth place in Heisman Trophy voting.

Cook has won the Big Ten Championship twice (2013, 2015), earning the MVP award in each of those games, and led his team to a 2014 Rose Bowl championship, where he was also the MVP, and a 2015 Cotton Bowl championship.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media said the following about Cook, who he compares to Brian Hoyer:

As a four-year starter, Cook has the big game experience and the production from a pro-­style attack that should warrant early consideration.The concern is that his short and intermediate accuracy has never shown the improvement and consistency that scouts expected to see. His inability to take over in big games this year could hurt his cause. Cook flashes the potential of an NFL starter, but he has the makeup of game manager over playmaker.

During the NFL Scouting Combine, Cook had a 40-time of 4.79 seconds, a vertical jump of 33 inches, and a broad jump of 113 inches.

The San Francisco 49ers hit the road for the regular-season finale as they travel to Los Angeles and take on the Rams. San Francisco has won each of the past five meetings between the two teams, as the Niners look to sweep the season series with the Rams for the third-consecutive season. The 49ers defeated the Houston Texans, 23-7, in Week 17. San Francisco's offense was led by rookie RB Elijah Mitchell, who rushed for 119 yards on 21 carries while adding two receptions for 11 yards and the first receiving touchdown of his career. His performance marked his fifth game with 100-or-more rushing yards on the season. Making his first home start, QB Trey Lance completed 16 of 23 passing attempts for 249 yards, two touchdowns, and a passer rating of 116.0. WR Deebo Samuel hauled in



49ers players say Jimmy Garoppolo looks 'real good' and has improved since last week

Jimmy Garoppolo's playing status against the Los Angeles Rams this week probably won't be known until gameday, but it sounds like he's been making visible strides in practice, based on what his teammates said Thursday. Garoppolo sat out last week's win over the Houston Texans in favor of rookie Trey Lance due to a thumb injury that may or may not require surgery in the offseason, but he's been back at practice this week as the 49ers prepare for their season finale in Los Angeles (4:25 p.m. ET/1:25 p.m. PT, FOX). He was naturally a popular topic of conversation during post-practice media sessions on Thursday, with reporters wanting to know the players'



49ers' Trey Lance discusses improvement since last week, preparations for possible start against Rams

If Trey Lance has to start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers this week in their pressure-packed showdown against the Los Angeles Rams, he'll at least have a good idea what he's getting into, along with a little more improvement under his belt since his previous start. Lance's status for Sunday's game in Los Angeles (4:25 p.m. ET/1:25 p.m. PT, FOX) remains up in the air due to the lingering uncertainty surrounding Jimmy Garoppolo, who was sidelined in favor of Lance against the Houston Texans last week due to a thumb injury. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has yet to announce who will start the game at quarterback, but Lance has been staying ready this week, in part, by splitting reps with Garoppolo after getting all of the first-team reps last week.
