Silver: Jared Goff not scheduled to visit 49ers this week

Apr 11, 2016 at 1:49 PM--


It had been thought that both Cal QB Jared Goff and North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz, predicted to be the top two quarterbacks taken in the NFL Draft later this month, would be visiting with the San Francisco 49ers this week. That may not be the case for Goff, per Mike Silver of NFL Network.


It had been thought that Goff would take part in the 49ers' local pro day on Wednesday, with Wentz also visiting in Santa Clara this week. The 49ers currently hold the seventh overall selection in the draft.

A number of the 49ers' coaching staff was in attendance to watch Goff at his pro day last month. They included head coach Chip Kelly, quarterbacks coach Ryan Day, receivers coach Bob Bicknell, running backs coach Tom Rathman, and assistant offensive line coach Eric Wolford.

Goff finished his pro day 61 of 69 with two drops and capped the session with a 40-yard pass completion. Following the session, Goff even threw some wet footballs after Cleveland Browns quarterback coach Pep Hamilton dowsed some with water. The Browns are reportedly very interested in Goff.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Goff to Matt Ryan, had the following to say within his scouting report:

While Goff is a little leaner in the lower body than teams might like, he has good size, an NFL arm, advanced pocket mobility and the field demeanor of a franchise quarterback. His accuracy and decision making will suffer from occasional lapses, but he displays the tools to become a good starting quarterback with time.

Quarterbacks currently on the 49ers' roster include Colin Kaepernick, Blaine Gabbert, Dylan Thompson, and Thad Lewis.

49ers injury news: George Kittle texts Mike Silver, says he is 'good to go' vs. Jets

Fans were awaiting word on the status of San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle, who appeared to suffer a leg injury before halftime during Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Kittle ended up playing in the second half but was held without a catch after his injury. It sounds like Kittle, at least in his mind, plans to play in Sunday's road game against the New York Jets as the 49ers try to get into the win column. "Good to go," Kittle texted Mike Silver of NFL Network. "On to New York!" That's some positive news, assuming the 49ers medical and coaching staffs feel the same way. Fans probably remember that Kittle suffered

Week 1 Silver Linings: We'll Be Alright, Faithful

Almost everything went wrong for the 49ers today, but they only lost by four points. Four. Give credit to the Cardinals, but you could argue that they played their best ball on the "road" and barely scratched out a win. If Jimmy Garoppolo hits Kendrick Bourne's hands rather than Patrick Peterson's helmet, I wouldn't be writing this right now. Let's pump the brakes on the criticism, take a step back, and look at the game objectively. I'm usually the pessimistic type, but there are a lot of reasons to be optimistic after this tough loss. Here are a few: 1. Kendrick Bourne KB's stat line will not wow you (2 Rec, 34 yards), but the route he ran to free himself in the 4th quarter summarizes his growth perfectly.

The 49ers are continuing to show interest in adding veteran pass rusher Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah, according to a Sunday morning report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. Ansah, 31, was brought in by the 49ers in early August for a COVID-19 test and a physical but did not sign a contract. Rapoport says the 49ers plan on bringing him again for a visit and another COVID-19 test today, which shows he still remains on the team's radar. Help on the way for the
