Apr 11, 2016 at 6:32 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers were one of numerous teams that held a private workout for San Diego State OT Darrell Greene, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. Greene also had workouts for the Houston Texans, Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles, and Indianapolis Colts. Greene also had visits with the Minnesota Vikings and San Diego Chargers.


During the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-3 and 321-pound Greene recorded a 40-time of 5.2 seconds and a broad jump of 98 inches. He started 25 straight games at right guard for the Aztecs heading into the 2015 season, but was suspended for six games in 2015 after testing positive for marijuana. He returned and started for San Diego State's final seven games.

During his pro day, he had a vertical jump of 22.5 inches and a broad jump of 99 inches.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compared Greene to Shaq Mason, had the following to say in his scouting report:

Stocky, prototypical right guard with the power to unclog running lanes and help a rushing attack looking to dominate with the physical over the finesse. Greene lacks the length NFL teams usually look for but his tremendous power could be an off­set. His NCAA suspension for drugs will be heavily vetted before teams decide to pull the trigger on Greene, but the power and NFL ability is there.

Jason Verrett enjoyed dipping his toes into the free-agency waters.

"[Free agency] was a good experience," Verrett told reporters via Zoom on Monday. "It always feels good to be wanted, but my heart was always with San Fran. I love the comradely we've got with the team, the coaches, staff, training staff, the amazing fans, the whole nine yards. I was happy that we [were] able to get a deal done, and I'm just excited to see what

The San Francisco 49ers knew a change was needed immediately after the 2020 season ended. At one point, the team had Super Bowl aspirations. The team ended up finishing with just six wins. Much of that had to do with the unprecedented number of injuries the roster endured. Much of that had to do with the unavailability of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, the decision to draft a rookie quarterback came soon after the season's conclusion. That's when coaches and front office personnel started doing extensive homework on the incoming rookie quarterbacks. "(Head coach Kyle) Shanahan, (GM John) Lynch, assistant GM Adam
