Cal QB Jared Goff is visiting the 49ers today

Apr 18, 2016 at 10:05 AM--


Today, California QB Jared Goff will finally be paying a visit to the San Francisco 49ers' headquarters in Santa Clara, according to CSN Bay Area.

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 visit with the 49ers last week, perhaps with Goff taking part in the team's local pro day. However, both visits were reportedly rescheduled.

A number of the 49ers' coaching staff were 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, who own the second overall pick in the draft, are reportedly very interested in Goff and the Los Angeles Rams, who now own the first overall pick following a trade last week with the Tennessee Titans, are a very likely candidate to select him as well. The 49ers currently own the seventh overall selection.

At the NFL Scouting Combine in February, the 6-foot-4 and 215-pound Goff had a 40-time of 4.82 seconds, a vertical jump of 27 inches, a broad jump of 110 inches, and completed the three cone drill in 7.17 seconds. Other measurables for Goff include an arm length of 32 3/4 inches and hands that measure 9 inches. Although, the hand measurement came in slightly larger at his pro day.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Goff to Matt Ryan, had the following to say in 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.

The 49ers currently have four quarterbacks on the roster. They are Colin Kaepernick, Blaine Gabbert, Dylan Thompson and Thad Lewis.

The impact John Lynch believes Drake Jackson will have on the 49ers defense

The San Francisco 49ers' first selection of the 2022 NFL Draft didn't come until day two on Friday. Thanks to last year's trade package to move up to select quarterback Trey Lance, the team lacked a first-round pick. When the Niners' first selection came around, at No. 61 overall, the team again opted to bolster its defensive line, selecting former USC defensive end Drake Jackson. San Francisco has now used its first selection on a defensive lineman in six of the past eight drafts. The 49ers have focused a lot on keeping its defensive line well-stocked with talent, believing that making the pass rush a top priority will help every other position on defense. San Francisco added veteran pass rusher Dee Ford in 2019, just before drafting Nick Bosa,

The NFL will release the entire 2022 schedule on May 12. Three days earlier, the matchups and dates of select games will be revealed. One of those will likely be the NFL kickoff game—the first game that kicks off the 272-game slate of matchups. Typically, the reigning Super Bowl champions will host that first game of the season. That means some team will need to travel to SoFi Stadium to try to hand the Los Angeles Rams an 0-1 start. Steve Smith Sr. of NFL Media is hoping the visiting team is the San Francisco 49ers. It's certainly a possibility. However, the Rams are also scheduled to host the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Las Vegas Raiders, and Seattle Seahawks.
