Cal RB Daniel Lasco’s stock on the rise

Apr 26, 2016 at 7:27 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers have been among those showing interest in former California RB Daniel Lasco. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the former Golden Bear's stock may be rising after private workouts with the Philadelphia Eagles, New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots.

While Wilson states that Lasco participated in the local pro days of the Houston Texans, Oakland Raiders and 49ers, he was not on the 67 player attendee list for San Francisco's local pro day. However, it was reported on March 31 that he had a private workout with the team. Lasco was also seen working with 49ers running backs coach Tom Rathman at Cal's pro day on March 18.

At the NFL Scouting Combine in February, the 6-foot and 209-pound Lasco had a 40-time of 4.46 seconds, a vertical jump of 41.5 inches, a broad jump of 135 inches, completed the three cone drill in 7.22 seconds, had 23 reps in the bench press, a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.26 seconds, and a 60-yard shuttle time of 11.31 seconds. Other measurables for Lasco include an arm length of 32 inches and hands that measure 9 1/8 inches.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media had the following to say in his scouting report:

One­-year wonder who put himself on the map with a strong, overall performance in 2014 but suffered through a hip injury in 2015 and was unimpressive when he played. Lasco has some positive physical traits and might post some interesting combine numbers, but his lack of vision and inability to run with consistent physicality will be challenges when it comes to making an NFL roster.

The analysts who were clamoring for backup quarterback Trey Lance no longer believe the 49ers are a playoff-caliber team. When San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans was exposed in Week 3, the young coordinator's incompetence was far from a hot topic of conversation amongst members of the national sports media -- if it was even discussed at all. After months of fawning over rookie quarterback Trey Lance, the media finally got its wish in Week 4, as the latest future of the 49ers' franchise played the entire second half of the Niners' loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The rookie certainly looked the part during the team's defeat, simply proving what was obvious all along: He's not ready; but who expected him to be? Although analysts
