49ers, Giants showing interest in OT Eugene Monroe

Both the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants are reportedly showing "preliminary interest" in OT Eugene Monroe, per Josina Anderson of ESPN. Monroe was released by the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday.


Anderson states that Monroe's preference is to stay at left tackle, with both the 49ers and Giants needing help at right tackle. The 49ers have had Erik Pears practicing at right tackle for a lot of the the team's offseason program.



The Ravens released Monroe when a trade with the New York Giants fell through on Wednesday. Baltimore found a replacement for Monroe when they used their first-round draft pick on Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley.

Monroe, who is listed at 6-5 and 300 pounds, appeared in just six games in 2015 as he recovered from a concussion and shoulder injury. During his eight-year career, Monroe has appeared in all 16 games just once. That was in 2012. Although, he likely would have done so again in 2013 if he didn't miss his first game with the Ravens following a trade from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Prior to 2014, Monroe never missed more than one game in a season.

Monroe was drafted out of Virginia with the eighth over selection in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Jaguars.

You've undoubtedly heard this story before—a narrative tracing the path from the San Francisco 49ers' disinterest in drafting a quarterback in 2017 to their selection of quarterback Brock Purdy in 2022 with the last overall pick. ESPN's Adam Schefter recently revisited this tale, though it's one that's been shared numerous times. During a recent conversation on the "Pardon My Take" podcast, Schefter discussed the 49ers' lack of interest in adding a rookie quarterback in 2017, including future Hall of Famer Patrick Mahomes, despite initially owning the No. 2 overall pick. What led the 49ers to avoid thoroughly evaluating quarterbacks from that draft class? Head coach Kyle Shanahan believed the team could secure Kirk Cousins the following offseason. However,

It's been a quiet couple of weeks for the San Francisco 49ers. Other than firing defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, and that little Super Bowl thing, there hasn't been much going on.

By David Bonilla

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
