49ers’ John Lynch, Chris Foerster on hand to scout Washington Huskies prospects

San Francisco 49ers GM John Lynch and Offensive Line coach Chris Foerster were in Seattle on Saturday scouting prospects of the Washington Huskies. While Washington has multiple talented draft prospects, the fact that Foerster was accompanying Lynch is notable considering Washington has two offensive linemen who are getting a lot of attention—Troy Fautanu and Roger Rosengarten.


Fautanu is considered one of the top offensive linemen in the draft, but he isn't likely to be available when the 49ers pick at 31. Would Lynch consider trading up? The 49ers need to address the offensive line, and although a rookie may not be able to come in and grab a starting spot, San Francisco still needs to upgrade its depth. The 49ers must also begin preparing for the eventual retirement of future Hall of Fame tackle, Trent Williams.

Rosengarten is also intriguing to the 49ers because of his experience and background. His high school football coach was Ed McCaffrey, who won three Super Bowls with Mike Shanahan in San Francisco and Denver. So Rosengarten should be well-versed in Kyle Shanahan's zone-based scheme. As a bonus, he is the fastest offensive lineman in this year's draft. He may be an excellent fit for Shanahan's offense.

And if that wasn't enough, former 49ers tackle Joe Staley trains Rosengarten. So there are plenty of connections between Rosengarten and the 49ers. And it sounds as though Lynch and Foerster got a good look at him.


The 2024 NFL draft will be held in Detroit, Michigan on April 25–27. The 49ers have a first-round pick in the draft for the first since 2021 when they drafted QB Trey Lance third overall.

49ers won't play international game during 2024 NFL season

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers escaped having to play an international game for another season. The Bay Area team won't be required to travel overseas or compete in Mexico during the 2024 season. The NFL has released its lineup of international games, and the 49ers aren't among the teams scheduled for long-distance journeys. San Francisco's last international game was in 2022, where they triumphed over the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico. Their prior overseas venture was to London in 2013, when they clinched a victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium. There was a chance that the 49ers might return to the United Kingdom for the 2024 NFL season. The Minnesota Vikings will host a team at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2024, and the 49ers are on their home

Does 49ers QB Brock Purdy need Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel for success?

By David Bonilla
May 15

Rumors circulated before and during the 2024 NFL Draft about the possibility of the San Francisco 49ers losing one of their top two wide receivers—Brandon Aiyuk or Deebo Samuel. Such a scenario could have significantly impacted the team's success in the upcoming season and posed a potential blow for quarterback Brock Purdy, who has thrived alongside the dynamic duo on the field. However, none of these speculations came to fruition. Both Aiyuk and Samuel remain on the roster, at least for another season, though their future beyond that remains uncertain. Aiyuk is seeking a contract extension that would position him among the highest-paid wide receivers in the NFL. At the same time, Samuel already commands a significant salary following a deal rework in 2022.
