Shortly after the San Francisco 49ers pulled off the blockbuster trade for the No. 3 pick, draft rumors strongly indicated Mac Jones would be their selection. With the 2021 NFL Draft closing in, it seems another quarterback might be on Kyle Shanahan’s mind.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there wasn’t an NFL Scouting Combine this year and clubs aren’t allowed to host private workouts with top prospects. Instead, many of this year’s top quarterbacks are holding a second Pro Day to show off their skills for interested coaches and general managers.
After getting a first-hand look at Justin Fields during his second workout last week, the 49ers are now turning their attention to Trey Lance. While attending a Pro Day is somewhat noteworthy, San Francsico’s involvement in Lance’s scripted workout is particularly interesting.
