  49ers | SF to observe QBs    Mon Apr 12, 10:44 AM

Ohio State QB Justin Fields and North Dakota State QB Trey Lance will have Pro Days in the next seven days, and the San Francisco 49ers will be present at both. Fields will work out Wednesday, April 14, and Lance will host teams Monday, April 19.

Footballguys view: The 49ers moved up to the no.3 overall pick with a quarterback in mind. Some say that's going to be Mac Jones (Alabama) but Fields and Lance are in the conversation as well. In fact, a player like Lance seems to be a perfect fit for a Shanahan offense. Stay tuned.

  49ers | Niners targeting Pooka Williams?    Sun Apr 11, 08:26 PM

Kansas RB Pooka Williams met with the San Francisco 49ers at the Kansas Pro Day, and the 49ers are 'really dialed into Williams,' according to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network.

Footballguys view: Williams is a smaller back with explosive playmaking ability...kind of like Tarik Cohen. He makes defenders look silly and can create space for himself with quickness and agility. Williams is likely to be a late-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft and a scatback at the pro level.

  49ers | Rehab going well for Nick Bosa    Sat Apr 10, 01:18 PM

San Francisco 49ers DE Nick Bosa (knee) impressed with his running and explosiveness in a recent rehab video as he recovers from a torn ACL suffered in the 2020 season. 'If you've listened to some of the Zoom interviews from the 49ers players who have signed over the course of the last couple weeks and free agency, Bosa has represented a lot of optimism for them,' the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Friday, April 9. '... It sounds like Bosa is going to be ready and expected to contribute mightily for this 49ers team.'

  49ers | Mac Jones not a lock for Niners    Wed Apr 7, 09:29 PM

Alabama QB Mac Jones is 'not a given' to be selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, according to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network, and Pauline said the 49ers are 'comfortable' selecting Jones, Ohio State QB Justin Fields or North Dakota State QB Trey Lance.

Footballguys view: We think the move could be for Trey Lance. It could be for Jones of course, but Lance would really fit the Shanahan offense. Jones is super accurate on short-to-intermediate routes and we think a team like the Saints or the Patriots would be a good fit. Only time will tell, and the 49ers know which one they like best.

  49ers | Nate Sudfeld catches on with San Francisco    Wed Apr 7, 05:01 PM

Free-agent QB Nate Sudfeld (Eagles) signed a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers Wednesday, April 7. Financial terms of the contract weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld is a tall pocket passer with a big arm who has been stuck as a reserve in the NFC East with Washington and Philadelphia. He'll work into the rotation as a backup behind Jimmy Garoppolo and whatever rookie (Trey Lance?) the 49ers are going to pick at no.3 overall. Rich Scangarello, the 49ers quarterback coach, worked with Sudfeld in Philadelphia last season.

  49ers | SF wants big return for Jimmy Garoppolo    Fri Apr 2, 03:19 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has received some trade interest this offseason, but the 49ers have indicated that they would want a first-round pick in return for Garoppolo.

Footballguys view: If they want to hold onto Garoppolo, then keep asking for a first-round pick. GM John Lynch has said they believe in Garoppolo for 2021 but need to get better behind him. That's why they made the power move to get up to the no.3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft. It's with that pick they'll draft the QB of the future, and we think that could be Trey Lance (North Dakota State) or Justin Fields (Ohio State) but there are rumors that Mac Jones (Alabama) is an option too.

  49ers | George Kittle's 2022 salary guaranteed    Thu Apr 1, 08:14 AM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle's 2022 salary of $11.45 million became guaranteed Thursday, April 1.

Footballguys view: Kittle is one of the best tight ends in the game so long as he's healthy. The 49ers may have a change at quarterback in 2021, but whoever is throwing the rock is going to target Kittle early and often.

  49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo still part of SF's plans    Mon Mar 29, 03:46 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is still part of the team's plans even though they acquired the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, according to general manager John Lynch.

Footballguys view: Lynch has said this before. Garoppolo is part of their plans, but they need to be ready for the future...and that may happen sooner rather than later. They can win games with Garoppolo but he's hurt too often to trust. That's why they've secured the no.3 overall pick so they can draft their QB of the future. That could be Justin Fields (Ohio State), Trey Lance (North Dakota State) or Mac Jones (Alabama).

  49ers | Mohamed Sanu back with Niners    Sat Mar 27, 12:29 PM

Free agent WR Mohamed Sanu (Lions) on Saturday, March 27, agreed on a one-year contract to sign with the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Sanu knows Kyle Shanahan's offense like the back of his hand...but don't expect too much production from the seasoned veteran. He's there for his experience but is certainly no lock for the 53-man roster.

  49ers | Still committed to Jimmy Garoppolo?    Fri Mar 26, 01:49 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will not be traded and still figures in the team's plans, according to sources, despite the 49ers trading up to acquire the third-overall pick in the 2021 draft Friday, March 26.

Footballguys view: This is possible, but 25 million is a lot for a bridge quarterback that you just showed you don't have confidence in to be your long term answer at quarterback. The Patriots remain the most likely trade destination, but the 49ers could also attempt to keep Garoppolo on a cheaper deal with a lot of his salary converted to incentives.

  49ers | K'Waun Williams terms    Fri Mar 26, 08:18 AM

Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers DB K'Waun Williams received a one-year, $2.378 million deal.

Footballguys view: That is very cheap for an accomplished slot corner. He has been a great contributor to the 49ers defense and they were lucky that he didn't get signed elsewhere.

Footballguys view: There was thought some time ago that perhaps Mullens could develop into a potential starter, but over the course of him playing that proved to be folly. Instead, he's looking more and more like a reserve-level passer who can be a backup in this league. He's rehabbing from elbow surgery and could be re-signed later in the offseason.
