NFL Combine 2015: 49ers' Trent Baalke to speak Wednesday, Jim Tomsula on Thursday

New, comments

Trent Baalke and Jim Tomsula will host press conferences at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Scouting Combine is officially underway today, though there won't be much of substance to watch when it comes to the actual NFL Draft prospects until Friday, when the first group -- consisting of special teamers, offensive linemen and tight ends -- has their on-field workouts and drills.

But there will be plenty to watch on Wednesday and Thursday when it comes to press conferences, as most teams will have their head coach and general manager available for the media. 49ers general manager Trent Baalke is one of the first general managers available, as he will be speaking at 10:45 a.m. ET on Wednesday, the fourth general manager to speak.

Then, head coach Jim Tomsula will have his first press conference not hosted by the 49ers at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, the ninth person to speak on the day. It should be ... interesting, to say the least. The NFL Network will be carrying coverage of the press conferences live, though I'm not sure if their coverage starts early enough to get the 49ers' conferences -- at any rate, there should be a stream on, which we will have here.

Typically, you can expect a range of questions related to the NFL Draft and free agency, so I imagine Baalke will get plenty of questions about the draft philosophy, Michael Crabtree and Frank Gore. But I'd be shocked if Baalke and Tomsula didn't get questions about the ongoing drama surrounding all the news related to Jim Harbaugh and Adam Gase right now.
