Could the 49ers have been looking for their quarterback of the future on Saturday?

San Francisco 49ers vice president of player personnel Adam Peters was in attendance for Saturday’s UCLA vs. Stanford game on Saturday. Peters was one of seven people listed as attending for the 49ers, though Nick Wagoner of ESPN was unsure if that many were actually there representing the team.

Peters is the team’s top personnel guy at this point. He was brought in to provide a veteran executive presence to assist John Lynch, who crossed over from the broadcast booth after a lengthy career on the field. Peters will see hundreds of players each year, but him being present to presumably see UCLA Josh Rosen is a big deal.

Rosen completed 40 of 60 passes for 480 yards with three touchdowns and a pair of interceptions in the Bruins’ loss to the Cardinal, 58-34. It wasn’t a great performance from him, another such game after he struggled in a Week 3 loss to Memphis.

Fooch took a look at the latest college quarterback power rankings on Friday, and noted that Rosen dropped down to No. 4 on their list after three games. It’s possible Rosen will drop even further after his performance against Stanford, a team he’s never beaten in three career meetings.

This is, of course, important to 49ers fans because the 49ers could be looking at spending a high draft pick on a quarterback in the near future. Brian Hoyer just had his best game as a 49er, but it wasn’t an incredible performance by any means. C.J. Beathard is a longshot at best, so the 49ers could reasonably be looking at Rosen or one of the other top names — Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Mason Rudolph and other potential first-rounders.
