It shouldn’t come as a surprise that 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan will attend Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields’ second pro day this Wednesday and North Dakota State QB Trey Lance’s next Monday. Ian Rapoport tweeted, “while there appears to be a leader in the clubhouse at No. 3, they’ll use all available time to make a final call.”
San Francisco won’t be the only team on-hand to see Fields, per Albert Breer. The New England Patriots will be in attendance, too. During both players’ first pro day, their throwing coaches scripted the workout. This time, both the Niners and the Pats will run the throwing session.
Breer added that Ohio State would only allow three people from each team. I wonder if Adam Peters would join Shanahan and Lynch this time around. It wouldn’t be surprising to see offensive coordinator Mike McDaniels get a firsthand look at San Francisco’s potential draft pick.
If New England will be there to watch Fields, that means the former Ohio State quarterback won’t last long in the draft. The Patriots have been rumored as a team that could trade up with Atlanta at No. 4, so their interest in Fields makes sense.
We’ll keep an eye out to see which other teams attend Lance’s pro day, as it could give us some insight as to who is keeping an eye on Lance other than San Francisco.
