Report: 49ers’ To Hold Private Workout With Jared Goff, Just Like Team Did With Colin Kaepernick

According to Fox Sports, the San Francisco 49ers will hold a private workout for local product QB Jared Goff (Cal) later this week. The No. 1 ranked quarterback on my big board will now get a second chance to showcase his talent in front of the 49ers scouts. On Mar. 18, Goff displayed his accuracy, poise, and arm strength during his pro day as 49ers HC Chip Kelly and QBC Ryan Day looked on. Now, Goff will get a closer look as 49ers GM Trent Baalke should be in attendance this time around.

The last time the 49ers were in the market for a quarterback was back in 2012 when they drafted QB Colin Kaepernick. That year they held a private workout out for Kaepernick before selecting him in the second-round.

In 2014, the 49ers needed a quality backup to Kaepernick, and as a result conducted a private workout with QB Jimmy Garoppolo. That year they had the opportunity to draft Garoppolo with the No. 61 pick but opted to trade down with the Jacksonville Jaguars instead. The 49ers gave up the pick and instead received the Jaguars third-round pick (No. 70) who ended up being C Marcus Martin and a fifth-round pick (No. 150) that turned out to be OLB Aaron Lynch.

The New England Patriots swooped up on Garoppolo’s services one pick later at No. 62. However, Goff isn’t the only quarterback getting a second look by the 49ers brass as they have scheduled private workouts with QB Carson Wentz (North Dakota St.) and QB Connor Cook (Michigan St.).
