Mel Kiper mock draft 2017: Third version similar to Todd McShay’s latest

Mel Kiper mock draft 2017: Third version similar to Todd McShay’s latest

Only two QBs in the first round, and a defensive player to the 49ers that we are seeing more regularly. ESPN draft analysts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay are converging in their 2017 NFL mock drafts when it comes to the San Francisco 49ers. McShay’s latest mock draft, a week ago, had the 49ers drafting Stanford defensive end Solomon Thomas. Mel Kiper released his latest 2017 NFL mock draft, and he has the 49ers also drafting Thomas. As with McShay, Kiper moved away from the quarterback position due to the signings of Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley. He recognizes the QB need but said the urgency...

Donald Trump chides Colin Kaepernick again at rally

Donald Trump might have other concerns than what he reads online about Colin Kaepernick. Nevertheless, he brought up Kaepernick during a rally recently in Kentucky. During the campaign, Trump criticized Kaepernick for failing to stand for the national anthem. In the video above, you can see what Trump said about the 49ers free agent quarterback. Kaepernick opted out of his deal earlier this month and is still a free agent. Other quarterbacks such as Mike Glennon (Bears), Brian Hoyer (49ers), and Matt Barkley (49ers) have signed despite having worse careers statistically than Kaepernick....

Film breakdown: The Hoyer effect

Film breakdown: The Hoyer effect

We take a look at Brian Hoyer’s best and worst performances statistically from 2014 under then OC Kyle Shanahan As we’ve seen over the past couple weeks, Kyle Shanahan is getting the band back together. Several of this year’s free agent signings played for the 49ers new head coach at some point in the past few years. Enter Brian Hoyer, who last played for Shanahan in 2014. His numbers that year were quite pedestrian in the 14 games he played. He completed 55.3 percent of his passes for 3,326 yards 7.6 yards per pass attempt, 12 Touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. He ended the 2014...

49ers’ brass goes on the road in search of a QB

General manager John Lynch will lead a group to get an up-close look at the top quarterback draft prospects: Lynch, vice president of player personnel Adam Peters, senior personnel executive Martin Mayhew and quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello will attend pro days at North Carolina (Tuesday) and Notre Dame (Thursday). The 49ers, whose quarterback depth chart consists of Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley, will use at least one of their 10 draft picks on a quarterback. Shanahan met with Trubisky, Watson and Kizer at the combine and he’ll visit with them again if they are among the 30 prospects...

49ers’ Lynch: Kaepernick nearly signed with another team last week

The free-agent market for Colin Kaepenrick has seemingly been nonexistent, but general manager John Lynch said today that the 49ers quarterback nearly signed with another team last week. Lynch, speaking on KNBR, said Kaepernick was close to signing a deal around the time the 49ers added quarterback Matt Barkley on March 10, the second day of free agency. Lynch said the 49ers hadn’t officially shut the door on re-signing Kaepernick, but acknowledged the signings of Barkley and Brian Hoyer made such a scenario unlikely.

Brian Hoyer talked about helping 49ers players acclimate to Kyle Shanahan system

Brian Hoyer talked about helping 49ers players acclimate to Kyle Shanahan system

The San Francisco 49ers have signed several players with connections to Kyle Shanahan and also the Seattle Seahawks defense. It makes sense. The San Francisco 49ers have been plenty active over the past month, signing 14 free agents, trading for a center, and re-signing two of their own free agents. The overhaul has been huge, but there has been a reason beyond just change for change’s sake. One common refrain in free agency has been the addition of players with some kind of connection to what the 49ers are doing. Players like Brian Hoyer, Pierre Garcon, and others know some aspect of...

49ers Mailbag: Who joins QBs Hoyer and Barkley, and when?

On the first two days of the new league year, the 49ers last week went from experiencing the liberating feeling of no quarterbacks on the roster to signing Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley.With all due respect to Hoyer, whom the 49ers had targeted as their top quarterback on the free-agent market, he is not expected to be the long-term answer.

Todd McShay mock draft 3.0: Quarterbacks drop out of the top ten

Todd McShay mock draft 3.0: Quarterbacks drop out of the top ten

The latest 2017 NFL mock draft from Todd McShay sees quarterbacks slip-sliding away. Much of NFL Draft media has thought for the past two months that the San Francisco 49ers are going to draft a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick. We saw plenty of folks looking at other picks, but the most popular pick had been quarterback, with North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky topping the list. Who knew that signing Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley would be what changed people’s minds! We are seeing more media considering the top defensive options available instead of quarterback. The latest to join...

Golden Nuggets: Brian Hoyer and The QBs

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet The San Francisco 49ers were big buyers in the 1st days of free agency last week. They had around $100 million in cap space at the beginning of free agency and they did not hesitate to use that money immediately. Big money deals were given to WR Pierre Garcon and FB Kyle Juszczyk. The 49ers also addressed their lack of QBs. They had no QBs on the roster, but were able to add 2 in Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley. The latest free agent to visit was OL Bryon Bell, who missed...

Brian Hoyer contract incentives are back-loaded

Brian Hoyer contract incentives are back-loaded

The 49ers have a deal with Brian Hoyer that seems to work well for both sides. The San Francisco 49ers signed Brian Hoyer to a two-year contract last week, and some clarity is arriving on what the deal entails. We don’t have the full numbers, but Ben Volin has a couple extra details. When the deal was first signed, Jason La Canfora reported it was two years, $12 million with $10 million fully guaranteed, and a chance for the total package to climb to $18 million. Adam Caplan followed up, reporting the incentives were 2,500 passing yards and 20 touchdowns. Volin is now reporting the full...

So many possibilities for how 49ers plan to use Juszczyk

Quarterback Brian Hoyer already has one luxury he never enjoyed during his one season together with Kyle Shanahan with the Cleveland Browns in 2014.The 49ers made Kyle Juszczyk the highest-paid fullback in the NFL last week. Truth be told, there is not a lot of competition for that honor. And there were certainly no candidates in Cleveland when Hoyer was there and Shanahan was the offensive coordinator.

Golden Nuggets: Nothing important happened yesterday

A compilation of 49ers links from around the web. Monday, March 13th, 2017 edition. Overlooking the improper use of the supposed quotation in the title, nothing important actually happened yesterday - nearly everything was quiet on, well, every front. Despite another poorly chosen military idiom to carry on an equally poorly chosen theme with no purpose, the point remains that the 49ers organization made no moves that made the news. A handful of conferences and interviews were held, with the highlights being Brian Hoyer being glad to reunite with Shanahan, and John Lynch musing that being a...
