Lance throws to ex-49er at pro day, shows off arm strength


The 49ers on Monday finished their travels of looking for their future quarterback ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft when they're on the clock with the No. 3 pick.

Their last stop was Fargo, North Dakota, where they watched dual-threat QB Trey Lance air it out. The 49ers sent coach Kyle Shanahan, general manager John Lynch and QB coach Rich Scangarello to get their eyes on Lance in person. Lance reportedly was scheduled to go through 49ers workouts, just as Justin Fields did.

And the 49ers have to be intrigued with what they saw in Lance. 

The 20-year-old QB showed off both his arm strength and accuracy (against air) with the draft just over a week away.

Interestingly enough, Lance actually threw passes to a former 49ers receiver.

Jordan Matthews still is looking for a NFL home right now, and caught passes from the top draft prospect.

He seemed to enjoy his time hauling in throws from Lance, too.

Will Lance go from throwing to a former 49er to current ones in the near future? 

Come April 29, we'll finally find out.
