The San Francisco 49ers do not have a legitimate starting quarterback option for the long term and hold the second overall pick in this month’s NFL Draft. One potential selection that could change that situation for the 49ers is North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky.

According to Adam Schefter of, a 49ers contingent that included head coach Kyle Shanahan and quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarillo worked out Trubisky at the University of North Carolina last week.

Whether Trubisky is good enough to warrant the second overall pick in the draft is up for debate, but quarterbacks almost always get overdrafted by teams in desperate need of quarterback help. The 49ers are one of several teams looking for potential upgrades and solutions to their quarterback problems.

Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley aren’t the future in the Bay Area. The 49ers know this as well and will have to find a viable replacement for Shanahan’s tenure in San Francisco to truly succeed.

Whether Trubisky with the second overall pick is their attempt at a solution won’t be known until later this month.

  1. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a QB drafted in the top 5. Lattimore has bad hammies, Jonathan Allen has questionable shoulders, and Hooker is coming off of two major surgeries. Even Garrett has taken a tumble as people watch his tape against the best opponents.

    If you think that Trubisky will be an elite QB, take him at #2. No one is going to care where you drafted him if you’re right. If that pushes one of Fournette or Adams to the Bears, all the better.

  2. This is one part real interest, one part due diligence, and one part trying to influence the Browns into taking Trubinsky with the first pick leaving Garrett for them If they pull that off, then they made the right choice in giving the GM job to Lynch
