MT: 49ers Host Local Pro Day

Posted by Taylor Price on April 17, 2013 – 9:16 AM

CSNBayArea.com’s Matt Maiocco reported on Tuesday that a son of a 49ers Hall of Famer will visit team headquarters on Wednesday to take part in the team’s local pro day.

Nate Montana would be the player in the report. And yes, he’s the son of you know who.

Montana played as a backup quarterback at three different schools (Pasadena City College, Notre Dame and the University of Montana), before finding a starting role at West Virginia Wesleyan.

Montana started nine games at the NCAA Division II school, completing 51.6 percent of his passes with 19 touchdown passes and seven interceptions. Montana averaged 275.6 passing yards per game. He’s also been preparing for the NFL Draft with quarterback guru George Whitfield Jr.

It’s important to note that several pro day attendees have made their way on to the 49ers practice squad. For example, former Stanford safety Michael Thomas went undrafted, but made the practice squad in 2012 and has been signed to a reserve/future contract with the club. Wednesday’s pro day also marks the last day draft eligible players can visit the team’s Santa Clara headquarters.

49ers.com will cover the team’s annual pro day later in the afternoon and will have a full report on the workout.

More 49ers headlines can be found in today’s Morning Tailgate.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee discussed the 49ers attending a weekend workout for Florida State defensive end Tank Carradine.

Kevin Lynch of SFGate.com wondered if Cal wide receiver Keenan Allen would be available at pick No. 31.

Maiocco also examined the 49ers draft outlook at outside linebacker.

49ers.com continued its offseason strength program coverage by checking in with right guard Alex Boone.

    seahawks aren’t interested in Swain as a player; they just want info and strategy to attack our defense and stop our offense. Not the first time Carroll has picked up 49er to drill them for inside info. the seagulls are always trying to one-up us . . . LOL !

    bottomline here is the seakaks wants to beat us in every which way to can, and i don’t see that happening, cuz’there method of there decision making is an act of desperation, and that to me is not a formula for success, there picking personel, who’s only good for 1 to 2 years run,for a start there GM moved on to another team, there DC took another job in another franchise, so, i feel theres no sense of loyalty in that organization, we will still rule the west….NO DOUBT……..
