Kyle Shanahan on Monday said he met with North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky last week and that the 49ers would receive a visit from another top passer in the upcoming draft, Clemson’s Deshaun Watson, on Tuesday.
The visit with Trubisky in Chapel Hill, N.C. included a workout with Trubisky — which Shanahan directed — and his favorite receiver while at UNC, Ryan Switzer. He caught 96 passes for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns last year for the Tar Heels and projects as a slot receiver in the NFL.
News of the session first was reported by Bleacher Report. The Bills worked out Trubisky on Sunday.
The 49ers previously shared a workout of Watson with the Jets, although Shanahan was not on hand for that session. Watson, Trubisky, Notre Dame’s DeShone Kizer and Texas Tech’s Patrick Mahomes all met with the 49ers at the scouting combine, and general manager John Lynch attended Trubisky’s, Kizer’s and Mahomes’ pro-day sessions. Lynch had dinner with Kizer before Notre Dame’s pro day.
The 49ers pick No. 2 overall in this month’s draft. They have two quarterbacks — Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley — on the roster now but likely will bring four to training camp.
