The San Francisco 49ers will likely consider adding a quarterback in the mid rounds of the draft.
Still, this is a deep draft, and the 49ers have a surplus of picks. And coach Jim Harbaugh is a huge fan of young quarterbacks. The 49ers looked at several last season. Here is a look at some of the quarterbacks who could attract interest in the mid-rounds:
Tajh Boyd, Clemson: Once considered a top-10 pick, Boyd could be tempting if he is available late in the third round.
David Fales, San Jose State: The local kid has the look of becoming a competent backup.
Jimmy Garoppolo, Eastern Illinois: He dominated at a low level. Could be worth a shot.
AJ McCarron, Alabama: He’s smart and a winner. Those are two wonderful quarterback traits.
Aaron Murray, Georgia: coming of an injury. Could be an interesting guy to stash.
Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech: He has all the tools. Could be worth developing.
