As in every year, the San Francisco 49ers will be hosting a number of draft eligible prospects at their local pro day. However, this year is a little different from year’s past, because former 49ers great QB Joe Montana’s son will be joining the festivities. QB Nate Montana will be showcasing his talent in front of 49ers coaches, as he tries to catch on with an NFL team. The younger Montana was eligible to attend the local pro day, since he played his high school ball at famed De La Salle in Concord, California.
Nate played primarily as a backup during his first three seasons before catching on with West Virginia Wesleyan, a division II school. In nine games for Wesleyan, Nate averaged 275.6 yards per game, while throwing 19 touchdowns against only seven interceptions.
According to CSNBayarea.com’s Matt Maiocco, Nate has been polishing his quarterback skills at USC, under quarterback guru George Whitfield, Jr.
However, with Nate scheduled to be at the local pro day, there is no way he will make the 49ers roster, as they already have QB Colin Kaepernick, QB Colt McCoy, and QB Scott Tolzien. Nonetheless, look for the media to cover this story like no one’s business as he is “Joe Cool’s” kid.
