Will John Lynch find his quarterback this offseason? (Jonathan Bachman / Associated Press)

The 49ers rebuild figures to be a lengthy one as San Francisco has one of the worst rosters in football. New Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch will be actively pursuing options at the quarterback position. Lynch gave us some insight into how he might go about searching for his quarterback.

“The answer for us is that Kyle and I are going to get together, and we’ve already discussed it, but we’re going to get together and find out exactly what he’s looking for in a quarterback,” Lynch told KNBR. “And then we’re going to evaluate the guys we have, we’re going to evaluate the draft, and we’re going to look hard at free agency, trades, whatever we need to do to get a guy. And it may not be this year. It may be that we draft and develop. We’re looking at every scenario, but we’re both big believers, and I don’t think this is anything revolutionary. Everyone knows how important that position is, but we certainly place a huge emphasis on it and we’re going to work hard to get that right.”

Shanahan loves mobile quarterbacks which makes Deshaun Watson an interesting fit. The 49ers hold the 2nd overall pick in the 2017 Draft and could pull the trigger on a signal caller at that spot.
