According to Bill Williamson of ESPN.com, San Jose State QB David Fales is considered a potential fit for the San Francisco 49ers.
Fales was in attendance for the 49ers’ pro day workout for local prospects on Friday. HC Jim Harbaugh told reporters that he believes Fales is a top-five quarterback in this year’s draft class.
Even 49ers GM Trent Baalke seemed to be impressed with Fales.
“I like a lot of things about David. He’s very composed. He’s a very smart football player,” Baalke said. “You look at him statistically, he’s won a lot of games. He won a shootout at Fresno which I happened to be at. He’s got good arm talent. He can make all the throws. He’s very accurate, especially in the short to intermediate game. There’s a lot to like about him.”
Harbaugh has spent a lot of time working with quarterback prospects this offseason, so it wouldn’t be shocking in the least to see them come away with one during the middle rounds of this year’s draft.
While Harbaugh is apparently pretty high on Fales, the consensus for a few months now has been that he is likely a late-round prospect.
