The 49ers were reportedly one of three teams to meet Wednesday with Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook at his pro day.
The 49ers and Los Angeles Rams met with Cook before his workout in East Lansing, Michigan. The Cleveland Browns met with Cook following his pro day, ESPN reported.
Steve Rubio, the 49ers' midlands regional scout, and linebackers coach Jason Tarver were scheduled to attend the Michigan State workout, CSNBayArea.com learned.
The 49ers own the No. 7 overall pick in the draft, but it is unlikely Cook will be drafted in the first half of the first round. However, Cook could become an option for the 49ers with a later pick.
The 49ers’ second-round pick is at No. 37 overall. Cook is widely considered one of the top three or four quarterbacks in the draft behind Jared Goff (Cal) and Carson Wentz (North Dakota State). Either Paxton Lynch (Memphis) or Cook is likely to be the third quarterback selected in the NFL draft, which is set for April 28-30.
Cook was a three-year starter for Michigan State. He finished his college career with a 57.5 completion percentage with 71 touchdowns and 22 interceptions while throwing for 9,194 yards.
