The San Francisco 49ers are expected to add at least one more rookie quarterback to the training camp mix as league sources indicate they will sign former Ole Miss Rebel and Oregon Ducks QB Jeremiah Masoli. The San Francisco native started his college career at City College of San Francisco before transferring to Oregon. In 2009 he led the Ducks explosive offensive attack with a combined 2,815 total yards of offense and 28 total touchdowns.
Unfortunately for Masoli he was unable to stay out of trouble as he pled guilty to burglary and was suspended for the entire 2010 season. Following the suspension he was cited in June 2010 for marijuana possession and coach Chip Kelly quickly decided to dismiss him from the team. Masoli transferred to Ole Miss where he threw for 2,039 yards with 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
The 49ers have one project QB in Colin Kaepernick and find themselves possibly in the mix for veteran QB Matt Hasselbeck. Masoli will get some snaps in training camp, but it would be surprising to see him get enough to end up anywhere but the practice squad at best. It's also entirely possible the team considers trying to convert him away from quarterback as he brings fantastic athleticism but not much in the way of passing abilities.
