San Francisco 49ers Using Virtual Reality
NFL’s San Francisco 49ers is currently figuring out whose going to be their starting quarterback when the new season begins. They have spent a lot of time analyzing their different options. Their starting quarterback could end up being Blaine Gabbert or Colin Kapernick, but there’s a good chance the team is going to draft a rookie quarterback as well.
Private Workouts with Quarterbacks
They have held at least 4 private workouts and at least 3 host visits with different quarterbacks they’re considering drafting. The potential quarterbacks they’ve met with include Jared Goff, Connor Cook, Carson Wentz, Joe Licata and Kevin Hogan. They’ve also met with Dak Prescott, Vernon Adams and Paxton Lynch.
Used VR with Connor Cook
As they analyze who their next quarterback should be, they’re using a new unique way to do this. Michigan State’s quarterback (Connor Cook), said that he wore a VR headset during their meeting with the 49ers and he noted that out of the seven teams he visited, the 49ers were the only team that used virtual reality.
And it’s probably safe to say that Connor Cook wasn’t the only quarterback the 49ers used virtual reality with. Of course, the team will use other methods of analyzing as well, but clearly they think virtual reality is one of the technologies that needs to be utilized in order to properly assess their potential new quarterback.
