Far from a surprise, quarterback Nate Montana, son of 49ers legend Joe, went unselected in this weekend’s draft. The 49ers, though, have decided to throw a bone to the oldest son of the quarterback who helped them win four Super Bowls.

It’s not a contract offer, however, but the team has reportedly sent an invitation to the younger Montana to attend the team’s rookie minicamp in two weeks. It’s only nothing more than a try out, but Montana is hopeful he can turn the opportunity into a contract:

That’s what he and his agent, Marty Magid, are concentrating on now, and their hope is that the 49ers offer him a deal after the minicamp. Magid said other, unnamed teams also have shown interest in Montana and that he was trying to secure an invitation for one of the rookie minicamps being held during the upcoming weekend, May 3-5. “A couple of teams have asked about him,” Magid said. “We’ll find out this week.”

Montana also recently worked out for the Niners during a local pro day for athletes who grew up or played college ball in the area. He was a vagabond in college, playing for four different schools, including his old man’s alma mater Notre Dame and, amusingly, the University of Montana, before winding up at someplace called West Virginia Wesleyan, a D-II school where he finally got a shot to start last season during his senior year. He posted a 51.6 completion percentage.

Montana never started while he was in high school at De Le Salle in Concord. And it was the same for a solid majority of his collegiate career, even while at a JC. Now, he’s milked his name all the way to a shot at the NFL. But we’re willing the wager he sees less NFL camps than he did colleges.

NFC West 2013 Draft Grades

The NFC West is vastly becoming the toughest division in football. The San Francisco 49ers went to the Super Bowl in 2012, Seattle Seahawks were one ill-timed time out call away from facing the 49ers in the NFC Championship game, the Rams did not technically lose a single game against the 49ers in 2012 and the Arizona Cardinals started the season 4-0. Every team got better through...

49ers get South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore

Many people expected the San Francisco 49ers to draft South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore and now they have. The 49ers took Lattimore in the 4th round of this year’s draft.

Did the 49ers recover from 2012′s draft mistakes?

The San Francisco 49ers 2012 NFL draft class were heavily criticized after selecting A.J. Jenkins at the bottom of the first-round and having no rookies start out of the class. The criticism was warranted after Jenkins didn’t catch a single pass, and LaMichael James was lukewarm compared to the running backs they passed on in David Wilson and Doug Martin. However, the 49ers 2013...

49ers Invite Nate Montana, Son of Legend Joe Montana, To Rookie Minicamp

It’s hardly newsworthy when an un-drafted quarterback who floated from college to college and wasn’t even a starter on his high school team gets an invite to a NFL minicamp. Shocking, perhaps, but not newsworthy. Where the story takes a twist and becomes a headline on the internet and local newspapers is when that quarterback is the son of an NFL Legend who led the local team...
