The San Francisco 49ers sought out Frank Gore's advice before they selected Trey Lance with the third overall pick last week.

They had previously asked Gore to watch film on Lance.

"You don't give up all that for a pocket passer," Gore told's Jim Trotter. "You don't give up all that and still need to call a perfect play for a guy. This guy can make plays even when the call ain't perfect. He has a chance to be special in that offense."
