Lauletta still drew a crowd, though, including a large group of reporters who cover the New England Patriots.

Garoppolo measured in at 6’2 1/4, 226 pounds at the 2014 Combine. Cedric Ogbuehi Authentic Jersey Lauletta came in at 6’2, 5/8, 221 pounds on Thursday. Both found success as leaders of FCS squads. Garoppolo was the MVP of the East-West Shrine Game. Lauletta was MVP of the Senior Bowl.

I definitely see some similarities, Lauletta said of Garoppolo. He’s obviously an FCS guy. He has quick feet. He’s accurate. He’s an outstanding leader from the soundbites I’ve seen. As a quarterback, you have to be a great communicator, and Jimmy is a great communicator. It just seems like he has a mojo to him, a little bit of a swagger to him, that is infectious. He’s a player I’d love to model my game around.

Every team would love to find the next Garoppolo. The jury is still out if he’s actually worth $27.5 million per year, but the 49ers probably have a star on their hands. Who wouldn’t want that?

Even teams with an entrenched starter at quarterback are usually on the lookout for a young passer they can groom for the future.
