Jimmy Garoppolo is one of the better quarterbacks of this season’s draft, but he is getting overshadowed by names like Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles, Derek Carr and Johnny Manziel.
Garoppolo is making some news today though that may fly under the radar. He has scheduled private workouts with the San Francisco 49ers and with the Houston Texans.

Garoppolo is expected to be a 2nd round selection in the draft and the Texans could be considering taking Garoppolo at the top of the 2nd round. If they do that, they could use the top overall selection to take Jadeveon Clowney.
Garoppolo would get the opportunity to start for the Texans if he were selected by them in the 2nd.
If the San Francisco 49ers took him in the 2nd or at the end of the 1st round, he would be used as a backup for Colin Kaepernick.
