SANTA CLARA – David Fales participated at the 49ers’ local Pro Day on Friday. Here is what Jim Harbaugh said about Fales.
Q: What do you like about David Fales as a prospect?
HARBAUGH: A lot. I’m a big fan. My personal quarterback evaluation of this class has David in the top five.
Q: What does he do well?
HARBAUGH: I think he sees the field. I think he throws the ball downfield. A lot of quarterbacks are doing what they’re taught in their systems. He is a guy that is an example of a quarterback who throws the outside lanes, he throws the ball in the seams and gets it down the field and sees the field well. He’s got a real savviness about the position. Big difference in the San Jose State win-loss record when he was the quarterback as opposed to before he was the quarterback. He has risen with the program and brought wins.
Q: Does he have a strong enough arm?
HARBAUGH: You see a very, very compact throwing motion. Today, more compact than what I saw during his career, but he was still throwing the ball 50, 55 yards downfield, throwing the deep comebacks, the outside lanes like he did at college easily, accurately and on a line. Do not see any deficiencies that way.
