Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta stole the show at this years Senior Bowl. Yes, you read that right. The quarterback of the Richmond Spiders outperformed the likes of Wyoming’s Josh Allen, Heisman trophy winner Baker Mayfield and others.
Lauletta passed for a game-high 198 yards and three touchdowns to help the team of top seniors from the South blow out the North, 45-16. You may be asking why should we care about a QB from Richmond who is expected to go late in the draft, well the 49ers had a meeting with the Richmond QB earlier in the week,

Lauletta was asked who he gets compared to, and he cited the Jimmy Garoppolo.
Jimmy Garoppolo, an FCS guy, a guy I’ve been compared to a few times throughout the process,” Lauletta said. “He’s a great guy to be compared to; he’s doing really, really well. That whole system they have, the success speaks for itself.
”You look at the quarterbacks they’ve taken over the years, and I think I fit that profile as far as a guy who processes information well, good football IQ.
