Person with knowledge of workout says Hall of Famer Joe Montana's son to work out for 49ers

A person with knowledge of the workout says the son of Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana is set to participate in the San Francisco 49ers' local pro day Wednesday.

Nate Montana will take part in the afternoon session for draft-eligible players at team headquarters, the person said Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the list of players hadn't been announced.

The 23-year-old Montana played college football for four different schools — Pasadena City College, Notre Dame, Montana and Division II West Virginia Wesleyan, where he concluded his career. At West Virginia Wesleyan, Montana started nine games last season and completed 225 of 436 passes for 2,480 yards and 19 touchdowns with seven interceptions and 12 sacks.

Many draft experts don't expect the 6-foot-4, 215-pound Montana to be selected.
