Once again, there will be a Montana at quarterback on the 49ers' practice field.

Nate Montana, son of Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana, is scheduled to be among the draft-eligible players working out for 49ers coaches and scouts on Wednesday as part of the team's local pro day, a source told CSNBayArea.com.

Montana is eligible to attend the local workout because he attended Concord's De La Salle High, where he was the third-string quarterback as a senior.

He was a backup at three different schools in his first three years of college eligibility: Pasadena City College, Notre Dame and the University of Montana before enrolling at West Virginia Wesleyan, an NCAA Division II school.

Montana finished his college career at West Virginia Wesleyan, where he played in nine games. He attempted 50 or more passes in seven of his appearances. Montana completed 51.6 percent of his passes, averaged 275.6 yards passing per game, but just 5.6 yards per attempt, with 19 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Montana (6 foot 4, 215 pounds) was not among the 16 quarterbacks invited to the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis two months ago. He is not expected to be drafted.

Montana has been working out in Southern California under the direction of quarterback guru George Whitfield Jr.
