Oh, how nostalgic! Kind of.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, a former quarterback at Michigan from 1983 to 1986, took snaps from U-M offensive lineman Patrick Omameh on Wednesday at a private workout.
There's obviously the Michigan connection with this nugget of information, but the best part is how Harbaugh neglected to use an actual NFL quarterback at the workout. I don't if that is normal NFL Draft protocal, to be honest. I just think it is cool he didn't call in the fluffer (term used in the porn industry).

Omameh is one of the several hundred draftees who hopes to hear their name called during the NFL draft Thursday, Friday and Saturday—which is why Harbaugh was kicking his tires one last time.
The 6-foot-4, 305-pound lineman was a redshirt senior at Michigan last season. Former Michigan coach Rich Rodriguiz recruited the consensus three-star guard out of St. Francis DeSales (Columbus, Oh.). He was ranked the No. 87 lineman by Scouts, Inc. in 2008.
He started 13 games at right guard during his senior year, was named All-Big Ten first team, and was named to the 2013 Allstate AFCA Good Works team.
He is considered to be a late-round pick by several draft outlets and may end up as an undrafted free agent.
