07:28 PM ET 04.28 | Nate Montana went undrafted over the weekend, but could still have a shot at joining the 49ers. The son of legendary 49ers quarterback Joe Montana, Nate will accept an invitation to try out at the 49ers' minicamp on May 10-12. "He's going there and hopefully get a contract," said his agent, Marty Magid. Nate, also a quarterback, played for a different college each of his four years. Last year was undoubtedly his best while playing for West Virginia Wesleyan, completing 225/436 passes for 2480 yards and 19 touchdowns. However, he will have to prove himself if he wants to compete at the next level. Being the son of an NFL legend gets your foot in the door, but beyond that it only makes it harder to succeed as the expectation is built into your bloodline.

Nice gesture by the niners, but ultimately that is all it will amount to.

The Alabamas and Miamis quake with dread at the mere whispering of those three words.

There's a reason he played for 3 (maybe 4) different colleges... and went undrafted.
