The 49ers traded up to the 3rd pick earlier this offseason, with their sights set on a QB. But, they also still have Jimmy G, so do they have the opportunity to take more of a “project”?
News has been that they like Mac Jones. Probably because Shanahan loves Kirk Cousins and Mac Jones is basically… Kirk Cousins.
However, most smart NFL brains were saying not taking Fields after Lawrence and Wilson would be a mistake.
But.. Hot off the press from Bleacher Report:
As the #49ers close in on their decision of which QB to take at No. 3, sources say they are down to two prospects — and the belief is those two are #Bama QB Mac Jones and #NDSU QB Trey Lance. Several sources say the focus does appear to have shifted to those two.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 26, 2021
If this is true, I think they are gonna take Mac.
Unless they are just trying to keep everyone off the trail of Justin Fields. But at this point who cares?
