When the 2021 NFL Draft begins, the San Francisco 49ers will have the No. 3 overall pick and most believe they will select a quarterback when they are on the clock.
According to Ian Rapoport, the 49ers have narrowed their options down to two choices.
Rapoport is reporting that the 49ers will select either Alabama QB Mac Jones or North Dakota State QB Trey Lance with the No. 3 pick.
If this report is accurate, the 49ers have already decided that Ohio State QB Justin Fields has been eliminated from contention.
This should not come as a surprise as I’ve been saying for some time now that Fields would not be one of the top 3 QBs taken in 2021.
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.
