NFL NFL DRAFT

San Francisco 49ers trade multiple picks, acquire third overall pick in the #NFLDraft

Written by Jeffrey Iafrate

The San Francisco 49ers have been in the talks about possibly trading their current starting Quarterback and the same one who took them to a Super Bowl appearance in 2020. It is being reported by Adam Schefter from ESPN that the Miami Dolphins are trading away their third overall pick to the 49ers for multiple future picks and the 12th overall pick.

This puts the 49ers in the race for a future franchise quarterback, and this 2021 NFL draft class is loaded with talent. Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, Trey Lance and Mac Jones will all be available at the third pick. A source from the 49ers organization also told Schefter that Jimmy Garroppolo is “our guy” and we’ll find out come draft time how much that means.
