Per sources, the San Francisco 49ers have narrowed their options down to Alabama QB Mac Jones and North Dakota State QB Trey Lance with the Number 3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)
There’s been a ton of chatter on who the 49ers would take after trading up to get the 3rd overall pick in the Draft, but now it seems like the choice is between Jones and Lance, and not Ohio State QB Justin Fields. Jones has always been the betting favorite, but it sounds like there’s at least some chance they decide to go with Lance at Number 3. Of course the sources could be off base and this could be a smoke screen, but it sounds like the 49ers have narrowed it down to just two quarterbacks at this juncture.
