QB - FA
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, after trading up to the Number 3 overall pick, the San Francisco 49ers are likely to select Alabama quarterback Mac Jones in the 2021 NFL Draft.
When asked on ESPN Radio Tuesday morning who the 49ers would select at Number 3 overall, Schefter confidently stated, “It’ll be Mac Jones.” San Francisco traded up to obtain the 3rd overall pick from the Miami Dolphins just a couple weeks ago, and it sounds like they have their eyes set on the former Alabama quarterback. The rumor mill will continue to swirl as to which quarterback Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch decide to ultimately go with, but Schefter at the moment believes it’s going to be Jones, not Justin Fields and not Trey Lance.
Former Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Mac Jones is being rumored to the San Francisco 49ers, per Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network. Jeremiah noted that “Everything you hear points to Mac Jones to the Niners" in the upcoming NFL Draft.
San Francisco now holds the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL Draft after securing that selection via a trade last week. Jeremiah noted that he was just passing along information that he has heard and this is more of a rumor than an official report. All signs are pointing to the Niners selecting a QB and Jones is highly likely to be there at No. 3 with Trevor Lawrence going to the Jaguars and Zach Wilson possible heading to the Jets. Jones led the Crimson Tide to a National Championship last season while completing 77.4% of his passes and tossing 41 touchdowns against four picks. This won't be the last rumor we'll hear about Jones as the NFL Draft is a month away.
Alabama QB Mac Jones has declared for the 2021 NFL Draft.
Jones finished his college career by leading Alabama to a National Championship over Ohio State this week. He had a fantastic year, totaling 41 touchdowns against just four interceptions. Additionally, the 22-year-old completed 77.4% of his passes. Perhaps his success was merely a product of Alabama's explosive offense, but there's a chance a team rolls the dice with him in the first round come late-April. If nothing else Jones should wind up as a second-round selection.
