49ers trade up for 3rd pick in draft

Recommended Posts

Surprised to see that before draft day. There's always a (admittedly, very small) chance something happens to one of the QBs between now and then that knocks them out of consideration.

Now that they have a top 10 WR and a top 5 TE, I guess it's time to upgrade at QB.

He already used "they're" correctly, so he must know the difference between there, their, and they're; hence, he must have been going for "theirs."

I knew they would trade up but they could have  got the pick with giving up 1 first rounder instead of 2 but Lynch & Shanny didn't check with me, LOL.

Is there something that you are reading into that? Something related to the topic I mean? Just curious.

No, it's just the offseason.  Nothing to do but split hairs and pick nits.

I think it's gonna be Trey Lance.

I like that pick. I think he has a lot of upside. He will probably have a few growing pains next season, but I think he'll adjust into the NFL pretty well.

He kind of reminds me of Dak Prescott.

No chance they play Lance next year if they plan to and draft him. No way he is ready to start in the NFL. They sit him under Garoppolo?

Yeah, probably so, but I think they'll still trade Jimmy if they can

or they  commit to starting Jimmy G for this season.   Tell him if he performs well enough, he keeps the job.

They may commit to him for next season but there's not way they trade up to draft a QB 3rd and not play him after that.

Maybe if Jimmy were to play lights out, like a top 5 QB, and the rookie was looking like a bit of a disappointment.

They wouldn't know that for some time though

You are probably right.   The chargers drafted Rivers, and Brees played extremely well, and still lost his job to Rivers.

This was, perhaps,  the chargers biggest mistake of all time.

Then again, Alex Smith played lights out in KC and still lost his job to Mahomes.   Given what Mahomes has done since, I guess that turned out to be a great move.

Either way, The writing is probably on the wall.  

I was never a big fan of Jimmy G.

I do think if hes your QB, it is too early to give up on him.

Matt Stafford was injury prone early in his career and turned into a fine QB despite the crappy organization around him.

That being said....you dont trade up to top 3 in any draft considered deep at QB and not target a QB, so this is likely it.  

I do think they give Jimmy the whole year as starter unless he gets hurt or plays poorly.   I guess we shall see.

it sounds like the team is concerned about him remaining healthy. (or at least... that is the excuse they are using to go down this road)

then again, they get to see the guy every single day.  They (hopefully) have a better idea of what he can do than we all do.
