Trey Lance seemingly was praised by everyone he talked with leading up to Thursday’s 2021 NFL Draft.
The recently-drafted San Francisco 49ers signal-caller demonstrated said maturity in his first official media appearance after being selected No. 3 overall.
And it was when he was asked what definitely could have been awkward question regarding what he wants now teammate, and fellow signal-caller, Jimmy Garoppolo to know about him upon joining the organization.
“I’m excited to learn from him,” Lance said on the ESPN broadcast. “Everything he’s done, he’s a mentor for me. I’m super excited to get there and learn as much as I possibly can.”
Garoppolo probably will appreciate Lance’s sentiments, but may not be thrilled with the organization. The 29-year-old veteran reportedly was not happy with the latest press conference by head coach Kyle Shanahan this week.
Garoppolo, for now, remains with the 49ers although trade speculation remains ongoing.
