It was widely expected the San Francisco 49ers would be deciding among three players — all quarterbacks — with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
It seems we may be able too scratch one of those three off the list.
The 49ers reportedly have shifted their focus to Alabama’s Mac Jones and North Dakota State’s Trey Lance, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported Sunday night. Essentially, that takes Ohio State’s Justin Fields off San Francisco’s board.
The 49ers already had a rumored interest in Jones, but their feelings of Lance clearly are now heating up.
The 2021 NFL Draft will begin Thursday.
