After trading up nine picks, the San Francisco 49ersnow have the number three pick in the 2021-2022 NFL draft.
With a broad choice of players in the draft, fans and analysts speculate that the 49ers general manager John Lynch will use the third pick to draft either Ohio State’s star quarterback Justin Fields or BYU’s quarterback Zach Wilson.
Both Quarterbacks under Kyle Shanahan will shine in this offense. They have weapons from George Kittle to Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk.
The 49ers haven’t had a mobile quarterback since Colin Kaepernick, so we can only imagine how explosive this offense will get drafting either quarterback.
Let me remind you that also under Jimmy G; the Niners strive well. Still, after dealing with a season-ending injury and a high ankle sprain to keep him out of the game, Garapolo hasn’t been the same, and it’s time to move on, and I think with this first-round pick a great way to begin their moving on process is to draft either Fields or Wilson.
With their recent signings as well, the 49ers’ defense is looking strong. The only thing I see is their slight downfall to this defense is new defensive coordinator DeMarco Ryans.
Taking charge of this defense in this powerhouse division, will he raise the bar higher than Robert Salah, or will he run this defense to the ground.
Guess we’ll have to see this coming up season.
