According to ESPN analyst Steve Young, the Jets have already made the 2021 National Football League (NFL) draft decision unless any major changes are made.
When talking about how the 49ers hope to select BYU quarterback Zach Wilson with the No. 3 pick, Young – a member of the professional football Hall of Fame who once served as a quarterback in San Francisco – said that the jet is an obstacle to achieving his dream.
Young said in the “Talbert, Kruger and Brooks” podcast on KNBR Sports Radio: “The Jets are committed to Zac and recruited this family.” “I just don’t know how to undo it, but you know, look, Many things will happen.”
The 49ers exchanged two future first-round picks in the trade, rising from 12th to 3rd last week. By making such harsh promises, the 49ers are actually saying that at least four-thirds of them think their future is very bright and are satisfied with anyone.
The Jaguars were almost locked in the first place to take Trevor Lawrence away, and even before Young made a comment, the Jets were considered more inclined to second place Wilson than Wilson. Sam Darnold, a professional player who persists in the fourth grade. This allowed the 49ers to choose between Justin Fields (Justin Fields), Mac Jones (Mac Jones) or Trey Lance (Trey Lance) in third place.
“There is no doubt that if [the 49ers] “Can figure out how to get Zach, this is their first choice.” Young said. “I just don’t know how they did it.”
Of all the teams, the 49ers should have the best understanding of the Jets’ thinking. New Jets coach Robert Saleh was formerly the 49ers defensive coordinator and has maintained close relationships with 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch. Young has also been out of BYU, but also maintains good contact in San Francisco, so maybe he made fun of another possibility by not closing the door completely.
Will the 49ers sell another blockbuster deal in the store in exchange for the No. 2 and No. 3 picks with the Jets? The 49ers set the market for this type of trade in 2017, when they returned from second to third and won two third and fourth rounds from the bear market.
In this case, the Jets will have to decide whether to pair the elite playmaker with Darnold or choose with another rookie quarterback.
“I think Zach will like it, the whole family will like it, nothing can make anyone happier,” Young said of Wilson’s landing on the 49ers. “I think the 49ers are the first choice they haven’t mentioned, so it will be wonderful. If possible, they will fix it.”
