Forty-nine players, taking into account specific players, rose to the third overall ranking in this year’s draft. We will not know who the player is until the draft pick is officially announced on April 29.
NFL.com draft analyst Lance Zierlein believes that most of the discussion about who San Francisco will draft revolves around Alabama quarterback Mac Jones and Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields. NFL.com draft analyst Lance Zierlein believes that North Trey Lance of Dakota State is best suited for the 49ers and head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Zierlein added the morning roast to the 95.7 game in San Francisco and explained why Lance̵
“What North Dakota did is, it was a full-scale offense. They set up their own protection measures. They will do a lot of outside areas, which is obviously similar.” Zierlein said. “If you want to put that in, then you have the boot movement. With the development of athletic ability, the big man is also on the right track. Indeed, because he is a full-time reader, not a half-time college student. One of the shooting guards, so it really blends its own abilities and can work with the layered passing offense that San Francisco prefers to play. Of course, Kyle (Shanahan) plays much faster, and he also changed himself The offensive method can absorb more of today’s NFL football. This is a replica of the university.”
This will be a fascinating wrinkle in how the 49ers choose their picks. Shanahan said in his press conference that their choice is not only about this year, and they seem to be ready to become a starter with Jimmy Garoppolo, and their rookies need a year to learn the system and accelerate the speed of the NFL.
That would provide some evidence that rookies don’t necessarily need to be familiar with the idea immediately.
On the other hand, there is no guarantee of Gallopolo’s position on the 49ers list. If they can find a suitable deal for him, it is hard to imagine that they will not target actions. This will make the No. 3 pick as a hypothetical starter, and Josh Rosen and Josh Johnson will also be among the top.
Players like Shanahan who are already thriving offensively seem to be able to get to the ground faster than players who need to adapt to the plan.
Maybe the 49ers are looking for something different in their third pick, but Lance’s background at NDSU seems to make him a perfect fit for San Francisco. If Shanahan also likes the physical tools Lance brings, it is not difficult to understand why they would trade three first-round picks to board the board and draft him.
