Monday’s press conference with San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch didn’t offer any concrete clues on which quarterback they’ll be taking with the third overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft, but one thing did become perfectly clear — they very much seem to like the options they have in front of them out of a group that will likely consist of Mac Jones of Alabama, Justin Fields of Ohio State, and Trey Lance of North Dakota State.
The world won’t know which of those players the 49ers like the most until the draft’s first round takes place on April 29, but there’s already been plenty of speculation as to who the selection will be. The widespread assumption is that quarterback Trevor Lawrence of Clemson will go at pick one to the

No one is questioning Justin Fields’ athleticism. Some question the former Ohio State quarterback’s ability to transition from the college game to the pros quickly. Mark Sanchez recently joined The Pat McAfee Show and explained why Fields’ ability to learn an NFL playbook might not take as long as some might be anticipating.

Who does Wyche feel the 49ers are targeting at their improved draft position?
“The people I spoke with believe it’s either Trey Lance or Justin Fields,” Wyche told Martin. “They think that those mobile quarterbacks with the big arms would fit perfectly into what Kyle (Shanahan) likes to do, and they also think that Zach Wilson won’t be there at three.

Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields had an impressive throwing session during Tuesday’s pro day in Columbus. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch weren’t in attendance, but assistant general manager Adam Peters and a small contingent of San Francisco 49ers staff were.
Shanahan and Lynch hope to catch up with Fields later. The duo was in Tuscaloosa to watch Mac Jones at Alabama’s pro day.
“We talked to (agent) Dave Mulugheta the other day, and he said that they’d be able to set up another [workout for Fields],” Shanahan told reporters on Monday. “That’s why we chose Alabama. I’m excited to see him eventually in person. I’ve also got a lot
