Large information coming from a Seattle Seahawks division rival but once more.
The San Francisco 49ers simply traded away 4 draft picks for the rights to the quantity three total choice on this 12 months’s NFL Draft.
Because the tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter says, the Miami Dolphins will obtain the 49ers twelfth total decide within the 2021 NFL Draft, together with their 2021 third-round comp decide, and their first-round picks in 2022 and 2023.
…Besides Miami doesn’t even have the twelfth total decide anymore. They instantly traded that to the Philadelphia Eagles to maneuver again up six spots to #6 total in one of many craziest one-hour sequences you’ll ever see exterior of precise draft day.
This implies 1 of 1 factor, and that’s that the 49ers are buying and selling as much as draft whoever is the perfect accessible on the #3 pick of the group of Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Zach Wilson, and Trey Lance. It’s unattainable to think about that the 49ers would commerce that a lot draft capital to take prime offensive deal with prospect Penei Sewell or one other non-QB prime prospect.
As you’ll have found out, the Jimmy Garoppolo period in San Francisco will certainly be coming to an in depth quickly. Garoppolo has two years left on his contract that carries a close to $27 million cap hit with minimal lifeless cap if he’s reduce, so it’s potential that he could possibly be reduce this offseason. A 49ers supply instructed Schefter that Jimmy G is right here to say however we all know loads of issues are stated that turn into false.
This might turn into an enormous speedy blow to the Seahawks if the 49ers hit a house run on their decide, as they may have cap house and a QB on a rookie contract for the following 5 years presumably, hurting the Seahawks possibilities in an already powerful division.
