As we transfer nearer to the NFL Draft, it appears just like the trajectory of the primary few picks is beginning to develop into a bit extra clear. The Jaguars present no indicators of transferring away from taking Trevor Lawrence first, whereas the Jets-Zach Wilson connection was strengthened by Sam Darnold being traded to Carolina.
In response to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the 49ers are set on taking Alabama quarterback Mac Jones with the third choose, although he doesn’t count on them to eliminate Jimmy Garoppolo.
“It will be Mac Jones,” Schefter stated on the “DiPietro, Canty and Rothenberg Present.” “… I consider that in the long run, they are going to choose Mac Jones at three, that’ll be the choose, and they’re going to hold Jimmy Garoppolo this yr.”
San Francisco has been linked to Jones since buying and selling as much as the third choose, and Schefter’s assertion appears to verify that’s whom the Niners are after. The Alabama quarterback has skilled a meteoric rise since profitable the Nationwide Championship in January, going from a borderline first-round choose to presumably being taken third total.
