Schefter thinks 49ers ‘like all three’ QBs with less than 3 weeks until NFL Draft

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ Justin Fields and Trey Lance will hold a second pro day to show their stuff in front of Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch. With less than three weeks to go until the 2021 NFL Draft, the spotlight remains on the San Francisco 49ers. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan made the most significant move of the offseason when they traded up to acquire the No. 3 pick from the Miami Dolphins. Lynch and Shanahan have made it no secret that they made the deal to draft their quarterback of the future. The Niners still...

49ers’ draft hats are officially out

49ers’ draft hats are officially out

It’s a black hat, with a red bill, and an old school logo It’s that time of year where we judge the official draft hat for the San Francisco 49ers. The style isn’t far off from the 2020 draft hats. Here’s a look at a gallery of available merchandise featuring the 49ers draft logo. If you like what you see, you can purchase here. The all caps bold white lettering of “San Francisco” stands out, but I don’t think that’s in a good way. The red logo on the red tee? Hmm. I am a fan of the charcoal pullover hoodie. If I were to go with a hat, it’d probably be the...

The 49ers are crazy to draft Mac Jones at No. 3 overall

The 49ers are crazy to draft Mac Jones at No. 3 overall

Kyle Shanahan made it loud and clear that he believes there are three elite quarterback prospects in this year’s class. Mac Jones is a good prospect, let’s not get that twisted, but players selected in the top 3 are supposed to be perennial pro-bowl caliber players in the NFL. That’s not Jones, not even close, at least not at this point in his career. We already know he’s not as physically gifted as the other contenders, but he’s not mentally either, despite public perception. He struggles with ball placement, vision, and his post-snap processing is far from where...

Niners Nation Radio: Potential targets after the first round

Photo by Alika Jenner/ Michelle Magdziuk makes her picks on today’s podcast While the eyes of the Faithful remain hyper-focused on the quarterback, the 49ers will choose third overall; the reality is that San Francisco still has eight other picks to work with throughout the draft. With 20 days to go until the start of the proceedings, Michelle Magdziuk and I thought it was time to focus on who the team will take after the QB in round one. Here are just some of the players Michelle thinks are worth a look in round two: Landon Dickerson, Center - Alabama Even in their...

Trey Lance schedules his second pro day for April 19

Trey Lance schedules his second pro day for April 19

Photo by Sam Wasson/ If you want to feel old, North Dakota State QB Trey Lance was born after Tom Brady was drafted in 2000. Are we ruling out Lance to the 49ers prematurely? Every prominent media member says the team plans on keeping Jimmy Garoppolo for 2021. If the team is only willing to part ways with Jimmy G for a first-rounder, that would mean they’re planning to keep their signal-caller, barring a team getting desperate. If that’s true, based on everything we’ve seen from Lance, why wouldn’t he be the pick? Lance is a much better prospect than many...

Seven-round mock draft: The 49ers trade back into the first round for a pass rusher

Seven-round mock draft: The 49ers trade back into the first round for a pass rusher

Photo by Gregory Shamus/ In this mock draft, the Niners added speed. A lot of it. We’ve been doing seven-round mock drafts every Friday, and we’ll keep that theme going today. The selection at No. 3 will get old. I’m not budging. In the draft, if you have a chance to get an elite player, you do it. Since the 49ers are in a position to grab one, and I’m acting as the de facto GM, it’ll be QB1b. As always, we’ll be using PFF’s mock draft simulator. No. 3 - QB Justin Fields, Ohio St. What trait does Kyle Shanahan love the most in a QB? Nobody knows, but...

What challenges will Nick Bosa face coming back from ACL injury?

Photo by Sam Greenwood/ The All-World pass-rusher posted a video on Instagram showing that he is on the road to recovery. The San Francisco 49ers’ defense was missing a finisher for most of the 2020 season. Defensive lineman Nick Bosa tore his ACL early in the Week 2 win over the New York Jets and missed the final 16 games, leaving a major void in the defense. Bosa has been putting in work to get back into the lineup and be ready for the opening game of the 2021 campaign. He shared a video on Instagram showing his progress (h/t OurSF49ers_): Nick Bosa’s ACL...

Despite a lot of speculation online, Kyle Shanahan is reportedly keeping the decision very close to the vest - even from others in the organization.

Ronald Blair expected to re-sign with the 49ers

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Pending a physical, per Jennifer Lee Chan NBC Sports’ Jennifer Lee Chan broke the news that the San Francisco 49ers are expected to re-sign edge rusher Ronald Blair, pending a physical. Blair missed all of 2020 after suffering a setback in his ACL recovery after going down in the ninth game of the 2019 season. Blair has been a favorite of the coaching staff. I’d assume he’d sign for a one-year deal worth the veteran minimum. With Blair, the 49ers have the following edge rushers on their depth chart: Nick Bosa, Arik Armstead, Dee Ford,...
