49ers draft picks: San Francisco shakes up NFL Draft in blockbuster trade with Dolphins

by MD Samsuzzaman Siyam

The Dolphins struck gold in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers.  

Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the 49ers are jumping all the way up to No. 3 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, presumably to select a future franchise passer; the deal has the 49ers sending the No. 12 overall pick, the 2021 third-round pick, and first-round picks in 2022 and 2023 for Miami’s No. 3 overall pick.

The trade means that the 49ers are likely in the market for a quarterback in the draft, with as many as three quarterbacks in play — or more — at the No. 3 overall pick: BYU’s Zach Wilson, Ohio State’s Justin Fields and North Dakota State’s Trey Lance. This is assuming that Trevor Lawrence, the consensus No. 1 overall pick, goes to the Jaguars.

Schefter also reports that the 49ers are sticking with Jimmy Garoppolo for now, despite rumors that the Niners could ship off Garoppolo this offseason.

 Here’s the updated look at both teams’ picks this upcoming draft:
