For the 49ers, I disagree that a 3rd rounder for a backup is too much. Our starting QB is a true dual threat. However, he is limited when it comes to running (this is by design) because the coaching staff doesn't want him to get hurt. They're terrified of him getting hurt because there is NOBODY behind him that they are comfortable with.
Believe it or not, acquiring a capable backup QB will, in essence, help this offense tremendously.
That said, I don't think KIRK COUSINS, in particular, is worth a 3rd.
