Rich Eisen knows some people. He speaks with some NFL folks. He may know a thing or two about what might be going through the minds of San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch.

Maybe. Maybe not. Who knows at this point? We are getting so much speculation from every direction.

So, what is Eisen hearing about this No. 3 draft pick that the team will be making in just over a week?

"I'm hearing it's Trey Lance," Eisen said on Wednesday. "That's what I'm hearing now. I'm hearing the kid is supremely talented, physically, and neck-up, smart. And also, (he) really wants to learn. Already talking to people, knocking on doors, (asking), 'What can I learn now?' That's what I'm hearing. I'm hearing he's proactively searching out the individuals that evaluate to find out what's up."

Eisen added with a smile: "I'm hearing it might have been Trey Lance all along. How about that?"

On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan, general manager John Lynch, and quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello attended Lance's pro day in Fargo, North Dakota. After being overtaken for about a week, Mac Jones of Alabama once again has the best odds to be the 49ers' pick at No. 3, followed by Justin Fields of Ohio State, and then Lance rounding out the top three.

Eisen noted that he had former NFL executive turned analyst Louis Riddick on his show this week, and Riddick felt San Francisco should draft Lance.

"Highest ceiling out of all of them, built like a linebacker," Eisen said of Riddick's comments. "I'm hearing it's (Trevor) Lawrence (at one), I'm hearing it's (Zach) Wilson (at two), and that is that. And then all I'm hearing is Trey Lance."

Eisen paused and laughed before adding, "Eight days from now."

"The 49ers are the best team in the league," wrote Albert Breer in his Monday morning feature for Sports Illustrated. Of course, he notes that it is subject to change due to the unpredictable NFL. Still, on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the 49ers looked dominant on both sides of the football. The team rolled to a 30-7 win in a typically-tough Acrisure Field environment that had been invaded by a sea of red and gold, much to the surprise of local Steelers fans. "The amount of love that they showed us today all the way out here in Pennsylvania,

49ers' Nick Bosa: I needed a couple of games to get back into football shape

By David Bonilla

Nick Bosa hasn't reached an opposing quarterback yet this season after recording an NFL-leading 18.5 sacks last season. Some of that may be the San Francisco defensive end getting warmed up. Bosa missed all of training camp and the preseason while holding out for a new contract. He finally returned to the 49ers after a six-week absence and just days before the team's Week 1 matchup. The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year has recorded two tackles and two assists in two games. The 49ers enter a short week. They host the New York Giants at Levi's Stadium on Thursday, the team's home opener. Is the 49ers pass rusher worried about the quick turnaround? "I'm not too concerned about it," Bosa told reporters after the
