Now that Trey Lance is a member of the San Francisco 49ers, the question becomes when he'll get his chance to see the field. But for now, Lance doesn't seem to be thinking that far ahead and is instead focusing on getting his feet wet in the Bay Area. In particular, Lance is looking forward to getting to know his teammates, including current starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and learning everything he can about his new team and his new home. Lance spoke to 49ers beat reporters for the first time Thursday night after the team made him the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Lance was asked if he expected a similar situation as the one he experienced in college at North Dakota State, where he spent time on the sidelines before taking over the starting



La Canfora: Strong expectation among NFL GMs that 49ers try to trade Jimmy Garoppolo this week

The San Francisco 49ers have repeatedly stated that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains in the team's plans for 2021. That would mean a rookie sitting behind him for at least the upcoming season, which makes sense. The 49ers are built to win now and have shown they can do so with Garoppolo at the helm. However, his durability has become a concern after missing 23 games over the past three seasons. Maybe that won't remain the plan. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that there is a "very strong" expectation around the league that San Francisco will make an effort to trade Garoppolo before or even during the draft. "Timing isn't great with 5 QBs about to go in 1st round, but Jimmy G's future there now seen as bleak," wrote La Canfora via

Seattle Seahawks tight end George Kittle. That probably doesn't sound very good to San Francisco 49ers fans, but it could have happened. The All-Pro recently spoke with Matt Verderame on the Stacking The Box podcast (h/t to Tzvi Machlin of The Spun) and shared a story from the 2017 NFL Draft when a team tried to move up to grab him. Kittle's agent told him that he felt the former Iowa tight end might be selected as high as the second round, if lucky. However, most likely, they were looking at somewhere between the third and the sixth rounds. The 49ers ended up selecting Kittle in the fifth round, No. 146 overall, but

A report surfaced yesterday stating that the New England Patriots were preparing a new contract for Jimmy Garoppolo — just in case the San Francisco 49ers decided to trade the veteran quarterback. Another report stated that the expectation around the league is that the Niners would try to move Garoppolo before or during the draft, which kicks off tonight. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero says that there are currently no plans to trade Garoppolo. However, he adds that multiple teams are expected to reach out to San Francisco today to inquire about the
