Davis could go to the 49ers or Cowboys

Feb 27, 2007 at 5:00 PM--


NFL Network's Adam Schefter seems to believe that the San Francisco 49ers will be the team most likely to sign OT Leonard Davis. Schefter feels that there are two good reasons why Davis could choose the 49ers. One would obviously be the fact that the 49ers have more cap room than any other team in the league. Second, the current 49ers offensive line coach, George Warhop, was the man who helped draft and tutor Davis while in Arizona.

However, ESPN's John Clayton seems to feel that the Dallas Cowboys are the front runner to acquire Davis' services when free agency begins.

Fowler: 49ers' draft moves could change plans for Jimmy Garoppolo

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is set to earn about $25 million this year. Whomever they pick at No. 3 overall will have a cap hit of about $6.2 million in 2021, per OverTheCap.com. If the gap between the two players isn't seen as great—and a lot of that may depend on actually getting the rookie into the building and seeing how fast he can progress—that could accelerate the plan to part ways with Garoppolo. Maybe something happens before the draft. Maybe it happens during, after, or even next year. For now, the 49ers sound comfortable keeping Garoppolo around for another season while their rookie quarterback sits and learns. It's a prudent plan considering the roster is built to compete for a championship right now. On Sunday, ESPN's



Silver: Some believe 49ers could draft Justin Fields, taking Shanahan's offense to 'another dimension'

As is the case with many analysts, NFL Network's Marc Ross sees Justin Fields of Ohio State as the better prospect when compared to Mac Jones of Alabama. The former Buckeye will hold a second pro day next week, but Ross feels the quarterback has already shown everything he needs to show to NFL teams. "If teams, right now, are still trying to figure out if Justin Fields is the guy, then they've already missed the evaluation, or he's not their guy," Ross told Andrew Siciliano, Bucky Brooks, and Mike Silver on NFL Network. Ross notes that with teams likely already having all of the information they need on the quarterback prospects, it is admirable that Fields is holding another pro day when he has little to gain. "This is just him being a competitor

Who will it be? Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State? Or could the San Francisco 49ers go in another direction? Immediately following the trade from No. 12 to No. 3, NBC Sports analyst Chris Simms, voiced his opinion. He feels Mac Jones of Alabama is the best fit based on what he knows about his close friend, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. https://twitter.com/CSimmsQB/status/1375504136905580545 Simms reiterated those thoughts on Monday while speaking to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.

Breer: 49ers started looking into drafting a quarterback after the season ended

The San Francisco 49ers knew a change was needed immediately after the 2020 season ended. At one point, the team had Super Bowl aspirations. The team ended up finishing with just six wins. Much of that had to do with the unprecedented number of injuries the roster endured. Much of that had to do with the unavailability of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, the decision to draft a rookie quarterback came soon after the season's conclusion. That's when coaches and front office personnel started doing extensive homework on the incoming rookie quarterbacks. "(Head coach Kyle) Shanahan, (GM John) Lynch, assistant GM Adam
