NFL running back turned analyst Maurice Jones-Drew released his second mock draft and didn't have the San Francisco 49ers selecting Mac Jones, going against the national media narrative that the Alabama quarterback is a near-lock to join Kyle Shanahan in the Bay Area. Jones-Drew sees another prospect as a perfect fit for the 49ers head coach's offense. With Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson expected to be off the draft board by San Francisco's pick at No. 3, Jones-Drew has Shanahan and general manager John Lynch selecting Justin Fields of Ohio State.

With so many smokescreens and teams keeping their strategies close to the vest, it's tough to believe anything you hear when it comes to pre-draft rumors and speculation. Everyone in the media feels the San Francisco 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot for Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, whether they can make sense of it or not. Much of that is based on what they hear from around the league. Their colleagues and other teams feel Jones might be the pick, despite the overwhelming opinion that the selection would be a reach. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks doesn't even view Jones as worthy of a first-round pick, much less No. 3 overall. "Perhaps the Alabama quarterback is a secret member of The Avengers, operating like Tony Stark as Iron Man,"
