Peter King floats in his Football Morning in America column the notion that the 49ers could make Jimmy Garoppolomore available than he’s been.” King suggests that the 49ers could lower their expectations of a first-round pick for Garoppolo to a round-two selection. That would essentially become a reimbursement for the second-round pick the 49ers gave up during the 2017 season to get Garoppolo.

I keep seeing the Niners don't know who they are taking at #3. I really find that hard to believe.

Do you trade away all those 1st round picks in the the hope you might like one of the guys who are available at #3? You only trade up when you know who you want surely.

You don't trade up then decide. What if you don;t like any of the options?

It’s possible that they liked 3 QBs, or 4, or all 5, so were comfortable trading up bc they knew they would get someone they liked but are having difficulty splitting hairs to determine which they select if given a choice.

Its possible I guess. Seems unlikely though no? What are the odds you like multiple guys enough to spend three 1sts on them?

If they are totally out on Garopolo - and they are, I don't think they had to know which of the 3 available rookie QB's they were making the trade for at that time as long as they thought any of the three had a reasonable chance of succeeding. Doesn't seem far fetched to me.

I think they believe their team is pretty complete, and that QB and injuries are the only things holding them back. I tend to agree with this unfortunately, so I am not really surprised by the trade even if it only gives them a 50/50 chance of improving, because the status quo was not working.

CBS has their new mock and they now have us taking Zaven Collins. they have Waddle to the Giants ahead of Smith, said that the rumor around the NFL is several teams are shying away from Smith because of his measured weight. They had him going 14 to Detroit in a trade, and called it a steal to get him there.

last week they had us taking Waddle.

THey still have SF taking Mac Jones but the guy said the buzz is it's Lance or Fields but they were not buying the buzz. Fields fell in their mock I think he went 8th.

I think this an average they have so many guys on CBS doing mocks
