It’s looking more and more likely that Jimmy Garoppolo might have played his final snap for the San Francisco.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the 49ers have narrowed their choice to two players for the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
“As the 49ers close in on their decision of which QB to take at No. 3, sources say they are down to two prospects — and the belief is those two are Bama QB Mac Jones and NDSU QB Trey Lance. Several sources say the focus does appear to have shifted to those two,” he reported on Sunday night.
NBC Sports insider Peter King suggested in his weekly column that the 49ers could make Garoppolo more available than he has ever been this offseason.
“It won’t surprise me if the Niners make Jimmy Garoppolo more available than he’s been. In other words, instead of trying to get a first-round pick for him, maybe considering taking a two for him. I wonder if the Patriots would deal the 46th pick in the draft, or their second-rounder in 2022, for their old friend,” King wrote on Sunday.
Jimmy Garoppolo struggled with injuries over the course of the 2020 NFL season.
He featured in just 6 games last season, winning 3 and losing 3. It resulted in him throwing for 1,096 yards with 7 passing TDs against 5 interceptions.
