A couple of years ago, the 49ers gave up so much to move up and select Trey Lance as their QB of the future. Now he doesn’t even figure to be a part of their present.
After reports surfaced that San Francisco fielded calls on the former No. 3 pick, the young quarterback did not have much to say to Inforum.com’s Mike McFeely when he told the reporter, “I got no comment on that. I have no information.”
This comes despite the fact that he has been linked in trade rumors, most recently with the Minnesota Vikings.

Trey Lance made his name at North Dakota State, where he quickly established himself as one of the top quarterbacks in the country. In his redshirt freshman season in 2019, he led the Bison to an undefeated season and a national championship, throwing for 28 touchdowns and zero interceptions.
Following his impressive college career, Lance was selected by the San Francisco 49ers as the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. He was seen as a raw but talented prospect, with excellent physical tools and a strong arm.
Lance has already shown flashes of his potential, but an injury during the 2022 season stopped the franchise from finding out if he would be the guy going forward. He has only played in eight games in his NFL career.
Because of his injury, it opened up the window for another quarterback to step in. That role eventually went to Brock Purdy, who led the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game. Purdy suffered an elbow injury in the NFC Championship game which has led to some concerns about his chances to play next season.
The 49ers signed Sam Darnold in the offseason, and he is considered to be another option for the team as it looks toward the 2023 season.
Despite his relative lack of experience at the professional level, Trey Lance is considered by many to be a quarterback with tremendous upside and the potential to become one of the NFL’s top players in the years to come.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
