Todd McShay Believes 49ers Are Taking Mac Jones With No. 3 Pick

Rich Eisen: “You have the 49ers taking Mac Jones, you think they coughed up all that draft capital to go get Mac Jones? Why?”

Todd McShay: “I would take Trey Lance. I think he has the highest ceiling of the other quarterbacks after the top 2 [Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson], but the intel I keep getting is that Mac Jones is going to be the pick. Listen, I understand. Kyle Shanahan wants a guy that he knows can understand the game, has the same brain that he has, and he can just throw him out there. If you look at the analytics from the pressure QBR, to the blitz QBR, to the 20+ yard QBR, Mac Jones has the best numbers. But he’s not as athletic as Justin Fields or Trey Lance. Personally, I would take Lance, but Mac Jones makes a lot of sense, and that’s what everyone keeps telling me.” (Full Segment Above)
