The San Francisco 49ers shocked the entire league, March 26, 2021 on a Friday the breaking-news broke that the 49ers traded the 12th pick in this year draft, 2022 third-round compensation pick and a first-round picks in 2022 and 2023 for the Miami Dolphins No. 3 overall selection in this year draft. The 49ers were attempting to move into the top 5 of the draft weeks before they found a deal.
The entire league has guessed that they moved up for Mac Jones, Justin Fields, Trey Lance but the whispers on what really is happening have been locked away in a tiny room and there are only a few people that know the real answer. I’ve personally talked to all the top beat reporters in the local and national level. They have good guesses but everyone I have talked to are 50/50
This is my time to be the general manager and what I’m about to tell you would be a very gutsy decision from the organzation but when you get some of the transaction, they have in the last ten days. This would make a lot of sense. Let’s get to work and here is my 49ers mock draft!
Pick 3: Kyle Pitts, Florida – TE 6’6 245
The San Francisco 49ers shock the league, they take the best non quarter back in the draft, he teams up with George Kittle and will be a scary offense this year as they move to a two tight end and two wide receiver sets. Pitts rare blend of speed, size and ball skills is a combination of George Kittles and Travis Kelce. This will challenge teams with the talents of Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and Kyle Juszczyk. This will be Kyle Shanahan and the front office legacy and they just hit a wide-open TOUCHDOWN!
The next question everyone is saying, who is going to be our quarter back for the future? we have one coming!
The situation with the 49ers not selecting a quarter back, we see Justin Fields Trey Lance come off the board, the players like Penei Sewell, Ja’marr Chase, Devonta Smith, Rashawn Slater, Jaylen Waddle, Patrick Surtain all gone. The 49ers make there move that no one will see coming.

Pick 12: Mac Jones – QB Alabama 6’3 214
The San Francisco goes for it all and scores another TOUCHDOWN! They get their guy they wanted from the start. This has been the plan the entire time, why has it been Mac this whole time, when there have been better players like Fields and Lance? This is a guy who can run Kyle offense and will not waive off his system. This is a player that knows where to go with the ball and something in a QB that we have not seen since Jeff Garcia. Player that can see the field and knows where the ball should go in the open spots. He can throw people open and where his guys will be at and doesn’t need to see it before he throws it. This has been a tough decision to give up this much to get to this spot, however this will not only win games but will pay off with not just a good offense but a great offense. The 49ers will now be favorites to be in super bowls to come for now and the future.

San Francisco 49ers Send: QB Jimmy Garoppolo
New England Patriots Send: 46th Pick in Second-round of 2021
Pick 46: Rondale Moore -WR Purdue 5’9 181
This is the receiver that can stretch the field and is so dangerous in the slot, He shows that he is so elusive, explosive, has very good hands and he has physical toughness when it comes to competing, he is undersized and in his pro day he ran a 4.29 40 -yard dash and had a very quick 6.68 3-cone and a ridiculous 43” vertical jump. His electrifying athletic ability is game changing. He is so dangerous with the football in his hands which fits exactly what Kyle wants in a slot receiver.

Pick 89: Paulson Adebo -CB Stanford 6’1 192
This is a pick that the 49ers were not able to pass up. We have heard that they not only fell in love with Adebo, but they were going to make sure he ended up a 49er and a starter for the future. He is a very loose athlete with his flexibility to open and run up field. He separates great at the top of his route. He can play all coverages but really strives in zone situations. He shows on tape the ability to close and get his hands on the football. Expect him to close a lot of games and a player the 49ers desperately need for the future .

111th Pick in the fourth round of 2021
Pick 111: Michael Carter – RB North Carolina 5’9 200
The 49ers finally get their guy that they thought they had in Jerick McKinnon ,They will use him in multiple packages, He is a homerun hitter every time he gets his hands on the ball. He has great field vision and he waits for his blocks and will strive in the zone scheme. He will take it to the house, he will be huge in there passing game and will pick up his blitzes. The scouting team has stayed in touch with Michael and with the departure of Mostert this would be a great pick!
Pick 155: Payton Turner -Edge/DE Houston 6’6 269
You never can have enough pass rushers and Payton is a monster, He has the length, power, hand technique, nonstop motor to be a starter down the road. I would not expect him to be in the rotation right away. However, this move will pay off while he learns with Nick Bosa and Dee Ford for now.
Pick 194: Michal Menet-Center Penn State 6’4 306
We needed a center for Mack to train for the future, he was a three-year starter and his strength is the zone blocking. he is very explosive at the point of contact and can get to the second level pretty quickly. He had a very heavy hand meaning it’s a very strong hands when blocking. He could see some guard play while he is learning which is a great thing with this team and he has a great future with the 49ers for a long time.
Pick 230: Calvin Ashley-OT Florida A&M 6’6 314
You want to talk about a guy that you will love, this is the guy right here. He has limited snaps and not much experience. This is a guy that wants to learn and you may ask yourself why would you draft him? Just put on the tape and you tell me!
