The San Francisco 49ers made a shocking move to trade in the NFL Draft and immediately put the spotlight on their own quarterback situation.
Jimmy Garopolo’s future with the team is not exactly set until he is at the center of the team, which is coming in September. The 49 could choose the quarterback number 3 of the project.

Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young said the team is looking specifically at Zack Wilson.
“There is no doubt in my mind if [the 49ers] they can figure out how to get Zack, this is their first choice, “Young said on the Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks podcast on Wednesday.”
“I think Zack will like it, the family will like it, nothing will make anyone happier,” Young said. “I think the 49s, this is their first choice, so that would be wonderful. If it can happen, they’ll figure it out.”

Apparently Wilson has thrown draft boards and the planes, even with Sam Darnold, are ready to take the young quarterback number 2. Justin Fields will probably continue to be on board after the 49 are ready to make a choice.
NFL analyst Brian Baldinger told Fox News earlier this week that Mac Jones could even land at number 3.
“They had a good experience with Jimmy G., but he can’t stay healthy. He played six games last year,” he said. “They like him and I rightly mean that he is a good player when he is healthy. But you have to be on the field.
“It won’t surprise me if McJones becomes the man in San Francisco just for intelligence, decision-making and accuracy.”

Kyle Shanahan said earlier in the week that the team would hear commercial offers for Garoppolo, but a deal would be unlikely.
