San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan sure does like to keep his options open. He proved as much on Monday when he told the media that the team had five quarterbacks that they felt comfortable drafting.
The team moved up a few weeks back in a bold move, and Shanahan made the point that they did so because they only knew that three QB’s were going to be good enough at the time. He’s now saying that there are five good enough for selection and even hinting that the team could trade down to four or five. They will likely end up with one of Mac Jones, Trey Lance, or Justin Fields, as Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson are thought to be shoe-ins to go 1-2. We shall see, but this only gives us more to get excited about come the draft in just two days’ time.
