    • I know Jones had a terrific year, with a great team around him, but I'm not seeing an elite third pick talent. He reminds me more of Jason White, Connor Cook, and Gino Torretta, than Joe Burrows, Deshaun Watson, and Trevor Lawrence. He could be a decent NFL game manager type quarterback, but a third pick overall impact offensive weapon?

    • STUPIDITY!!! Trask is better than Jones for that kind of QB. Look at his ball placement. 49ers could get Pitts AND Trask and get picks back. No way taking Jones over that scenario is smart. Fields or Wilson better be GODS over that scenario. Take Trask and Pitts with Kittle and Deebo....get outta here!!!

  • This would be the most embarrassing move of all time and as a 49ers fan if they draft Mac Jones honestly I hope we lose all seasons until Jones is gone. So they better draft FIELDS

  • Mac Jones has too many questions. Yes he has a strong arm. Yet he was not able to put play tua. He had the same weapons last year. Could not get Alabama to the playoffs. Mac Jones should not be drafted in the first round. 49ers should get Fields. He is a better quarterback in all forms. Great fit for the 49ers.

  • if the 49ers draft Mac Jones, then Kyle needs to go along with Lynch. He is not fit for this style offence and he will not even be NFL caliber. We do not need this type of QB, we need a QB, worthy of giving all the picks. We need a star in the making which is not Mac Jones.

  • They don't seem to understand the 49ers feel they already have the team to win the Super Bowl, they need a QB who isn't going to make mistakes and turn over the ball, and Mac Jones is the least likely to do that.

  • If Jones can hit the weight room, and improve his mobility somewhat, then maybe. But he's really a stretch at #3. I hope the 49ers don't do it. I like Jones, but he's a mid 1st round talent, not a 3rd pick of the draft. Shanahan needs to open his eyes to the QB's the 49ers face in Wilson and Murray, and see how mobility is the key to open the passing and running game. It's not all system. There has to be an element when the called play breaks down. In Alabama, Jones was playing with an NFL level talent O-line and receivers against lesser competition. In the NFL, it's ALL DIFFERENT.

  • San Fran fans got excited when they hire Shannahan because he is among the best qb evaluators and develoers in the world. They pay this man to make these decisions and it is his job on the line and he is the only San Fran man whose opinion matters and he say Jones. It is Jones. Reminds me of a quote an Alabama coach once made about Bama fans. "Coaches who listen to the folks in the stands will soon find themsleves sitting with them." Gene Stallings

  • I think there’s more hype about the “Jones hype” than anything else. Just trying create a story that’s not as big as they say. Nobody knows the future of any of these prospects. They get this wrong all the time. I love to watch their videos on the prospects in older videos. They’re wrong more than they’re right.

Trey lance is a smaller version of kyler murray and justin fields is gonna be similar to patrick mahomes. But ......he will have an arm like warren moon with excellent accuracy. Fields will give the 49ers best chance of multiple superbowls. Screenshot this and read it in 3 years. Guarenteed!

The smart teams usually are the ones that trade down.

  • Tim is spot on. Jones will need to be on the right type of offense to be successful. Today's NFL offenses need more athletic type QB's . Have you really seen enough from Mac Jones to place all your chips on the table for him. Can he carry your team if he has average talent around him, can he win the because of him and can he bring the team back if your defense breaks down. I feel like athletic QB's give a dual threat and often make the defense work harder.
