After keeping their choice for the No.3-overall pick under wraps until they were on the clock Tuesday night, the San Francisco 49ers ultimately selected North Dakota State QB Trey Lance because they believed he was "the smartest quarterback in this draft" and "the most ready to play right away" according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Lance being the most intelligent quarterback in the draft is something Schefter passed along on NFL Live during the week leading up to the first round. Being "ready to play right away," though suggests the exact opposite of what Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch have said about Jimmy Garoppolo throughout the process. The 49ers are still reportedly asking for at least one first-round pick in exchange for the 29-year-old, but it still seems likely he is off the roster by the time camp begins.
