49ers Acquire No. 3 Pick from Dolphins

The 49ers are ready to upgrade at quarterback. 

The Niners have acquired the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft from Miami Dolphins for the No. 12 pick, first-round picks in the 2022 and 2023 and a 2022 third-round selection, according to ESPN. 

The 49ers paid a hefty price to presumably draft one of the rookie quarterbacks in this year's draft. That could be either Zach Wilson, Justin Fields or Trey Lance. 

What does that mean for Jimmy Garoppolo

As nice as that sounds, there are plenty of quarterback-needy teams who could trade for the handsome passer, including his former team the New England Patriots

But the 49ers have a playoff-caliber roster, so would 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan trust that to a rookie? It remains to be seen.
