CLEVELAND, OHIO (Valley News Live) - With the 3rd pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers have selected Trey Lance.

Lance heads to the NFL at just 20-years-old after redshirting his true freshman season in 2018 at North Dakota State.

He made his first start in 2019 and led the Bison to a perfect season including an FCS national title with a 16-0 record, throwing 28 touchdowns, no interceptions and running for 14 more.

The 49ers gave up a fortune to move up from No. 12 to No. 3 overall. The rumors and speculation have swirled since the Niners made the move. Linked to Lance, but for nearly the last month, to Alabama’s Mac Jones. The Niners did not tell their coaches or scouts the pick, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter, adding that they didn’t know the team was selecting Lance until the pick was announced.
