What. A. Quote.
It sure sounds like the 49ers are done with Jimmy Garoppolo. When Kyle Shanahan was asked if he could guarantee Garoppolo would be on the roster on Sunday, the head coach offered the following.
“I can’t guarantee that anybody in the world will be alive Sunday," Shanahan said.
Shanahan went on to say he knows the team is "gonna get a starting quarterback" in the draft, but it remains uncertain which direction they might go.
ESPN's Todd McShay reported that Shanahan wants Alabama's Mac Jones, but GM John Lynch wants North Dakota State's Trey Lance.
This, of course, could all be misdirection and the team selects Ohio State QB Justin Fields.
Shanahan left the door open to any of those possibilities, and more, about who the Niners may take with the No. 3 overall pick in the draft.
After going through the process, I feel good about five guys at three," he said.
The Niners have one of the most highly anticipated picks in the draft on Thursday night as whoever they select could have a domino effect on how the rest of the night plays out.
