49ers | Niners unlikely to draft 1st-round QB (Sat Jan 9, 03:08 PM) - San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch says the team isn't likely to draft a quarterback in the first round this spring. 'We certainly could (select a QB, but) I don't anticipate that right now. But we're so early in the process, we'll do what's best for this team,' Lynch said, via NBC Sports Bay Area. 'I do wanna make it clear, and I think Kyle and I have been fairly transparent since we've been here, we have a lot of belief in Jimmy Garoppolo. Where does that come from? It comes from the sample that we have, and when he's been out there, we've been better. We've been successful.'

Our View: Garoppolo has two more years left on his contract but there's not much left in dead money. That means the 49ers could move on from him this offseason if they felt that was the best move. They have the no.12 pick in the first round and with five cornerbacks as UFAs in 2021 they might go defense with that first pick.
