    I know Jones had a terrific year, with a great team around him, but I'm not seeing an elite third pick talent. He reminds me more of Jason White, Connor Cook, and Gino Torretta, than Joe Burrows, Deshaun Watson, and Trevor Lawrence. He could be a decent NFL game manager type quarterback, but a third pick overall impact offensive weapon?

    STUPIDITY!!! Trask is better than Jones for that kind of QB. Look at his ball placement. 49ers could get Pitts AND Trask and get picks back. No way taking Jones over that scenario is smart. Fields or Wilson better be GODS over that scenario. Take Trask and Pitts with Kittle and Deebo....get outta here!!!

    Unfortunately for Mr Jones bama qbs transitioning to the nfl has not been a success story. I ll give him props that’s he’s probably a pretty good Qi but when you have A1 talent everywhere around you on the offense it’s hard to evaluate just how good he really is.

    Nobody said Mahomes was “transcendant”. Nobody said Russell Wilson was “transcendant”. The only reason Trushitzky went as high as he did is because he ticked the athletic box. Ticking all the boxes isn’t how you avoid a bust. Mac Jones had the most impressive season EVER talent around him be damned! And if talent is a factor then the 49ers have all of that and then some.

    49ers should take the LT, from Oregon. The last time the 49ers, drafted an offensive line, with the first three rounds it turned their franchise around. In any other draft Jones is a third to fourth round pick. Someone will be fired if he’s picked high. Fields is not accurate enough to be a high level NFL QB.

    There are flaws in their argument against Mac Jones...the goal is to win the super bowl, if the niners feel like he is the QB that can make all the reads , hit receivers in stride, has great pocket presence... then why would u pass on him because he’s not an alpha athlete physically...the best traits for a QB are accuracy, reading the filed, and movement in the pocket...u dont need the strongest arm, or to be fast....replace Jimmy G with Matt Ryan in that superbowl and they win it...thats the goal....super athletes at position players is a must ....but at QB mental awareness and accuracy trumps both of those...and for the record Mac Jones doesnt have a noodle, look at the tape

    I love Macus Spears. Great guy. But funny to hear a bunch of guys talk about NFL. They get paid to. If Mac Jones ends up 3rd pick in the draft.....Good for him. It's because he's earned it. Or Justin Fields..... I'm just glad I don't have to make multi- million fodder decisions. Choosing sock colors is fine by me.

    Ridiculous! Athleticism is not the defining characteristic of success for a qb in the NFL. Too many good ones don't have tons of it. The order of the pick is irrelevant as well. At 3 who is the best pick??? Only time will tell! What if history shows that Mac turns out to be the next Matt Ryan in Shanahans offense, and Fields and the rest turn out to be busts! That is a possibility too. At this point there is not enough data, and no one has a Chrystal ball. A lot more humility is sorely needed from a LOT of fans and analysts! Less assuredness, and more humility. I read a comment where a 49er "fan" said he will stop watching if the Niners draft Jones. Again, ridiculous!

    This is so stupid. So, these guys wouldn’t draft Tom Brady because he wasn’t worth the 3rd pick in the draft. Guess what, Mac Jones looks hella better than Brady coming out of college, that’s a fact. The problem is, yes, Mac Jones isn’t value at number 3, and much less value at 3 first round picks, but, unless the 49ers went ahead and did this crazy trade they wouldn’t have had a chance to get him back at 12, so, you decide, value? Or going all out on the guy you want. When you really want a guy, you have to do whatever it takes to get him, is it value? No, will it be worth it? Only time will tell.

    Mac Jones has too many questions. Yes he has a strong arm. Yet he was not able to put play tua. He had the same weapons last year. Could not get Alabama to the playoffs.

    If Jones can hit the weight room, and improve his mobility somewhat, then maybe. But he's really a stretch at #3. I hope the 49ers don't do it. I like Jones, but he's a mid 1st round talent, not a 3rd pick of the draft. Shanahan needs to open his eyes to the QB's the 49ers face in Wilson and Murray, and see how mobility is the key to open the passing and running game. It's not all system. There has to be an element when the called play breaks down. In Alabama, Jones was playing with an NFL level talent O-line and receivers against lesser competition. In the NFL, it's ALL DIFFERENT.
