Trey Lance of the San Francisco 49ers is still up for debate, but ESPN's Marcus Spears has already declared.
The Niners' trade to move up to the No. 3 slot and choose the quarterback in the 2021 NFL Draft a complete failure.
Spears stated on ESPN's First Take, "Look, they have a terrible situation on their hands with Trey Lance. "One of the worst transactions ever made in the NFL draft may be this one.
The good news is that it hasn't shown up in the team's win-loss record because Kyle Shanahan has done such an outstanding job of getting them ready to play and being so innovative offensively.
However, going up and obtaining Trey Lance cost you a lot.Even though Lance is into his third season in the NFL, there are still many unanswered issues.
When he was appointed the 49ers' starting in 2022, he was expected to address the majority of them.
However, in the second week of the season against the Seattle Seahawks, he sustained a horrific injury that ended his season.
Jimmy Garoppolo's return to the starting lineup was made possible by his injury, and Brock Purdy—currently the best quarterback in San Francisco—was given the opportunity as a result.
