The San Francisco 49ers made a game-changing trade moving up from the No. 12 pick to the No. 3 pick in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. It is highly expected to be a quarterback selection and a new storyline makes it seem like the 49ers have a clear target in mind.

San Francisco reportedly met North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance's parents. This is an intriguing update given Lance (+290) currently ranks third in the odds to be selected No. 3, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Mac Jones (-145) and Justin Fields (+165) remain ahead of him.

Lance would fit the 49ers offense rather well due to his dual threat abilities. He completed 66.9% of his passes for 2,786 yards and 28 touchdowns in addition to zero interceptions during his sophomore season. Lance also added 1,1100 yards on the ground and scored 14 rushing touchdowns.

This scenario also makes a lot of sense because head coach Kyle Shanahan has hinted that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is the team's starter in 2021. Lance didn't face any top-tier competition in college and may need time to develop into a reliable NFL signal-caller.

It's important to note both GM John Lynch and Shanahan attended Lance's second Pro Day on Monday. The 20-year-old quarterback prospect showed off his impressive arm talent and high football IQ through multiple drills and plays.

The idea of Lance to the 49ers is definitely gaining steam and don't be surprised if it becomes a reality, too.
