How San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance looks in his rookie season will be a huge storyline throughout the 2021 campaign. Lance's potential and dual-threat abilities were exciting enough to trade up up for, but the consensus around the draft was that the former North Dakota State QB needed a bit of seasoning before he was ready to lead a franchise.

With the critics lining up to scrutinize Lance at every turn, another NDSU quarterback has reached out with advice for Lance ahead of his rookie year.

New Indianapolis Colts starter Carson Wentz offered up his advice to Lance heading into a season where all eyes will be on him. Wentz wants Lance to block out any kind of distractions that outside pressures will bring.

"They have a great culture there in San Fran, a good coaching staff. So I know he’s going to do a great job, and I’m excited for him. I just keep telling him to be himself: ‘Don’t let any of those things change who you are, change your values, change your perspective on football. Just go play.'”

Wentz is no stranger to pressure after serving as the Philadelphia Eagles' starter since his rookie year in 2016. Things ultimately didn't work out there, but the experience gave him plenty of lessons he can pass on to his NDSU brethren.

We'll see if Lance gets to use Wentz's advice when their two teams square off on Oct. 24.
