The No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft continues to bring a ton of drama.

First Justin Fields was clearly the guy. Then Mac Jones was the overwhelming favorite. Then Trey Lance entered the picture.

Well, now Lance is much more than just in the picture. FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL Draft odds have seen him make a massive surge on Thursday afternoon, and he's now a heavy -160 favorite to go the San Francisco 49ers at No. 3.

Trey Lance 49ers NFL Draft Odds

Lance going to the 49ers would be the first surprise of the draft, as the top two picks (Trevor Lawrence to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Zach Wilson to the New York Jets) are all but set in stone.

That would leave Mac Jones sliding down the board, along with Justin Fields, whose draft stock has been slipping.

This move also makes sense with the recent rumors that the 49ers will not be trading Jimmy Garoppolo.

If they were drafting a pro-ready prospect like Jones, moving Jimmy G would make a lot of sense. But with the more unproven prospect in Lance, who played FCD program in college, having the veteran presence could be very valuable.

Expect these odds to continue moving right up until Roger Goodell reads the pick.
