Shuttershock

We have our first major 2021 NFL Draft trade. The San Francisco 49ers sent a stockpile of future picks and the No. 12 overall pick in this year’s draft to the Miami Dolphins in order to move up nine spots to No. 3 overall.

The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Along with swapping first-round picks, the 49ers are sending a 2021 third-round pick, and first-round picks in 2022 and 2023 to the Dolphins.

San Francisco is now expected to target one of this year’s top quarterback prospects after Trevor Lawrence — Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, Trey Lance, and Mac Jones — and it likely signals the end of Jimmy Garoppolo’s time in San Francisco.

The move back also shows Miami’s commitment to Tua Tagovailoa in the immediate future.

Immediately after trading back to No. 12, the Dolphins moved back up to No. 6 by sending the No. 12 overall pick, 123rd overall pick, and a 2022 first-rounder to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Slow Friday, eh?
