The 49ers have acquired their quarterback of the future, as they traded one of their two 2018 second round picks to the New England Patriots, in exchange for Tom Brady’s understudy Jimmy Garoppoplo. “The Sports Guy” Bill Simmons is going to be upset, he has been making fake Jimmy Garoppolo trades on his podcast for years, with his Patriots always getting back multiple first round picks. As it turns out, Jimmy Garoppolo was not worth one first round pick, all the Patriots got for him was a second round pick in 2018. The 49ers did not have to give up much to acquire their quarterback of the future, and now they do not have to worry about selecting a quarterback at the top of the 2018 NFL Draft or paying a king’s ransom to acquire 29-year-old Kirk Cousins. The 49ers can now use their 2018 first round pick, and all their other resources, to build around Garoppolo. It will be interesting to see how Garoppolo does away from the Patriots system, the last few overhyped Tom Brady backups fell flat on their faces, but word around the league is that Garoppolo is different and has the talent to succeed.
