2021 NFL Draft Odds: San Francisco Tabbed as Landing Spot for Trey Lance at No. 3 Overall

On Friday, we got a rare trade atop the NFL Draft that didn’t occur on Draft Night or the night before. First, the San Francisco 49ers moved up from to the No. 3 spot is this year’s draft. In order to make the move, the Niners gave the Dolphins the No. 12 pick in 2021, a 2021 third rounder and first-round picks in 2022 and 2023.

Then, the Dolphins turned around and gave up the 12th pick, the 123rd pick and their first rounder in 2022 to the Philadelphia Eagles in return for No. 6 overall this season and the 156th pick.

So now, the top 12 picks of the 2021 NFL Draft look like this:

1. Jacksonville Jaguars

2. New York Jets

3. San Francisco 49ers

4. Atlanta Falcons

5. Cincinnati Bengals

6. Miami Dolphins

7. Detroit Lions

8. Carolina Panthers

9. Denver Broncos

10. Dallas Cowboys

11. New York Giants

12. Philadelphia Eagles

The assumption is the Jacksonville Jaguars will take Trevor Lawrence first overall and the Jets will take BYU QB Zach Wilson. But we don’t really know where the San Francisco 49ers will go at No. 3. Well, DraftKings has priced up which team will draft NDSU QB Trey Lance, and the Niners are leading the way.

Trey Lance Draft Position

The Trey Lance draft cycle has been like none we’ve ever seen in the past. Lance was projected as a top-10 pick following the 2019-2020 FCS football season. Then COVID-19 happened and the 2020-2021 FCS season was abruptly cancelled, so we haven’t seen Lance play in some time.

Another curveball for teams looking to draft Lance is the lack of a 2021 NFL Combine. They won’t have a chance to see him on the field with other prospects and will have to go off what they see at his Pro Day.

So where will Lance end up? DraftKings has San Francisco, the new owner of the No. 3 pick, as the overwhelming favorite to take the former Bison. At -110, there is an implied probability of 52.4% that the Niners land Lance.

Who else is in the running to draft Lance, according to oddsmakers?
