49ers Fine With Jimmy Garoppolo Altering Draft Position 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Dec 27, 2017 4:08 pm

The San Francisco 49ers are 4-0 since installing Jimmy Garoppolo as their starting quarterback, which has completely changed their draft position. The 49ers were given a 95 percent change to finish with a top-five pick at one point, but now they would pick at No. 8 if the draft were to take place today.

The 49ers could fall out of the top-10 with a win in Week 17 at the Rams.

While the 49ers' draft position is taking a hit, they have confidence that their quarterback of the present and future is already in place.

"I feel the same now," Kyle Shanahan said. "I’m definitely enjoying things more right now. It’s always more nice to win, but the plans for us and the way we see the future and everything like that, nothing’s changed. This is part of the process. We’ve got one more game left, then we’ll relax for just a little bit, and really looking forward to the offseason also.”
