Quarterbacks in the 2021 draft class will be linked and compared for a long time. Most received a significant amount of playing time during their rookie seasons. The one who didn’t was San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. He started just two games and spent most of his first NFL season learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The coming season, however, will be different. Lance is expected to become the 49ers’ full-time starter, with Garoppolo likely to be shipped from Santa Clara.
