San Francisco shocked the NFL world on Friday afternoon, trading up to the No. 3 spot in this year’s draft. Just about every analyst believes 49ers general manager John Lynch will either select Justin Fields or Trey Lance.
While it’s possible that Garoppolo could be a bridge quarterback for one of those rookies, Florio thinks the two sides will ultimately go their separate ways.
“The 49ers moved up to No. 3 because they LOVE the QB they’ll get there,” Florio wrote on Twitter. “To love the QB they’ll get at No. 3 enough to make that move (three ones and a three), he won’t sitting for a year behind Jimmy G, or anyone.”

Florio actually made similar comments on Friday after the trade between Miami and San Francisco was announced.
“So the 49ers invest 3 first-round picks and a third-round pick in their next quarterback but they still intend to pay Jimmy G $25 million this year and let him be the starter? And people actually believe this?”
Garoppolo showed potential during the 2019 season, but the reality is he’s missed a lot of time due to injuries. The 49ers can’t just bank on him being healthy for a full season when he continues to get hurt.
If the 49ers choose to trade Garoppolo this offseason, there should be a decent market for him. In fact, a reunion with the New England Patriots seems very possible.
