49ers acquire Dolphins' No. 3 draft pick in huge trade originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

After checking all of their primary free-agency boxes, the 49ers turned their attention to the 2021 NFL Draft and pulled off a massive trade Friday, acquiring the No. 3 overall pick from the Miami Dolphins, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported, citing sources.

The 49ers later confirmed the trade.

The 49ers will send the No. 12 pick in this year's draft, first-round selections in 2022 and 2023, and a third-round choice in 2022, to Miami to move up toward the top of next month's draft.

Trevor Lawrence is all but assured to be the No. 1 pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars, and most draft experts believe BYU's Zach Wilson will go No. 2 overall to the New York Jets. That leaves Ohio State's Justin Fields, North Dakota State's Trey Lance and Alabama's Mac Jones as the three QBs expected to be available at No. 3.
