at this point. If his rehab holds to form Brock Coyle Jersey , Jimmy Garoppolo will be back starting for the team when the preseason arrives. Nick Mullens emerged as an impressive backup option and could very well supplant C.J. Beathard for that role over the next seven months. The team might bring in some competition for camp, but their quarterback room is mostly set.The same cannot be said for much of the rest of the NFL. The best teams are able to find their franchise quarterback and build around him. The Super Bowl shows two such options and different ways to approach it. Both Tom Brady and Jared Goff were acquired in the draft, but the Patriots are at a point of building around a more expensive veteran, while the Rams are benefiting from Goff’s rookie deal.The 49ers don’t need a quarterback, but their pursuit of a high end edge rusher or other big defensive option in the 2019 NFL Draft could be impacted by the evolving market. The latest news is that the Philadelphia Eagles are expected to let quarterback Nick Foles walk free and clear, per NFL reporter Cecil Lammey. They could exercise his option and force him to pay back some bonus money, but it seems unlikely they’ll do that.Looking through the 2019 draft order, teams that might need a quarterback include the Buccaneers (#5 overall), Giants (#6), Jaguars (#7), Broncos (#10), Dolphins (#13), and Washington (#15). The back half includes teams potentially looking for a long-term option for down the road, but those six teams are the most likely to make some kind of splash at the position due to their current circumstances.Foles does not seem like a long-term option, but his performance in the Super Bowl last year and then given the Eagles a run this year suggests someone might overpay at least on a short-term deal. Nobody will give him a five year contract, but someone could view him as a sufficient bridge option that they decide they don’t need to make a move up the draft board for a quarterback at this point. He’s just one of several names that will need to be on our radar as we try and figure out what might shake things up around the 49ers come draft day.

J. Hockenson and Noah Fant were both drafted in the first twenty picks during the first-round of the NFL Draft. But those guys really owe George Kittle big time for their first-round salaries. Nobody was thinking about Iowa TEs two years ago.Sure, there have been several Iowa tight ends drafted over the years, and Dallas Clark was a very good one for 11 years. But he’s really the only big success in this century. Scott Chandler took years to get on a roster before having four solid years with the Bills. Brandon Myers had two good years (and six weak ones). Tony Moeaki faded fast, C.J. Fiederowicz had one good year, and Tony Jackson never even saw the field.So there is a reason that John Lynch was able to sneak off with Kittle for just a fifth round pick. Sure, his injury helped. There’s also the fact that Iowa never throws the ball, so Kittle’s tape was mostly just run plays.He was seen as blocking TE, a position not valued much in the league.Kittle rewrote the whole concept of tight end. Forget blocking tight ends and move tight ends; you need to be both. As wide receivers get taller, move tight ends who can’t block are just slow receivers. Also: Kittle isn’t slow. So when both of his successors had strong seasons this year, NFL scouts were ready to pounce. Great for Hockenson and Fant, but not much use to Kittle, who’s still playing on a 5th round rookie contract.He’ll make $720,000 next year. Based on last year’s deals, Fant should make more than $2 million, and Hockenson twice that. And there’s almost no chance they’ll be as successful as Kittle.They owe him big time.
