49ers trade for Trent Williams

The San Francisco 49ers picked up standout OT Trent Williams from the Washington Redskins for a fifth-round pick in the 2020 draft and a third-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft.

Williams, 31, sat out the 2019 season amidst a dispute with Washington. A seven-time Pro Bowler, Williams should immediately solidify the 49ers’ offensive line as San Francisco attempts to get back to the Super Bowl for a second-straight season.

Highlights from Rounds 1-3

Joe Burrow picked No. 1 by Bengals

LSU QB Joe Burrow is a Bengal. He posted one of the best seasons in college football history as he won the 2019 Heisman Trophy and LSU won the national title. You can read Yahoo Sports NFL draft analyst Eric Edholm’s breakdown of Burrow here.

Chase Young is a member of the Redskins

Ohio State defensive end Chase Young is staying in the Washington D.C. area. The Maryland native was selected at No. 2 overall by Washington and is the first draft pick of the Ron Rivera era.

Dolphins take Tua Tagovailoa

The Dolphins did not wait to get a QB. Miami had three first-round picks and used its first one at No. 5 to take Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa. 

Cowboys go with CeeDee Lamb

The Cowboys gave Dak Prescott another target with Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb. Dallas took Lamb at No. 17 and will run out a trio of Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Lamb at wide receiver under new coach Mike McCarthy.

Packers trade up for Jordan Love

Aaron Rodgers was drafted in the first round to replace Brett Favre. Was Jordan Love drafted in the first round to replace Rodgers?

Bengals and Colts start Round 2 with WRs

Cincinnati chose Clemson WR Tee Higgins with the No. 33 pick on Friday. The Indianapolis Colts followed the Bengals with another wide receiver in USC’s Michael Pittman.

Colts move up for Jonathan Taylor

The Indianapolis Colts moved up to No. 41 via a trade with the Cleveland Browns to draft Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor. He could form a fearsome 1-2 combination with Marlon Mack.

Eagles draft Jalen Hurts

Former Oklahoma and Alabama QB Jalen Hurts is heading to a team that already has an entrenched starting quarterback. The Philadelphia Eagles pulled off the shock of the second round by taking Hurts at No. 53.

Ravens bolster offense with J.K. Dobbins

OK, the Ravens’ rushing offense is getting unfair. After boasting an MVP season from Lamar Jackson and getting over 1,000 yards from Mark Ingram and over 700 yards from Gus Edwards, Baltimore took Ohio State’s J.K. Dobbins with the No. 55 pick.

Pats draft two TEs

Devin Asiasi is far from a direct replacement for Rob Gronkowski. But that’s probably not going to stop some Patriots fans from comparing him to Gronk. The Pats took the UCLA TE with the No. 91 pick in the draft and later moved back into the third round to take Virginia Tech TE Dalton Keene.
