Kerr's funny answer to who 49ers should draft with No. 3 pick

The 2021 NFL Draft will be held Thursday evening, and the 49ers own the rights to the No. 3 overall pick.

Speculation about who the 49ers will select has been rampant since the franchise in late March struck a blockbuster trade with the Miami Dolphins to move up to No. 3 from No. 12.

It's a very hot topic in the Bay Area, and even Warriors coach Steve Kerr was asked about the 49ers' position after practice Wednesday afternoon.

The reporter did preface things by saying heĀ was going to askĀ something completely out of left field.

And Kerr -- fresh off anĀ embarrassing loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night -- wasn't angry with the question, but certainly wasn't in the best of moods to engage.

Kerr did wind up giving an answer, saying he'd take Oregon left tackle Penei Sewell at No. 3 - definitely an "off the board" answer for the 49ers, who have made it clear they're taking a quaterback.
