Leading up to the NFL Draft, everyone is waiting to see where the best prospects in the land will end up suiting up. For Ohio State fans, the question is where will star quarterback Justin Fields be playing next?

While he's been linked to the New England Patriots, don't forget about the San Francisco 49ers here. Holding the No. 3 overall pick, San Francisco is looking for a QB of the future. At Ohio State's Pro Day, head coach Kyle Shanahan was there to watch Fields throw.

Shanahan was joined by general manager John Lynch and others. You don't say? There's clearly some interest here and it's easy to see why. Fields is a stud dual-threat signal-caller. Shanahan and Lynch know that.

Could it lead to them potentially passing on Mac Jones with the No. 3 pick and going with Fields instead? You never know what might happen on draft night.
