It's anyone guess as to what happens at No. 3 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft with the 49ers -- I still believe it'll be Justin Fields from Ohio State. After that, this draft really begins with the Falcons. Do they trade down or take Kyle Pitts? 

Also, if Mac Jones isn't San Francisco's selection, does a team trade up to get him? He seems to be liked much more by the NFL -- and CBS Sports draft analyst Ryan Wilson -- than the rest of the draft community.

OK, let's get to it as we go three rounds in our latest mock.
