>> look at a pick that probably surprised and relieved a lot of niners fans yet we were standing on pins and needles right here in the studio waiting to see who they pick them. caution had told us a few days ago that the fans absolutely will not influence who he selects at 3 today. so either he was lying or he was just leading us on for the past couple of weeks because like justine said, trey lance is the forty-niners. >> newest quarterback. he went to north dakota state university in back in 2019, lance one the starting quarterback job and completed over 66% of his passes. he threw for over 2,700 yards and threw 28 touchdown passes and get this. not a single interception. he also ran for 1100 yards and 14 scores that season. he won the walter payton award which goes to the top player in fcs and of course, he won the missouri valley conference player of the year award and he led the buy-in to a 16 and oh record
and a national championship. he's a big guy is about 6, 4, 230 pounds and he's mobile. he can run. and one thing kyle shanahan has expressed in the past. he needs a guy who is reliable and this guy was never her in during his college career played in every single game he could have started in and you know, he's a guy guys who just the forty-niners some athleticism that that position and he's a guy who, you know, you don't have to inject much life into the forty-niners fan base. but this pick is going to inject some life jimmy garoppolo. not a bad player in his own right. but like how said he just could rely on him to be on the field. nfl your best ability is your availability. so now trey lance comes in. he's a very young 20 years old. but you know what? he seems like he's a very mature kid. he's from minneapolis small town in minneapolis and one thing that
i learned about him over the past couple of weeks. he was begging 4 d one schools to recruit him as a quarterback will not. one school recruit him as a quarterback. the only school to recruit him as a quarterback. do one double a and b a few his dream school in minnesota. they wanted him to come in the outside. linebacker may be a tight end. now. he's the starting quarterback maybe what an francisco forty-niners. that's a pretty good consolation prize. i know, too. you can go on about this novel are little details for a long time. but what happened to the aaron rodgers rumors that were circling earlier in the day was that just like that internet thing or was that legit on. i you know, the reporters who came out and reported that info are legit reporters. adam schefter was one of entree when go another. and i guess. >> aaron rodgers has a small list of teams he would prefer to play for the 49 ers on that list along with the denver broncos in las vegas raiders. >> and you know.
>> it's it's hard to gauge what is certainly accurate and what isn't, but would make sense. aaron rodgers is from chico. this is a team that's not far away from being in the super bowl. you would think you plug in rogers and they've become pretty much a favorite. so he's probably thinking that as well. united still. >> trey ferry riders like trade. trey the packers and they they certainly could. so i guess it's the packers. the onus is on the packers about do they want another quarterback. they drafted one in the first round last they trey lance was this pick 4 the packers is a lot to be determined. so we don't know. but all we do know is right now the niners got themselves. a new quarterback for the time being. and it seems like the fan base is pretty static. there's another guy who went to alabama who was rumored to come here. matt jones who the fan base super excited about. so right. i think everybody let out a big x how. roger goodell said trey lance. fair
enough side. he needs some work. he's a bit of a project, but he's a ton of talent and the exciting see what he does yeah. stace. exactly. aaron rodgers says it go and we'll have at the 6 o'clock hour and hopefully hear from someone for the forty-niners about this pick. >> sounds good. thank thank you, jason. >> all right for your health right now. cruising may be making a comeback in a letter that was released by the cdc. cruz's could resume on american waters by mid-summer. the industry has been unable to operate for over a year and an update is coming as the travel restrictions across the nation continue to loosen the cdc notes that though cruising will never be a 0 risk activity. the goal is to establish a plan mitigates the risk of covid-19 transmissions as much as possible. we'll take a break and be right

you can relax and then some sets starting the waves were strong in about 6 to 8 feet high as 8 ended up losing his surfboard during the rescue. >> his struggle a little that can really. thing. he told me is his first time he's ever been in the ocean. zaid kept the man afloat until help arrived rescue swimmers from central fire protection district in sean rothwell assistant harbormaster rothwell says local surfers the first to help swimmers having a tough time in the water. we've we've had plenty of calls over the years where. >> you know, our local surfing community will will render aid and we we count on them quite quite a bit. actually, roswell says this victim was brought to shore with just a few minor injuries. thanks to zeta his quick thinking many are calling him a hero, including witnesses to the rescue like
cammy rickman. he was amazing. he really was amazing. >> zaid says he was just doing what needed to be done. >> as state on something like that. then i feel so comfortable. there. >> people are now trying to raise money to help buy surfboard little. >> over while glad people could see like what he should do. they help people. no, they don't sums going on publication. on these people dying. >> in santa cruz michelle kingston kron 4 news. good to see people doing the right thing. yeah. big heart and strong swimmer didn't leave him. i know all you want to talk about this. the forty-niners in the nfl draft. >> that's not true. all you guys are talking about. it's exciting. yeah. the coming true of a new quarterback and we'll talk a lot more about
