responded to senator scott's comments about race and policing in america. hear me clearly. america is not. racist country. i think senator scott was missing that just the boat, but the evidence if we see so much systemic inequity in the criminal justice system in educational opportunity, economic opportunity access to health care, greg lee ktvu fox two news, okay, back, we go to the nfl draft. the 49ers just made their selection with the third overall pick of the draft, and it was a quarterback just like we all lot. joe fonzi is here now. so, joe, who they take? yeah, that part we knew frank. but on march 26 the 49ers made that big deal where they gave up a couple of future first round draft picks to move up to number three. overall we'll let roger goodell handled the suspense. san francisco 49ers select trade lance
5:48 pm
quarterback north dakota state. north dakota state's train. lance is the youngest of the choices. the 49ers had number three. overall he's only 20 as a redshirt freshman in 2019. lance was the 2019 player of the year in the f. c s. that's college football's old one, double a division. he led his team to 16 straight wins and the fcs title without throwing a single interception that season. the bison played one game in 2000 twenties covid delayed season that was a win again. central arkansas, on which lance threw two touchdown passes and the on lee interception of his collegiate career. grand cone is a longtime 49ers beat writer who now writes for sports illustrated. i like this pig. he's a bit of an unknown. he didn't really play. last year, he went to north dakota state, which is a one double a school, but it's the same program that
5:49 pm
produced carson wentz. this guy's a better quarterback, a better athlete from all reports. he is the most athletic quarterback in the draft and the smartest quarterback in the draft. and maybe the one with the most mature decision making ability. he never turned the ball over his first year as a starter. i really like this guy under kyle shanahan, and in this offense, he could become a great in a few years the way maybe josh islands. well, it's well documented that any quarterback drafted is a roll of the dice the 49ers of taking a chance on the youngest and most in experienced of the three quarterbacks they targeted, but he's also the guy who might be the most exciting when it comes to ability, toe throw and run. and if you look around and their division, seattle's russell wilson, cuyler murray and arizona he's in that mold of the type of quarterback that the 49ers have had so much trouble with in recent years. young guy he can run. he can throw the other thing that makes it probably the best possible way to develop a quarterback jimmy
5:50 pm
garoppolo is going to be around and if you could understudy for one year, maybe a little more under a veteran quarterback. the 49ers are hoping this is the perfect way to get there and groom their quarterback of the future guys yet, joe, it seems like this guy's the exact opposite of garoppolo, who's one of those drop back passers, not exactly the fastest guy on the planet. what does this mean? long term, though, for jimmy garoppolo? it seems to me that shanahan i read a quote from him, saying we're looking for our future starting quarterback. period yeah, no question about that, frank and again, as i said, it's a pretty proven method that you don't want to throw a rookie right into the fire. if you could have him understudy look at pat mahomes in kansas city, who was under alex smith for year. but the 49ers were also very honest about the fact that they felt like of the three years that jimmy garoppolo has been a full time starter for the 49ers. he was not healthy for two of those three, so they felt like they had to look for somebody who is going to be the quarterback of their future.
5:51 pm
and this is the guy that they they think is the one. all right, joe. thank you. and now that the suspense is over for the niners, let's see who takes nausea harris from antioch, it's expected that he'll go late in the first round, possibly to the steelers. joe again. thank you. you're back, all right, let's talk whether we have a beautiful afternoon out there, particularly in lynn, where we've been hanging on to some of the heat some of the highest today. unbelievable as well. killing when you consider you should be like in the mid seventies in places like concord, where it was 88 today, 90 and fairfield 87 livermore 85 napa, however, check out san francisco just 57 degrees 55 in pacifica, so that's everything to do with the fact. they had some fog hanging out at the coast of those low clouds this morning that kept everything much much cooler. in fact, you could see just over the last few hours. certainly some clouds were pili up along the zoom out, you do see the marinee
5:52 pm
that kind of takeover is we get into the night tonight, so certainly expecting some fog? what? right now? beautiful is you take a live look out at the golden gate bridge. you can see just a little bit of hay is kind of an education of some of the marine layer that was rolling in a little bit earlier. right now. san francisco sitting at 57 degrees, so still rather cool out there. 70 and santa rosa, so we've cooled off a little bit 80 to those still in concord and 87 in fairfield, about 71 in san jose. so again, you know, well above average tonight, we're gonna see temperatures pretty mild as you do that patchy fog kind of work its way in, especially along the coast were talking upper forties and maybe some low fifties. carlos and then tomorrow we start off foggy in san francisco. it's going to keep you cool throughout the day tomorrow yet again, but you should get some partly sunny skies and their temperatures to get up to about that 60 degree mark highs elsewhere will still be impressive and above average, but w for conquered tomorrow. 80 for santa rosa 75 for san jose, so again still above average, but certainly a little bit more kind of in the
