The most important piece of the puzzle is in place in San Francisco, and now the 49ers will look for the complementary pieces in the 2018 NFL draft. That’s the word from 49ers General Manager John Lynch, who said today on FS1 that the 49ers are heading into 2018 thinking that Garoppolo is the man, and now they need to use the draft to put other players in place around him. “It frees you up in the draft to go looking for other needs and build your team around him,” Lynch said of having Garoppolo in the fold.
