The Speculations Got Fueled after Lance’s NFL Draft

After Lance got drafted, Colin once again praised the quarterback through a Twitter post, as he mentioned that Lance is the right pick and is a stronger and bigger athlete than Mac Jones. Continuing his statement, he told;
“I know Trey, I like him, I think he’s a really good kid. This is 6-foot-4, 220 [pounds], big arm, can run — he has as many starts as Mac Jones, but unlike Mac, he didn’t have the protection, didn’t have the many receivers that were wide open. Every scout I know, every executive I know loves this kid. This is the right move. I’m sorry, but I can’t go low ceiling with Mac Jones, can’t do it. Ha, it’s great. Yeah, baby, kid earned it, couldn’t be happier.”
Although Liv didn’t comment on her father’s tweet, she did retweet it. In addition to that, she also shared Lance’s Instagram post (Lance had posted a picture of him holding a San Francisco 49ers’ jersey after getting drafted) through her Instagram story.
