Mitch Trubisky to 49ers in Mel Kiper’s latest mock draft

Jan 19, 2017 at 7:57 AM--


Mock drafts are kind of fun – even this early. However, they don't tell you a whole lot yet. Four NFL teams aren't even done playing football yet. Mel Kiper of ESPN knows this, but people need their mock drafts.

"No team has a draft board yet, and we still have to get through postseason all-star games, combine testing, medicals, pro days and individual workouts," Kiper writes to remind us. "There's a long time until the draft, and we have to get through free agency before we truly know each team's needs. That's why several of these picks are based on who I think is the best player available."

There is no doubt that one of the San Francisco 49ers' biggest needs – and they have many – is quarterback. On Wednesday, Pro Football Focus had the 49ers selecting quarterback Deshaun Watson of Clemson with the second overall pick. On Thursday, Kiper also had the 49ers selecting a signal caller, but this time it was Mitch Trubisky of North Carolina.

"This isn't a strong draft for quarterbacks," writes Kiper. "Trubisky is the best QB in the draft, but he's only No. 16 on my Big Board. He has only one season of collegiate starting experience, completing 68.2 percent of his passes with 30 touchdown passes and six interceptions. The 49ers still don't have a general manager or coach, and Colin Kaepernick could be on his way out."

Kiper has the Cleveland Browns selecting Texas A&M defender Myles Garrett with the first overall pick and the Chicago Bears selecting Alabama defender Jonathan Allen.

The first round of the 2017 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday, April 27.

Pro Football Focus released what is sure to be a controversial mock draft, at least in the eyes of San Francisco 49ers fans. Anthony Treash admits that this mock doesn't necessarily represent what he thinks will happen during the annual rookie selection event, but what he would do if he were in charge of each team's draft. Many predict that the 49ers brass might go quarterback with the team's first-round pick, even though John Lynch recently said that isn't the plan right

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah released his first mock draft and has quarterbacks going back-to-back with the first two overall picks, sending Trevor Lawrence to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Zach Wilson to the New York Jets. Jeremiah has two other quarterbacks coming off the board before the San Francisco 49ers select at No. 12.
