Mike Mayock mocks LSU safety Jamal Adams to 49ers

Apr 26, 2017 at 6:53 PM--

Draft analyst Mike Mayock held his mock draft tonight on NFL Network and sent LSU safety Jamal Adams to the San Francisco 49ers at the number two spot. Mayock said that he really wanted to give the 49ers LSU running back Leonard Fournette, but decided to go with Adams.

Mayock mock draft - No. 2: Jamal Adams

"Pair him with Eric Reid," Mayock said. "They'll be one of the best safety tandems in football and they can leave Jimmie Ward at corner."

Adams, the son of former New York Giants running back and Super Bowl champion George Adams, compiled 209 tackles, with 18 for a loss, two sacks, five interceptions, 14 passes defended, and two forced fumbles with the Tigers. As a junior in 2016, he had 76 tackles, a sack, one interception, and a forced fumble.

Of course, Texas A&M edge defender Myles Garrett went to the Cleveland Browns with the top selection. On Thursday night, we'll be able to see if Mayock is correct when the 2017 NFL Draft kicks off from Philadelphia.

49ers general manager John Lynch, who is a fan of mock drafts, was complimentary about Mayock on Monday. "I'll tell you one thing, not to give guys plugs but like Mike Mayock, that sucker, every pro day I was at, he was at. He's out there doing the work," Lynch said. "Probably someone who's showing up and doing the work, you tend to listen to guys like that a little more."

Adams' college statistics at LSU are below.

2016 12 76 4 1 0

Our own Patrick Tulini also revealed on Wednesday that he believes Adams will be the 49ers' selection. "Although some think he's merely an 'in the box' strong safety, I believe he's versatile enough to play both free safety and strong safety at the next level," Tulini wrote. "John Lynch and new 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh have made it known just how important the safety position is in the new 4-3 under scheme."

The outlook for the 2020 San Francisco 49ers changed dramatically when second-year defensive end Nick Bosa went down with a torn ACL during Week 2 against the New York Jets. That's how good Bosa is. He is a game-changer on the edge of the once-formidable Niners defensive line that has also lost Solomon Thomas for the year to a torn ACL, and veteran Dee Ford is out indefinitely with a back injury. Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers told reporters on Wednesday that his younger brother, Nick, is staying with him and his parents during his rehab. "It's nice having them around," Joey Bosa said. "They're keeping the place [tidy] for me and food constantly running. I can't

The San Francisco 49ers secondary has missed Richard Sherman lining up against opposing wide receivers. The veteran cornerback hasn't played since Week 1 as he deals with a calf strain. He won't play this weekend against the Los Angeles Rams. In fact, no one seems really sure when Sherman will be back on the field. The 49ers miss Sherman, who has taken on a leadership role for his younger teammates over the past three seasons. In preparation for Sunday night's game, linebacker Dre Greenlaw sat down (virtually) with Liam McHugh of NBC Sports and shared what Sherman has meant to young players like him and the team as a whole. McHugh asked Greenlaw which teammate has influenced him the most. "You've got to give it to a guy like Sherm," Greenlaw
