In just two days, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will begin announcing the selections for each NFL team during Day 1 of the 2018 NFL Draft. The San Francisco 49ers are currently slated to select with the ninth-overall pick.

Following their first-round selection (or selections should there be any trades like last year), the task of reading the 49ers' picks will fall on special guests. San Francisco currently owns the 59th-overall selection in the second round. Announcing that pick will be former 49ers safety Merton Hanks, who is currently the Senior Associate Commissioner for Conference USA.

For the team's third-round pick, which is the 70th overall, former 49ers cornerback Nate Clements will make the announcement. The 49ers currently have two third-round selections with the second coming four picks later.

As for Day 3, teams will announce their selections from special locations of their choosing. For the 49ers, the selections will be made from Lucusfilm by the director of the upcoming "Solo: A Star Wars Story" film, Ron Howard. Also included are Chewbacca, stormtroopers, R2-D2, and the SFPAL 49ers Prep Flag Football Team, according to a press release from the league.

Six worst first-round draft picks in 49ers' history

By Marc Adams
Apr 13

It is less than two weeks away from the 2024 NFL Draft, and the San Francisco 49ers finally have a first-round draft pick, after not having one the last two years. Who will they select? Will it be a defensive player? An offensive player? They could use help on the offensive line and in the secondary and defensive line. And they may also have multiple holes to fill a year from now. Either way, the 49ers need to hit on these draft picks, especially in the early rounds, where they haven't always been at their best. John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have some first-round misses, like DT Solomon Thomas and LB Rueben Foster. But are those the worst first-round picks in team history? Neither made this list, though some will argue that Thomas should be on it, mainly because he was taken

Breaking down the 49ers drafts under John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan

By Marc Adams
Apr 20

We are less than one week away from the NFL Draft, and the San Francisco 49ers have their first day-one draft pick since 2021. That was the year they selected QB Trey Lance number three overall. The trade-up to get Lance cost the 49ers their first-round picks in 2022 and 2023. And now that they are back in the first round, at pick 31, fans are anxious to see what the team does with the pick. And with former assistant GM, Adam Peters, now in Washington, it will be interesting to see how well the 49ers draft without Peters in the room. We looked back at the seven drafts GM John Lynch and Head Coach Kyle Shanahan have led to see what information we could pull from those drafts. There were plenty of hits, plenty of misses, and a few surprises along the way. The draft picks are

49ers analysis: The pros and cons of a Brandon Aiyuk extension

By Al Sacco
Apr 12

John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have made it clear that they want WR Brandon Aiyuk to be a part of the San Francisco 49ers for the foreseeable future. It appears Aiyuk also wants to get something done, but all indications are that he isn't willing to take a hometown discount and the likelihood of playing on the last year of his deal without a holdout or trade request is slim. Simply put: Aiyuk wants to get paid. It's hard to blame him. A player's time in the NFL can be short and it takes just one hit to end a career. So, whether it's with the Niners or another team, Aiyuk will squeeze every penny out of what will most likely be his most lucrative professional contract. But is spending that much on a receiver a wise move for the franchise? There are a
