Jeremiah can envision demand for the 49ers’ No. 31 overall pick

Mar 31, 2020 at 5:30 PM--

Daniel Jeremiah was on NFL Network's Total Access on Tuesday and was asked how many quarterbacks he envisions being first-round picks in April's draft. His answer was four ... with a possibility for one more.

Those four who Jeremiah sees as first-round locks are Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa, Jordan Love, and Justin Herbert. He explained why the San Francisco 49ers might be in a good position with their second of two first-round selections — the No. 31 overall pick.

"But I think a fifth could happen, and I will tell you exactly where it's going to happen," Jeremiah told Andrew Siciliano and Steve Mariucci. "That's the 31st pick. And it's not going to be the 49ers making that pick, but the 49ers trying to collect some extra picks they don't have in those middle rounds.

"I could definitely see that being a trade-up spot for some of those teams in Round 2, want to get that extra year on the contract, come up to 31, and get your quarterback there."

Which quarterback would warrant such a move by an NFL team? Jeremiah speculates that Jalen Hurts of Oklahoma or Jacob Eason of Washington could entice someone to trade back into the first round.

The 49ers acquired their higher pick, the No. 13 overall, via a trade that sent defensive tackle DeForest Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts. The team lacks a selection between rounds one and five, so acquiring more draft equity has to be a priority for the team, should it not find trade partners for players currently on the roster.

There was a report earlier this month that wide receiver Marquise Goodwin was the subject of trade discussions, and Matt Barrows of The Athletic this week discussed the possibility of a trade involving running back Matt Breida.

It sounds like there are several directions San Francisco could go to fill its Day 2 draft void.

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert, armed with a reworked contract, is ready to take on the 2020 season. And yes, he will be playing, in case there was any doubt. Mostert confirmed during a video conference call today that he will not opt-out of the upcoming season as the NFL prepares to play amid a pandemic. Mostert has a lot to prove, after all, and he feels he and his teammates have the right mindset to respond to February's Super Bowl defeat. "I just want to go out there and be dominant," Mostert told reporters. "When I step out onto that field, I want everybody to say, 'That's a bad mo-fo. Here's somebody that we can't take lightly.' I want to put fear in other teams' eyes. That's my mindset. "Even when I'm playing gunner, I just

Kyle Shanahan believes Jimmy Garoppolo can take the next step with less concern over knee

Jimmy Garoppolo is another year removed from the ACL injury that shortened his 2018 season. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback can focus on football and not have to worry about whether or not his knee will hold up in a game or how it will respond to that first big hit. While everyone tried to downplay that aspect of last offseason's preparation, it had to always be in the back of Garoppolo's mind. "It's night and day compared to where I was last year, at this time," Garoppolo told reporters on Tuesday via a video conference call. "At this time last year, it was more so getting back to being in a live pocket, having live bullets flying around me,

San Francisco 49ers players and staff walk by one another with masks over their faces and monitors around their necks, tracking if they come within six feet of each other. They add time to the start of the day, accounting for the process of just getting in the door. "Your morning takes longer to come in," quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo told reporters this past week. "You've got to go through all the testing, answer the survey, and all that. There's a lot of little pieces that go into it, but it's like anything; it's part of your routine now. "It's just kind of getting used to it, and you adapt to it. But, I think the biggest difference is just the
