49ers fill several holes, add another RB in ESPN 7-round mock draft

The San Francisco 49ers are in a tough situation with the NFL Draft in 2023, as they do not possess their first or second-round picks, with their first selection not until pick #99.

However, the team does have 11 draft picks and is in a position to potentially add much-needed depth at several positions, while fortifying their roster for the future, making it an intriguing, but very important draft for the organization.

ESPN draft analyst Jordan Reid recently conducted a seven-round, 255-pick mock draft where he made every selection for each team, including all of San Francisco's selections.

Here are the results:

No. 99: CB Jaylon Jones, Texas A&M

"The 49ers like long corners on the outside, and Jones is exactly that a 6'2, 200 pounds. He would thrive in a zone scheme that sprinkles in man coverage principles," Reid wrote.

No. 101: OT Nick Saldivieri, Old Dominion

"Right tackle is a weak point for the 49ers, with Mike McGlinchey having signed a high-price deal with the Broncos. Six-foot-six, 318-pound Saldivieri has the potential to step in and fill that void over time," Reid wrote.

No. 102: RB Devon Achane, Texas A&M

"This makes three San Francisco picks in the final four of this round, and the Niners could use this one on a versatile running back. Achane could be a nice fit in this offense. He rushed for 1,102 yards and had 11 total touchdowns this season," Reid wrote.

No. 155 (From MIA): S Daniel Scott, California

No. 164: EDGE D.J. Johnson, Oregon

No. 173: TE Payne Durham, Purduee

No. 216: LB Ventrell Miller, Florida

No. 222 (From DEN): OT Sidy Snow, Eastern Michigan

No. 247: WR Andrei Iosivas, Princeton

No. 253: CB Lance Boykin, Coastal Carolina

No. 255: WR/TE Elijah Higgins, Stanford

ESPN: 49ers have 'no choice' in Nick Bosa contract negotiations

By David Bonilla
Jun 3

Nick Bosa isn't stressing over his contract negotiations. Why should he? The pass rusher has built an impressive resume since the San Francisco 49ers made him the No. 2 overall pick in 2019. Bosa's nine sacks in 2019 helped him earn NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. His 2020 campaign was cut short by an ACL injury, but it wasn't enough to slow down the talented defensive end. Bosa led the 49ers with 15.5 sacks the next season. Bosa racked up a league-leading 18.5 sacks last season on his way to being named NFL Defensive Player of the Year. The 49ers bought themselves some time by exercising the 25-year-old's fifth-year option, ensuring he remains with the team through the upcoming season. Ideally, though, the Niners would like to get a long-term deal done,

George Kittle was inactive for the first two games of last season due to a groin injury. The San Francisco 49ers tight end averaged under 30 receiving yards in the two games following his return. The production started to increase from there. The All-Pro tight end felt healthy toward the end of the season, amid a 12-game win streak (including the playoffs). That has carried into this offseason, which is significant for the player who often exits a season feeling the wear and tear on his body. "It just allowed me to work the way that I wanted to work earlier in the offseason," Kittle told reporters on Tuesday. "Not to take so much time off to rehab and recover, do a bunch of treatments and stuff like that. I was actually just able to get a good foundation in,
