Mock draft season has drawn to a close, with NFL Media analysts Charles Davis (here) and Daniel Jeremiah (here) submitting their final projections yesterday. Several other media members have since unveiled their last mock drafts, presenting the San Francisco 49ers with various potential scenarios.

Predicting the 49ers' actions in the first round is challenging due to the 30 selections preceding theirs. Their draft strategy hinges on events leading up to their turn on the clock.

As the 2024 NFL Draft kicks off tonight, here's a rundown of what the 49ers are projected to do at No. 31 overall in some of the final last-minute mock drafts.

Dane Brugler, The Athletic
Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona

Brugler: "Morgan would have the versatility to move inside to guard while also being the team's eventual answer at left tackle whenever Trent Williams, who is entering his age-36 season, decides to hang 'em up."

Cris Collinsworth, Pro Football Focus

49ers trade pick No. 31 to the Las Vegas Raiders, receiving pick Nos. 44 and 77 in return.

Peter Schrager, NFL Media/Good Morning Football
Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

Schrager: "If Mitchell's still on the board, this pick would make some sense. Consider it insurance for a WR room that's the buzz of the league."

Trevor Sikkema, Pro Football Focus
Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina

Sikkema: "The Niners reportedly held a formal visit with Legette at the scouting combine and also brought him in for a top-30 visit. This could open up the door for a Brandon Aiyuk trade."

Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds
Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona

Talbot: "I think the 49ers are a perfect fit for the big Arizona offensive lineman."

Lance Zierlein, NFL Media
Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

Zierlein: "Height, weight and speed. Admittedly, there is still work to do for Mitchell to reach his potential, but this is a perfect team fit. Plus, San Francisco could have starting spots open sooner than later."

An Arsenal of Weapons: The 49ers Have Quietly Become Even More Dangerous on Offense in 2024

By Don Atkinson
May 13

It's not a shock to anyone who looks back at the past two NFL seasons to contemplate that the San Francisco 49ers' offense has finally stepped out of the shadow cast by the team's ever-imposing defense. Since their 2019 Super Bowl run, players like Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, Dre Greenlaw, and former 49ers Richard Sherman and Jimmie Ward have garnered most of the attention when talking about the team. That was indeed the case until 2022, when future Hall-of-Fame running back Christian McCaffrey, who came to San Francisco in a mid-season trade with the Carolina Panthers, changed the conversation. The 49ers' offense was suddenly seen not just as a semi-capable complement to a sterling defense, but rather as a unit that could put up some points, and in a dramatic way. With the

Steve Young: 49ers' best chance at a title may have passed

By David Bonilla
May 15

Steve Young believes the San Francisco 49ers may have missed their best opportunity for the organization's sixth Super Bowl victory. It was an uphill battle for the 49ers in the playoffs, requiring two comeback victories against perceived weaker opponents before suffering an overtime defeat in Las Vegas against the Kansas City Chiefs. For various reasons, the Hall of Fame quarterback feels that it was head coach Kyle Shanahan's best opportunity to silence his critics and finally emerge victorious in the NFL title game. Now, it's too early to predict how the 2024 season will unfold. The Niners could be just as competitive as last season. They might find themselves at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, on Sunday, February 9, 2025, competing against
