NFL.com mock draft has 49ers taking a QB ... in the 4th round

Feb 18, 2016 at 12:02 PM--


A recent NFL.com mock draft has the San Francisco 49ers taking a quarterback, but not until the fourth round.

Chad Reuter, a draft analyst on the site, updated his mock draft to include the first four rounds for all 32 NFL teams. He had the following to say about the 2016 NFL Draft.

In the deepest draft in recent memory, late third and fourth-round selections are bound to make an early contribution to their new teams.

Earlier today, ESPN's Mel Kiper had the 49ers selecting talented UCLA linebacker Myles Jack. With the NFL season over and free agency looming, expect professional mock drafts to become more frequent. Even our own Alex Pedregon has published his first mock with Cal quarterback Jared Goff falling to San Francisco.

Back to Reuter's NFL.com four-round mock, here are his projected selections for the 49ers.

Round 1, Pick 7
Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss
The 49ers take a receiver early to help out whoever they go with at quarterback. Baalke has not had much luck drafting receivers, but gives it another shot.

Round 2, Pick 6
Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama
The 49ers shore up the defensive line with an elite run defender and space eater.

Round 3, Pick 5
Joshua Garnett, OG, Stanford
The 49ers do not address their offensive line problems until the third round by adding a powerful guard that will need to be coached up in pass blocking.

Round 4, Pick 8
Vernon Adams, Jr., QB, Oregon
49ers scouts spoke with Adams prior to the East-West Shrine Game. While viewed as undersized at 5'11", he impressed during the game.

Round 4, Pick 34
Cre'von LeBlanc, CB, Florida Atlantic
A projected compensatory selection for the loss of CB Chris Culliver last offseason.

During a weekend filled with thrilling Divisional Playoff finishes, the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs matchup stood out. It came down to overtime and a coin flip. Bills quarterback Josh Allen called tails. It ended up being his biggest mistake of the night because he was nearly flawless until that point, passing for 329 yards and four touchdowns. Calling heads gave the football to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense. Allen never returned to the field. In six plays, the Chiefs marched 75 yards down the field, ending the game with an eight-yard touchdown pass from Mahomes to tight end Travis Kelce. The game has sparked much debate from the media and fans, who feel that the outcome came down to the coin flip. With both teams so explosive to that point, you

One week after riding a remarkable comeback win over the Los Angeles Rams to a spot in the postseason, the San Francisco 49ers almost found themselves on the opposite side of the spectrum in Sunday's Wild Card showdown against the Dallas Cowboys. But after being in control for much of game before losing momentum in the fourth quarter, the 49ers were able to fight off a



DL Arden Key says coming to 49ers has exceeded expectations: 'I love it here'

It's not impossible to imagine a situation where the 49ers and defensive lineman Arden Key are unable to hammer out a new contract this offseason, but it won't be because Key isn't happy being a part of the organization. Key signed with the 49ers on a one-year deal in April after being let go by the Raiders, for whom he played three seasons after being selected as a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Key has voiced displeasure in the past about his time with the Raiders after posting just 37 tackles and three sacks over those three seasons, but he's had the exact opposite reaction about his time with the 49ers, which has seen him collect a career high 6.5 sacks and 17



The 49ers Secondary Has Evolved This Year. Will It Be Enough?

By JD Salazar
Jan 18

In the waning seconds of Week 3, Aaron Rodgers drove a dagger through the 49ers' secondary to secure a comeback win and expose San Francisco's vulnerable backfield. That loss sent the Niners careening towards a 2-4 record after an optimistic start, with opposing quarterbacks averaging a passer rating of nearly 110 during their losing skid. Even after that rough patch, the 49ers have continued to struggle against elite passers and receivers, like the Bengals victory in which Joe Burrow still hooked up with Tee Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase for a combined 191 yards and two touchdowns. But 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans has made savvy adjustments in the backfield, and with players like Emmanuel Moseley getting healthy, they may have a better shot this time
