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.

Daniel Jeremiah has 49ers addressing O-line in latest mock draft

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers have some weak points along the offensive line. It's tough to dispute that. Three of the team's starters—Jake Brendel, Colton McKivitz, and Aaron Banks—received overall Pro Football Focus grades under 70.0. Clearly, this is an area that could use improvement during the offseason. NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah proposes just that in his latest mock draft, predicting the 49ers will select offensive lineman Graham Barton out of Duke with the No. 31 overall pick. "A left tackle at Duke, Barton would slide inside to guard and has the athleticism to do all that is required in Kyle Shanahan's

It's mock draft season, and the San Francisco 49ers have a few areas that must be addressed in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft. Below are my projections for the team's selections, utilizing Pro Football Focus' mock draft simulator. Round 1, Pick 31 Tyler Guyton - Right Tackle - Oklahoma Although Guyton is raw, he has good footwork and power to dominate in pass protection and run blocking. In 2023, Guyton gave up zero sacks and 12 total pressures. He can play both left and right tackle. Round 2, Pick 63 Christian Haynes - Right Guard- UCONN Haynes is a powerful guard who moves off the ball quickly. He's only allowed 48 pressures in five seasons with the Huskies. Eight of the pressures were sacks. Haynes would

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah recently unveiled his updated mock draft, pinpointing the San Francisco 49ers' offensive line as an area for improvement. In his draft scenario, Jeremiah projects the 49ers selecting former Duke left tackle Graham Barton, envisioning a transition to guard in Kyle Shanahan's offensive scheme. However, some have questioned whether Barton warrants a first-round selection. On Thursday, Jeremiah addressed these concerns in a conference call with reporters, defending his choice of Barton within his mock

John Lynch says Brock Purdy has given 49ers stability at QB

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers finally have stability at the quarterback position. And it's been a while coming. Three years ago, the team was on the verge of making a major trade for the chance to draft Trey Lance, who they hoped would be the QB they had been waiting on. They needed to find a new quarterback because of the lack of stability at the position, primarily due to the number of games starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo seemed to miss most seasons. But after watching Lance for some time, questions began to arise as to whether or not he could be the quarterback they drafted him to be. And after he and Garoppolo both were lost to injury in 2022, Brock Purdy, the barely-drafted seventh-rounder came in and saved the season, leading the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game. But a torn
