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.

Everyone is trying to figure out what the San Francisco 49ers will do with the No. 3 overall draft pick. Last week, they moved into that slot via a blockbuster and draft-altering trade with the Miami Dolphins. ESPN analyst Todd McShay released his latest mock draft, this one of the two-round variety, and has quarterbacks Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson going to the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets, respectively, with the first two selections. San Francisco is also expected to select its quarterback of the future and will likely have its choice of Justin Fields, Trey Lance,



Tannenbaum sees Mac Jones as 'very similar' to Matt Ryan, has QB to 49ers in mock draft

Yet another mock draft has the San Francisco 49ers selecting former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones with the No. 3 overall pick. This one from ESPN's Mike Tannenbaum is a bit different, though. While some analysts feel that Jones-to-49ers is the most likely scenario, many feel that the selection would be a reach, especially with potentially higher-ceiling prospects Justin Fields and Trey Lance likely to still be on the board. The latest ESPN mock draft has Tannenbaum, a former NFL executive, playing the role of general manager for all 32 teams and choosing the players he feels are the best fit for

While the rest of the media believes that the New York Jets drafting quarterback Zach Wilson of BYU to be a near-certainty, Seth Galina of Pro Football Focus doesn't sound too convinced of that. The analyst feels there may be a smokescreen in play, masking New York's true target—Justin Fields of Ohio State. Galina took a look at the NFC West and created a mock draft for the entire division. In it, he has the Jets taking Fields, and Wilson falling to the No. 3 spot, where San Francisco pounces. "There is a very real chance that we have been fed and will continue to be fed the proverbial



Silver: Some believe 49ers could draft Justin Fields, taking Shanahan's offense to 'another dimension'

As is the case with many analysts, NFL Network's Marc Ross sees Justin Fields of Ohio State as the better prospect when compared to Mac Jones of Alabama. The former Buckeye will hold a second pro day next week, but Ross feels the quarterback has already shown everything he needs to show to NFL teams. "If teams, right now, are still trying to figure out if Justin Fields is the guy, then they've already missed the evaluation, or he's not their guy," Ross told Andrew Siciliano, Bucky Brooks, and Mike Silver on NFL Network. Ross notes that with teams likely already having all of the information they need on the quarterback prospects, it is admirable that Fields is holding another pro day when he has little to gain. "This is just him being a competitor
