49ers Mock Drafts: DeForest Buckner, Ronnie Stanley stock jump

Apr 20, 2016 at 12:16 PM--


Many mock drafts hadn't even been updated yet following the Los Angeles Rams trade to the number one spot last week. Now, another trade occurred today that gave the Philadelphia Eagles the number two overall pick from the Cleveland Browns. These trades will take some time to trickle down to many of the mock drafts, especially the independent ones.

You can tell the massive impact the Rams trade has had on the mock drafts that have been updated. Some had the San Francisco 49ers trading up to move into a spot to get one of the two top quarterbacks in Cal's Jared Goff or North Dakota State's Carson Wentz. However, a good majority of them had the 49ers staying put at number seven, which is now the likely scenario since the Eagles-Browns trade.

Goff continues to lead mocks, but only because a good number of the mocks have not been updated following the Rams move, much less the Eagles move. Expect that number to continue to drop significantly over the next week.

PFF predicts Dre Greenlaw to be 49ers' 2020 breakout player

By David Bonilla
Sep 9, 2020

Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus went around the league and predicted one potential breakout player for each team during the 2020 season. For the San Francisco 49ers, he picked second-year linebacker Dre Greenlaw. Treash wrote the following of the selection: "Greenlaw surprised as a fifth-round rookie last year with how well he performed in Kwon Alexander's absence. He shined in coverage, posting a 72.6 grade in that facet throughout the 49ers' regular-season and postseason run (15th-best at the position). Greenlaw limits yards after the catch and has a clear nose for the ball. Including the postseason, he racked up 22 passing stops, which were the third-most at the position. He's already a top-25 linebacker in the NFL and is capable of

Simms picks 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa as potential NFL Defensive Player of the Year

By David Bonilla
Sep 9, 2020

Mike Florio, Peter King, and Chris Simms each made their predictions for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year for the 2020 season. The selection process was a little different, though. In a draft-style process, the trio each selected three players who could earn the award, creating a list of nine total candidates. King's first choice was Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle and two-time winner of the award Aaron Donald. With Donald off the board, Simms went with the San Francisco 49ers' young second-year pass rusher, Nick Bosa, as his first selection. "I'm going to go with Nick Bosa, 49ers, off the edge," Simms told Florio and King after stating that Donald may be too obvious a choice. "We know that defense is good. I expect them to be good. I'll go with Nick

Staying healthy the key to 49ers' Super Bowl hopes, says ESPN

By David Bonilla
Sep 9, 2020

Bill Barnwell of ESPN made a case for all 32 NFL teams to make it to Super Bowl LV. Yes, even the Jacksonville Jaguars, who, according to ESPN, have the lowest odds to get that far. The San Francisco 49ers were able to reach the big game last season, which surprised many analysts, and came close to winning it all. What is the key to the 49ers' Super Bowl hopes? Staying healthy. "To get back and over the top, they need quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to stay healthy and some of his receivers to join him," wrote Barnwell. "We already know how great the defensive line can be, but the 49ers' defense took a step
