The San Francisco 49ers 2016 NFL Draft selections

Apr 30, 2016 at 3:53 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers addressed numerous positions in the 2016 NFL Draft. Six of their 11 selections were offensive players. On offense, they selected three offensive lineman, including two tackles, sending a strong statement to former 49ers OT Anthony Davis.

They also selected a wide receiver, a running back, and a quarterback. However, it wasn't any of the quarterbacks that were expected. Colin Kaepernick remains on the team and talks between the 49ers and the Broncos are reportedly dead now that Denver has rookie QB Paxton Lynch on their roster.

On defense, the 49ers addressed the defensive line by drafting two ends. They also selected three cornerbacks.

Former NFL QB explains why criticisms of Justin Fields, potential 49ers draft pick, are 'bogus'

By David Bonilla

"For Justin, this guy, Dr. Goldman, he's a sports psychologist; I talked to him yesterday," Sanchez said (h/t to Jordan Cohn of 95.7 The Game). "He has some interesting

PFF identifies Clemson RB Travis Etienne as a forward-thinking draft fit for 49ers

By David Bonilla
Mar 31, 2021

Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus went through all 32 NFL teams and tried to look one or two years in the future to project areas of need for each. Maybe a certain position group is considered among the team's strengths now, but will that be the case down the road? He then tried to find a good draft prospect—at a good value—to fill that potential need. "The respective prospect pairings for those teams all stand out as good value for where they would be selected," wrote Linsey, "and their selection would serve as a preventative measure to maintain strength at that position for years to come." For the San Francisco 49ers, it was the running
