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.
