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.

John Lynch: 49ers learning from draft hits and misses; Aaron Banks, Ambry Thomas will contribute

By David Bonilla

A lot is riding on the selection of Trey Lance. The future of the San Francisco 49ers — and likely head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch — depends on the rookie quarterback developing into an impact player. The NFL Draft has seemingly been a crapshoot for the Niners. For every Nick Bosa, there is a Solomon Thomas or Reuben Foster. There have been George Kittles and Fred Warners. However, selections like Dante Pettis severely impact evaluations of recent draft classes. The jury is still out on last year's first-rounders, Javon Kinlaw and Brandon Aiyuk. The latter's lack of involvement this season has been baffling. The 49ers have hit



NFL Week 5: 49ers at Cardinals live updates

4th Quarter GAME ALERT: With the 17-10 win, the Cardinals will remain undefeated on the season, with the 49ers moving to 2-3 as they approach their bye week. QUARTER ALERT: At the 2-minute warning, the 49ers trail 17-10, as the Cardinals have a 1st & 10 at the 50-yard line, while the 49ers have no timeouts. James Conner gets a four-yard rush on 2nd & 2 to essentially put this game away for the Arizona Cardinals. SCORE ALERT: After failing to convert on 2nd and 3rd downs, the 49ers settles for a field goal on 4th down, bringing the game to 17-10 with 4:17 remaining in the 4th. After the touchdown, Trey Lance fires a bullet to Deebo Samuel, who makes the catch for



49ers-Cardinals: Players, coaches praise Trey Lance after first NFL start

By Kirk Larrabee

Trey Lance's first NFL start was far from perfect, but it was good enough to leave a positive impression on those who were playing with and against him on the field. Lance finished with 192 yards on 15-of-29 passing with zero touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, while also leading both teams in rushing with 16 carries for 89 yards. Following the game, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters he felt Lance played well overall despite the first quarter interception that the Cardinals turned into their first touchdown. "I thought he did some really good things," Shanahan said. "Definitely wasn't perfect, which no one ever has been. That first pick I thought just sailed on him. He was going to the right spot but it
