As the season moves into the latter stages, NFL Draft position starts to mean a lot to teams not making the playoffs. Here’s a mock for the San Francisco 49ers’ picks, which include No. 1 overall for 2019.
There’s one huge question facing the San Francisco 49ers.
Do they trade the high first-round pick (currently at No. 1) for more NFL Draft capital, or do they take their pick of the 2019 draft right out of the gate when their number is called? There are going to be a number of quarterback-needy teams in a a QB-thin draft class, and the Niners could ask for a king’s ransom by moving out of a top pick.
Then again, staying put and grabbing what likely winds up being a top-three player has its merits too.
Of special significance is the 49ers currently possess only five selections.
That’s a question for another day, however. For the purposes of this mock, the 49ers will keep their five selections (the 49ers do not have a selection in the fifth or seventh rounds of the draft).
This is currently how I envision the draft might go for the 49ers.
