Super Bowl LIII is in the books, and now the focus for the San Francisco 49ers is to wisely use their six picks in the upcoming 2019 NFL Draft. Here’s another mock for you!
The door is finally closed on the 2018-19 NFL season, and congratulations are in order to the Super Bowl LIII champion New England Patriots, who subsequently pushed the San Francisco 49ers into third place on the all-time list of Lombardi Trophies after besting the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Niners’ quest for six continues, and a big chunk of that quest will take place on April 25 when the 2019 NFL Draft kicks off.
San Francisco owns the No. 2 overall pick in the draft — the first of six total selections, including one compensatory, at general manager John Lynch’s disposal. The 49ers defense is likely to be the main focal point for Lynch and Co., and it’s a good thing this year’s draft class is deep with defensive talent.
It’s also good there are only a handful of NFL-ready quarterbacks and more QB-needy teams than there are prospects to select.
That could make the Niners’ top pick in the draft hold exceptional value, should another team make an offer Lynch can’t refuse.
Assuming he doesn’t trade down, though, what would a 49ers 2019 draft class look like?
Well, that’s why there are mock drafts. And with Super Bowl LIII now in the rear-view mirror, let’s help Lynch out with Niner Noise’s latest mock over all seven rounds.
Remember, no trades.
And after the Arizona Cardinals kick things off with the top pick, the Niners are officially on the clock.
