Let’s assume for a moment the 49ers select Saahdiq Charles earlier in the draft, and he projects to be a viable swing-tackle option his rookie season.
The Niners would also need some reinforcements along the interior of line, and some developmental prospects would be worth looking at here.
Last season, offensive tackle Tremayne Anchrum was the Clemson Tigers’ top offensive lineman, who was a big part of his team’s rise to the national championship game. He was excellent in pass protection, which is something the Niners would like to have even though Kyle Shanahan has built his O-line around run support first.
At 6-foot-2 and 310 pounds, there are going to be concerns about Anchrum’s size and how well he’ll handle bigger, more versatile pass-rushers at the pro level. As such, despite playing tackle at the collegiate level, his true fit in the NFL will probably be on the inside.
But as far as a less-heralded talent with a lot of upside, Anchrum would be worth taking a flier on in Round 7.
