49ers three-round mock draft

Just a few days ago, the San Francisco 49ers owned just one selection in the first four rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft. Now the team has two first-round picks, and one of which will be traded for additional draft capital in our 49ers three-round mock draft:

Denver Broncos general manager John Elway contacts his good friend Lynch, and they work out the following deal: The 49ers exchange the No. 31 overall pick and a fifth-round selection for a second, third, and fourth-rounder from Denver.

Wide receiver. Jerry Jeudy. 13. player. 42. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Alabama

Aiming for a future No. 1 wide receiver with their lone first-round selection, the 49ers select Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy with the No. 13 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. At 6-foot-1 and 193 pounds, Judy has the frame necessary to play at the next level, and the ability to contribute on Day 1 thanks to his superior route-running ability and 4.45-second speed.

Other wide receivers who may be available in the top half of the first round are Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb and Judy’s college teammate Henry Ruggs III.

In the second round, the 49ers draft their cornerback of the future, Auburn’s Noah Igninoghene. Recruited by Auburn as a wide receiver, Igbninoghene switched to the defensive side of the ball in the middle of his freshman year, so it will likely take a full season before the corner will be ready to play against elite NFL talent.

Fellow former wideout Trevon Diggs from Alabama and Clemson’s A.J. Terrell are additional cornerback options who could be Day 1 picks or could slide into the second round of the draft.

Interior Offensive Lineman. 77. 42. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Wisconsin. Tyler Biadasz. player

With pick No. 77 in the 2020 NFL Draft, the 49ers select Washington interior offensive lineman Tyler Biadasz. With the Niners in need of a viable backup center given Richburg’s injury history, Biadasz fits the mold as a prospect who was one of the top college centers during his three years in college but can also play the guard position.

Additional options in the third round are Louisiana’s 6-foot-5, 336-pound tackle Robert Hunt, who plans to convert to guard, or potentially Temple’s versatile interior lineman Matt Hennessy. If the San Francisco 49ers don’t view the center position as an area of need, they could also wait until the fourth round, where they may find LSU’s Lloyd Cushenberry III.
