With the 2020 NFL Draft fast approaching, the San Francisco 49ers will be seeing some changes made to their offensive lineup. Niner Noise predicts how the offense could look in 2020.
The San Francisco 49ers weren’t huge players on the NFL free agency market, but they weren’t expected to be either.
With the biggest priority being a contract extension for defensive tackle Arik Armstead and an upcoming extension for tight end George Kittle, the Niners’ main move was to ship star defensive tackle DeForest Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts for pick No. 13 in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The 49ers, however, have lost some starters on the offensive front. Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders didn’t stay long with San Francisco after choosing to sign with the New Orleans Saints during the offseason, while starting right guard Mike Person was released for salary cap reasons.
With two Round 1 picks to use on Thursday night, at least one of them should be used on the offensive front. Even if it wasn’t, the losses on the offensive side of the ball ensures the team will look slightly different when it lines up next this fall.
With under a month to go until the NFL Draft commences, it’s time to take a look at predicting what the 49ers offensive lineup will look like in 2020.
Along with players already on the roster, potential draftees will be considered.
With that in mind, let’s take a look.
