SF 49ers post-Super Bowl 7-round mock NFL Draft
The SF 49ers head into the offseason with plenty of needs to fill and at least eight NFL Draft picks. Niner Noise takes a post-Super Bowl look at who they could draft in April.
With Super Bowl 55 over, the SF 49ers and the rest of the league are now fully entrenched in the offseason. This means that free agency is looming as well as the 2021 NFL Draft.
Coming off a 6-10 season, the Niners are currently slated to have the No. 12 overall pick in the first round and then seven additional selections, although there are at least two compensatory picks coming their way for the development of now-NY Jets head coach Robert Saleh and now-Washington general manager Martin Mayhew. The expectation is San Francisco will have at least 10 picks to start the draft.
Free agency will obviously alter the plans of the front office heading into the draft, which is scheduled to begin on April 29 and end on May 1 in Cleveland, although the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may force the league to go virtual again as they did last year.
But based on the current state of the SF 49ers roster, we can begin to formulate the draft needs the team will have, even if re-signing of players and bringing in new members to the roster may make them moveable as the offseason continues.
With that said, let’s build a potential draft class for the 2021 Niners based on the holes on the roster as they stand just days after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl win.
The mock was built using the NFL Mock Draft Database simulator and its consensus on picks as available. It only includes the picks as they stand now, which doesn’t yet include compensatory selections.
