Let’s review the 49ers’ nine draft selections in the 2022 NFL Draft and predict each rookie’s potential role and impact for the 2022 NFL season.
The San Francisco 49ers decided to make nine selections in the 2022 NFL Draft, adding depth and addressing the holes on the roster that general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan admitted were there entering the offseason.
Granted, the Niners didn’t have too many holes on the roster heading into draft season, but they did add needed depth to a championship-caliber roster.
