Round 7, Pick No. 255 Overall: 49ers select RB Mohamed Ibrahim
Running backs Elijah Mitchell and Christian McCaffrey get the majority of the reps on the team, and with Tyrion Davis-Price and Jordan Mason returning, it’s a crowded backfield.
However, Mohamed Ibrahim out of Minnesota played in the Big Ten Conference and still managed to rush for over 1,600 yards while averaging 5.3 yards per carry. Even more impressive than that, he rushed 19 touchdowns in his final year for the Golden Gophers.
That alone deserves a look.

Mitchell and McCaffrey need not worry about their jobs, but Mason and TDP are officially on notice.
Considering how quickly the Niners have gone through running backs over the years, fueling the back end of the pipeline is never a bad idea and strategy.
