49ers target: Ricky Stromberg, Center, Arkansas
Draft range: 4th-6th round
While San Francisco has the interior line all tied up for now, it’ll probably look to add one or two depth pieces via the draft. Ricky Stromberg has been a very solid center for Arkansas and could be a good value selection who could start sooner rather than later if needed.
A versatile player who can also play guard, Stromberg isn’t the most gifted, athletically, in the draft. But he has a good body of work coming into the NFL.
He’s got a big frame for a center at 6-foot-4 and 318 pounds, and he’s strong enough to start immediately if need be. He played a high caliber of opponents in the SEC, so you know he has the ability to take on strong defenders (although he did have some issues against elite defensive linemen in 2022).

Stromberg is a good person to have on the roster, and the 49ers will be doing their due diligence on this versatile lineman.
