49ers focus on offense in our latest 7-round mock NFL Draft

It's my first mock NFL Draft for the Niners in a while, so bear with me.

And it's very offensive-centric.

Round 4, Pick No. 124 overall (from Cowboys): 49ers select offensive guard Cooper Beebe, Kansas State

Waiting until Round 4 to pick, using the selection received after trading quarterback Trey Lance to the Dallas Cowboys, the 49ers continue to reinforce their O-line by looking for a long-term upgrade at right guard.

Spencer Burford has underwhelmed, and veteran Jon Feliciano is back on a one-year deal and hinted at retirement after 2024 anyway.

Enter Kansas State's Cooper Beebe.

Beebe, 6-foot-3 and 322 pounds, would follow the trend of head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense going from a strictly zone-style blocking scheme to more of a power offense in recent years. Plus, Beebe holds up well in pass protection and doesn't lack for strength.

He could easily end up being a day-one starter, too.

Round 4, Pick No. 135 overall: 49ers select tight end Ben Sinnott, Kansas State

Another year, another chance for Shanahan to try and find a worthy backup tight end to support the All-Pro, George Kittle.

Charlie Woerner is gone via free agency, while veteran Ross Dwelley remains unsigned. That'd leave the Niners with an unproven Cameron Latu and Brayden Willis on the depth chart, and neither should inspire a ton of confidence.

While Kansas State's Ben Sinnott isn't much of an inline blocker, he does perform these duties well out in space. With 676 receiving yards and six touchdowns last year for the Wildcats, he's a solid route-runner who does well to create yards after the catch.

At his best, it's possible Sinnott winds up being a long-term option to eventually replace the aging Kittle.
