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 6, Pick No. 211 overall: 49ers select running back Frank Gore Jr., Southern Mississippi

Running Back. . Frank Gore Jr.. Frank Gore Jr.. 211. player. 2278. Scouting Report. . Frank Gore Jr.

Perhaps it's nepotism. Perhaps it's sentimentality.

But, knowing running back Frank Gore Jr. of Southern Mississippi is the son of the greatest Niners rusher in franchise history has to carry some weight.

True, San Francisco just grabbed one halfback in this mock a pick earlier. But, with Elijah Mitchell's injury history and Jordan Mason being more of an "OK" tailback than anything else, doubling down and grabbing some solid depth makes sense here.

Gore boasted over 4,000 rush yards and 26 touchdowns while averaging 5.3 yards per attempt for the Golden Eagles over the last four years, so it's not like this is a gimmick pick.

If the younger Gore winds up being even just a shadow of his father, the 49ers would have some excellent insurance for Christian McCaffrey.

Round 6, Pick No. 215 overall: 49ers select center Tanor Bortolini, Wisconsin

player. Center. Tanor Bortolini. Scouting Report. Tanor Bortolini. . Tanor Bortolini. 215. 493.

It's good this year's NFL Draft class is awfully deep with offensive linemen, and few would complain if the Niners added three to the fray.

Wisconsin has a long history of sending pro-level top-quality linemen to the NFL, and center Tanor Bortolini could easily be the next in that notable line. While he doesn't quite have the pedigree of other top-drafted linemen in this year's class, he's versatile in scheme and can play both center and guard positions.

Right away, Bortolini could serve as a primary interior backup with the long-term shot of replacing incumbent center Jake Brendel.
