No. 1: 49ers must find 2 starting O-linemen in 2024 NFL Draft

San Francisco's biggest overall weakness in 2024 was its offensive line, specifically the right side of it.

From center Jake Brendel to right tackle Colton McKivitz, each position could stand for an upgrade.

The good news? This year's NFL Draft is chock full of high-quality O-line prospects, and starting-caliber ones will be available at all positions from Round 1 all the way through day three.

It wouldn't be shocking to see the 49ers use three-plus picks on linemen, both to find starting options and to shore up the depth. As far as interior linemen go, Duke's Graham Barton or West Virginia's Zach Frazier could be excellent targets. For the tackles, Arizona's Jordan Morgan, BYU's Kingsley Suamataia or Oklahoma's Tyler Guyton could be first-round targets.

There are plenty of day-two options, too, highlighting the eliteness of this year's O-line class.

Hitting on just one of their O-line selections in the draft would help the 49ers immensely, but doing so twice would ensure another shot at the Super Bowl would be within reach.
