Prospects way too good for 49ers to pass up at No. 31 (who aren't tackles)

An offensive tackle has been a very common position mocked to the 49ers at No. 31 in the draft, but what are some other prospects that might slide that should be under consideration?

San Francisco added Leonard Floyd to partner Nick Bosa, but we shouldn't at all be surprised if the team looks to add an understudy for the future. Penn State's Chop Robinson is an interesting prospect, slightly undersized at 6-foot-3 and 254 pounds but with excellent technique that will intrigue teams in a draft that isn't highly stocked with pass-rushers.

Robinson had four sacks for the year, which was a step down from his 5.5 sacks from 2022. This hasn't stopped teams falling in love with him, as he showed out his athletic potential at the NFL Combine.

It should also be noted that the four sack total doesn't reflect how well he played for Penn State as well.

Robinson might be slightly undersized, but makes up for it with a relentless motor that never takes plays off. He has a wickedly explosive first step off the line, and he has the strength to take offensive linemen by surprise.

Robinson could stand to improve his pass-rushing moves and tighten up a bit on run plays. It's also worth noticing that teams are also a bit concerned with his lack of production (if not his aforementioned motor), which is a key reason why he's buried a bit on the prospect list despite it not being a deep class for defensive linemen.
