With the NFL Scouting Combine wrapping up, Niner Noise runs through another 49ers mock draft as the team looks to go one better in 2024 and win their sixth Super Bowl.

For us draft nerds, the NFL Scouting Combine is always good fun. Whether it's a prospect who helps themselves immensely or a player who's torpedoed his draft stock to the point where it might have been better to stay home.

And sometimes, there's just the bizarre.

I mean, seriously, there was a player who stood right up to the cameras and said he doesn't believe in space or planets.

I have been on this planet for 30 years, and I can guarantee that I don't think I will see a more confusing interview.

But back to the San Francisco 49ers.

For this mock draft, just a few house rules. We aren't doing trades (yet), and we'll go really in-depth for Round 1, some decent-sized profiles for the Day 2 picks and then we'll blow by the Day 3 picks with a touch less information.

But we'll give you a rundown on their fit, their collegiate career, and (if applicable), their NFL Combine performance.

49ers pick at No. 31 overall: OT Jordan Morgan, Arizona

Offensive linemen aren't flashy picks, but that won't stop me once again from selecting Jordan Morgan on behalf of the 49ers.

Morgan might not play for a powerhouse school, but he had an excellent season with only one sack allowed for the Wildcats.

His school measurements are at 6-foot-4 and 312 pounds, so it'll be interesting to see how his measurables compare because of his short arms, but he's the perfect player who can start right away at right tackle and then move over the blindside when Trent Williams retires.

Short arms can be mitigated by good technique, which is what Morgan brings to the table. He's not a power blocker, but he's a good enough athlete to get around this by getting to the right positions. He gets to the second level well on running plays, and a pass-rusher will have problems using speed or leverage to get by him.

Where Morgan falls flat when it comes to being considered one of the top tackles in this class is the aforementioned lack of physicality. Morgan could stand to get stronger for the NFL and to develop a mean streak, but that can come with time and having Williams mentor him. All the tools are there, and he can still be a Week 1 starter in 2024.

The 49ers should feel very blessed that the biggest hole on their roster happens to be the biggest strength of this class. Most drafts wouldn't have Day 1 starters at tackle this late, but this year happens to be the exception.
