This is my first 49ers mock draft of the offseason, so I’m doing just the first four picks. Please leave your own mock draft in the comment section.
Note: These are the picks I think the 49ers will make, not necessarily the picks I would make if I were running the team.
Round 1, pick No. 7: Shaq Lawson, OLB, Clemson. Replaces Aldon Smith as the 49ers’ weak-side edge rusher and plays defensive end in the subpackages as a rookie. Becomes a full-time starting outside linebacker in Year 2.
Round 2, pick No. 37: Michael Thomas, WR, Ohio State. Immediately becomes Chip Kelly’s starting slot receiver. Think Jordan Matthews of the Eagles.
Round 3, pick No. 68: Spencer Drango, G, Baylor. Competes with Erik Pears for a starting job at right guard in 2016.
Round 4, pick No. 103: Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State. Thick, durable, athletic quarterback who ran the zone read in college.
