Here’s a mock that reflects the offense-heavy approach the 49ers may take during the upcoming draft.
Round 1, pick No. 7: Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State
A better athlete and a better run-blocker than Notre Dame tackle Ronnie Stanley, who’s a finesse player best-suited for a pass-first team.
Round 2, pick No. 37: Tyler Boyd, WR, Pittsburgh
Has the size, speed, hands, agility, punt-return experience and collegiate production Chip Kelly wants from a flanker.
Round 3, pick Nick No. 68: Nick Vannett, TE, Ohio State
Kelly’s offense needs a quality move tight end, something the Niners haven’t had since Delanie Walker signed with Tennessee in 2013. Nick Vannett can move – he came to Ohio State as a wide receiver. He also blocks extremely well.
Round 4, pick No. 105: Nick Vigil, ILB, Utah State (No. 41 in the video below)
Starts at inside linebacker next to NaVorro Bowman Week 1.
Round 4, pick No. 133: Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State
Fits Kelly’s zone-read spread offense. A big, tough, agile runner who made tremendous strides as a passer in 2015.
Round 5, pick No. 142: Sean Davis, FS, Maryland
Another free safety just in case Eric Reid suffers another concussion or becomes a safety-first player.
Round 5, pick No. 145: Dadi Nicolas, OLB, Virginia Tech (No. 90 in the video below)
An explosive speed-rusher with long arms who recorded 8.5 sacks and 18 TFLs in 2014. Played through hand injuries in 2015.
Round 5, pick No. 174: Josh Ferguson, RB, Illinois
A third-down back who can catch the ball and score from anywhere on the field.
Round 6, pick No. 178: De’Runnya Wilson, WR, Mississippi State
Prescott’s favorite receiver in college. Wilson has the height, weight and collegiate production both down field and in the red zone Kelly wants from a split end.
Round 6, pick No. 207: LeShaun Sims, CB, Southern Utah
A small-school press corner who ran a 4.48 40-yard dash at the Combine, according to Tony Pauline.
Round 6, pick No. 211: Mike Rose, OLB, North Carolina State (No. 90 in the video below)
A 261-pound edge-rusher who ran a 4.66 40 at his Pro Day and registered nine sacks last season.
Round 6, pick No. 213: Vincent Valentine, NT, Nebraska (No. 98 in the video below)
Another nose tackle just in case Ian Williams and/or Glenn Dorsey miss games due to injury.
