Who the 49ers selected in ESPN’s 7-round mock draft

    Kudos to anyone who compiles a seven-round mock draft for the entire league. It’s an extensive endeavor, and draft analyst Matt Miller recently took on this challenge in a feature for ESPN. He projected 257 selections, with the San Francisco 49ers holding 10.

    Miller provided explanations for each pick in the first three rounds and shared his favorite selection for the remainder of the draft.

    So, who does Miller envision joining the 49ers’ newest rookie class? Let’s delve into his ideal scenario for the Bay Area team in the 2024 NFL Draft.

    Round 1, Pick 31 Overall

    Jordan Morgan, G/OT, Arizona

    Morgan is a popular choice for the 49ers in mock drafts, and Miller believes the offensive lineman is a perfect fit. With the team concentrating on defense during free agency, San Francisco is anticipated to address its offensive line issues in the draft.

    “The 49ers were active in free agency, but they didn’t do much regarding the offensive line, which struggled throughout the postseason,” Miller wrote. “To me, that signals that the front office sees the draft class as a good opportunity to build there. Morgan played left tackle at Arizona, but he is seen by scouts as a potential guard at the next level. He has 37 games of experience and is a great mover in space. Morgan is a plug-and-play fit in the 49ers’ scheme.”

    Round 2, Pick 63

    Kris Jenkins, DT, Michigan

    After bolstering its defensive edges with Leonard Floyd and Yetur Gross-Matos in free agency, San Francisco looks to fortify the interior with its next pick.

    Arik Armstead was released in a salary cap-saving move, and while the 49ers did add Maliek Collins and Jordan Elliott, a true 3-technique rusher should be on the draft wish list behind offensive line help,” Miller wrote. “Jenkins is 6-3 and 299 pounds, and he ran a 4.91-second 40, showing his speed. But he is also one of the strongest defensive tackles in the class.”

    Round 3, Pick 94

    Zak Zinter, G, Michigan

    The 49ers continue shoring up their offensive line by addressing the interior.

    “Zinter has missed the pre-draft process with a leg injury, but his power in the run game and movement traits are exactly what the 49ers are lacking at right guard,” Miller wrote.

    Miller’s selections for the 49ers’ remaining seven picks are as follows. He has the team adding four players for the offensive side of the ball and three to the defense.

    Round 4, Pick 124

    Elijah Jones, CB, Boston College

    Round 4, Pick 132

    Curtis Jacobs, LB, Penn State

    Round 4, Pick 135

    Ben Sinnott, TE, Kansas State

    Round 5, Pick 176

    Malik Mustapha, S, Wake Forest

    Round 6, Pick 211

    Anthony Gould, WR, Oregon State

    Round 6, Pick 215

    Jase McClellan, RB, Alabama

    Round 7, Pick 251

    Nick Gargiulo, C, South Carolina
