- Updated: Monday, April 24th

On this page, you will find all of our picks for the San Francisco 49ers in the 2017 NFL Mock Draft from Kevin Hanson.


Here are the picks in our 2017 NFL Mock Draft for the 49ers:

PickOverallProspect
1.022Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford
“There’s the traditional trade chart, (and) we’ve got one of our own,” [GM John] Lynch said. “I think we know how we value that (pick). As I’ve said, we’re open for business. We’d listen to anything. But, I’ve always said you don’t like being 2-14, but you like having the second pick. I think it puts you in the driver’s seat with a lot of options at your disposal and we’ll explore every single one of them.”

If the 49ers stay put and are unable to find a trade partner to move back, this pick likely comes down to Thomas or one of the top-three defensive backs -- safeties Jamal Adams and Malik Hooker and cornerback Marshon Lattimore. Considering the potential for Kirk Cousins to call the Bay area his home this time next year, I wouldn't expect the the 49ers to use a top-two pick on a quarterback even though they currently go into the season with backup-caliber quarterbacks Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley atop the depth chart.

Even though the 49ers (albeit Trent Baalke) have selected defensive linemen with back-to-back first-round picks in 2015 (Arik Armstead) and 2016 (DeForest Buckner), they aren't exactly ideal fits in the team's new defensive scheme. Meanwhile, Thomas has outstanding quickness and strength and a tireless motor that warrants a selection this high in the 2017 draft.


2.0234Tre'Davious White, CB, LSU
Especially if the 49ers don't select a defensive back with the second overall pick (even though it's something they will/should strongly consider), the 49ers could look in that direction here. In almost of all of the previous versions of my mock draft, White has been a first-round selection. Given the depth at the position, however, there will be a few corners available here that would typically be selected in Round 1 in other years. White possesses outstanding cover skills and was essentially a four-year starter at "DBU."

3.0266Nathan Peterman, QB, Pittsburgh
4.02109Taywan Taylor, WR, Western Kentucky
4.36143David Sharpe, OT, Florida
5.02146Delano Hill, S, Michigan
