The 49ers are scheduled to have two picks on the day.
General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke to the media after making the pick on Thursday and said they zeroed in on the North Dakota State product on Monday.
Despite all the outside noise, the Niners passed up on Alabama’s Mac Jones, who fell to the New England Patriots at No. 15. Some draft pundits had San Francisco going with Ohio State’s Justin Fields, but he wound up going 11th overall to the Chicago Bears.
Now that the QB selection is out of the way, the focus shifts to the Niners’ remaining picks. Despite having a strong roster, the team still has a few positions it needs to address. The first area is the secondary. With veterans Jason Verrett, Jaquiski Tartt and K’Waun Williams on one-year deals, Lynch and Shanahan will likely look to add a cornerback and safety at some point over the next two days.
