After months and months of speculation, the 2017 NFL Draft is only a month away. Let’s be honest, fans of the San Francisco 49ers have been looking forward to April 27 pretty much since week two of the 2016 season. It is no secret that the 49ers are in the midst of a major rebuild, and though this can’t be done in one draft, a dent can certainly be made. The Niners need everything from a quarterback to offensive lineman to linebackers to, well, everything.
- our personal top picks at #2 and #34
- the variety of players and positions that make sense with the second pick
- the difference between this year’s draft and those of the past few years
- the excitement around seeing what John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan do
- the deficiencies in the 2016 49ers and what can be done about those in late April.
All in all, it should be a very interesting draft year for the Niners, and here’s hoping this team gets some upgrades.
