It's officially draft season for the San Francisco 49ers. There are still more than three months until San Francisco goes on the clock in the 2017 NFL Draft with the No. 2 overall pick, but the first wave of mock drafts are already circulating the World Wide Web.

From now until April 27, we'll have wall-to-wall draft coverage right here on 49ers.com.

Let's begin with some expert predictions for who the 49ers could take with the second selection.

Of note, North Carolina's quarterback Mitch Trubisky declared for the draft on Monday via The Players Tribune. Trubisky is considered one of the top passers in this year's draft and is a popular choice to the 49ers at No. 2 in mock drafts.

Matt Miller, Bleacher Report: Trubisky

Dane Brugler, CBS Sports: Trubisky

"Despite only one season of starting experience, Trubisky has all the traits to be a successful NFL starter."

Rob Rang, CBS Sports: Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M

"Garrett projects to a stand-up edge rusher in the 49ers' scheme and would complement recent early first-round picks on Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner."

Emily Kaplan, Sports Illustrated: Trubisky

"Trubisky, a junior with only one season as a starter in college, is not as polished as Jared Goff or Carson Wentz were at this point last year. But he has enough good traits (among his best: accuracy and arm strength) to get excited about."

Chris Burke, Sports Illustrated: DeShaun Watson, QB, Clemson

"He has an outstanding arm—an element of his game that somehow has become underrated—plus the athleticism and experience to put him ahead of the curve."

Jason McIntyre, The Big Lead: Watson

"In the right NFL system, I think Watson will be a very good pro."

Dan Kadar, SB Nation: Trubisky

"With the 49ers at the start of a rebuild, that begins with a quarterback."

Walter Cherepinsky, WalterFootball.com: DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame

"Teams like Kizer because of his arm strength, mobility and upside."

Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com: Kizer

"The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder has a strong arm that can make all the throws for the NFL. He has also flashed superb accuracy and an ability to make accurate touch passes downfield to beat good coverage in tight windows."

Eddie Brown, San Diego Tribune: Jonathan Allen, DL, Alabama

"He’s developed into a one-man wrecking-crew who can dominate either inside or outside."

Justis Mosqueda, Bleacher Report: Allen

"Allen is about as close to a safe bet as you're going to get."

Joe Marino, Fan Rag Sports: Watson

"Watson will enter the league with a plethora of starting experience in college football’s biggest stages, making him a candidate to be a day-one starter."
