Daniel Jeremiah Pinpoints Two Players 49ers Can Target Early in Draft

Following last year's decision to move up nine spots to ultimately select quarterback Trey Lance, the San Francisco 49ers are currently preparing for this year's NFL Draft void of a first-round selection.

This marks the first time since 1996 that the 49ers are not scheduled to make a first-round selection, dating back to when San Francisco traded its 1995 first-, third- and fourth-round picks and a 1996 first rounder to the Cleveland Browns for a 1995 first-round selection that went to drafting wide receiver J.J. Stokes with the 10th-overall pick.

As it stands now heading into the 2022 NFL Draft, the 49ers won't make their first pick until midway through the second round. However, NFL analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes there are a lot of quality starters beyond the first 32 picks, including two target areas for the 49ers come April: cornerback and offensive line.
