2022 Mock Draft Monday 4.0: Final Projections Before SF Takes the Stage
The San Francisco 49ers are only hours away from selecting the 61st-overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft and news updates from NFL analysts have been running wild.
"Because we're so far back, I think when you start talking about a draft that the volume of it is probably the strength, there's a good thought just to stay put and even go back and acquire more picks," John Lynch said. "It's going to be a little boring on Day 1. We're not used to that. We're used to having some action, and we'll see, that might happen again. But, otherwise, we'll kind of sit through and continue to work so that when we get to our pick, whenever that is, we're ready to make it the best move for the 49ers."
While San Francisco lacked a first round pick, the team owns nine-total selections, including three on Day 2.
With the 49ers first selection of the week coming tonight, we'll finally find out the direction Lynch and Co. take for the 2022 NFL Draft. Want to know who analysts think the team will take at No. 61? Here is the final installment of the 49ers Mock Draft Monday.
