Draft season has returned, and with that comes the waves and waves of mock drafts that will dominate water cooler conversations for the next few months. The San Francisco 49ers own the second pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and will have their pick at several blue chip prospects in this year's draft class. There's also the chance that a team falls in love with Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins or another quarterback and makes a move to trade up to the No. 2 spot.
Here's a look at 10 predictions with what draft analysts think the 49ers will do in the first round.
Dane Brugler, The Athletic: Quinnin Williams, DL, Alabama
"Ideally, the 49ers will be targeting an edge rusher with this pick, but Williams’ ability to create interior disruption will make him tough to pass up. At such a young age, he shows the unique ability to interchangeably use his gifts to defeat blocks and live in the opponent’s backfield. With high draft picks, the goal should be to find impact players and Williams is special — the 49ers shouldn’t overthink it."
Benjamin Solak, The Draft Network: Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State
"Bosa brings starting potential in Year 1 and will have the early odds for DROY — ton of polish to his game. I’m a little curious about his Combine 3-cone, though."
Rob Rang, NFLdraftscout.com: Bosa
"Bosa is the spittin' image of his older brother, Joey, which is to say that he's a future Pro Bowl edge rusher. He's all the more likely to live up to his talent playing opposite a rising star in DeForest Buckner."
Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports: Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson
(Mock trade with Jacksonville Jaguars, dropping 49ers to pick No. 7)
"Ferrell was one of the stars of the best defensive line in college football, and he finished his junior season with 11.5 sacks and 20 tackles for loss. There may be questions about Ferrell's flexibility compared to the other first-round pass rushers but there's no denying his Clemson production."
Chris Trapasso, CBS Sports: Ferrell
"Ferrell had a fine 2018 season and was unstoppable in the College Football Playoff. He has the size, athleticism, and developed arsenal of pass-rushing moves to be an All-Pro."
Dan Kadar, SB Nation: Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky
"Getting a player who can pressure the quarterback is the team’s top draft need."
Matt Miller, Bleacher Report: Allen
"Kentucky's Josh Allen dominated the SEC this season with 18.5 tackles for a loss and 14 sacks while showing the length, burst and power on a 6'5", 260-pound frame that will get scouts excited."
Tim Daniels, Bleacher Report: Allen
"Allen, who had 14 sacks over the previous two seasons, finished his breakout 2018 campaign with 88 total tackles, 17 sacks, five forced fumbles and four passes defended."
Trevor Sikkema, The Draft Network: Bosa
