San Francisco 49ers Mock Draft Monday 3.0

Take a look at some of the names being associated with San Francisco's seventh-overall pick.

The next two weeks will be very intriguing in terms of mock drafts. All of the premier draft analysts will be in Indianapolis this week for the NFL Scouting Combine in order to evaluate this year's top prospects. That will make it interesting to compare their pre-combine predictions compiled in this article, to their updated mock drafts next week.

Here are the latest forecasts for who the San Francisco 49ers might take with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Mel Kiper, ESPN: Myles Jack, LB, UCLA

"The 49ers had their linebacking corps diminished before the season even started in 2015, and Jack -- who will be 100 percent even though he's not a full workout participant at the NFL combine -- gives them immediate help as a gifted linebacker who can cover as well as a good safety."

Todd McShay, ESPN: Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss

Treadwell is this draft's clear-cut top wide receiver. He might not blaze a 4.3 40 at the combine, but he's a legit difference-maker at every level of the field. Treadwell reminds me a lot of Dez Bryant physically when he was coming out of Oklahoma State. This is a big, strong receiver with a very good combination of athletic ability, body control and ball skills.

Matt Miller, Bleacher Report: Jared Goff, QB, California

Daniel Jeremiah, Goff

Bucky Brooks, Ronnie Stanley, T, Notre Dame

"Grabbing a franchise quarterback is an option, but adding an athletic tackle with solid movement skills could be a better play for the 49ers as they transform into a spread offensive attack."

Lance Zierlein, Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis

"While I don't believe that most would put Lynch here, Chip Kelly's offense has never been fully realized since he's been in the league and Lynch, with his size and athleticism, would be an ideal trigger-man for the future."

Chad Reuter, Treadwell

"Chip Kelly finds a superstar in Treadwell to help out Colin Kaepernick return to his early career form -- or, maybe aid Blaine Gabbert in revitalizing his career, as Kelly planned to do with Sam Bradford in Philadelphia."

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports: Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State

"The 49ers get a mobile player who can excel in the pocket in Chip Kelly's offense."

Dane Brugler, CBS Sports: Goff

"Many assume Chip Kelly desires a mobile quarterback, but the most important trait to run his offense is a quick mental processor, which fits Goff, who also happens to be a Bay Area native."

Rob Rang, CBS Sports: Goff

"Most important to Kelly's scheme is anticipation and accuracy - two of Goff's best attributes."

Peter Schrager, Fox Sports: Joey Bosa, Edge-Rusher, Ohio State

"He's got an incredible first step, comes from a football family and would make an immediate impact for the 49ers defense."

Josh Norris, Treadwell

"I rank Treadwell as a top-five prospect in this class and think much of the criticism around him is nitpicking. Treadwell is an ultra-physical receiver both before and after the catch. It might not matter for many, but receiver coaches will love his blocking intensity. The 49ers need foundation pieces on offense, and Treadwell can be that."

Eric Edholm, Yahoo Sports: Jack

"Jack's a rare specimen — injury concerns notwithstanding — who can upgrade the third-down defense immediately."

Dan Kadar, SB Nation: Wentz

"San Francisco is expected to take a quarterback in this year's draft, so they may as well try and get one of the franchise players. That can be Wentz, a big-armed and athletic signal caller."
