San Francisco 49ers Mock Draft Monday 6.0

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

There are just 10 days remaining until the 2016 NFL Draft. "Mock Draft Monday" gained plenty of intrigue last week following a blockbuster trade between the Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Rams.

The details of the deal are as follows: The Titans sent the Rams the No. 1 overall pick along with a fourth-rounder (No. 113) and a sixth-round pick (No. 177). In return, Los Angeles will give up its first-round pick (No. 15), two second-rounders (Nos. 43 and 45) and a third-round pick (No. 76). Additionally, the Titans will receive the Rams first- and third-round picks in 2017.

With that, here's the mock-draft fallout with a new team sitting at the top of the order. The following are expert predictions for how the San Francisco 49ers will use the seventh-overall pick.

Matt Miller, Bleacher Report: DeForest Buckner, DL, Oregon

"The 49ers miss out on the top two quarterbacks but land a blue-chip defensive lineman. It's Oregon Ducks in back-to-back first rounds for the Niners, but new head coach Chip Kelly won't mind that."

Daniel Jeremiah, Jared Goff, QB, California

Bucky Brooks, Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame

"They take Stanley and put him at right tackle to help the team get back to being solid up front."

Charles Davis, Buckner

"Buckner is an excellent prospect who has plenty of size, power and movement skills. Buckner uses his long arms to keep blockers at bay and to get upfield and make plays."

Charley Casserly, Stanley

"Tough choice with DeForest Buckner (DE) on the board, but OT is a greater need"

Lance Zierlein, Stanley

"The right tackle spot requires immediate help. Stanley would add terrific pass protection, as well as the type of athleticism that is a perfect fit for Chip Kelly's rushing attack."

Chad Reuter, Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis

"It will be tough for the Niners to pass on a mobile, strong-armed prospect like Lynch. Chip Kelly had a lot of success with Nick Foles in his early days with the Eagles, so there's no reason the same can't be had with Lynch."

Rob Rang, CBS Sports: Buckner

"The 49ers could opt to rebuild their once proud defense, pairing Buckner with Chip Kelly and his former Oregon teammate Arik Armstead, San Francisco's top pick a year ago. At 6-7, 290 pounds, Buckner is an ideal five-technique defensive end for San Francisco's scheme."

Dane Brugler, CBS Sports: Myles Jack, LB, UCLA

"There are several teams who will not consider Jack due to his knee injury, but there are also teams who will see the linebacker as worth the risk. And San Francisco might be one of those teams."

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports: Lynch

"I stay with a quarterback in this spot. Lynch is raw, but there is a lot to like. Once he fixes his footwork, he will be much better."

Will Brinson, CBS Sports: Buckner

"They can pair Buckner with Arik Armstead and hope the two defensive players from Oregon can develop together."

Sam Monson, Pro Football Focus: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss

"Tunsil is a player people were talking about No.1 overall before the Titans-Rams trade. He can start at RT from Day 1 and has the skills to become one of the league's best tackles."

Chris Burke, Sports Illustrated: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State

Eric Edholm, Yahoo Sports: Stanley

Dan Kadar, SB Nation: Buckner
