San Francisco 49ers Mock Draft Monday 7.0

From Marshall Faulk to Carson Wentz, view images of every player selected with the second overall pick in the NFL Draft from 1990-2016.

We are now just three days away from the 2017 NFL Draft. With four months of waiting nearly over, it's time to take a look at the final round of expert predictions for the San Francisco 49ers No. 2 overall pick. Some took it a step further and projected multiple rounds of the draft.

Which analyst do you side with?

Bucky Brooks, Jamal Adams, S, LSU

"The 49ers snag a Ronnie Lott-like leader and playmaker with the second overall pick."

Danny Kelly, The Ringer: Solomon Thomas, DL, Stanford

"Thomas is an instant impact starter at that spot, and he's got the Michael Bennett–esque ability to bring pressure from the interior on third downs."

Dane Brugler, CBS Sports: Thomas

"Thomas is an excellent football player who adds immediate pass rush help on the defensive line."

Round 2, Pick 34 overall: Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama

Todd McShay, ESPN: Thomas

"Thomas has been in my top-five overall prospects from the moment I watched his tape. He's the total package, with the ideal combination of size, quickness and power."

Round 2, Pick 34 overall: Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson

Round 3, Pick 66 overall: Desmond King, DB, Iowa

Mel Kiper Jr., ESPN: Thomas

"He has double-digit sack potential and is a different player than the D-linemen the 49ers have taken in the first round the past two years."

Round 2, Pick 34 overall: Patrick Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech

Round 3, Pick 66 overall: Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida

Josh Norris, Thomas

"Thomas plays a possible cornerstone position in terms of rushing the passer from a variety of alignments. Add in youth and athleticism, and Thomas is very intriguing."

Round 2, Pick 34 overall: DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame

Round 3, Pick 66 overall: ArDarius Steward, WR, Alabama

Chris Collinsworth, Pro Football Focus: Thomas

"You can't go wrong with the work ethic of Thomas, though, and the Stanford connection doesn't hurt. A patient but solid pick."

Lance Zierlein, Thomas

"A non-stop motor and ability to play all over the defensive line makes Thomas a fit for the 49ers."

"Head coach Kyle Shanahan would enjoy coaching the North Carolina QB, but don't be surprised if some team (Jets? Browns?) explores a move up in a trade at this spot."

Adam Wells, Bleacher Report: Thomas

Rob Rang, CBS Sports: Thomas

"Thomas is a disrupting force who has drawn comparisons to Los Angeles Rams star Aaron Donald. He could be the perfect finishing touch for a defensive line currently better prepared to stuff the run than bother rival quarterbacks."

Charley Casserly, Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU

"Fournette is the second-best player in this draft."
