Mock Draft 2.0: Multiple trades help 49ers address several key needs
It’s mock draft season. This mock draft was created using The Draft Network’s simulator. I expect the 49ers to be aggressive in the 2022 NFL Draft, so I was aggressive by trading three times to help the 49ers get the best value from their draft picks. The 49ers put together a solid free agency to set themselves up to draft the best player available. With nine selections in the upcoming, the 49ers could look a lot different going into 2022. Disclaimer: The Draft Network doesn’t properly list the 49ers’ later draft selections and doesn’t have the team initially owning
How should the 49ers address WR in the draft with the Deebo Samuel news?
By Rohan Chakravarthi
Earlier Wednesday, ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reported that Deebo Samuel has requested a trade from the 49ers, indicating a significant difference between the two sides in extension talks. A source later confirmed that Samuel’s trade request came on approximately April 6th, making sense of why Samuel has been “unwilling to engage” in trade talks recently. Without an immediate resolution, and with the draft just nine days away, how should the 49ers address the receiver position in the draft in light of recent news?

Should the 49ers address RB in the draft?

Last offseason, despite carrying four running backs on the roster heading into the draft, the 49ers selected not one, but two running backs in the draft, taking Ohio State running back Trey Sermon and Louisiana running back Elijah Mitchell. It’s fair to say that they hit on the latter pick, as Mitchell had 207 carries for 963 yards in his rookie season, despite playing in just 11 games. Now, one year later, the 49ers are in a similar predicament, holding four running backs currently on the roster: Mitchell, Sermon, Jeff Wilson Jr., and JaMycal Hasty. With another talented running back class, should the 49ers address the position in the draft? If they choose to, I’d expect it to be in the later rounds, but wouldn’t be surprised if the
Deebo Samuel says 49ers fans sending death threats and racist remarks
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel wants his contract extension finalized. The team would likely love to get the situation resolved. Most fans want to see the dynamic playmaker remain in the Bay Area for a long time. However, Samuel is claiming that the situation has escalated to embarrassing levels. He says that fans are saying some pretty hateful things to him. If true—and there is no reason to believe it isn’t—this has gotten very ugly. Samuel says he has received death threats and racist remarks from the fans who once cheered for him. “It don’t bother me,” Samuel said via Instagram Live (h/t TheSFNiners). “It don’t. You all were the same ones that was just hoorahing and [yelling] ‘Go Deebo.’ Now you all want to send death threats and
