How will the 49ers handle the No. 2 pick? Read more
Will the San Francisco 49ers take Stanford DL Solomon Thomas or North Colina QB Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 pick? San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has made his intentions clear when it comes to how the team will handle the first round of the NFL Draft.
With the No. 2 pick slated to be announced shortly after 5 p.m. on Thursday, the Niners will either land a “cornerstone” for the future of the franchise or trade their selection.
On the in-studio debut of Bay Area Sports Insiders, Courtney Cronin and 49ers beat writer Cam Inman discuss various scenarios for San Francisco’s first round pick, including whether the Niners will look to Stanford defensive end Solomon Thomas, select Mitchell Trubisky as their quarterback of the future or shop their No. 2 selection and look elsewhere for a best value.
Also discussed is the 49ers plan to find help for Carlos Hyde, where Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey and LSU’s Leonard Fournette fall into the mix at running back and how the team will address finding another starting cornerback for the 2017 season.
