San Francisco 49ers 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our San Francisco 49ers Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the San Francisco 49ers from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the San Francisco 49ers, check out our 2021 San Francisco 49ers Mock Draft Database.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the 49ers:

Rotoworld - Thor Nystrom (8/21)

31. Paris Ford, S, Pittsburgh

The 49ers have needs at corner -- with Richard Sherman nearing retirement, Emmanuel Moseley set to be an exclusive rights free agent, and Ahkello Witherspoon remaining inconsistent -- and safety. They'll wait on corner for now and pop Ford, a former corner-turned-safety who plays with a gladiator ethos. Ford will improve coverage and bring plenty of energy.

PFF - Mike Renner (8/19)

29. Walker Little, OT, Stanford

If he doesn't get to play any more football, we'll have seen all of 72 snaps from Little since 2018. He's a big, mobile left tackle, though, and that would fit perfectly into Kyle Shanahan's scheme if they can't re-sign Trent Williams. If he could have stayed healthy all of 2019, there's a chance he would have been in the conversation for the first tackle off the board last year.

The Draft Network - Kyle Crabbs (8/19)

29. Trey Smith, IOL, Tennessee

The 49ers let starting guard Mike Person go this offseason and he promptly retired this summer. The 49ers are currently scheduled to have Daniel Brunskill and free agent addition Tom Compton compete to take his place. Instead of sticking with that blueprint long-term, why not go nail down a warhammer in the run game in Trey Smith? The 49ers are super physical but also graceful up front; Smith moves well enough for a big man that the Vols tried him at left tackle for a while. If the medicals clear, this is a match made in heaven next to Mike McGlinchey at right tackle.

Below you will find a post-NFL Draft roundup for the 49ers in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 4

The rest of the 49ers' offseason plan came into focus during the draft when, in the first round, they picked defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw to replace DeForest Buckner and wide receiver Brandon Ayuk to step in for Emmanuel Sanders. It would be unrealistic to expect either rookie to be as good as the guys they are replacing right away, but at least the 49ers' plan is clear.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 4

They did a nice job in the draft of filling holes, with landing left tackle Trent Williams in a trade being the biggest move. They will be right back in the mix to win it all.

San Francisco 49ers Fantasy Football Projections

Not only do we have fantasy football projections by positions, we have team-by-team fantasy projections as well.

Here are our projections for the San Francisco 49ers running backs for the 2020 NFL season:

Raheem Mostert177.8835.77.1122202.41.76157.03
Mostert was terrific down the stretch, scoring in all but one of his final nine games counting the postseason including a 29/220/4 rushing performance in the NFC Championship Game. Even so, Kyle Shanahan prefers a hot-hand approach at running back and the team still has a crowded backfield room even without Matt Breida.
Tevin Coleman135.95984.7619.5167.71.46113.89
Since the calendar flipped to December, Coleman had just one game (in eight) with more than six carries -- 22/105/2 rushing against the Vikings in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. While Mostert may be the team's most-productive running back at the end of 2020, Coleman will have his share of big outings with the potential to vastly outperform his current ADP.
Jerick McKinnon68.6284.71.7219.2136.30.7757.04
Kyle Juszczyk20.375.10.217.2168.60.6929.71
