1st round, pick 2: Nick Bosa, EDGE
-Obviously a great pick, one of the best young EDGEs in the NFL immediately. While you can argue that it was the no-brainer pick and everyone knew about it for months you have to give credit where it is due because they didn’t screw it up.
2nd round, pick 34: Deebo Samuel, WR
-The best pick in the draft for the 49ers from a value standpoint, Samuel has been great as a ball carrier for the 49ers and his versatility as a weapon makes that offense much more dynamic and interesting than it was last year.
3rd round, pick 67: Jalen Hurd, WR
-Put on injured reserve before doing anything on offense.
4th round, pick 110: Mitch Wishnosky, P
-He’s been fine. He is a punter.
5th round, pick 148: Dre Greenlaw, LB
-A really solid player who gave the 49ers depth coming into the season but had to immediately step in and fill a role after Kwon Alexander got hurt. Nice find for Lynch and the 49ers here.
6th round, pick 176: Kaden Smith, TE
-Cut by the 49ers, but went on to have a solid season with the New York Giants catching 3 TD passes.
6th round, pick 183: Justin Skule, OT
-Another guy who had to step in because of injuries, Skule played a chunk of the season but he was not good at all.
6th round, pick 198 : Tim Harris, CB
-On I.R. immediately.
I mean this is a really good class up top and the 49ers nailed the two picks they had inside the top-40, but after that it is really a solid linebacker and a punter as the biggest positives of this class.
Letting a solid tight end go isn’t good, but it is hard to keep everyone and it isn’t like the 49ers would have been able to use him a lot anyway so I don’t hold that against them. Drafting Skule looks good on paper but bad on film.
