The 49ers need to hit a home run in the 2019 draft if they’re going to accelerate their rebuild and contend for a playoff spot next season. ESPN’s Todd McShay put together a three-round mock draft that lands each team an ‘A’ grade.

No surprise here with quarterback Kyler Murray flying off the board first to the Arizona Cardinals. Bosa is very likely the pick for the 49ers if he’s available, but it isn’t a slam dunk certainty. They’ll still consider a trade back and may even look into Alabama defensive lineman Quinnen Williams. However, Bosa is the most logical pick. He gives San Francisco a potential All-Pro talent on the side opposite newly-acquired pass rusher Dee Ford, and gives the 49ers an opportunity to dramatically improve one of the league’s worst pass defenses in just one offseason.
