We made it! The 2014 NFL Draft kicks off tonight, and we can start to burn all those mock drafts! NFL Network and ESPN will have plenty of coverage, but we'll have what you need for 49ers coverage. The 49ers do not pick until No. 30, but I imagine everybody will be on edge waiting to see if the 49ers make a trade up in the first round. They could do almost anything with that No. 30 pick, and I'm sure there will be mixed reactions no matter the outcome.
SB Nation is putting on a live show before and after the draft. You can watch the live pre-show up above starting at 4:30 p.m. PT. It will run for half an hour, and then there will be an hour-long post-draft show. The draft will likely run until something like 8:45 or 9 p.m. PT tonight. It's technically scheduled for 5-8, but it always runs long.
This year's draft could be all over the place. The Houston Texans are expected to draft Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 1 pick, but other than that, nothing is really known. We could see a whole assortment of trades throughout the first round. The fifth year option for rookie contracts means that if some quarterbacks slip to the bottom of the first round, teams could look to move up from the second to get them. That bodes well for the 49ers if they decide to move down.
For now though, we'll wait and see what happens. Below is a feed from @ninersnation where I'll be posting plenty of info. As info comes out, I'll add new threads, and we'll just play out what should be a fun night.
