There have nine more picks completed, and they will show up three at a time starting tomorrow. That means, we are awaiting the New England Patriots pick at No. 29. Here are picks 20-28, although they are not in order of pick so as to not give them away before they are published.

Darqueze Dennard, CB
Kyle Fuller, CB
Justin Gilbert, CB
Bradley Roby, CB

Odell Beckham Jr, WR
Kelvin Benjamin, WR
Marqise Lee, WR

Kony Ealy, DE

Ryan Shazier, LB

With those players out of the picture, we need to figure out who to pick for the 49ers 30th pick. Down below, I've posted the best available players based on Mocking The Draft's April 2 Big Board. I've included a poll for people to vote on their favorite. After you vote, go down in the comments and post your top two choices. I figure we'll likely lose one of these to the Patriots pick, so I'm curious to see backup options.
