NFL Draft's best remaining players for 49ers include Myles Jack, Reggie Ragland, Sterling Shepard

New, comments

So much talent remains on the board. Who might slip to the 49ers in the third round?

The first round of the 2016 NFL Draft is a wrap. The San Francisco 49ers selected defensive tackle DeForest Buckner, and then moved back into the first round to draft offensive guard Joshua Garnett. They head into day two with a third round pick, but no second round pick following the Garnett trade and pick.

We'll have a more thorough look at the best players available, but for now, make sure and check out Gil Brandt's BPA list. The most notable name has to be Myles Jack. The UCLA inside linebacker was viewed as a top ten pick, but concerns about his knee have him dropping quite a bit. My guess is he goes early second round, but given how far he fell in round one, who knows where he ends up.

For the 49ers, the top of that list is not too helpful. Barring a trade, the 49ers don't pick again until No. 68, fifth in the third round. Looking at Brandt's list, there is a lot of intriguing talent. The 49ers have addressed the defensive line and offensive line. Where might they go in round three? Maybe a wide receiver like Braxton Miller slips down? Maybe they add to the secondary with a guy like Sean Davis or Zack Sanchez? I'm just throwing some names out there. From that list, who jumps out at you?

The quarterback position will remain up for debate. They are unlikely to land Connor Cook, but Dak Prescott is a real possibility in round three. Kevin Hogan is a day three option, and there are a handful of other interesting prospects. What do you think?
