2016 NFL mock draft: Who should the 49ers select in round 2 of the SB Nation mock draft?

New, comments

The SB Nation mock draft continues to roll along, and we have moved on to round two. The first 24 picks of the draft have been published over at SB Nation. The remaining seven of the first round, and the first five of the second round will follow in the coming days.

In the first round, I selected defensive tackle DeForest Buckner. The top two quarterbacks went to the Cleveland Browns and Dallas Cowboys, and that meant one of the big name talents was going to reach the San Francisco 49ers at No. 7. There were arguments to be made for other players, but Buckner was the best choice.

We now roll around to the 49ers second round pick. Rather than put a poll up at this point, I'm going to post some options for some discussion. First, I've posted the top 24 picks that have been announced, and then below that are the players selected, but not announced. I don't want to give away who went where, so I have split them up by position. After that, I have a short list of options by position.
