2018 NFL mock draft: What could be a position of surprise in April?

We’ve got a four-round mock draft and a full schedule of Saturday’s Week 13 college action to keep you occupied!

The 2017 college football season has reached the final week of its “regular season” schedule. Week 13 is upon us, and after this, we move into the conference championship games and bowl season. We’ve already seen one huge upset in No. 2 Miami losing to unranked Pittsburgh. You can view the full schedule down below, with a host of potential upsets on the docket.

This will serve as our college game thread for the day, and we’re back with another four-round 2018 NFL mock draft from Draftwire. The 49ers picks don’t change a lot, with some new players but the same positions.

1 (2). Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State (@ Maryland, Big Ten Network, 12:30 p.m.)
2 (60). Anthony Miller, WR, Memphis (vs. East Carolina, ESPNU, 9:00 a.m.)
3 (66). Mason Cole, OL, Michigan (vs. No. 9 Ohio State, FOX, 9:00 a.m.)
3 (70). Quenton Meeks, CB, Stanford (vs. No. 8 Notre Dame, ABC, 5:00 p.m.)
4 (127). Lorenzo Carter, EDGE, Georgia (@ Georgia Tech, ABC, 9 a.m.)

The 49ers four-round class at Draftwire has been a similar run of positions each week. While they make sense as areas of need, there are always surprises in the NFL Draft. Aside from re-ordering when these positions go, what would be a position that might go earlier than people are thinking?

Here’s the full schedule of today’s college action.
