Rumors are always interesting during NFL draft season. One that came out on Tuesday is the talk that the Cleveland Browns, who hold the #1 overall pick, are divided between picking Myles Garrett and Mitch Trubisky. Myles has been talked about as the surefire pick at #1. But if the Browns do select Mitch over Myles at #1, the 49ers will have to pick Myles Garrett or take calls for the #2 pick.

Myles Garrett is the type of pass rusher the 49ers could really use to revitalize their defense. He had an excellent combine and has been regarded as the best pass rusher in the draft since Von Miller. As we know, Von Miller helped make the Broncos one of the best defenses in the NFL. Also, if Myles is available at #2, the 49ers would have a bunch of teams calling to get that pick. John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan would be in the driver’s seat to get good picks in a trade for the #2 pick. Still, it is unlikely that the Browns pass on Myles Garrett. But they are still the Browns, so it would not be surprising.

The 49ers are having a couple of pre-draft visits this week. Alabama DL star Jonathan Allen is scheduled to visit. He was a standout on a great Alabama defense and collected 10.5 sacks in his last season. His shoulder issues are possible red flags, but if that is not an issue, he could be a great player on the line. The QB that beat Alabama in the national championship game, Clemson’s Deshaun Watson will also visit. Deshaun could be available in the 2nd round and the 49ers lack of QBs will force them to take one. Deshaun could be in play for the 49ers.
