When it comes to 2018 NFL mock drafts, the San Francisco 49ers are typically mocked a handful of players, with Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds and Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith being the most talked about, at least in my experience.
According to the current iteration of the Niners Nation mock draft database, Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick, Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward and Florida State safety Derwin James are also listed multiple times.
These are the most-mocked players, and while that means absolutely nothing on draft day, if the pundits did actually get it right ... which one of these would disappoint you the most?
For me, I haven’t watched as much as I’d like to on Derwin James, but I just don’t see the 49ers taking a safety. I think a safety could be the best player available, but I think the team feels very strongly about its safeties. I’d be surprised if James is the pick. Then again, I am a big fan of Minkah Fitzpatrick, so that may be something of a double standard.
