On this week’s episode of the Better Rivals podcast, premium-position players who could be available for the 49ers at No. 9 overall enter the spotlight. Does it make sense for the 49ers to target interior coverage defenders like Minkah Fitzpatrick or Derwin James given the current makeup of the roster? (6:54) Do either of the top cornerbacks in this draft class project as a scheme fit in San Francisco’s defense? (26:26) And which edge rusher should be at the top of the 49ers’ wish list come draft day? (46:09) All that, plus math jokes, why offense is unlikely to be a consideration at No. 9 overall, and our rankings for San Francisco’s first-round options.
