Pete Prisco’s latest mock draft doesn’t change much; Kyler Murray to Cardinals, Nick Bosa to 49ers

The 49ers made some additions in free agency and as you may expect, it hasn’t changed what analysts think of that No. 2 pick.

Now that free agency is winding down (well with most of the big names gone/traded) we can start to get a better idea of where teams are on that draft board. As you might expect, very little has changed for the 49ers. Well, so far.

In his latest mock draft Wednesday, Pete Prisco mocks a name we’re all familiar with. The Arizona Cardinals take Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray and then the 49ers settle for Ohio State pass rusher Nick Bosa.

Here’s what Prisco said about Bosa:

With the Cardinals taking Murray, the 49ers would end up with the best pass rusher and player in the class in Bosa.

One of the 49ers’ most glaring weaknesses, pass rush, might have a huge 180 after the 2019 NFL draft. In case you didn’t hear about it, the 49ers traded for Dee Ford. Everything else seems to fall into place. Quinnen Williams goes to the New York Jets, Josh Allen to the Raiders, Dwayne Haskin to the New York Giants (without a trade) and D.K. Metcalf to the Buffalo Bills.

So Metcalf goes at No. 9. If any of you are hoping the 49ers can find a way to trade back into the first round late to get their hands on him, No. 9 is not going to happen. That’s going to take half their draft stock. It’s a nice consolation for the Bills who missed out on the Odell Beckham Jr. sweepstakes.

Mocks should be changing around as the weeks go on, but it seems like the big three pass rushers will be mocked to the 49ers in some way, shape or form. At least for a little while longer.
