What a day. We kicked off the draft week with a wild mock draft from Peter King, and from there, the rumors were nonstop. I’m joined by The Athletic’s Ted Nguyen to help breakdown the San Francisco 49ers’ biggest team needs leading up to the draft. Once we narrowed those down, we talked about:

-If the 49ers should be locked in at receiver with the 13th pick

-Does it make sense to trade back and add picks in 2021?

-Which teams can trade ahead of San Francisco

-Which receivers best fit the 49ers?

-Peter King’s mock draft

-The top-five receivers in the draft

- Kwon Alexander, Dee Ford, and Jaquiski Tartt reportedly on the trading block

Plus much, much more. Ted is great, and if you aren’t familiar with his work, he’s one of the best at breaking down film on the internet. Ted’s been covering the 49ers for a few years now, so he’s familiar with the roster. Enjoy!
