49ers 2023 mock draft 1.0: Defense gets 2 beefy linemen, George Kittle gets protege (paywall)

“Prediction: Defensive line coach Kris Kocurek will fall in love with [Northwestern DT Adetomiwa] Adebawore’s burst. He’s the first lineman out of his stance on every snap and uses his 6-foot-2 frame to get beneath the pads of his opponent. He’s not the kind of defensive tackle who can absorb two blockers, and he’s certainly smaller than Jones. But he’s quicker than centers and guards and will be able to penetrate the backfield like the 49ers want. He also has the terrier-like energy and enthusiasm to match Kocurek’s. He’ll be a teacher’s pet from Day 1.”
