Can 49ers catch the Eagles? Six first-round picks that impact San Francisco (paywall)

They’ll eventually be paired with safeties Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs in what the Seahawks hope will become a latter-day “Legion of Boom....With the 20th pick, Seattle added Ohio State’s Jaxon Smith-Njigba to a receiver group that already had DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. The 49ers’ top three cornerbacks right now are Charvarius Ward, Deommodore Lenoir and newcomer Isaiah Oliver.

Explaining 49ers’ fifth-round success and a look at their pre-draft visits (paywall)

“The 49ers have used their initial pick on a defensive lineman in six of the last eight drafts. If they stick to that script Friday, they might go with one of three edge rushers: Notre Dame’s Isaiah Foskey, Tennessee’s Byron Young or Louisville’s YaYa Diaby.”

Five positions 49ers could target in third round of draft

“Among those who could be available to add to the mix to join Drake Jackson, the 49ers’ second-round pick last year, are Byron Young (Tennessee), Tuli Tuipulotu (USC) and Isaiah McGuire (Missouri).”
