WATCH: Trey Lance throwing with Patrick Mahomes

“It’s important to note off the top that we can glean exactly nothing from the video. Trying to decipher what he’s doing mechanically is nigh impossible on a slow motion video of one (1) throw.”

Matt Maiocco breaks down how 49ers could use 11 draft picks

“Younger guys might not all be ready to contribute at the beginning of the 2023 season, but, they will have an opportunity, some of those guys, to start,” Maiocco said. “Some of them, especially the defensive linemen, will have a huge opportunity to be big-time rotational players. And then other guys, like maybe the safety or the cornerbacks that they get, will have an opportunity as early as say next year, to step in there and and solidify themselves as starters.”

Lombardi: How 49ers GM John Lynch uses the comp pick formula to reload for NFL Draft (paywall)

“It’s safe to say that the 49ers are now operating on or above the Ravens’ and Patriots’ level in the department of comp-pick procurement. It’s even more interesting to examine how the 49ers have built this system since it’s an integral part of their strategy to build a sustainably strong roster under the NFL’s salary cap, which makes doing so challenging.”

49ers meet with Alabama TE Cameron Latu ahead of NFL draft

“Latu measured in at the combine at 6-4, 242 pounds. He’s a willing blocker, but he’s not necessarily built to be a mauler the way Kittle has been. However, he can hold his own as an in-line blocker while bringing the athleticism to play more of an H-back role where he’s blocking on the move.”

49ers add tackle, safety, tight end in latest PFF mock draft

“Sydney Brown registered 60 tackles, 3.5 tackles for a loss, a sack, seven passes defensed, a team-leading six interceptions, a touchdown, and a forced fumble through 12 game appearances as a senior in 2022, per Sports Reference. He recorded 320 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, two sacks, 16 passes defensed, 10 interceptions, two touchdowns, and four forced fumbles through his five collegiate seasons.”

4 sleepers 49ers must have eyes on late in 2023 NFL Draft

“With Kittle beginning to get up there in age, and the Niners’ desire to land a solid secondary option, Kuntz might be a sleeper pick who isn’t so much of a sleeper any longer.”

Branch: The 49ers are excited because Javon Kinlaw is healthy. Sound familiar? (paywall)

“It’s fair to wonder about the 49ers’ level of enthusiasm after a season in which Kinlaw was activated in December from injured reserve. At the time, Shanahan said he was surprised that Kinlaw was able to return during the season, suggesting he had progressed better than expected from his latest knee issue.”
