San Francisco 49ers draft picks 2021: Round-by-round selections

View Comments

Here is a 2021 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the San Francisco 49ers: 

Round 1 (No. 3 overall, from Texans through Dolphins) - Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State: A pick that's changed hands three times, the Niners made their bold acquisition of it last month ... and it was quickly followed by rampant speculation that they would take Alabama's Mac Jones. But going with Lance, who has far more upside than Jones given his physical skills, seems like the better option given the franchise surrendered three first-rounders to get him.  Draft tracker

Round 2 (48, from Raiders) - Aaron Banks, OG, Notre Dame: Another all-ACC pick, he should help facilitate the Niners' ground game, which is truly the key to their offense. This O-line is getting a nice boost this spring after C Alex Mack also signed here. Draft tracker

Round 3 (88, from Rams) - Trey Sermon, RB, Ohio State: San Francisco adds more juice to a ground game currently headlined by Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson. Sermon ripped off 7.4 yards per carry between 2019 and 2020 seasons split between the Sooners and Buckeyes. He'll probably need to put in some work to be on the field for passing downs. Draft tracker

Round 3 (102, compensatory) - Ambry Thomas, CB, Michigan: The Niners begin reloading after losing CB Ahkello Witherspoon and Richard Sherman. Thomas opted out last year but swiped three passes in 2019. Draft tracker

Round 5 (172, from Saints) - Deommodore Lenior, CB, Oregon

Round 5 (180, compensatory) - Talanoa Hufanga, S, USC

Round 6 (194) - Elijah Mitchell, RB, Louisiana
