ESPN's Todd McShay identifies 49ers biggest needs in National Football League draft

The first round of the 2017 NFL Draft takes place on April 27, providing an outpost in the barren wasteland of a football-free spring. In 2016, Brate was tied for the league-lead among tight ends with eight touchdown receptions.

The guys at SB Nation reported that should the Carolina Panthers opt to let McCaffrey pass at No. 8 overall draft selection, an unnamed organization is "currently picking in the teens" has guaranteed the Castle Rock, Colorado native that they will draft him. "I've heard second round so that's why I mocked him there".

The Tennessee Titans hold both the No. 5 and No. 18 picks in the first round of the upcoming NFL Draft, giving them two early opportunities to draft impact players that will be expected to contribute immediately.

Well, at least it's an original pick.

Cornerback has always been the most touted position in this draft, but circumstances have conspired such that it doesn't look like one will be the best player available at the Eagles first round pick.

With the way things worked out, Kiper ended up making all of the Texans' picks. It's unlikely the 49ers will use the second-overall pick on a signal caller given none in this class are considered sure-fire franchise cornerstones. That's fine, but that would leave the Bucs with two receiving tight ends who don't do much as blockers with Cameron Brate already on the roster.

McShay said the third round presents the most value for a defensive tackle in this class. Which.does not make a lot of sense, to be honest. As many as 20 defensive backs could go in the first two rounds, which would be a remarkable number. He's a disruptive run defender who helped his stock with his performance at the Senior Bowl. They're electrifying, big-play threats who could blow by defensive backs and take it to the house at any moment, and they're stellar returners. The Colts could look to move up to nab an edge rusher, but would they be willing to part ways with the 46th pick in order to do so?

After dazzling fans and scouts alike with his on field play during the season, Cook's off-field behavior is being scrutinized now more than ever, with some scouts saying they feel more comfortable with Joe Mixon's character than Cook's.
