With the NFL draft now just over a week away, mock drafts continue to pour in from some of the top draft analysts in the industry. In the latest mock draft from ESPN, legendary analyst Mel Kiper Jr. paired with Field Yates for a duel mock draft.

When the San Francisco 49ers were on the clock at No. 31 overall in the first round, Kiper Jr. was in control of the 49ers pick. After penciling in offensive tackle Washington Huskies offensive tackle Roger Rosengarten in a recent mock draft, Kiper Jr. stuck with the offensive line with his latest pick for the 49ers.

At pick No. 31 in the first round, the 49ers landed Arizona Wildcats offensive tackle Jordan Morgan. According to Kiper Jr., Morgan could compete with Colton McKivitz at right tackle with the 49ers.


San Francisco needs to add competition for its right tackle spot. Morgan is a veteran left tackle who could make the switch to battle Colton McKivitz.

The 6-foot-6 offensive tackle played four seasons at Arizona. In his senior season under Jeff Fisch, Morgan earned AP First-Team All-Pac 12 honors as the Wildcats secured a 10-3 record.

In his final season in Tuscon, Morgan earned an 83.5 grade with Pro Football Focus, giving up only two sacks in 787 offensive snaps with the Wildcats.

The NFL draft is set for Thursday, April 25.
