The day is finally here. The 2019 NFL Draft is upon us.
After months of pouring over every piece of information about every draft-eligible prospect, all 32 NFL teams will convene in Nashville, Tenn. on Thursday for the first round of the draft.
As is often the case, the closer we get to the first pick, the more rumors circulate. There's plenty of talk about which prospects will go high, which might slide, and which teams are in position to shake up the draft.
With only hours to go until the 49ers are scheduled to make their first-round pick, here's an updated selection of various NFL mock drafts highlighting the player(s) being associated with San Francisco and the No. 2 overall pick:
NBC Sports Bay Area: Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
What they said: "A year ago, the 49ers’ top edge rushers in their nickel package were Cassius Marsh and Ronald Blair. Now, it’s Dee Ford and Bosa. That’s a significant upgrade. The 49ers have turned a weakness into a strength, and every level of the defense will experience the benefits."
SI.com: Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
What they said: "The Niners have done all the requisite work on Nick Bosa ... I also know that they have pretty extensive background on how he’ll fit coordinator Robert Salah’s defense. Remember, Nick’s older brother Joey plays for Salah’s old boss/mentor, Chargers DC Gus Bradley. The affection here for Bosa has been no secret, and he’d amp up an already formidable front."
ESPN.com: Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
What they said: "Barring a huge offer that nets multiple high picks, the 49ers are likely to stay put and go for the player they believe can be a difference-maker at a premium position from Day 1. Putting Bosa with Dee Ford, DeForest Buckner and the rest of San Francisco's pass-rushers should give the Niners a chance to turn some of the 11 one-possession losses they've suffered the past two seasons into victories."
CBS Sports: Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
What they said: "If the Cardinals take Bosa No. 1, the 49ers would likely jump on Quinnen Williams here or see if they can get a decent haul from a team looking to trade up for a QB."
SB Nation: Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
What they said: "For several years the 49ers have had issues with edge rushers. The combination of Bosa and Dee Ford solve that problem."
