Very few mock drafts predicted this. The 49ers found themselves monumental beneficiaries of an insane 2020 Draft, thanks to the New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders. With the 13th overall pick, San Francisco found itself with arguably the best offensive tackle, defensive tackle and wide receiver in the draft in Tristan Wirfs, Javon Kinlaw and CeeDee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy.

The 49ers took that perfect opportunity to slide back in the draft, and they took it, moving back a single spot with the Buccaneers. The trade is the 49ers’ 13th overall pick and final seventh round pick (245 overall) for the Buccaneers’ 14th overall pick and fourth-round pick at 117 overall.

Effectively, an extra fourth-round pick to move back one spot. With that 14th pick, the 49ers decided to select Javon Kinlaw, who I believe is the best defensive tackle in the draft and the best fit for the 49ers. He also said recently that’s where he wanted to go. He has the best get-off in the draft and continues the 49ers’ strategy of keeping a dominant defensive line.
