In Rounds 2 and 3, the San Francisco 49ers made their first picks in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Although the 49ers didn’t steal a pick in Day 1, general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan were “very excited” about their three draft pick-ups.
“Nothing’s guaranteed, you got to work with what you’ve got,” Shanahan said in Friday night’s press conference. “With the three picks we picked today, if you would’ve told me this before the day started these are the three we’d end up with by staying put, I would’ve been very excited – I would’ve been surprised.”
Here’s a rundown of the 49ers 2022 draft so far:
Round 2: 61st-Overall – DL Drake Jackson, USC
With San Francisco’s first pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, the 49ers selected defensive lineman Drake Jackson from the University of Southern California.
