2016 NFL Draft: NFL.com Bucky Brooks: “49ers Might’ve Expended More Capital Than Needed.”


Charles Davis of NFL Network tagged San Francisco 49ers OG Joshua Garnett a ‘reach.’

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com said trading up for Garnett in the tail-end of the first-round makes him a ‘must-hit‘ draft pick. 

Mel Kiper of ESPN said “The No. 67 player on my board — was a little bit of a surprise and a clear reach for me.”
