Three Positions the 49ers Must Target in the 2024 NFL Combine

At the NFL scouting combine in 2024, the 49ers need to devote a significant portion of their attention on these three position groups.

The San Francisco 49ers will take their first move toward self-improvement this week at the Indianapolis 2024 NFL scouting combine.

The 49ers will own a first-round pick for the first time since 2021. They must find it unusual that they can genuinely play about with some of the more elite prospects. The 49ers need to concentrate and target these three places above all others. The trenches are where it starts and finishes.

It’s usually possible to find good offensive linemen on days two or even three of the NFL draft. If the 49ers don’t spend a significant amount of time at the combine scouting the guards, they won’t be able to accomplish that. It’s about time they at last identify some talented individuals in the hopes that they can start, especially at right guard. Since Mike Person announced his retirement following the 2019 season, the 49ers have been forced to rotate at right guard.

Rather than using a platoon system at the position with Spencer Burford, they need to find someone they can stick with for the long haul. NFL Network’s Daniel Jeramiah has listed Zach Frazier of West Virginia, Jackson Powers-Johnson of Oregon, and Graham Barton of Duke. Maybe the 49ers can start this week there.
