9. Mike McGlinchey, OT, Notre Dame (San Francisco 49ers)
The San Francisco 49ers opted to go the “safe and smart” route, taking a high-floor, low-risk prospect like Mike McGlinchey to shore up their offensive line.
After the 49ers traded away tackle Trent Brown, head coach Kyle Shanahan named him the starting right tackle to begin the regular season, opposite starting left tackle Joe Staley. As a rookie, he started in all 16 games for the 49ers, before suffering an injury-plagued sophomore season in 2019.
