The San Francisco 49ers have been linked to LSU running back Leonard Fournette for the past few months, and while they have been rumored to be interested in several other players - namely UNC quarterback Mitchell Trubisky - Greg Gabriel of ProFootballWeekly.com reports that Fournette is their top target.

However, San Francisco may get lucky and have a chance to get the top overall player in this class. The Browns are reportedly expected to take Trubisky with the No. 1 overall pick, meaning they would be able to draft Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett.
Gabriel's report doesn't indicate if they would still take Fournette if Garrett is still available, but it does seem like Fournette is at the top of their draft board.
Fournette ran for 843 yards with eight touchdowns on 129 carries in seven games last season after picking up 1,953 yards and 22 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2015.Back to the San Francisco 49ers Newsfeed
