The 49ers rumors continue to swirl around who San Francisco will target Day two of the 2018 NFL Draft. With four picks (59,70,74, and 95) will the San Francisco 49ers go defense heavy? Maybe the 49ers focus on the linebacker position or the cornerback position. Here are five players the 49ers will could select on Day two of the 2018 NFL Draft:

5.) Quin Blanding, S, Virginia Cavaliers
The 49ers secondary could improve and, with Eric Reid hitting free agency, they need to find more depth - if not another starter - at the position. Blanding is an excellent tackler and more of a strong safety at this point, but he's someone who makes sense for San Francisco in round three.
4.) Rasheem Green, DE, USC Trojans
The 49ers traded defensive end Tank Carradine to the Raiders and now lack depth at the edge rusher position. Carradine is more of a part-time player and seeing Green in the third round may be too hard to pass on for the 49ers. His wingspan of 81 inches is incredible like a California Condor and has the length that defensive coaches crave.
3.) Anthony Miller, WR, Memphis
One of the most electric wide receiver prospects this year is Anthony Miller. In his final year with Memphis, he had 96 receptions 1,462 yards, and 18 touchdowns. He is an athletic freak and would be a great fit in the 49ers offense. Miller may fall to the 49ers in round three or they could use one of their three third round picks to trade up and grab him.
2.) Malik Jefferson, LB, Texas Longhorns
The 49ers need to add linebacker depth and Jefferson would be a great fit. Jefferson has all the tools to be a game breaker against both the run and in coverage. Jefferson is finally starting to live to his potential as a dynamic linebacker, leading the Longhorns in tackles, tackles for loss, and sacks in 2017. I'd be surprised if he fell all the way to 59, but linebackers have been falling so far in the draft so you never know.
1.) Carlton Davis, CB, Auburn Tigers
The 49ers need to add talent at the cornerback position. The cornerback class in this year's draft is very balanced with a ton of depth, which means solid options will be available to the 49ers in round two. Enter Davis, who is a starting-caliber cornerback who was rumored to be a first-round pick. Not sure if he will make it until pick 59 so it' wouldn't surprise me to see the 49ers trade up for him in round two.Back to the San Francisco 49ers Newsfeed
