The San Francisco 49ers' pick in the Phinsider Community Mock Draft is in, and we are just waiting for the announcement now. Before we get there, a quick look back at the first six picks in this draft finds no quarterbacks selected thus far, something few would have thought possible prior to the start of the selection process.

Now, we come to the 49ers, who could be the team to end the quarterback slide. The team, however, could look to upgrade the offensive line, which is also a high priority this offseason, and they could be looking to add wide receivers as well. What will Andy in Omaha, who is serving as the 49ers' front office, do with the pick? Let us get to the announcement:

With the seventh overall pick in the Phinsider Community Mock Draft, Andy in Omaha selects for the San Francisco 49ers, Carson Wentz, quarterback, North Dakota State.

The Niners have a ton of needs, but a franchise QB is their biggest. Wentz is one of the best QB's in the draft and is probably ready to be plugged in and play from week one.

Analysis

There is no hiding the fact that the 49ers and quarterback Colin Kaepernick are in the middle of a strange divorce. Whenever the trade to the Denver Broncos actually is completed, the 49ers are going to be desperately in need of a quarterback, no matter how much new head coach Chip Kelly says he loves Blaine Gabbert. The board fell perfectly for the 49ers, who have their choice of any quarterback in the Draft. It basically comes down to choosing between Wents and Jared Goff.
