Here are three players the Los Angeles Rams should fear the San Francisco 49ers selecting the most at No. 2 in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Technically, the Los Angeles Rams aren’t too concerned over the first couple of picks in the 2019 NFL Draft since they know the only chance of landing a top prospect like Nick Bosa or Josh Allen would be through trading up.

However, with two of their rivals having the two top picks in the first round, the Rams will be fully focused to see what the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers end up doing towards the end of April when the draft is officially underway.

With all due respect to the Cardinals since the team seems to be heading towards a year of rebuilding, if the Rams had to be concerned over one of these two teams being a contender in the division next year, it would be the 49ers.

Around this time last year, San Francisco was feeling all of the confidence in the world thanks to finally finding a quarterback to build the franchise around in Jimmy Garoppolo, but unfortunately a torn ACL forced the quarterback’s 2018 season to come to an end early on.

Assuming Garoppolo’s recovery process continues to go well over the next few months, the 49ers should be in great shape to potentially live up to the hype in 2019. And since they’re going to be in great position to land a top prospect at No. 2, this only increases San Francisco’s chances of causing problems for Los Angeles even more.
