Brad’s Bodacious 49er Draft Board v2.0
April 9, 2002 at 12:00 AM
1 (27) Anthony Weaver, DT/DE, Notre Dame
A great, intense player. Will add a lot of depth and versatility to the line.
Lito Sheppard, CB, Florida – A great cover guy who would move Webster to nickel.
Charles Grant, DE, Georgia – Best size/pass rush end after Peppers.
Levi Jones, T, Arizona – Big, talented, smart. Needs more heart. Could be gone before we pick, though.
Mike Pearson, T, Florida – Another athletic tackle for the 49ers to consider.
Dwight Freeney, DE, Syracuse - Should be a great third down pass rusher at the very least.
Edward Reed, S, Miami – Plays the same position as Bronson, but he’s just too good to ignore.
Kendall Simmons, G, Auburn – Looks like a great player…but a guard in round one?
2 (61) Mike Echols, CB, Wisconsin
A reach at this spot, but he’s a great cover corner to play nickel. Could trade down.
Bryan Thomas, DE, AL-Birmingham – High effort speed rusher.
Kenyou Craver, CB, Nebraska – Tough cover guy who can play immediately.
Eddie Freeman, DT, AL-Birmingham – Big tackle who could be a star. Needs some refining.
Joseph Jefferson, CB, Western Kentucky - Was the best corner at the Blue-Grey game.
Marquise Walker, WR, Michigan – Just as good as JJ Stokes but a HELL of a lot cheaper.
Fred Weary, G, Tennessee - Very athletic guard with adequete size who has tackle potential.
Coy Wire, S, Stanford – Could be a great strong safety. 49er kind of player.
3 (no pick currently)
4 (125) Kahlil Hill, WR, Iowa
A big, athletic player with more playmaking ability than Stokes. Great return guy.
Kevan Thomas, CB, UNLV – Good little cover guy with solid fourth round value. Needs to bulk up.
Joanquin Gonzalez, T, Miami (Fl) – Tough, hard nosed player. Limited athlete.
Brian Poli-Dixon, WR, UCLA - A very big, very athletic, player, but injury prone and inconsistent.
Tony Beckham, CB, Wisconsin-Stout – Could develop into a great player. Size and speed.
Ron Johnson, WR, Minnesota – Very big, physical receiver. Team leader and clutch player.
5 (157) Matt Hill, T, Boise State
Big, athletic tackle who could be a starter by 2003. Was very raw but improving rapidly.
5 (172) Charles Hill, DT, Maryland
Has the size and the desire to be a solid tackle. Quick learner.
Chris Cash, CB, USC – Could be a contributor. Good cover skills. Injury must check out.
Steve Smith, S, Oregon – Corner who could develop into a very good safety. Plays the ball well.
Aaron Kampman, DL, Iowa – Competitor with size and frame to be a good player. Probably a tackle.
Nate Dwyer, DT, Kansas – Has the frame and strength. Needs to work harder – has some McGrew in him.
6 (191) Kurt Vollers, T, Notre Dame
A big (6-7, 321) mauler who will likely be a guard in the NFL.
Kyle Kosier, G, Arizona State – Has pretty good feet and movement skills. Could be bigger.
Frank Romero, G, Oklahoma – Not very big, but a good athlete who plays hard and never misses games.
Ken Kocher, DT, UCLA – Big, smart, and responds to coaching.
Jonathan Goodwin, G/C, Michigan – Could add depth to the interior.

7 (223) Scott Mitchell, QB, Western Washington
Could be a very good 49er quarterback with some tinkering.
7 (249) Daryl Jones, WR, Miami (FL)
Quick, elusive player who would probably be a top return man.
7 (256) Antwan Kirk-Hughes, G/C, Texas
Has a center’s mentality. Could make it as a backup and eventually start.
Brandon Doman, QB, BYU – Another guy who looks like a WCO player.
Mike Mallon, FB, Brown –Former running back with speed, size, and hands. Inexperienced blocker.
Bradly Jennings, MLB, Florida State – Can play on run downs and be a special teams terror.
Howard Duncan, G, Oklahoma – Could be a player. Has the size.
Kevin Barry, G/T, Arizona – Could develop. Great size.
