Perhaps but the mock draft if it fell that way would be awesome. It makes me laugh when people think the NIners should use a "luxury" pick on players like Spiller or McLain. At least this mock has the Niners addressing their true needs with the first 4 picks.
The corner position is just as much as a luxury pick as half back and inside linebacker. Clements, Spencer, and Brown is not a bad secondary by any stretch. You can also find good nickel corners in free agency every single year.
I know everybody wants to cut Nate or move him to safety, but it's pretty assanine if you ask me. 6 mil next year is not a horrendous deal. Pay the man this year, and then start working on restructing his contract for the future. Nate's not dumb he knows he isn't getting that fluff money we gave him in his original contract.
Our secondary is not as bad as it looks on paper. We've played 5 games against top 9 passing offenses already this year including the 1st, the 3rd, and the 4th passing attacks. If you look at our entire schedule 8/10 opponents have been in the upper half in passing this year. Our QB rating is a more than respectable 80.3. Teams average 7.1 yards per attempt and a 61% completion ratio. That's 19th in the league. Definetily not good numbers there, but like I said the secondary isn't as bad as it's made out to be.
Tough schedule, bad pass rush, Clements injury, bad offense have all heavily contributed to our 30th pass ranking defense this season.
