DMB's 2010 Mock Draft
Note: I am going with a different direction for this mock plan. In the past, I tried to emulate picks that McCloughan would make. Since he's a bum, I am taking over the role of GM and will be selecting the picks based on my evaluation - and the influence from viewers like you!
CBA does get renewed.
Chris Foerster gets fired for the poor offensive line play. Rachal has regressed, and Snyder has had only one solid game. We hire Pat Ruel as our offensive line coach. Ruel has been the Trojan's OL coach for the past 4 seasons, and instrumental in the development of Sam Baker, Chilo Rachal, and Winston Justice. He has a track record of success, and NFL coaching experience as well.
Barry Sims - 2 year deal
- He's had an outstanding year at LT. No joke. I expect Staley to be moved back to RT, and we'll draft a backup LT in the 2nd or 3rd round.
Ahmed Brooks - 3 year deal
- Raw player with potential to becoming a serviceable player. 3 year deal, but we won't overpay for his services.
Walt Harris - 1 year deal
- Depth at CB.
David Baas - 1 year deal (RFA Tender)
- Competes at RG with Rachal
Aubrayo Franklin - 1 year deal (franchise)
- Another year to prove himself.
Vernon Davis - TE - 5 year deal
- No question about it that Vernon deserves an extension after this season.
Patrick Willis - LB - 7 year dael
- Since we can't get Derek Smith back on the roster, Willis will have to do as the long-term guy at ILB.
DeMetric Evans - DT/DE
Michael Lewis - SS (retires/releases) - Yes, GoFD, I stole this one from you.
Free Agent Signings -
Matt Roth - DE/OLB - 4 year deal - Browns
- With the emergence of Ahmed Brooks, we need another OLB to push Haralson for his job. Roth fits the bill without breaking the bank. This signing also is a proactive one as Manny Lawson may not get resigned for a long-term deal.
Clifton Ryan - DT/NT - 2 year deal - Rams
- He'll be a RFA, but I think the Rams will opt not to resign him as they will select Suh in the draft. Ryan is an interesting developmental prospect at NT for us.
Derek Anderson - QB - 2 year deal - Browns
- Let's hear the roars on this signing. Give Anderson a team with weapons, and he's at least proven to utilize it in some way. We won't let go of Hill though. Davis may see the practice squad if he can't beat out any QB.
49ers 2nd round draft pick for Kerry Rhodes - S - Jets and their 4th round draft pick. A steep price to pay? Yes, but it adds a long-term solution to our secondary in a shallow market.
49ers trade 1st round drat pick (SF) and 4th round draft pick (NY) to Tampa Bay for two 2nd round draft picks (TB & CHI). Tampa trades up to select prime talent, while we re-obtain that 2nd round draft pick.
NFL Draft -
R1: C.J. Spiller - RB/KR - Clemson
- Spiller instantly becomes our big play threat. With an offense loaded with talent from the likes of Gore as the core, Davis as the powerful and speedy TE, and Crabtree as the rising WR star, Spiller can find his niche as the speedy RB, slot WR, and game changing KR/PR we've been lacking.
R2: Brandon Spikes - ILB - Florida
- ILBs are fairly hard to project, unless they rival Willis's abilities. In 2009, 0 ILBs were selected in the first round. If Spikes falls to this spot, it will be hard to pass on him in the 2nd round. With Takeo Spikes entering his final contractual, and potentially his last season, in the NFL, we need a replacement for him. While McKillop has shown flashes, it's hard to pass up Spikes talent at this spot.
R2: Jon Asamoah - OG - Illinois
- Would you take one 5 star OG over two 4 star players at OG and TED/LB? I chose the latter with this mock draft. Asamoah is by no means Iupati, he definitely holds his ground as an instant starter in the NFL. Good power and mobility, he can succeed in a zone scheme or power blocking scheme.
R3: Kyle Calloway - OT - Iowa
- Developmental left tackle, Calloway comes from a program with proven success to input starters in the NFL. He's got great size and power to at least have the potential as a starting LT in this league. He'll have a year or two to develop behind Sims.
R4: Myron Rolle - SS - Florida St.
- With the subtraction of Lewis and Roman, we'll need an additional safety. Rolle is a no-nonsense strong safety that does everything by the book, but isn't a big playmaker...basically a younger version of Roman with a bit more potential.
R5: Chris Hawkins - CB - LSU
- Replaces Hudson at CB on the depth chart.
R6: Freddie Barnes - WR/QB - Bowling Green
- The new Arnaz Battle at WR.
R7: Erik Cook - C - New Mexico
- Developmental pick to challenge Wallace and Wragge on the interior line.
Depth Chart -
QB: Smith/Anderson*/Hill PS: Davis
OC: Heitmann/Wallace PS: Cook*
Summary: We need continuity and upgraded talent on the offensive line - ironic, ain't it? With this mock, we keep Baas, Staley, Sims, and Heitmann in the lineup. We get a new starting OG in Asamuah, and a backup LT in Calloway. 1 starter, and 1 new back up? I think that's the best we can do for the situation. Spiller is the main addition as he can play multiple positions.
NT: Franklin/Ryan* PS: RJF
ST: Nedney, Lee, Jennings
Summary: We are only a few pieces away from having a top 5 defense in 2010. The acquisition of Rhodes will give us a pro-bowl caliber S that we haven't had since Tony Parrish in his prime. The continued growth of Goldson and a healthy Nate Clements will improve our secondary. We also add role players in Roth and Ryan that may end up being future starters in 2010 or 2011. The selection of Spikes will give us the equivalent of Ray Lewis and Bart Scott in their prime.
Remaining questions: Is moving Joe Staley to RT feasible? Will Sims continue his performance in 2010? Is the addition of Calloway going to suffice to address the OT position? Is Geek an idiot for signing Derek Anderson? Isn't Nate Davis better than Marino, Montana, and P. manning combined? At least according to NT.
