Since I'm not a paid draft guru, I really hate trying to guess where these cats are going to end up on draft day. But, here is my list of players I personally would love to see line up as Niners.
Sergio Kindle - Kindle played a hybrid position where he was asked to cover out in space and did well. He also is an aggressive pass rusher. I see him as a more natural version of Ahmad Brooks.
O'Brien Schofield - Schofield was completely unblockable in a number of Big Ten games this year...I think he could be available pretty late too, unless hype builds after combine workouts.
Amari Spievey - OK, I'm in Ohio so Big Ten is big on my radar, but this dude could end up being the best CB out of this draft. Not dynamic like Pat Robinson, but bears a lot of similarity to Nnamdi Asomuga. Big, strong and dominant...teams don't throw his way much.
Walter Thurmond III - May be a steal, if he drops due to the leg injury, but I don't think he's worth the risk going higher than a 4th (for us). Tremendous ballhawk, tho.
Reshad Jones - Absolutely one of my favorites that I will watch throughout the draft process. Would be a perfect replacement for M.Lewis and excellent bookend to Goldson.
Barry Church - Reminds me Killa Keith Lewis...potential Special Teams ace and backup in-the-box- safety.
Antonio Brown - Excellent quick-twitch moves, can play the slot and KR/PR. Catches nearly everything.
Freddy Barnes - OK, I've seen two of his games and he is definitely not a blazer, but why does every site talk about him like he's Slow Poke Rodriguez? I like the fact that he catches ABSOLUTELY everything, but this is not the most realistic pick since we need speed and we already have a guy who plays slow and used to catch everything in college (Jason Hill).
Dexter McCluster - Obvious reasons. Plays like Sproles, but I've seen him throw some cold-blooded blocks. Dude's a baller. Could be a nice spread WR/third down back.
