This tweet by Maiocco should end pretty much all Mocks with Safeties as our 1st round pick(s):
# Just know how 49ers, and most teams, value safeties and guards. Has to be special, special talent to be chosen in top 20 at those spots. about 9 hours ago from TweetDeck
# @paulkapellas 49ers unlikely to pick safety in 1st. Probably not a S, other than Berry, 49ers would consider worthy in middle of 1st.
Like I've said before, as much as I would LOVE to draft a Safety in the 1st, it is highly unlikely McCloughan will pull the trigger on one. Which IMO, I don't agree with. But since this draft is deep with Safeties, I think we'll be alright choosing one later on.
