reliable FF site. does it translate to predicting the draft?
I don't see the draft playing out like this, but i dont think anyone could complain if these were our top 4 picks...
13. San Francisco 49ers – Joe Haden, CB, Florida
With help in the secondary already a need, the team is pleasantly surprised to find the top CB in the draft fall out of the top ten. He is a shutdown corner with top speed who creates turnovers in the air and on the ground. If Haden doesn’t make it this far, Taylor Mays or Earl Thomas could be 49ers.
16t. San Francisco 49ers (from Carolina Panthers) – Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
A decorated four-year starter, Williams lacks the upside of some other prospects at offensive tackles, but plays both sides and projects a solid starter at RT.
(2)45. San Francisco 49ers – Brandon Graham, OLB, Michigan
The undersized tweener turned heads at the Senior Bowl and while draftniks and pundits raced to move him up draft boards, the reality of his limited size and measurables will knock him back down a bit at the Combine. That doesn’t mean he can’t be the next Elvis Dumervil, just that he won’t be drafted that high by most teams that will point to physical limitations before investing that much in him. HC Mike Singletary is definitely a guy who goes by what he sees on the field over crunching numbers and won’t hesitate to scoop Graham up if he falls here to help his pass rush.
(3)77. San Francisco 49ers – Mardy Gilyard, WR, Cincinnati
Gilyard is an undersized playmaker as receiver and returner. He has an opportunity to make an impact in the slot.
