The more I look at the way this draft is starting to shape up, I'm not so sure a top OT will be available @ #13!
Maybe Trent Williams, but I'm not even sure about that? To be honest, if the top 4 OT's are gone, I wouldn't take one in the 1st round! Maryland's OT Bruce Campbell is a better pass blocker than run blocker and UMass OT Vladimir Ducasse (according to Mike Mayock) would not even be ready to start at RT on day 1! Why reach?
We can get great players who can step in and contribute from day 1. A DB or pass rushing LB, versatile RB/WR threat. As much as we need O-line help, we still need play-makers on both sides of the ball! According to Mike Mayock, he has Tennessee Safety Eric Berry rated as the #2 Safety, behind Earl Thomas from Texas! He says Berry could go at #12 overall. (Hmmm, the 49ers are sitting at #13.) Could Berry fall to us?
I wonder if we reach a little bit and still grab OG Mike Iupati at #16/17? He can play several positions, but we need to work on him holding so much if the 49ers draft him.
What do you guys think? Am I in the ballpark?
