It's looking more and more likely that the 49ers will take a RT with the #13 pick, unless someone like Berry or maybe Haden is still available. Either way, Webzone favorite C.J. Spiller is considered a "luxury" pick for the Niners, on account of not being a position of need and having two first-round picks, and is therefore not likely to be taken at #13.
This has led to multiple mock drafts that will certainly be a punch to the gut of all 49er fans: a scenario where Spiller is available at #13, we pass on him to take a RT, the Seahawks take Spiller at #14, the Giants and Titans don't take an OT, and we're on the clock at #17 facing a scenario where we could have taken Spiller #13 and still gotten the same RT at #17. And we have to defend against Spiller twice a year for the next decade.
In fact, the most popular slots that Spiller has been going in mock drafts is to San Fran (at either pick), to Seattle at #14, or to Houston at #20.
Part of the problem is that Seattle has two first-round picks, and they're both before our second pick. So they could easily take a player like Berry, Clausen, or Okung at #6, fill a huge need, and still draft a back like Spiller.
But if the reports are true, which peg Seattle as the likely landing for Denver WR Brandon Marshall---and surrendering their #6 pick as a result---suddenly Seattle is drafting behind SF, and has only one 1st-round pick to fill their biggest needs.
If Seattle gets Marshall, I think that means that they won't take use their 1st-round pick on an undersized back, and instead solidify their OL, pass-rush, or secondary with the BPA at #14. Which means we can draft the best tackle available at #13, which the front office is keen on doing anyways, and still have Spiller at #17, who would pretty easily be the BPA.
1. St. Louis: Bradford
2. Detroit: Suh (scary D-Line, btw)
3. Tampa Bay: McCoy
4. Washington: Okung (Campbell's coming back)
5. Kansas City: Davis
6. Denver: Berry
7. Cleveland: Haden
8. Oakland: Campbell
9. Buffalo: Clausen
10. Jacksonville: Griffen or Williams
11. Denver: Bryant
12. Miami: McClain
13. San Francisco: Williams or Buluga
14. Seattle: Williams or Buluga
15. New York: Thomas
16. Tennessee: JPP or Morgan
17. San Francisco: Spiller`
Follow that up with a CB or S in the 2nd round and interior lineman or pass-rusher in the 3rd, and we have a solid, solid draft.
